I have lots to catch up on this week. I subbed at the school a couple of days, and it totally throws me behind! It is always interesting to see your kids in their school environment. Cade must have waved to me 100 times as I was in the front of their class. Like he had to claim me every few minutes, so I (or anyone else) wouldn't forget that I belonged to him. So sweet. But I also had to break up a fight between him and a couple of boys. I have been wondering why one of the boys' moms has been cold to me lately. Evidently, there have been some problems. Great! He's a wild one, I'm telling you. I'm going to have to keep my eye on him - always!

I was so excited to get a special surprise in the mailbox this week! I won a bow over at Keisha's a couple of weeks ago. Isn't it just the cutest things. It looks like a bat.

But, then I dug deeper and found this:
Whoo Hoo! Now you're singing my song! Thank you Keisha for these beautiful bows. They are just perfect, and I can't wait to have a little girl head to put them on!

I also received an award this week from Kim. She was so sweet to send this my way. She and her peanuts make me smile big!

I have chosen these 5 people to pass this award to. They definitely make me smile :)

1. Margie at Mississippizen. Margie just got home with her second China treasure. I don't think the past month has been a walk in the park, but she is always so sweet and loving.
2. Jill at Mission to Macie. Jill is crazy and I love that I have gotten to know her over the past few months. Anybody that has three boys, I immediately have a connection with.
3. Gwen at Oatsvall Team. Gwen is hysterical. She always has something crazy going on over there. I love to read about it. She inspires me to have a closer relationship with the Lord.
4. Adele at Making Memories with Mallory and Meridith. Adele is such a sweet friend. I am thankful we live close enough that we will be able to get to know each other better.
5. Lynn at Somewhere in the Sun. Although she has decided to close her blog, which does not make me smile. I wanted to send her off with this award to thank her for letting me follow along on their journey to Miss Olivia. Lynn is also a fellow baseball mom, and I love that. I will miss you, Lynn.

OK, now that I'm caught up, on with the show!! We have great weather here this weekend, so I'm hoping to enjoy that. My in-laws are in town, and I think I'll let the boys carve their pumpkins while there is back-up here! Bryce and I are going to a concert by the USAF concert band. I think it's going to be really great, and I am really looking forward to it. And, of course, there is game three of the World Series!! It's one-one right now, so we're all holding our breath!

Have a great weekend!!

Oh thank you so much Jennifer for this award. You are so sweet. You certainly deserve this award, that's for sure! I will post this award on my blog this weekend. Thank you again.
Love your bows. I can hardly wait to see the LSU bow in your daughter's hair. I bet she will look great in purple and gold. Keisha does such a great job on her bows. Did you know she named her biggest bow after Mallory. It's called the Mallory Bow. LOL.
Have a great weekend. Love ya.

You better enjoy Cade's waves now because soon he will be all grown up and having you drop him off on the corner so that he will be cool!

Somewhere In The Sun said...

Jennifer, I'm so touched! Really and truly! I will miss blogging but I know it's the right decision for my family.
You certainly deserve this award!

So glad the subbing went well. Love the bows! EK has a bow in all the time!Good job on the award. Happy weekend!


Great bows!! How many does that make now? Have you counted? Btw, I am glad to see a McCain/Palin logo on a blog. I have seen so many Obabma Mommas with comments to go along that I just don't want to check blogs so much anymore. I am so over this election now!! Btw, did I tell you that I do a fantastic Palin impersonation complete with the outfit, the hair, the glasses and the accent. I'm no Tina Fey (sp?) but it is still funny if I do say so myself :-)
Have a great week and Happy Halloween!!
