The Estajonesiers

When I was a teenager, our family went on a cruise with two other families: the Thackers and the Pedriolis. Rather than being known as the Jones-Thacker-Pedrioli party, we shortened our group name to Jokeroli (pronouced like ravioli, but with joker at the front). It suited us well. 

When my sister became Kari Estabrook and I became Cindy deRosier, we needed a portmanteau for our family. We became the Estajonesiers. Not quite as catchy or succinct as Jokeroli, but it does the job. We even have a theme song, as the Estajonesiers fits perfectly into the chorus of Ta-Ra-Ra-Boom-De-Ay. (I would have sworn it was Tra-La-La not Tra-Ra-Ra, but apparently I'm mixing it up with the Banana Splits theme song.)

Anyway, I don't think I've ever used Estajoniers on a layout, so I used it as the title for a page about our time visiting my family in Idaho last summer

The glittery letters on this page made it tempting to use it for the Glitter square on my BASH-O card, since I don't use a lot of glitter. But I don't have other photos printed that work so well for Family. So that's the square I'm using. One more page until my second BASH-O!
