Blast from the Past

After school this afternoon, Sarah and I made a quick trip to our local toy store. She has some money from the tooth fairy and grandparents that has been burning a hole in her pocket, and she wanted to buy a charm for her charm bracelet. Anyway, we were looking around and I noticed these little, blue Smurf characters for sale. They're exactly what I used to buy at the mall when I'd get to go with friends on Saturdays. I guess I was probably about 12 or 13, and I had a small collection of them. They probably used to cost about a dollar or two then...now those little blue guys go for $5 each. Does anyone else besides me remember Smurfs? You've probably gotta be at least my age or younger to remember!

Hey Mer,
I do remember the smurfs...one of the highlights to my Sat. mornings back in the day. Just wanted to let you know we did the dry erase markers on the refrigerator tonight and Brandon, I mean Caleb loved it. Actually, at first Brandon thought it was a ploy to have to buy a new refrig. Thanks for the idea!
