dancing! at the disco

mommy's mommy came from illinois on wednesday. we call her grandma sugar, because she's so sweet, and she smells good, too. she sold her summer house up in michigan and bought a house two blocks away from us. this trip is for the coming of thanksgiving. family, food, and recognizing your blessings. the weather is cold, the skies are darker, and the air constantly smells of marshmallows roasting in the fireplace. 

every night we go to grandma's house and eat dinner and put together puzzles. we play the "how many words can you make out of this" game and we watch our favorite cop shows. the mentalist is amazing. amen. there's talk of sports, home decoration, food, and fun, and there's always an oreo in there somewhere. 

we go scavenger hunting and find old photo albums, unearthing memories from 'back-in-the-day'. and last night, we unearthed something new. grandma's record player. 
a bookshelf loaded with reminders of the 1950's, 60's, and 70's. and you can guess what happened next. i picked one out, switched on the turntable, and pressed play. let the dancing begin. of course Joy appeared out of nowhere and began to dance the way only six year olds dance. one hour of nat king cole, frank sinatra, sammy davis jr, and the top disco bands from the 1970's {whose names i do not know}. 

you can guess that i spontaneously made the decision to play these records at my fifteenth birthday party. you guessed correctly. i am now a part of an age that i was never able to experience {oh the horror of being born in the 90's} and i am quite le happy. 

number seven of fifteen before fifteen: complete

and now if you'll excuse me while i admire this cleverness:
-kiss kiss kiss, hug lincoln logs-
{pee ess: i'm making an etsy. no, i'm not selling anything [yet] but i would like to sponsor some blogs/etsy shops so we can have some giveaways in the future. how does that sound? also, that's what the poll is for. to name my future etsy shoppe. be excited.}

    This was a lovely post. And so was yesterday's. I love records so much! That's great about the Etsy shop! I'd love to help sponsor. Also, white chocolate is great.. especially melted onto fritos or popcorn.
