This past weekend was some serious fun. Any weekend with hubby's family is a bona fide riot, but this time the fun levels flew off the charts.
A few highlights (plus some inside jokes, sorry)
:: apples and caramel dip :: "give me the bird" :: memorable one-liners during scum :: birthday cake for Jesus :: the electric slide :: Seth's over-qualification as a supplier for Evian :: picking the peanuts out of peanut candy clusters :: MC Hammer :: sweating with Debbie Siebers :: "even after death, the language of sisters endures" ::
Mostly we listened/danced/sang to tunes from back in the day (bless you youTube and project playlist), and disturbed Mom Owens with how many lyrics-of-questionable-morality we knew by heart. This reminiscing will likely spawn a mini-series, so Be Prepared.
PS I was saddened to discover that I was the only one for whom this song evoked fond memories. Apparently everyone else in the household was a good little church kid and watched Saved By the Bell. I, on the other hand, was cool. ;)
