Letterman top 10 – good
11. Going to Mexico to get a tan, and enjoy the sun yet many family members sit in the shade to develop their artistic talents painting bowls, fish and birds that will collect dust once they get home. Randy's commentary helps ease the pain.
( new since yesterday)
10.
Christmas holidays laying by the pool, reading novels, getting a tan and drinking a Miami Vice. Better than snow, sub-freezing temperatures and inversions.
9. Eat whenever, sleep whenever, do whatever.
8. Games after the “Broadway show”. Too bad there is not an Olympic event for Nertz. Someone from the Peck family would win a gold medal.
7. Liberation of the turtles (Courageous, Righteous, Crush, etc.) Most of the turtles could have more easily survived the birds and other predators than the mauling by the kids.
6. Miami Vice, Pina Colada, Strawberry Daiquiri – 250 calories per drink. Peck Family breaks record for virgin drinks consumed. Connor, Garrett, Tanner and David think sugar is one of the food groups. Big Fat Loser contest came at a good time. How about ½ your weight in ounces of Miami Vice’s
5. Fancy dining with the adults. Only a few bumps and bruises on the kids. Grandparents, Uncles, Aunts barely survived, realize why you are young when you have kids. A break from the buffet. Who’s idea was this anyway?
4. Enjoying everyone’s families! Being a great grandpa, great grandma, grandpa, grandma, aunt, uncle, cousin has never been more fun.
3. Kayaking to the island, snorkeling, bike ride through the forest, riding the bus to town, 3 shirts for $10 and playing tennis. Matt and Mindy experienced the strict Mexican rules regarding pregnant women. Mexico will allow most drugs to be sold to anyone, let boat captains take American men in fishing boats that barely float, let citizens drink “the water”, but wont let a pregnant women go kayaking.
2. New Year’s Eve party, eating a dozen grapes, listening to Spanish version of Staying Alive, fine Mexican entertainment fireworks, dancing, different buffet, looking back at a great 2007 with hopes for a happy and prosperous 2008
1. Lunch, breakfast, dinner, snack time visiting with family, talking politics, sports and other important topics, while enjoying 1-9 of the letterman list. Thinking how lucky we are to have parents and grandparents who have given us many opportunities over the years to have wonderful experiences as a family.

I love that everyone is on the blogspot right now. I have watched three different things pop up in the past ten minutes. Hello to everyone!

Great TOP 10 lists. How you were able to come up with these items from all of our rambling comments shows your true genius, Nicole. Way to go!

You need to make a number 11. Painting chilis on pottery.

Actually, I am not sure what happened. I changed the list a few times becuase I had some duplicates, and I also had some problems with the software. It did not like to number from 10-1. But the pottery paiting was on the list.

Great job on the ten best. I hope grandma and Papa can get online to read these. Shane, I think you missed your calling.

Poor Seth got blamed for Caleb's shenanigans. I need to know if Caleb swallowed the whole thing as in photo #1 or just the battery/light part. I just can't figure this out. How is he doing anyway?

Reeses Pieces said...

Thanks for the compliment Tomi~but all of the work was done by Shane. He's awesome at coming up with everything on this blog. I just put it on here. Nicole

The Palmer Fam said...

So Shane- do you get an extra point or 3 for still coming up with something about the trip even if you weren't there? And maybe a couple or 5 more for not getting half of list?
