Monday Listicles

Monday hoping and skipping is to commence in 5,4,3,2…

Welcome. How are you? How was Halloween? How much of your kids candy have you eaten already? Don’t deny it, a caterpillar will fail to turn into a butterfly if you lie! For example I pinched all of Reese’s Pieces from my boy’s stash. It is only fair I think for us to get a cut of their catch right?

So this week we are sharing 10 Amazing Memories from a Not So Distant Past. Suggested by our fabulous one and only Ducky this topic is a sure winner.

I am so excited about next week I am going to jump right to it. Anja send me a great idea


but then she emailed me and came up with another one and I cannot make the decision between the two so I will let you chose:

A. 10 THINGS JAMES BOND OR ANY SECRET AGENT
OR
B. 10 FICTIONAL FACTS ABOUT YOU ( BUT ONE MUST BE TRUE AND WE WILL TRY TO GUESS IT!)

Right now, let’s remember what recently made us happy. Here is my list.

 
Make a list, check it twice, link it up. Read others. Have fun!

  
 

LIST OF 10 GREAT NOT TO DISTANT MEMORIES

1. Just yesterday Little J told me as I tucked him in: I love you mommy. You are very funny. You make me laugh all the time.
2. A few Sundays ago, after we received the biggest box of Legos from Diane my son woke up and played with them quietly in his room for 2 hours and my husband and I slept in!
3. Watching a pod of orcas passing by as we played on the beach this summer.
4. Eating the first few pears that grew on our tree. I turned it into this dessert.
5. Last night’s date night.
6. Hanging out with Ally and Rachel in Seattle one fine afternoon.
7. Ballet show Little J put on for me a few weeks ago.
8. Getting an amazing email from Alison few weeks ago.
9. Trail running with Little J and Big M one warm Saturday in October.
10. Getting ‘lost’ on our hike a few weekends ago. Little J led us out of the forest.

    You don’t want to know how much candy I’ve eaten! And, Little J is so sweet…my kids usually tell me that I’m weird 😉
    That’s awesome about the Legos! And holy cow that picture!!! Amazing!

    Next week sounds so fun!! I’ve always wanted to be a secret agent. I love your list… Tucking J in… Hiking…it really is the “small” moments that make up our happiest days. Thank you again for going with my topic suggestion!

    What fun and wonderful memories! I love it when my kids put on shows for me. I love to see their creativity even though sometimes their shows go on forever!

    A great list! I’m especially fond of the 2 hours of sleeping in – which sadly will not likely ever be on my list given I am outnumbered by children. There isn’t enough Lego to entertain them all!
    A statement I never thought I’d utter as I was cleaning it all up yesterday.
    I’m up to my eyeballs in poetry on my blog for a November challenge…but going to try to link up at some point this week.
