It’s always so much fun, and sometimes emotional, to go back and choose photos for Debbie’s, from Debbie’s Digest, Think Back Thursday. This week’s theme was the colour purple and it was a week bit of a challenge to come up with a variety of photos even though purple is one of my two favourite colours. I think I did a decent job in the end and I encourage you to hop on over if you have some photos featuring the colour purple that you would like to share!

We really didn’t get any snow that year so this was the only opportunity the children had to make a snowman and it was melted by the next day!

I think she liked that shirt! Rocking out on the drums on Rockband! This was our favourite family activity for a long time.

Screen Shot 2013-07-10 at 8.54.24 PM I think we were using Story of the World. For more purple pictures and to see what they were up to check out this link. Oh, the memories. Actually, there’s a whole lot more to the story, so I’m sharing another picture as I see it wasn’t mentioned in the post.

Thank goodness that mammoth came along! They had a pretty good set up, though, didn’t they? This is back in the day when we were able to have themes to our days (AKA before Ruadhan…….maybe one day soon…..he is nearing the age Morgaine is in this picture).
