Blog Carnival...September 1st

This week's blog carnival topic is: Something You Did When You Were A Child That You Will Always Remember

Not to brag, but I had a pretty awesome childhood...there are only a very few moments I remember as being unpleasant...most of the time it was my fault I'm sure :P...but if I could, I know I'd go back and do it all again in a heart beat...I love the saying, "I'd like to go back, not to do anything different, but just to do it all over again"...that is the best way to sum up my life :)

My favorite time of year starts around football season, and ends after my birthday- I could never pick a favorite season, or month, but its a good 4 months out of the year that I enjoy the most...fall, cooler weather, football games, then halloween, thanksgiving, christmas, new years eve and my birthday...what's not to love :)

but the thing that I will always remember from growing up, is going to pick out our christmas tree...we'd get bundled up, and go to the same tree farm every year...the best years there was already some snow on the ground, and we'd find the biggest and most beautiful tree there was...of course the older I got, the more I realized it wasn't that the tree was huge, but I was small :) then we'd get our hot cocoa and wait for the tree to be tied to the roof...

we'd usually go the weekend after thanksgiving, and wait about a week to put it up and decorate it...that was the longest two weeks of my life when I was young :)

we have so many christmas traditions...I could go into them...but no one has a week to read this post :P so I'll stop now...once we get into september, I'll reminisce some more!
