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 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.......


  1. K, so there OUR crazy family with fire works, silly string, and a whole bunch of nonesense......those pics were GREAT by the way!!!! WHAT A FUN NITE


    and then there's your "moore" activity....
    "let's carve an snow sculpture"
    it's just such a contrast!
    you get the best of both worlds!
