Any guesses to what that might be?
That, my friends, is the party give away bowl for game night here Saturday with my family. Oh yes, you are invited of course. The more the merrier. "Must love kids" is a good rule for this party...remember that if you head over.
Win a round, win a game, pick your prize. Except that fluffy pink feathered bubble pen in the middle. That belongs to Tiny Tot 2 (Seth). Tiny Tot 4 (Ben) will have the shock of his life when he finds the snack table decorated with a figurine of R2D2 to go with his Star Wars collection. He told me they didn't make them. Let Aunt Dee find a way to prove that wrong. I am not going to say a word but just let him spot it and see if he says anything.
See why I was Aunt of the Year for 2007? Hey, I need to make a blog badge for that. Then I can be "Aunt of the Year 2008" or how about "Blogging Aunt of the Year!"
I wanted my latest email to be Aunt Dee but it was taken. I had to settle for Rollie Bear.
Can you spot the fake yucky teeth in the bowl? Maybe I should give a prize for that.
Do you, fellow bloggers, ever get to where you feel like you have this blog thing under control and the juices are flowing and then bam, you can't write, you can't think and if you do you don't have the time to post it?
On New Year's Eve my husband and I (yes Toonces) sat down and went through our year via my blog. That was really cool. I recommend to anyone to start one even if you keep it private because you can roll through all your favorite photos and stories. And crazy things you'd forgotten about. And the sad things. It was just a very nice trip down memory lane for the two of us in the quiet of our home. I could never summarize like that myself. As Toonces said "The blog is worth having if only just for that."
This blog is my journal. A diary and a photo album. It helps me monitor the kids, the Thugs, and my kitties as the grow up. And, as if any other benefit was needed, I have gotten to meet some of the coolest, craziest, funniest, nicest people in the world. Not just Virginia, not just the United States, but in the world.
Thank you so very much to Jenn ( a great friend) for this:
And a new friend with excellent art work...Christa.
My friend Pearl who always talks over my head.
I have many more that are excellent but I am out of time for today. I hope you'll visit these guys if you aren't already familiar with them.
We were trying to see if Darius would even let us hold him anymore...
Enjoy the weekend. I am actually going to the doctor tomorrow for my back and check things out just in case. I can't sit long since the accident without lower back pain on my spine.
After that it is party time...the kids will begin judging. You still have to the 31st. We, Toonces and I, are really enjoying all the entries and I wish I could send something to everyone who entered from me and the kids and T and our pets. Heck, we may just send ya a Valentine anyway....how about sending me addresses? I had the best time today picking out Valentines for the winner and runners up. I love the winner's card...it makes me smile.
PS- I must say before I refrain from posting until Sunday that I am so bummed that Heath Ledger was found dead. I really really really hate that. The kids was so cute and so talented and right off from the "Knight's Tale" I thought, "This kid has it." What a tragedy.
