These Are A Few Of Our

Favorite Things!

Since today is 1/11/11, I figured I should have some kind of mind blowing, life changing, make the world better, soul searching kind of post.  Um yeah...don't have one of those up my sleeve right now. But I think this one is just as good. It's one of my favorite "re-occurring" posts I do each year!

A few Januarys ago I started a tradition where at the start of each year, I ask the kids for answers as to what their favorite things are and then write them down. I think it's so fun to see what changes and what stays the same as they grow. Following are the exact words that came out of their mouths after I asked each question. The pictures were taken this morning before school. (Isn't picnik.com's "Eye Bright" tool awesome?!) I told each of them to just "Give Mommy a nice smile." Apparently, Wyatt thinks nice = frame my face with my hands! I had to laugh out loud.

I hope he forever wants to be no one... just Wyatt.

What a great idea! Those will be really fun to look back at. I wonder what I was thinking back then...
