Merry Christmas!


I am a day late, but Merry Christmas to you! I hope you all had and are having a wonderful holiday season. We had a nice day yesterday; we had to wake all three girls up in the morning. They do so much better than my husband and I did as children--we were both the type waking up our parents at 1 am, 2 am, and so on until they finally stumbled out of bed sometime close to a reasonable hour. They probably should have just given us clocks and told us not to walk out of the room until X time :) Happily, Brayden is obedient to that rule and though he reports waking at 6:20, he did not get out of bed until 7:00 AM. We then tortured him to wait until we woke the girls at 7:45. He was very patient.

I will be taking the week off from blogging this week and next week to have fun with my family. I plan to do some work here and there on the blog index (it needs a lot of updating!). I also have a whole new blog look ready to go--I will put that all up at the new year so be sure to come check it out! I am very excited. It is taking all of my will power to wait...why am I waiting you ask?  (My husband asked the same...) I have no real answer. Just that I decided it would be fun to unveil it at the new year so that is my plan.

Entry Rules
  • You must leave a comment in order to have an entry.
  • You must leave a separate comment for each entry. This is not so I can get lots of comments--it is because it makes it a million times easier to choose a winner. It takes less time, and less time is good. Plus, it makes sure I don't miss an entry.
  • You don't have to do all seven entries...for example, if you just want to follow this blog, you can just do entry one.
  • One entry per comment.
  • Up to seven entries per person.
  • You must fulfill the rules of each entry for each entry to count. If I see the entry is not valid (did not meet entry requirements), I will disqualify your entry. Trust me, I check.
  • Entries will be accepted until I choose the winner sometime early January--January 4-7ish.
  • The winner will be randomly selected at
  • The winner will be announced early January 2013.
  • If you would like, you can add your email address to your entry. If you are the winner, I will email you to let you know. You do not need to add your email address in order to win. I understand not everyone wants to share their email addresses with the world. I will announce the winner on the blog, so you can check the blog Saturday to find out if you won.
  • Once the winner is announced, you will have one week to contact me or another winner will be chosen. Be sure to check back. The only thing worse than not winning is to win but not realize it in time!
  • US mailing addresses only
