1980's nostalgia
For those that grew up in the '80's, I came across this link by complete accident today, but thought it was cute and had a chuckle. Smurftastic!!!

"Are we there yet, Papa Smurf?"

My favorite all-time line. I think about it every time we're on our way to a soccer tournament, and the kids start getting antsy.

NO WAY!!! I could make my own Brainy Smurf sweater!!! I can't help but notice this pattern book isn't for sale...LOL... but did you all notice the date on the book... c. 1990?! That is kinda surprising...

Man I LOVED the smurfs!!!

I also loved the smurf's. I wish they were still on tv so my kids could watch it! I still remember the episode where they all turned purple and would say "g-n-a-h" and bite each other's tails.....hehehe

If you can get Boomerang, they still play the Smurfs almost daily. My little one loves Smurfs and Snorks. (She makes me feel REALLY old sometimes...)
