Standing on the stool stirring the cookie dough.
Drawing the face on the pumpkin to carve.
Ripping open the first present under the tree.
Blowing out the birthday candles.
Clipping playing cards to your bicycle frame with wooden cloths pins and taking off.
Sitting in front of a fan with a friend saying silly things in funny voices.
Connecting the top of the orange hot wheels track to the dinning room table and letting em fly.
Sneaking up, and kicking the can as hard as you can, releasing your friends from captivity.
Taking your mother’s sheets and blankets and turning your room into a secret hideaway.
Pumping that BB gun one last time with all your might.
Sitting on the floor with your best friend with Barbie doll cloths as far as the eye can see.
Looking over the top of your red Battle Ship holder willing the location of their destroyer into your brain.
Walking through the neighborhood in 8 inches of snow to the bus stop, and taking part in the biggest snowball battle in the history of the neighborhood.
Chasing Lightening Bugs around the back yard with a mason jar in one hand and a gold lid in the other.
The entire family sitting down for a home cooked meal in the evening with everyone talking and laughing.
Friday nights at the skating rink.
Playing Monopoly for four hours.
Having a sleepover at your house with 10 of your closest friends.
Being the fastest at Pong in your family.
Sitting in the middle of the street marking out the hopskip lines.
Laying on the floor reading the funnies on Sunday afternoon.
Remembering back to when your Mother, your Father, your two brothers and you, were actually a family.
