Thought this was funny, just had to share.....

You know you're in 2006 when:

1. You accidently enter your password into the microwave
2. You haven't played solitaire with real cards in years
3. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of 3
4. You e-mail the person who works at the desk next to you
5. Your reason for not staying in touch with friends and family is that they don't have e-mail
6. You pull up in your own driveway and use your cell phone to see if anyone is home to help you carry in the groceries
7. You communicate with your kids through text messages and answering machine messages
8. Leaving the house without your cell phone, which you didn't have the first 20-30 years of your life, is now a cause for panic and you turn around to go get it
9. You get up in the morning and go online before getting your coffee
10. You start tilting your head to smile :)

So funny.....so true

Bringing in the New Year with a few nuts......

Silly String........

Silly Hats......

Can't think of a better place to be than with my crazy family. My uncle brought some fireworks to add some spark to our evening, and my dad taught us all how to play poker like the pros.....

My sister schooled us all.....

A tiny but slightly violent pillow fight resulted in two big bowls of chips on the floor.....

But that was a small mess compared to the confetti all over the floor, not to mention in the lungs......

This morning we all slept in, then me, my hubby and daughter went to check out the centennial gathering at Archibald park. We teamed up with my hubby's family and made a snow sculpture of the centennial 100 logo. It was a blast.....

Look at us go! ........

2006.......Wow. So many changes, and so many things to look forward to. As the time seems to fly by, I want to remember where I came from, and always appreciate how far the love of my Lord has brought me. Many many blessings to you as you embark on this new year!

You know you grew up in the 80's if......

You ever ended your sentence with "psych"

You can sing the rap to "the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air"

You solved the Rubics cube.....by peeling off the stickers

Three words: M.C. Hammer

You can sing the entire theme song! to "Duck Tales"

The crypt keeper really freaked you out

You got super-excited when it was Oregon Trail day in computer class at school

You wore a Jordache jean jacket and you were proud of L.A. GEAR

Your mother wouldn't let you have garbage pail kids

You remember reading "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing" and all the Ramona books

You wanted to be a Goonie

You still get the urge to use "NOT" at the end of every statement you make

You remember the craze, and then the banning of slap bracelets

You can remember what Michael Jackson looked like before his nose fell off

You thought your childhood friends would never leave because you exchanged "friendship bracelets"

You remember Popples, Rainbow Bright and MY Little Pony

You remember the beginning of New Kids on the Block, and you had a favorite.......
