Valentine's Day . . .


(Thanks for letting me say that. I just had to get it out and maybe now I can have a better day. And please, no "I'm so sorry" pity comments. Like I said, I just had to get that out.)

Lucky You!

I got this from a friend's blog and thot it sounded like fun! (and I really need to do something nice for others today to cheer myself up!)

Lucky you!

The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice. For you. 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 slightly sooner;)}

4. You have no clue what it’s going to be. It may be a story. It may be poetry or maybe even some creation I haven’t even invented yet. I may draw or paint something. I may bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that’s for sure! (But lets be honest here. This is me and I am not the best at wonderful ideas! I may bake or scrapbook or bow something, but I really haven’t thought that far ahead;)

5. I reserve the right to do something extremely strange (if I feel the desire).

The catch? Oh, the catch is that you must repost this on your blog and offer the same to the first 5 people who do the same on your blog. The first 5 people to do so and leave a comment telling me they did win a FAB-U-LOUS homemade gift by me!

* * *Oh, and be sure to post a picture of what you win when you get it!

It's a Whopper!

So last Sunday I was making some chicken soup and needed some carrots. Made my dear hubby go all the way to the back yard and dig me up a few. And this is the monster he brought me! (and by "monster" I mean the orange thing, the carrot! NOT me! Even though I do look pretty scary - just ignore me and focus on the giant orange thing!!)

So, although my garden this past year may have been a huge flop overall,
I DO know how to grow some good carrots!!

Tabitha's Birthday Pictures

Finally got the kinks worked out with my computer/camera - so here are just a few pics from Tabitha's birthday party at home.

We also went out to dinner with Rick's family a couple nites before to celebrate. His sister Melissa, 2 of his 3 brothers, Ross and Ryan, and Ryan's girlfriend Stephenie, were all here visiting. We all went out to Tucanos - a delicious all-you-can-eat (make-yourself-sick) - Brazilian restaurant. A couple of Rick's cousins joined us and later some more relatives stopped by, so it was a fun night. And Tabitha was really spoiled by all of them!

Cupcake in one hand, giant waffle cone in the other =
1 Happy little girl!

I took the easy route and made cupcakes instead of a cake
And then the kids got to do their own decorating.
And they all loved it!

This is Tabitha in her new dress up outfit from Rick's family.
She loves it!! She INSISTED on wearing it as a nightgown the first 3 nites and with her new crown on she calls herself "Fumbelina" - it's so cute! Not sure where she got the Thumbelina idea, since it is not a Thumbelina dress or crown, but that is who she is when she wears them together! What a cute little pose! She keeps talking lately about "when I get to go to dance class." What a little princess she is! Now, as a mother, I know you are not supposed to have favorties, but is it ok to have favorites at their different ages/stages?! She is most definitely the cutest, funniest, silliest little 2/3 year old that I have had!

Technical Difficulties

So I was already tonite to come and upload pictures taken from Tabitha's 3rd birthday today, and blog all about it, but my computer/camera is having some kind of PMS or something. It's connected, but just not finding it. I've spent about an hour trying different things and nothing is working!! So the pictures and birthday news will have to wait!

But until then, here is just a sweet picture of my adorable little girl!! It's about a year old, but I just love it! And I can't look thru anymore - looking at "old" pictures of her just makes me realize how big my baby is! And in my wonderfully emotional pregnant state if I don't stop now, the waterworks will be in full force! She has grown SO Much in the last year alone!

Tabitha Rose - you are the sweetest little thing EVER!!
We love you SO MUCH!!!
