Three Things Thursday, 4/17/14

Ahhh, it is Thursday once again, and once again its time for a short list of things I am grateful for and/or that make me happy.


First up is this picture of Lake Winnipesaukee

First off I would like to give credit to my 4th grade teacher for ingraining the spelling of Winnipesaukee (and many other ridiculously hard to spell NH locations, like Kancamagus, into my brain).

I am lucky enough to live in a wonderful location on the Seacoast of NH, and thoroughly appreciate the fact that the White Mountains and Lakes Region of this state (which are gorgeous) are only an hour or so away from us.  My long drive on Tuesday reminded me of how close summer is… I can’t wait to go hiking this year with my fancy new camera and inquisitive little boy 🙂

The next thing on my list is a song….


I seriously love this song, and so do the kids. It comes on and I am instantly happy, plus we then get to have a dance party which is always fun .

Last up….


This not so great picture of my son reading to himself in the corner . He grabbed a book, crawled away, and started reading out loud… Cutest thing ever… And I have no clue where he gets the hiding in corners to read habit from (cough* cough*)
I do absolutely love the fact that he can’t get enough of books already. Now if only he wouldn’t run away when I try to take a picture of him reading while yelling at me in baby-lish. I suspect the translation is “Leave me alone mom, I need my quite time to read this book. It’s about dinosaurs. Jeez. What’s a baby got to do to get a little peace and quiet around here?!?”


That’s it for me for this week…. Like Three Things Thursday?  Want to see MORE things??? head on over to Nerd In The Brain, the originator of the Three Things Thursday idea 🙂
