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:


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!



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.

    I love the 2 hours of playing so you and hubby could sleep in. Our girls are into watching cartoons on the iPad. We, hubby and I, absolutely love it on Sat and Sunday mornings. Snnooooozeee!

    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!

    Awwwwww…number 1 melted my heart! The orcas must’ve been amazing and honoured to have made your list…even though it was via LIttle J. 😀

    What an amazing place you live to see Orcas swimming by! I hope to visit there someday.

    Number one…oh, be still my heart. My boys used to say things like that to me. Sigh.

    Our neighbours had a pear tree growing up – it was awesome. Yum! I would totally “borrow” all the Reese’s Pieces too.

    Love pears!! And even more, I love lego that distracts little ones! So glad to have an alternate idea to James Bond, because I’m ignorant about James Bond. :) I’d better start working on those fictional bits soon, though–might take awhile!

    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.

    Wow, seeing orcas just like that is awesome! If I’m lucky on a walk, I might see some deer or maybe a heron, but that’s about it. I definitely have to move. Any spare rooms? 😉
