A lot of thought...

So I've been giving this a lot of thought, and I'm gonna need feed back on this issue. I'm taking a family history class this semester and one day (while I happened to be listening) my teacher said perhaps a thing you might do is work on current family history...and that lead me to one thing and another and I thought "maybe I should help create family history and plan a Carlson family reunion!" And I just keep thinking that. So while I was in the shower yesterday I got really excited about it and want to start something in motion. I"m thinking that the summer would probably be best, but not this next summer cause that's too soon. I mean, I'm good at planning parties, but something this big needs time! And as cool as it would be to have it in Alaska where Grams and Gramps are, and where our parents grew up, I think it would be a bit too expensive for everyone to get there. So I'm thinking somewhere in the states, like Utah or something. These are just some of my ideas so far, just the beginning, but if other peeps really want to make this work, I was gonna perhaps get a blog going just for that subject that would be like "reunion central." I'm willing to put a lot of effort into this, because I think it's worth it. The last time we were even remotely all together was for Grandma and Grandpa's 50th wedding anniversary, adn that was almost 12 years ago! I think a few things have changed! Not to mention there are like 1 or 2 additions to the family that weren't there last time! So what do ya think? Yay, or nay?

Sounds rockin!!! I have a really good idea...I think, in order to inspire everyone to get together we should have a wedding, I've chosen you to be the lucky one! So, if you need me to, maybe i could make you a shirt that says something like "Gotta get married by summer 2010!" Bah-ha!

DEFINITE YAY!!!
I'm totally up for it, and I could probably help w/ the planning. I think what people do a lot of the time is start a family reunion fund, that way not just one person has to buy everything. But yeah, that sounds suhweet. AND I'M DUNICE!!! (well, I can't quite figure out what she says there... sometimes it sounds like she says JUDITH, oh well!).
Anywho- love you, love Bananiebutts

And I've watched that sisters video about 7 times and I laugh and laugh...
"so I took it home and I put some honey on it and I ate it... is that a bad thing to do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do?"
