I'm thinking our selections for Family Surfing Night must be a very strange glimpse
But, you know ...
there's just SO MUCH good stuff out there :o)
I missed posting about our last Family Surfing Night ... no one sent me their links ... so I shall mention that Nathan won, but post my own entry because it was awesome ...
Family Surfing Night is really an opportunity for me to inflict videos from my childhood upon my own children. I've told my kids about this Sesame Street video for years ... apparently it had a big impact on me as a five year old. I'm not sure which was more fun ... seeing it again, or watching the confused why-is-this-funny faces of my family as they watched it.
However ... we have this video to thank for a wonderful new tradition in our family:
the hand hug
Again, I must say that Family Surfing Night is fun for the whole family.
I have teenagers.
THEY ask ME when are we going to do surfing night.
we gather in the family room with our laptops.
we surf the web for 15 minutes.
at the end of 15 minutes, everyone shows the best/funniest/favorite thing they found while surfing the webbernets and we vote for the best one.
Videos are limited to (approximately) 3 minutes in length.
The WINNER shall be the proud and much envied recipient of the Family Surfing Night Traveling Trophy, to be affixed to the refrigerator with their name for all to see:
We must revisit these rules, as some videos are longer than the suggested 3 minutes ... and usually everyone comes to the family room having already trolled the internet for a winning entry. But anyway ...
From Melissa ... another Sesame Street Classic ... my first favorite song!
(and again, my family looks confused ... which i find hilarious ... i can't stop laughing)
From Aaron - one word ... BANANA!!!!
From Dan - super cool animation ...
From Ben - strange teenager internet humor ...
From Nathan - even stranger teenager internet humor ...
From Abbie - a laughter chain that will make you ... laugh!
And the winner is ...
give that boy a hand hug !!
