This might be hard for some to believe, especially the movie lover, but I have never seen The Sound of Music. (a picture here would be cool, but i haven't figured that out yet. ;-)).................
That is until today. It is cold and rainy out so I thought today would be a perfect movie watchin' day. I was looking for something that the boys and I could watch together, something that would keep their attention. There it was on the shelf......The Sound of Music.....So, the boys and I got all we needed to cuddle up and get started, our blankets, pillows, drinks and snacks. Michael, sitting on my left, is saying, "I don't like it" one minute and the next he is mesmerized by the singing. Jesse was too. Now, I will say that after about an hour, they needed a break so we pushed pause and did some jumping and running around for a bit. Okay, there were a couple of breaks, but each time we got a little farther, and finally finished up the movie. They loved it and so did I, even though it took most of the day. Even though I haven't seen it before, most of the music was familiar. My poor husband will now have to listen to me try to yoddle and sing as I try to impersonate Julie Andrews. And for those of you that have heard me sing a little Whitney, well you know just how painful that might be.
