Back in the days of 1998.....

So, I do believe that it has been since 1998 that the Oblad family has taken a family picture...Riley was itty bitty, I had nasty 8th grade Brinley hair, Casey was the size of a peanut, mom had long hair, Kenzie was wearing clogs and socks...can I just say denim and Old Navy button ups???!!! Soooo many changes y'all!!! You try and count them!

Actually, we did take a picture in the Nelson's front yard at Tay and Mandy's wedding, which was still almost 5 years ago but still!!! There have been 6 children born since... I do like myself in that picture I might add...that never happens!!!! I hope you guys aren't waiting for me to get married to take a new one because that could be YEARS from now...Let's do it A-Sap!!!

We just all need to get together at the same time...all of us...Impossible..."for a plain yellow pumpkin to become a golden carriage...Impossible"...doesn't that just put visions of Leslie Ann Warren in your head? It does for me. Then I start thinking of Clue..."Who are you? Perry Mason?!"

Why would he want to kill you in public?

PS I figured out how to "add friends." You just link them on the side of your page. Ordinary kid stuff.

I just bought that movie at the Target. $7 dollah can you believe et. I do like that flick...hey we do need a pic. It will have to be at the next Holiday. So sad to say. Okay...QUIET, I MEAN IT!.... "Anybody want a peanut"

It's not going to happen Ashley. Plain and true fact. I have been asking my mom for the last 5 years to take a BIG family picture so we would make sure we had one before Grandpa or Grandma died. Now look where we are. There is always weight to be lost, babies to be had, and spouses to be found! We just need to get our sorry mom's to commit, take a big fam picture, and then separate fam pics. Can we do it?

Eliza said...

I have to lose weight first!

Well, we were gunna take a picture at Thanksgiving with G-pa and G-ma, but some people didn't want to and kids were falling asleep. I have been asking my mom to take one forever so that we can get rid of that one were I am so fat, look like Snow White, and my hair looks like that little fuzz ball from The Black Crystal...not cool! She says that she won't take one until she looses weight, which I'm sure she has been trying since I was born! Not gunna happen. I agree with KJ 100%.

how about everyone meets at disneyland and we take a huge family picture there!! no one can complain at disneyland..its the rule

Eliza said...

YES....and with lots of people there...the ones who want to HIDE can hide in the back!

Alli Fantastico said...

How about the one with the biggest butt takes the picture! Ok, I'll practice saying "Say cheese, jerks" since that would be um...me.

Alli Fantastico said...

btw, I think the Disneyland idea is the best. We should do one monthly for a whole year ok! Great!

-KJ said...

Great idea! So who is standing in front? The best part is that there are enough people there so the MPWSC (Married People With Small Children)can actually go on the big kid rides!!! Hooray! Should we all wear neon yellow so we can find eachother later on?

Ash-ah-lee said...

sounds good to me y'all!!! Alli awesome! Um yes we should wear neon yellow (Hypercolor to be exact) and then we can meet at the castle for lunch...it is easy to spot but hard to find. remember that?

-KJ said...

Yea, it will be awesome when we all get schweaty pits and backs from running ride to ride and it turns bright pink. When that happens we will know it is the right time to take the picture.

Eliza said...

bring the power bars because I am gonna be doing some speed walking mah self!

-KJ said...

do you think we will need sweat bands?

Ash-ah-lee said...

matching BRAIDED schweat bands PLEASE!!!

Mandy said...

well im glad that idea was a hit...

Ash-ah-lee said...

mos def!

Eliza said...

It would also look good in the family picture (the braided sweat bands) if we each had on a different color of the rainbow!! Pretty huh?

Eliza said...

Pastel rainbow at that!

Ash-ah-lee said...

i just had a vision of "Mousercise" yay for braided sweat bands!!! pastels even better!!!

Lyd said...

My internet went down so I didn't get my nice accessory in. There would also have to be the nice hot pink diamond studded shirt loop so that our shirts wouldn't snag anything as we went running by! And I would be lifting my leg for a good fart while we are going our "Mousercise" with out braided sweat bands.

Ash-ah-lee said...

Yes....I also had the thought of that Lydee Cakes!!!
