Blog Worthy

It's been awhile... in fact, a LONG while... since the last time I blogged! Lots has happened since the last time I blogged, but I thought I'd start with some "blog-worthy" material... like Michael Jackson!! HA!

Michael Jackson's "Thriller" cassette tape was my very first one!! I am seriously convinced that this is where my love for music began.

I loved his music and so did B. Anyone that knew B when he was little probably remembers him like the pic below... entertaining everyone & singing Michael Jackson. Rumor has it that he wanted the Michael Jackson red jacket SO BAD and his parents wouldn't buy it for him... so he put a note on his door that read: "DO NOT come in here unless you buy me the Michael Jackson jacket!" (I bet they really wanted to get it for him after that).

Which brings me to today... MJ's music (especially the "Number Ones" album) is one that you will hear often while we are driving in the car or walking by both kids' rooms as they are blaring it on their Ipods trying to do the moon walk just as we did as kids (I'm still trying to get it down). It's funny that they like his music too. It's only natural that we would have to BUY the MJ movie "This Is It" yesterday and watch it with the kids. B and I had already seen the movie, but the kids had not. They were ready... so, we had a small movie premiere last night which included grilled cheeses and tomato bisque soup with homemade croutons. Lexie got ready by making her daddy this book:

I think she got tired of drawing all those people :)

It was a GREAT night!!!
