Row 2, Seat 18

AnniversaRay

Alright people.  You know the drill.  Cell phones off, kids and dogs muzzled and get your butts in your seats.  I'm going to fix myself a cocktail and enjoy.  Where's my visine?

With no further ado, let the show begin...

Misty said...

So Bummed!!! My computer is so old it won't play the show. It downloaded but it keeps stopping and restarting again & again. Having a glass of wine and hoping it will play for me :(.

cristine said...

Great job on the video.
You guys look great(unfortunately I'm having an audio playback problem on Itunes, which means no sound :( - unfortunately my lip reading is a little rusty).
Congrats to everyone

Claudia said...

Tera... I'll do another random acts when I go to the airport to pick up Katie.

That means four more

Julie said...

cassie p said...

I just finished watching it, and .....AHHHHHHH that was SO FUN and SO CUTE! You all did a great job!

CONGRATS to all who won an award, all who were nominated, and all who are involved in HLA!

THANKS to those of you who nominated me for an award, it is an honor.

I LOVE YOU HLA!

Misty said...

I will do a RAK..Calling my girls school in the am and buying coffee for the ladies in the office...Surprise!!

Julie said...

SHOOT! i forgot about the yellow words!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

and i was so excited for them this am
.... that's what posting before coffee does to you!

i second the "please give katie a big hug" motion!

Kristen Giger said...

Treye is a taker, too.

3 more people to do RAKs today and we'll hit 18!!! WHO'S IN?

HLA doesn't turn down a challenge...I know you better than that!

Julie said...

acceptance speech to come later ... the benefits of not doign this live - i can think about it a bit!

cassie p said...

PS I totally missed the yellow words so i am about to watch it again to find them! lol

T N T said...

excellent work, everyone! the show was great. treye and i had a nice night together watching the video.

claudia, matthew is all grown up! too cute :)

Tera said...

i missed the yellow words too...guess i'll have to wait until tomorrow to figure out what's going on!

Chaotic said...

sorry I have been absent so much... work is busy (propane season is winter) so it is hard to hide webtime from boss... sigh... will be back more often & for longer periods of time as work slows down! My RAOK has been delivered (casserole meal for single senior neighbor)

Tera said...

cheryl...did you do a rak today?! i'm still searching for 3 more takers.

cassie p said...

had to watch the end again...LOVE IT!

Didnt find any words...guess I will have to just wait until tomorrow!

Tera said...

i'm off to bed...in hopes that we get 3 others to do RAK!!!

good night all...and happy anniversary.

Kristen Giger said...

NNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

i just hit the x on the download box instead of the minimize button

eknoxuk said...

Hi All! Mike (my husband) and I enjoyed watching! It looks like you had a great time making it and you all deserve recognition for your great and creative ideas!

Unfortunately, I'm not all dressed up due to my big prego belly:) I wish I could have that glass of wine too, I got back home just in time after my 2nd trip to wal-mart tonight because I forgot my wallet the 1st time!

Julie said...

i was watching a second time looking for yellow text. my only thought is that there are words on three different "prizes" as they are shown close to the camera. however, after pausing them at what i thought would be the right time, i couldn't make out any words. kristen ... honestly, im sorry you hit the "x" ....

Peggy said...

That was really, really cute! Well done!

At times I feel my life is kind of funny... I'm glad I can put some smiles on your faces...
DD = dear daughter
DS = dear son
DH = dear hubby

Congrats to all winners!

Very FUN!!!

Chaotic said...

RAK... cards from my new spring series to K & B just bc I am thinking of them and I miss them

Kristen Giger said...
