Happy 40th Anniversary to Mom and Dad!

As you well know, from my invites and profuse emails, we had a surprise 40th Anniversary Party for Mom and Dad on March 14. It was TOTALLY a surprise. I was totally shocked, but we pulled it off. They had NO IDEA!! It was an idea I had in January, and it took until March 14 to hammer out the details. I wanted to rent the Legion Hall and cook all of the food myself and be the hostess with the mostest. Rhonda talked me down from that ledge. (Thanks,'re a good 'ern.) Anyway, here are some highlights of the big event.
Mom's surprised face! Sweet cousin Lonnie in the background.

Andy pickin' and a grinnin'.
Emma playing with Roy. He is so amazing with her, he so put her at ease in front of the group.

Bad photographer. Great moment. It was sorta hectic. Sorry it's blurry.

Dad thinking "Holy Cannoli, what have we got ourselves into?" Honored Guests - Kim and Brent Smith

More honored guests. Roy and Leanna McMasters.

And even more honored guests. WE are a blessed family, indeed. :) Wish you all could have joined us. It was a great evening.

Do me a favor.

I am wondering if, when you read Granny Goose's recent St. Patty's Day post, that you laughed until real tears streamed down your face and you nearly peed? Holy cannoli. That was funny. Also, check out Annie Woo's blog...she has a fun "vote on a shoe" feature. It was a GREAT GREAT idea. She's smart, that one. :)

Sus opiniones por favor...

Ah kay, I need your opinion....

I am thinking facebook, but also thinking myspace. No offense to those myspacers out there, but it seems seedier, and cheesier. Facebook seems more grown up and less like....sexually charged. You dig? So, what do you guys think? Which do you use? Why or why not? Please break into small groups, discuss and report your findings. Thank you.

(I am TEACHING courses this year, don't I sound so professor-ish? No? I don't think so either.)
