What's Your Favorite...

Friend. You have to go check out the new challenge that TAAFOMFT posted. And the prizes are so fun... make sure you head over to check out who won the Favorite Memory Challenge and see the Favorite Friend layouts from the design team. Here's mine:

This one was such a pleasure to do... because every day I hear Rainee say, 'Mommy, you know you're my best friend!'... could life get any better than that? Rainee always tells me how much she loves me and how no matter how old she gets... I will always be her best-est friend! What a wonderful thing for a child to say... I love how sincere she is... I love that even though she now has several friends at school... I'm still her favorite. I feel privileged to be her first best friend...

When it came to picking the photo for this layout, I had Rainee help me. We pulled out disks and sat down at the computer, then went through a ton of photos... but when we got to this one... she said - - 'That's the one, mommy! That's me and my best friend!'

Well what she didn't know, and I told her, is that this is photo is a favorite of mine... this photo was taken on Mother's Day! Because it was such a gorgeous day, after our Mother's Day lunch, Steve decided we were going to do something fun and took us to Tom's Farm. I love that place, besides having the best fruits and veggies... on the weekends it's hopping with live music, horsey rides, a farm animal petting zoo, balloon animals, magic shows, face painting and fun craft booths... it's such a fun way to spend an afternoon.... it was the perfect choice for our day. Anyway, I always make sure, Rainee and I take a Mother's Day photo together and when we got to Tom's Farm it hadn't happened yet, but when Rainee saw the giant chicken she decided it was the perfect spot for a photo with mommy. So there we are standing in front of this giant chicken... and Rainee making cluck-cluck chicken sounds... it was just too cute!! I love this photo, I love that she picked it out for the favorite friend layout and I love the memories it holds.

I'm looking forward to seeing what you all come up with for this Favorite Friend Challenge at TheseAreAFewOfMyFavoriteThings. Have a lovely evening.
