    1. Thank you Tara. I hope to see your's when it's done! Have a great 2015!

  3. I love your list and have actually have done all of them except #71 with my older children. Now I can make a list to do with my little boy. Btw...I use to live in Texas! Happy 2015!

    1. Once a Texan, always a Texan! =) I used to make Perler crafts with my mom all the time! I honestly can't wait to do it again with my little one. Thanks for stopping by! =)

  4. What a fun idea! My kids would love to dream with me for the upcoming year. Thanks for all the ideas.

    1. Thanks Hope! Even making the list is a fun activity for the kids! My 4 year old helped think up a lot of these! Have fun with it!

  5. This is a big list. Looks like your family will be having lots of fun in 2015. We are going to see Disney on Ice in March in Montreal. The kids are so excited and so am I.

    1. How exciting!! I still have to look for tickets, but if I can't find disney on ice, I guess I will settle for Sesame Street on Ice lol. Have fun watching the show! Hope you blog about it. =)

  6. Oh, I love this idea! I need to make my own with my family.

  7. These all seem like such fun activities. Making memories and enjoying these experiences as a family make a huge difference to kids. I will love to see pics of the kids catching butterflies.

    1. Thank you! I am thinking about documenting some of these activities and posting them online throughout the year. =) Thanks for stopping by Kimberly.

  8. I love this idea! My kids always groan at resolution time, maybe this would cheer them up. :) I found your blog at the Link Party on a Bowl Full of Lemons.

    1. Hi Elizabeth! This is definitely more fun than regular resolutions! Especially when everyone includes their own ideas! I'm glad you stopped by!

  9. These are all great ideas! Thanks for the list!

    1. Thank you Heather! Glad you liked them.

  10. What a great list! All of those ideas sound fun to me. Thanks for sharing at On Display Thursday!
