Today I Met the Boy I'm Going to Marry..."not what you think...I've already done that!"

My baby performed in her High School Musical this weekend.  It was called The Leader of the Pack...the Ellie Grinwich Story. My baby was Ellie. I didn't even know who Ellie Grinwich was so I Googled her and learned a lot. She wrote and produced many famous songs with Jeff Barry such as Da Doo Ron Ron, Do Wah Diddy Diddy, Going to the Chapel, I Can Hear Music, Leader of the Pack...just to name a few. She has practiced 4 NIGHTS/week for 10 weeks.  So the fam has been kept in the dark for a few months.  We knew no lines, no songs, no costumes, no nothing!  We got to watch and it was FABTABULOUS! We were so proud of all of the cast (but especially Ellie!) She had a huge crowd of family there to support her (Thank you everyone for coming! Darb appreciated it so much!). It was a lot of singing and dancing with a band down in the pit which made it even more exciting. Here's some pics to share our weekend with you.

 Ellie and Jeff begin their relationship!

 Today I met the boy I'm going to marry!

 Going to the chapel and I'm gonna get married!

The marriage breaks up!
This Momma honestly thought she was having a break down or stage fright or nerves and was ready to bolt from my seat, knock people down, climb over seats, pull my baby off that stage...But oh NO NO NO...this girl was just in character over losing her man! And yes...I'm glad I didn't make a fool of myself.
