The silly band craze took over at my house this summer when our friends from Canada came to visit Colorado. We hadn't heard of them yet, so of course we had to run out and find these silly rubber bands in all these crazy shapes. When Aspen and Britain started back to school everyone was wearing them and the trading began. I think it lasted a little over a month and then our school band them. We weren't surprised, but the kids sure had fun collecting them and trading them with friends. Oh the fads, wish I could think of something that could make me rich and end up collecting dust after it's all said and done.
