101 in 1001

I am jumping on the 101 in 1001 train. The only way goals get accomplished is by making goals in the first place right? So instead of doing a 101 in 1001 for me, I did it for Caroline. You can see it there at the bottom of the blog, the 101 things I hope we can accomplish together in 1001 days. Nifty huh? Check 'em out, the whole list is down at the bottom of the page, where it will remain and be updated along the way. I had a great time writing the list and even more fun thinking about actually doing the things listed. It blows my mind that by the end date of this list Caroline will be nearly three and a half?!?! Remember Ferris? "Life goes by pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." I don't want to miss any of it.My favorites from the list are:

Catch snowflakes on our tongues
so much fun and they end up on your lashes too
Go Sledding
Brett and I spent quality time doing this together over and over and over
Put the tree topper on
my favorite because I got hoisted to the top of the tree by my Dad
Get a piece of mail delivered to her
thrilling to any kid!
Teach her how to say her last name
It will be cute to see her learn this
Show her my pointe shoes
what ballerina doesn't want to show her shoes to a little girl?
Martha's Vineyard
a special place
Pierce ears
if for no other reason than she won't get mistaken for a boy anymore =)
Fancy Tea
we might need hats
Give her a brother or sister
We aren't in a rush on this, but the bond we have with our own siblings is so strong, despite the distance between us. We love them so much and want her to be able to have that same connection to another person.
