10 things that are sure to put a smile on my face...

 1.  The memory of sledding down the hill after an unusually early snow last December...

2. Cute old photos of the boys...

3. The memory of my stepsister and I riding in star jet number 1 at Disney World when we were teenagers...the young guy who was the attendant was a very bad (and hilarious!) flirt.  I think we laughed until we hurt after he looked at the two of us, pointed back and forth at us and said, "I want YOU two girls to ride in star jet Number ONE!"  while giving us a "just between you and me" kind of wink. 

3.  Countless memories and photos of Dixie Dog.

4. The photos that Popaw Bob takes of his four grand young 'uns  every summer on his front porch swing.  This is last year's...

5.  This photo of the Dracenator's first roller coaster ride two years ago.  The look on Charlie's face is priceless because this coaster was too darn small for him.  Just after this pic was snapped, Dev's hat flew off his head, never to be seen again...

6.  Memories of being in the beautiful British Virgin Islands on our honeymoon two years ago this week...

7. Memories of being on the beach in southern Spain one year ago this week...

8.  This photo I took of Brisco Darling the morning after we adopted him...

9.  Seeing Charlene Darling in a dress.  I swear, she really likes wearing them! She comes running to me when she sees me pull one out. 

10.  This old photo of Steph (my sis from the star jet photo) and me in what we called our "hee haw" pants! 

This post was part of Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop, prompt number 3. Write a list of 10 things that are sure to put a smile on your face when you are not happy.
