What made me happy was a new Little Golden Book. I recently found out there is an app for iPhone, iPad for Little Golden Books
Good morning, Ron! You are so right about this generation not knowing the simple things that made us happy. Every Christmas, "Santa" brought us a board game, and that made us happy on rainy days when we couldn't go outside and play. :) Have a great day! xoxo P.S. I just might have to buy some crayons and a coloring book today!!!!!
Yes you are so right! I wanted that big box of crayons with every ounce of my being. The other day I was somewhere and I commented that it smelled like crayons. The other lady there smiled and said, "It does!" Guess you have to be a little older to get that.
New crayons were the best and a new dress for the first day of school!
My favorite scent, just edging out play-dough.
Yes! New crayons were the best, especially accompanied by a new coloring book. I'd have to say however I lived for the day my grandparents would bring me a new set of paper dolls!!!
This is so great!!! And I love reading other comments too. Board games are big with us. We try to make a game night once a week and limit iPAD time - too crazy. My favorite was when Dad went to get gas, he would take me and we would get a glass bottled coke, peanuts and sit on our porch and have a snack. I didn't get to have soft drinks much and if we did we had the cans (remember new coke???? yuck).
Yes...I loved pulling out my favorite crayon color combinations. My sweet mom gave us each a big box every Christmas. I also loved climbing trees and hiking in the mountains where the air was cooler than where we lived in California.
Ah ha- how true! I was always so impressed with the big box of 64! We had a lot of coloring books and would get together with a couple of friends and color together. Truly good times!
So true, Ron! We grew up in such a kinder, gentler world. I honestly feel sorry for the youth of today...and I worry that they're going to have "carpal neck" from always looking down! :) I absolutely loved having new crayons and a new coloring book! I loved paper dolls, playing jacks and being outside until dark.xoPat
I loved coloring and all the crayons. Children now days are missing out on so much today.I purchased a adult coloring book and I love doing that. The pictures are good enough to frame.Enjoy the rest of the week Ron.Mary
Are you kidding, I still love new crayons, markers, etc. the smell. The colors. Ahhh.when my daughter was in college her freshman year I sent her a package with new lg box of crayola crayons and a coloring book at exam time. She shared with some other girls on the floor for some de stressing with coloring. Ha!
Me too! I'll never forget in Kindergarten when I saw my first 64 count box! I was in love then and I love them now.
A new box was always so exciting!
Thanks for reading and commenting @ The Uptown Acorn! I love hearing from you. Cheers, y'all!
