My first giveaway! The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice. For YOU! I saw this on a blog and I thought, "humm, in my attempt at being a better person, why not do a little service for friends and loved ones." This is going to be fun and I can't wait to start some new projects. It must be something to do with spring because once the sun comes out I all of the sudden get this huge urge to take on tons of new projects. This offer does have some restrictions and limitations: 1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I make! 2. What I create will be just for you. 3. It'll be done this year. Hopefully sooner than later. 4. You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be sewn, painted, written, scrapbooky, or be something totally random that I come up with on a whim. I may even bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure! 5. I reserve the right to do something extremely strange. The catch? Oh, the catch is that you must re-post this on your blog and offer the same to the first 5 people who do the same on your blog. Let's spread some love! So, the first 5 people to do so and leave a comment telling me they are doing it too win a FAB-U-LOUS homemade gift by me! (I know...that could either be cool or scary) Who knows! :)Be sure to post pictures of what you won when you recieve it! :) I thought this sounded like a pretty neat idea!
Today I realized that its much better to focus on the things I can do and have done rather than the opposite. For example today I made mac'n'cheese start to finish while nursing Cannon! It might not be as grand as writing a novel, but for me, it was something grand at the moment! As for Gabe---he has literally beat me at Chinese Checkers in at least the last twenty games that we've played! (why do I even bother anymore?) And Hunter made 3 baskets (standard height) today at ball practice! I was so proud of him! He has also moved on to his own room in the basement now. Jenna is now the proud rider of a two wheeler. She has been practicing the last little bit and is now getting it. And for Ember she can reach the pedals on her new tricycle and is really cruising! She also sings "You Are My Sunshine" adorably!! Cannon has recently discovered the joy of finding his feet and realizes that they are connected to him so he can play with them anytime he wants now---so cute!!! He also is working on re-learning the amazing accomplishment of sleeping through the night!!! These may not all be great achievements for everyone, but its sure fun to see how we all grow and progress and focus on the things we can do!
We love being together!!! Yes, we do have our individual likes and interests, but our favorites are each other and our kids.
Gabe is such a great daddy and husband! He is such a strength, support and help to me. He loves his work at DishOne! I'm so proud of him and thankful for all he does. He truly loves me, what more could I ask for???
I love being a mom! Truly 4 kids is an adjustment, but so fun! I stay busy getting kids to and from school, changing diapers, housekeeping, Relief Society service, and whatever else each day brings. I am happy and life is good!
Hunter is 8 now and is growing up way too fast! He loves basketball, fishing, exploring, inventing and hanging out with his dad and his friends. He loves school and is having a great year!
Jenna is 6 and loves first grade! She is a good reader, a good helper and most important, a good friend!
Ember is 3 1/2 and loves life! She is so much fun and I LOVE to be with her! She is such a great big sister to Cannon
Cannon is 1 and oh, how I love this stage! He loves to play outside and eat and be with his mom! He is such a good baby and is finally sleeping through the night!
