Year One Superlatives

5:00:00 AM

Tomorrow is my Bloggiversary! And in honor of that, I wanted to start a new tradition. I am a big fan of John and Sherry over at Young HouseLove. I didn’t find them until after I started blogging, but they are a huge inspiration to me. I especially love the voice of their blog. I can so picture them chatting away with me in real life when I read their posts. I even got to meet them when their book tour took them into North Carolina.

But I digress. One of the fun things they do every month is make a list of superlatives as a way to sum up the monthly happenings in their blog. And although I am not so ambitious to do a monthly list of superlatives, I thought I’d wrap up my year by giving you my list of blog superlatives:

Cutest First Aid Delivery: (tie) Boo-Boo Bird and Fix-it Fox

Boo-Boo Bird Ice Pack

Fix-It Fox Ice Pack

I just couldn't decide between these two cuties! But let me tell you, the kids love these little animals, even when they don't have boo-boos!
