'STAY AWAY FROM THE TREE!', or why Dickidoo has premature gray hair.

I found this video stashed in a Walmart bag with years and years of memories.  Dickidoo took all of the Oompas down to the High School following a light overnight flurry just after Christmas in 2001.  Rocky, who was only 6 at the time, side swiped a tree on her way down.  Miraculously she was unharmed, but poor Dickidoo spent the rest of the day trying to keep the Oompas away from the tree... to no avail.  At one point you can actually see Gabe scoot over at the top of the hill to get closer to the tree.  Rocky was the MVP of the day in her siblings eyes, but I still wince every time I watch this video.

Ow, my ribs hurt just watching that. Fun music and sound effects. Although, when that second piece of music starts, you're supposed to speed up the picture so everyone looks like they're running around manically.

Didnt get to see this because it takes too long to load. Like the family picture around the pizza. Like that you have lots of dust bunnies in your house. Makes me feel normal.
