I've always had a weakness for peer pressure! Leave a comment on our blog of a MEMORY that you and I/our family have had together. It doesn't matter if you've known me/us for a short time, or a long time, anything you remember...next, re-post these instructions on your blog and let people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty fun to see the responses. Let's hear them...

Lemonade Anyone!

Rachel, Alex and their friend Maddi were feeling a bit entrepreneurial one Saturday morning and decided to have a lemonade stand. After hustling our neighbors (business was slow so they walked door to door) they made a total of $5.25.

Happy Birthday Papa, 1924 - 2006

Today would have been my dad's 84th birthday. All his grandkids adored him and have many wonderful memories of him, like how he always had cookies and ice-cream at his house and of course they were allowed to eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Whenever the cousins would sleep over at Papa's house all three cousins insisted on sleeping with him and of course Alex would have to be the one that slept next to him with her arms around him all night. I know that was one of his fondest memories of his grandkids. I think there might be a lesson to be learned here … it's the little things that create the best memories for our kids.
