{write it down Wednesday}

Documenting the journey of life is one of my passions and greatest desires.  While I have changed the media that I have used from scrapbooks, journals, calendars, photos, blog posts and more, the memories documented have become prized possessions.  My past has influenced the present and is paving the way for my future; I want to know the paths traveled, therefore I write and photograph.

Today's blog post is part of write it down Wednesday where I share current loves and experiences in efforts to document our every day living.

And that my friends, was the end of our interview.  Can I just say this boy makes me laugh! I must give you a little momma insight on the interview questions and answers.  One thing is definitely true, C loves the color orange.   Honestly he has consistently loved the color orange for at least two years.  I think his adoration for the color orange began due to his love of sports balls and a basketball being orange.  His love for orange consumes all areas of his life.  When given a choice, he will always choose orange.  An orange plate, orange cup, orange shirt, orange Popsicle, orange chair, orange crayon, orange jelly, orange candy, any and all things orange.  
As for his favorite food, while he does eat apples and oranges I would say that is favorite food is Greek yogurt.  I limit him to one 5oz container of yogurt a day because he would honestly eat one at every meal. I must document that from the time C was around six months to maybe two and a half years old, he would eat a banana for breakfast.  Today it is hit or miss regarding the consumption of a banana every day. 
I was surprised C said his favorite book is the Veggie Tales book.  We just have two books and they are not read that frequently.  My immediate answer would be books about the dog, Biscuit.  I just pulled a few Biscuit books from my teaching materials early in the week and I can't tell you how many times I have read them in the past few days.
If I was the one to answer the questions, I would say that C's favorite movie was Disney Planes and Disney Frozen.  There was a time that Veggie Tales were C's favorite and he would repetitively ask to watch The Little Drummer Boy, St. Nicholas or any other Veggie Tales movie he could get me to agree on viewing.
Honestly I can't tell you the last time that I ate chocolate with C.  That sure made me laugh and that is why I followed up with another question regarding the topic of chocolate.  What a smartie pants!
Our little love is so sweet and just adores his daddy.  I definitely agree when daddy comes home, C is thrilled and runs/jumps and dances and always yells, "Welcome home, daddy!" Any time that dad is around, you will be sure to find his mini-me not far behind!
I am just head over heals in love with our little boy!  We share some very special moments and I love watching him develop in his character.  While he is reserved, he is very detail oriented in his observations of places and people.  He is become more adventurous and definitely knows how to make his momma nervous while he tests the limits of safety.  We have definitely had our challenges but are thankful for another new day to love, guide, encourage, play and direct our boy!

Until next time...
Enjoy the moment. Cherish the memories. Give thanks. {Written by Faye 2014}

{Tuesday's 10} thoughts

{Tuesday's 10} post series will include listings of 10. Possibly a top ten list, ten photos, ten ideas, ten thoughts on a topic, etc. I am excited to use this post to share my life and interests and I hope you enjoy reading my collections of 10! 

{Tuesday's 10}
a list of ten random thoughts from today

I am thankful my sister gave me the soundtrack to Disney's Frozen movie.  Listening to it has become a reward for my little love when he demonstrates positive behavior choices.

I miss the community I found at NorthRidge MOPS.

We are preparing to plant our first garden. Husband has invested his time and energy into building three raised garden beds. The soil was delivered this past week and last night we purchased items to create a fence to keep wildlife away.  We have definitely poured a lot of money into this new hobby and I hope that our efforts will be rewarded with a fruitful garden!

This month will mark one year of living in our current house.

I think one of our frequent UPS drivers is afraid of our dog or he is lazy.  Somehow our packages are always placed in front of our garage instead of our front door when he makes deliveries to our house.

Today I found a error on a company's website and I called said company to inform them.  Yes, I am that person. 

I need to seriously get reading!  In the last two months I have ordered six books and I have yet to crack the binding on any of them.  Can we say summer bucket list?

Speaking of summer bucket lists, I want to host a party.  Little love and I were browsing the new Oriental Tradings catalog yesterday and we started making party plans. Want to come?!

I am getting old!  If you know me well, you know of Jordan.  Can you believe that Jordan and her sister Kaley graduated 8th grade yesterday?!  That's crazy talk.  What a blessing it was to be their kindergarten teacher!

The last few days little love and I have enjoyed our lunch picnic style on a blanket in the backyard.  It has been wonderful.  Good food, great conversation and quality time.

Well, that's a wrap.  Hope you enjoyed a sneak peek into my life while reading ten random thoughts of today!

Until next time...

Enjoy the moment. Cherish the memories. Give thanks. {Written by Faye 2014}
