A few weeks ago we talked about our most embarrassing moments and boy were they funny! This week the topic is: Favorite Childhood Memory.
I grew up in a development and there was tons of kids so I have soooo many fun memories. I’m not sure if this is my favorite but it’s definitely up there. We were so bad (don’t judge me!). LOL I’m the youngest of 4 girls and when my parents left us home, we used to go crazy. Our absolute favorite thing to do was to make prank phone calls. More specifically, we used to LOVE sending taxi cabs to peoples houses. Well, there was this family down the street who were……..errrrr……..well…….a “target” for this sort of thing. One day we sent 5, yes you read that right, 5, cinco, cinque………..5 taxis to them. And they all showed up at THE SAME TIME! I remember sitting on my front steps with my sisters and laughing as they all lined up in front of their house beeping their horns. LOL So bad I tell ya but by far one of my favorite childhood memories.

all the kids from the neighborhood would gather at the vacant lot to play ball. there was a big tree that was home base. the tree is gone, and there are houses in that lot now, but the memories will always be there.
I think mine is the time I sat on some eggs at my aunt’s house (she had chickens) hoping to make them hatch. Let’s just say it didn’t work out!
I love your blog. It is so much fun to read and your pictures are very good!!!
Thanks so much for hosting! My favorite childhood memory is of Christmas when I was four. I received a huge teddy bear from my sweet daddy that I had been coveting for about a year. It was such a fun surprise: we went out for dinner that night at a fancy-schmancy restaurant, and they had the bear sitting in my seat with a big bow around his neck. 🙂
Playing church in the bedroom and you were dancing and bounced backwards and banged your back into the dresser.
And making the tape….”Emmaaaannnuel. Emaaaaannnnuel. Wonderful, Counselor…Fttttttt.”
Thanks for hosting! I can’t think of a favorite childhood memory, although I must have had one! hhhmmm…
now following –
One of my favorite group of memories (is that possible?) is remembering how my dad read stories. He has a great voice and always did character voices. He also loved to sing (on key or not) and we would sing funny old folk songs in the car on trips we’d take as a family. We used to spend a lot of time in the car because apparently gas used to be cheap and driving places was a cheap way to entertain a family of five. Who woulda thunk?
I found your blog from Crazy Daisy’s “blogging blunder” so it was probably good that she made the blunder! I now follow both your and your husbands blog! I love New Friend Friday, I’m going to put your button on the side of my blog, thanks!
One of my favorite memories of my childhood is one that I used to DESPISE! My parents were planning to build their dream home, so for years (really -like…five!) my mother would cart my sister and I around in the car looking at houses after school! It’s one of my favorite memories now because my mother and I would talk about the things we liked and didn’t, and now that I’m a grown up -I ride in the car and think of her, AND of what I like about the houses I’m seeing! LOL. My DH says I’m turning into her…. We’ll see!!
Thanks for your comment on my blog, I was in Long Island city and we visited all of the sights in New York, New York. It was so fun and my first trip there. y daughter lives in Hershey PA and she was with me and now I am at her home visiting her. As far as one of my favorite childhood memories, I think it would be one of helping my grandfather with trailing sheep. I know that sounds strange but he owned a lot of sheep and when it was time to move them to the summer range to the winter range, he would let us grandkids come a long and experience what it was like to be on a horse and trail the sheep.
We used to love making crank phone calls too! That really takes me back!
Happy Friday and thanks for hosting today!
Just found you today. So, I’m late linking up, but I’m doing it anyway.
It’s hard to pick a memory!
The post I put on for today was done even before you asked your question…and was just so fitting! I remember a lot about like on the school yard when I was a kid. It may not all have been fun, but I remember more good than bad.

LOL….I am not sure I could even begin to top that one. I have alot of great memories….my earliest was when I was 2 we lived acorss the street(dead end) from my grand parents. I would put my boots and jacket on, open the door and head to grandmas for hot chocolate and cinnamon toast. I can remember my dad coming after me, I made it to grandmas door before dad could get me and was saved, cause you know grandma told him to leave me alone.
I’m giving you the Versatile Blogger Award! Check out my blog for details. 🙂 Have a nice weekend!
You crack me up! Just before my senior year in high school my parents moved us from subdivision suburbia in California to 60 acres in Oregon to build a house and a business. I was devastated! Talk about culture shock! BUT, me and my sisters have such fond memories of our country life we compiled them in a handmade book for this last Christmas. I married the neighbor’s son and have lived in Oregon ever since.
I received the Versatile Blogger award from Sweet European Dreams and have passed it along to you.
