Give Away

Okay, I have enjoyed (and even won some) give aways off other blogs. Most of the give aways have been from other scrapbookers that are published in the magazines or gals who work for the scrapbook mags. I haven't done anything fun today but I have had lots of time to think. I was thinking how happy I am & how lucky I am to live in this great land. I am happy to enjoy the freedom that allows me to choose how I live my life. One other happy thing today is air conditioning. So happy to have it in my car & in the house. So my question to you is ,What is making you happy today? Post your response to the blog & on Friday afternoon I will have my boys draw a winner. What is the prize you ask? The prize will be some of my favorite scrapbook supplies. We all know new scrapbook supplies make me happy. If you post a comment & are not a scrapbooker, I will send you a little gift card to one of my favorite stores that makes me happy! Just so you know, reading your posts & comments on my blog makes me happy!

Ready, set... POST

P.S. for those of you who don't know how to post a comment (umm MOM - lol), you can hit the anonymous key. Just be sure to sign your name at the end of your post :)

Seriously Raimi...you are too great. The things that are making me happy right now...
* kids sleeping
* baby got a tubby tonight
* yummy peach cobbler that I made compliments of my neighbors peach tree.
* the fact that I'm going to go walking with my girlfriends in 15 minutes to try and work some of that cobbler off. That alone has got to win me something!
Thanks for helping me see the good in this crazy day.

Oh I never win anything! So here are the things I am happy about -

* Ben found his Thursday folder - after losing sleep over it for 5 days.
* Susie chattering non stop at bedtime.
* Sambo loving his bath.

Love,

I have been enjoying a new blog called Stampin' With Markie's Mom. She is amazing. I have learned a lot from her posts. I recently found out she has cancer. I have not been well for a long time and am in a lot of pain myself. Today I was able to get up and make a card (before work!) using some of her tecniques. I started my day incredibly HAPPY! thanks to Faith Hofrichter(Markie's Mom). Hugs to you Raimi-my dear friend.
Love, Free

Ok, first I have to say "thank you" for making me stop and think. Since starting my new job, I have been a big grouch and probably getting on my husband's every, last nerve. What I enjoy and miss most is my boys laughter and their BIG beautiful smiles. I love being a mom and appreciate that I have been trusted with 3 such amazing gifts! :)

I always enjoy reading about your family! Smile :)
Reasons that make me happy are:
My Husband- how supportive he is to any dream or task I want to "attack".
My family- how my baby and 3 year old can get into a giggle fest with each other!
Friends- I keep meeting incredible people that teach me so much! How Kaylene keeps me motivated @ 6 am to exercise.
My dreams- hope to get an ASL program at the library going with parents and toddlers/preschoolers. And to do something serious with art.

I love contests but I don't think spouses are allowed to compete. What makes me happy is:
~Watching our kids play sports
~Baby Brody sleeping from 9pm to 7am. Awesome
~When my wife is happy I am happy
~Getting excellent marks back on Tanner's Star test results
~Garrett starting preschool next week
~ Playing sports myself. Although it is becoming much harder.

Fun contest Honey.

I know I'm probably too late for the 'contest' but I couldn't pass up this chance to share what makes me happy:
-John saying "I wuv you mom" for no apparent reason.
-Bedtime talks with Laurel -- her hopes, dreams and grand plans
-Adam finally getting to eat some dairy products, his toothy smile and yelling 'MaMa' when he sees me
-A husband that is kind and a hard worker
-living in a city where there is a park on every corner and every square inch of earth is landscaped, beautifully maintained and if natural -- there is a trail in it so you can enjoy it! Thanks for helping me remember all the things I'm grateful for Raimi!
