- This is a sponsored posts. I have been paid to tell you about this AWESOME event, but all opinions are my own.
I am amazed at this point how much my kids remember at times, then at other points… and then at other points…they recall nothing (who dumped over the trash can, or snuck the last cookie).
Therefore I try to make as many lasting memorable moments that I can.. especially around the holidays.
I’ve reverted back to a buck-list of sorts…as sort of a to do list of memorable activities. Once upon a time I attempted to have a monthly.. even weekly bucket list.. and you can imagine how well that went over.. not well at all, so I have since regrouped.. and developed a seasonal bucket list. With the holiday’s just around the corner.. or days away.. everything seems to be squeezed in, in order to get everything in, naturally attending a local day long holiday fest and getting to partiate of many of the cherished activities of my youth (ice skating, pictures with santa, outdoor lighted parade, and event outdoor winter fireworks)
