After reading some of the posts today, from Blogging Chicks. I thought I'd post some of
My Favorite Things that I like to do with my kids (my family)!
With my husband, I like doing things with him. Our 7 yr. anniversary is tomorrow, and we haven't always be able to do things we like to do together, but he knows I like to get out! Even though he hates Italian food, if I'm in the mood, he won't complain Too Much! I also like to go with him to Home Depot and Lowes, 2 of his other Home Away from Homes, and I don't complain too much! Neither one of us are big sports fans, we'd rather go to a Music Concert. My favorites would be Country music, his would be '80's Rock Bands or Old School Rap groups!
With my oldest Marissa. She's not a big shopper, she's like me and likes to go places, and enjoys doing things. From the time she was born, I could take her into a restaurant, and she knew how to behave. It helped since I worked in restaurants, and liked to go out to eat! So, when she feels like having Mommy and Me time, Yes, even at 12, she still likes to spend time with me....Actually I'm amazed....but I take her to Olive Garden, which is our favorite restaurant, since my husband hates Italian....and the movies. Usually a Harry Potter, or Lord of the Rings.
My son Joshua, being that he's a sports fan and I'm not, but being his Momma, I'll attend any sports event he's in....Baseball, Soccer, Basketball, Football..I'll be there. Oh he likes to bowl too! I love how when he gets a Strike, and he gets that gleam in his eye, and that happy smile that He did it!
My 3yo Katelyn is the shopper! She loves to shop for clothes, and purses and shoes...She's my girlie-girl. She also likes going to the park and having picnics. Her favorite thing to do is use her imagination, so we have tea parties with her imaginary friends, and play dressup...
Now even though the baby is only 5 mos. old, my favorite things to do with her are cuddling before she takes a nap, feeding her ( she loves to eat!) , she just now learned how to Bounce, so she loves to bounce in my lap! Oh and Bathtime, she does have fun splashing Mommy!
These are a few of the favorite things I like to do with my family!

Going out to eat is the best! I love the Olive Garden's breadsticks. YUM! Your family sounds so cute. :)

Congratulations on your 7th anniversary. With a wee one at home, you might be interested in the (literally) best parenting tip my wife and I ever received. You can read about it in The Five-Minute Drill. It might save you hours of sleep some night - it certainly did for us.
