When Bethany R. nominated me for this, I went over to her blog and immediately a huge grin broke out on my face. I am going to have a lot of fun coming up with answers for this tag... I thought. And I have! (Even though it took me an embarrassingly long amount of time to answer them...) Enjoy reading some of my earliest memories! :D
1. What is your earliest memory?
Our whole family got sick with the flu at my oldest brother's eight-year-old birthday trip. (That means I was just over two years old.) Yeah, that was not fun. We had just eaten taco salad too...just saying, Mexican is NOT fun to throw up and I had to share a bucket with Mom 'cause there wasn't enough to go around. XP
2. What is your earliest memory of a birthday?
I got a rolling pin when I was five. It was my first "big girl" present. I thought I was SO grown up to get one. ;)
3. What is your earliest memory of a food?
I remember always getting an orange in my Christmas stocking.
4. What is your earliest memory of a gathering?
When our family got together with relatives from both sides and we had Thanksgiving at our church since there wasn't room for all of us in anyone's house.
5. What is your earliest memory of family?
Other than parents or siblings I assume? Probably when they all came over for either birthdays or holidays.
6. What is your favorite memory?
There's so many good ones I really can't choose. I really loved when I could hold babies and have them fall asleep on me because they felt safe with me. :)
7. What is your earliest memory of a gift?
I don't know whether this was truly my earliest memory of a gift, but I remember being really excited when I got my very first My Little Ponies from my Great Grandpa Dill one Christmas. Yep, I loved horses even back then! :)
8. What is your earliest memory of an embarrassment?
Surprisingly, I actually don't remember being really embarrassed when I was little. I think things like that sort of just rolled out of my memory. Sorry for the disappointment. ;)
9. What is your earliest memory of when you were scared?
I remember having very vivid dreams when I was little and some of those were nightmares. I do know I woke up a couple times crying and/or screaming. My active imagination wasn't always a gift.
10. What is your earliest memory of a camp?
Having to leave in the middle of the night half way through our church's annual Family camp because it was pouring down rain and WOULDN'T STOP. Later, people who had stayed told us that they wished they had left too, because the rest of the time was miserable.
11. How young were you when you received Christ? (optional)
I was six. :)
Hope you enjoyed those answers! I won't nominate any one in particular, because I think you all HAVE been nominated by someone already...but if you want to, go ahead and answer the questions, either on your blog or in a comment. I don't care. :)
