  1. I love the last point. haha! and I love that the text in your post looks like a tree.

    Great ideas :)

  2. This is really cool.

    Bing Crosby Christmases - yes!

  3. So many of these are part of my childhood memories. Board games were a must in my family too. Pumpkin patches were the one of the things I missed the most when I moved to the city :)

  4. love them all! especially building forts on stormy days :D

  5. What a great list! I have a list of things that I want to do with Raeca this summer and now I want to add some of these!

  6. All great ideas--you'll be busy (and busy is so much better than bored!)
