Get Your Groove Thang On!

Garfield Elementary has figured out one of the easiest recipes for a guarranteed good time.   Me, my guys, music and dancing equals a good night! The Mother and Son dance is a favorite of mine every year, and this one was no exception!
Drew and I thought it was going to be just us this year, but just as we were pulling out of the driveway Garrett decided to join us.
I have loved watching the boys personalities become more defined as they get a little older.  Both of these guys surprised me with their dance moves!  I was seriously cracking up as Drew and some buddies climbed up on top of the bleachers at the front of the stage while Dancing Queen blared through the speakers.
Garrett can wiggle his hips like nobody's business, and even has fun with a few throw back moves like the sprinkler.
Both of the boys were regularly in the center of a large circle just showcasing thier skills.  While so many of the boys were running all over the gym, my guys brought their friends over to where I was and actually wanted to dance with me.  I LOVED it!   Seriously, who can complain about an opportunity to get your groove thang on with two of the cutest boys around?  Not this dancing queen!

The last two weeks have been full.  Full of love, full of laughter, full of peace and full of renewal.  My heart is whole.  We have had lots of family that has come and gone, and it is always amazing to me just how strong family ties can be.  I love my family tree.  The natural branches as well as those that we have grafted in.  I spent Thanksgiving at my parents, in a house full of children

full of family
full of wrestling
full of people playing with their toys
full of food
and full of naps.
We filled my car with women and shopping bags at the end of the day.
I went to bed with heart full of gratitude for the abundance which is mine.
