I got this idea from a few blogger friends who had similar posts. Only since I am super indecisive and can't trim my favorite photos to just ten I thought I would do the top ten moments/memories of 2010 instead so I could display more photos.
1) Dance like there is no tomorrow.
Way back in 2000, one of my favorite songs was 'I hope you dance' by Lee Ann Womack. And if there is a song that captures the theme of living life to it's fullest then I would hope my son would take to heart this one.
2) My water baby.
I have never been much a beachy person. Never did I think it was fun to just lounge around a pool or spend a day tanning at the beach. But along came Ethan and overnight our best vacations have been at beach resorts. Ethan has shown us that even lazy summer days can be fun if you add in some water and sand.
Especially if you cap off a day in the sun with some ice cream (OK, he might have actually learned that from me since ice cream is my all time favorite treat. Considering how often I have it for
dinner dessert it should be considered a new food group).
3) Getting sporty.
Running, climbing, jumping, shooting baskets, scooting. You name it and Ethan wants to do it. Our outdoorsy guy prefers any physical activity to any toy. Why am I not in better shape by now? He is super active and although not yet the most coordinated toddler, he never lets that stop him from trying new things.
4) And super silly.
Speaking of never letting things stop him from doing what he wants, Ethan always makes us smile with his silly side. He likes to make up funny verses to songs or dress up in our clothes and have us play dress up too. I love looking at the world through Ethan's eyes - it makes you stop and just enjoy each moment. So let's get our silly on!
As long as you don't get too mischievous.
We were lucky enough to get to explore
6) Which was made even more fantastic because on some of these travels we got to enjoy with our friends.
7) Mike got married!
My all time favorite holiday. I love everything about Fall: leaves changing colors, pumpkins, apple cider, hay rides, trick-or-treating. Yes I am a kid at heart.
9) Cuddling with my two boys.
10) Spending time with family.
Cheers! And have a fantastic 2011!
