Let the game begin:

1. I miss playing with my cousins ..I was the only girl amongst all the cousins ..lol So we played Hot Wheels ,Star Wars ,kill the man ( kind of like tackle football ) ,We would play Horse and Pig with the basketball ,We would use a tape recorder and one person would be the news reporter and the other like a surfer that was being interviewed ..lol My mom still has those tapes .They are too funny .One of them has me talking like a Valley Girl ...lol I miss climbing trees and hanging out in them for hours ...

2. I have to agree with the missing the house part .I miss coming home from school ,changing in to my swim suit and swimming until dark ...I grew up in Vegas so that was a relief from the heat . I miss hanging out with my best friend Jenn ..I swear we were inseparable for years ..I miss sleep overs and late night phone calls ..

3. I miss the anticipation of everything ..Like birthdays and holidays ..I remember looking so forward to all those things and counting them down .I remember it seemed like they were sooooooo far away from each other ..Now the years just fly ..I miss living for Saturday Morning cartoons ..I would wake up and get me a bowl of cereal and veg out on cartoons all morning ..( until mom and dad got up and going and made us go outside and play ..lol )

4. I miss getting my aunts ,uncles and cousins together and all the families going to Lake Mead to camp and fish all weekend .I miss staying the weekends in Boulder City with my sister (best friend ) Ebony and her parents ..We would take the boat out and just get lost on the lake for the whole weekend ..We would ride out to the middle of the lake and jump in and swim all day ..Then at night we would pull into a cove and camp out ..It was awesome .I miss making up dances to our favorite songs ;like Abracadabra by Steve Miller Band ...



5.I miss baking with my mother. She taught me at a very early age how to make snickerdoodles ..By the time I was 8 years old I could make them totally by myself except turning the stove on and actually putting them in and taking them out ..I still love those today ..MMMMMMMMM I am getting hungry ..I can still smell them cooking ..:) Chef

Thank you Ivy for the tag :) It was fun going down memory lane ..I enjoyed it ...
