Don't you mean (5) boys cuddled up to watch Monster Garage....Dennis, Mark, John, Travis, and Michael???
Glad you guys had such a great time! What a special group you have.

Actually Hollie, at one point there were at least seven guys in that room - including Adam, Jackson, Traig, Brayden, Andrew, John, and Michael. Ellie also had to be a participant - perhaps I should be concerned that she is already drifting to the room that holds all the boys.... (FYI - I think the other boys were watching NASCAR...)

I was mostly focusing on the cuddling.....haha!
But how cute! Now are they interested in Monster Garage because of the Sandra Bullock connection? or is this something that I am going to have to gear myself up for in a couple of years? haha

Michele and Amy are sharing a spoonful of icecream, in case anyone was wondering...
