  6. Happy memory is watching the look on our grandson’s face when we surprised him with a day to the Museum of Science.

  7. My favorite memory was the first time we heard our daughter give a REAL hearty laugh. She was about 3 months old and my husband would tickle-bite her in the neck. Her “hehe” turned into “HAHA” in almost a deep man-voice – hilarious!

  8. 3 voices screaming “Grandpa” at the top of theire lungs, just before I am buried under an avalanche of hugs and kisses.

  9. My favorite Happy Memory is when we go camping in our backyard each year with our sons. We set up tents, sleeping bags, etc and spend the night outside. We have so much fun with no electronics and just cards and board games.
    Thanks so much.

Someone told me later they were called “Doughnut Sundaes”. I felt so special that he would go out of his way to think of me and get me that special doughnut.

  35. i have five most happy memories..the day each of my kids were born there is nothing like the feeling of holding that new little one in your arms and touching those tiny fingers and toes and wanting nothing more in the world than to protect them and keep them safe.those five memories i will cherish forever :)

  40. When my son was born, I was the person that washed his hair in the nursery (my wife was still recovering from the c-section). He was so little and beautiful, I almost cried. He’s 14 now but I will always remember that little bundle of joy in my hands.

  45. Among my favorite happy memories is the day my husband and I got married. We started off that morning arguing about a bunch of last-minute stuff that needed to get done and wound up being late for our own ceremony. But once we got started, we were both floating so high on a cloud that we couldn’t even remember why we’d been upset :)

  46. My father always had a quite sense of humor, but a good sense of humor nonetheless. I remember one time when I was very young, I had been combing my hair before coming to the dinner table and looking in the mirror, I wondered why people parted their hair instead of just letting it go any which way. (I was young!) When I asked my father why people parted their hair, he readily said with a straight face: “Every block needs an alley.” Ah, the quiet ones are the ones you have to look out for!

  49. A favorite memory of mine is when I took a vacation with my family to Disney~! We live in the dreary cold state of Maine and while everyone back home was freezing My son was dancing with Mini Mouse in sunny Florida. I smile every time I look at that picture.

My favorite happy memory was watching my oldest son graduate from college; I always dreamed my children would go to college since I did not and now two have graduated and another will this year….I have quite a few years more before my youngest will graduate high school, let alone college..but the memories of watching them accept their diplomas keeps me smiling.

  59. A favorite happy memory. Geesh, so many to choose from! A favorite and recent happy memory is waking to the sunshine smile of my newborn each and every morning as my girls play quietly in the mornings.

I was nervous and really wanted to shine for my mom and dad. My Dad stopped off at the department store on his way home from work and bought me the most beautiful, fanciest dress I had ever laid eyes on.

  107. Today I went over to my parents house, and fed ducks off the deck with my father. It was a very sweet happy memory.

  108. Hands down the two best memories are the birth of my two children. Especially when, in labor with my first child, I went to the hospital with contractions. The nurse told me I was just having some light ones and that it was nothing to worry about, basically that I was overreacting. Well I refused to leave the hospital because I knew I was in pain and had to be in labor. So they gave me a little something to relax and within 45 minutes, my daughter was born. It was a sweet, sweet moment to look that nurse in the eye and say “I told you I wasn’t just being a wuss!” :)

  111. A favorite happy moment was 2 years ago, I found out I won an all expenses trip to Japan for a week. I was 1 of 10,000 entries and I had entered on the very last day 1 minute before it ended. I ended up taking my Mom for her 70th birthday, it was the first time she had ever been out of the country (USA) and we had a wonderful time.

  112. There are so many, most involve family members who I love dearly. Today I was shopping with my granddaughter, and we laughed and giggled while trying on sun glasses and jeans. All my days with her are special.

  113. My favorite happy memory right now is of one year ago this week – I learned that I was pregnant with our miracle baby son… a baby who was never supposed to be (according to the doctors) and who we weren’t trying for, hadn’t planned for…. and have been all too happy to welcome into our lives!

    Many thanks!

  114. My favorite happy memory was the first time I saw our (three) kids – and we’ve been adding to those memorites ever since! :)

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  122. The happiest memory I have is the day my daughter was born. The doctor had told me from my first appointment that my husband’s family history made it very clear that I wasn’t going to be having a girl. We never had a sonogram, so we basically just believed we’d be having another boy. I was SO thrilled to have them tell me I’d given birthday to a girl!

  123. One of my favorite happy memories would have to be our family vacation to Hawaii when I young…I will never forget it! Thanks!

  124. One of favorite memories with my Dad is picking dewberries by a creek near our home. We’d take them home and Mom would make a pie.

  125. My Dad used to sit by the window and watch for us to pull up from our trip back home. When we got in, he’d want up to go down in his rec room to show us the latest project he was working on. After that we’d sit and drink a pot of coffee together.

  126. My favorite memory of my Dad is when he came home from the Navy and suprised the whole family at Thanksgiving. He was gone for over
    11 months on a ship overseas. He was not to come home for another
    6 months. It was the Best Thanksgiving ever.

  127. Some of my favorite times are at my parents summer house on the lake when the boys play for hours at the beach and we have cook outs and picnics and go for ice cream!!

  130. One great memory I have is of my kids planning and hosting a Halloween party for all their friends, with spooky foods and decorations, music, etc. It was great.

  131. I’m trying to focus on the small and the day to day. I love when my son wakes up and calls for me and when I walk in he says, “Hi” with more enthusiasm than any adult I’ll talk to all day.

  132. My dad taking me fishing on this beautiful creek. He baited every hook and untangled every line I’d hang in the trees and never complained once! What a guy!
    Thanks!

  133. I remember the first time my dad took the training wheels off and I rode and rode and rode my bicycle by myself.

  134. I remember dad spending time with us while we were studying. I didn’t really like it at the time, but it was important to him and it paid off!

  135. Just recently, we celebrated my grandmother’s 100th birthday. We took all our children and traveled to see her just for that event. It was a great experience for my children to see some of my family, as everyone else is dead.

  136. A favorite happy memory I have is swimming with my grandfather at the campground. It is one of the few memories I have of him at all, so it is extra special.

  138. I have happy memories of fishing with my dad. It was a quiet, sharing of time.

    Thank you for a great giveaway and thanks to Lay’s, love the chips!

  139. We took our three year old to Disney recently; believe it or not, I have tons of happy memories about that, despite, the long car drive, the oppressive heat, the lines…you get the picture. We still had fun.

  140. This memory goes back nearly a quarter of a century, but it still brings a smile to my face. My mom and I drove out to Los Angeles in 1987 and we visited a lot of national parks going there and back. One of the places I just had to visit was Death Valley. The nice park ranger told me exactly how to get to the “Star Wars” canyon, where they filmed some scenes with the Jawas and R2-D2 for the original film. I took a ton of photos and was happy just to be there. My happiness was magnified when I got home and realized I had a shot set up from a little crevice in the canyon wall that almost exactly matched a shot from the film! I really was on Tatooine!

  141. I miss the days when I was a child and I use to play at the park while my mom and uncle played frisbee. That’s how we spent every sunday
