I love a contest.

I do love contests. I like playing games and having fun. I am honest enough to admit that I like winning, but I also enjoy playing too. So here is a contest definately worth entering at the In A Shoe website
This contest is quite a challenge for me on several fronts. I had to learn a couple of new computer skills. One was learning how to insert a link in my post. The information was graciously provided on Karen's website. Then if you link to the contest you can actually enter for a second contest for another worthwhile prize. I hope my friend Valerie(BBG) is proud of me.

The contest has a prize from Vision Forum for $700.00 worth of products. That is for the family that guesses the number of items in the new Vision Forum catalog that is coming out. There will also be a drawing for 2 $50.00 gift certifcates from VF as well. Nice prizes and lots of fun. If you click on the In A Shoe link and then follow the directions you too can enter.

Fun, fun, fun for everyone.

Good News.

We had to postpone our carwash until this last Saturday. We were blessed with great weather and a wonderful crew. We raised $410.00 all together. Some came from people at church that donated even though they could not come to the car wash. Some was also earned at the carwash. The money all went to Dave and BeckyLynn Black for the Ethiopian churches they minister to. Our family has been blessed to be involved with their ministry in a hands-on way. This was great for us and the children.

Growing by leaps and bounds.

It is hard to believe that our little munchkin is big enough for the "jumpy duck" already. It seems that she was born only yesterday. She is such a sweetie. We are going to have to change her nickname from Our Latest Model to Bubbles. She likes to blow lots of spit bubbles. We sure wouldn't trade her for the world.

Look who's forty!

Yes, it is true. It happened on 9/11 this year! The best looking guy turned forty. His loving wife got some of his buddies together to have a surprise BBQ. It turned out so great. The birthday boy was clueless enough to even attend in his orange "safety" shirt from work. They all had a good time involving fire (on the grill), guns and fellowship. The next day the adult Heaths (with our Latest Model tagging along) departed for a beach trip. The kids all did extremely well by keeping all the secrets from Daddy's present (a new gun) to the surprise party. Pretty impressive really!

The Birthday Princesses!

I found the picture! The pretty Birthday Princesses! Yay! I am so blessed with these girls. I am thankful for their younger sisters too.

The Cake

Ah-ha! I found the cake picture. The Barbie part of it was even edible. The children's aunt found incredible pleasure in cutting the cake.


Okay, If I had previewed it then I would have known that I didn't have the right picture in the previous post. Oh well.

This is the picture of one of the birthday girls. The picture with the birthday post is of our Monster child. She is doing her topless hula impression in front of all of our Costco. stuff that had yet to be put away. Okay, I am off to try to find the cake and the picture of both girls.

The Princess Diaries

Well, I think I got the picture of the Birthday Girls. Tabitha and Tahlia turned 5 and 3, respectively, on Labor Day weekend. We went shopping. The girls were each allowed to pick an outfit, a doll and a nail polish. The older princess surprisingly picked a pants outfit (albeit with plenty of pink), a Princess Barbie and white nail polish. The younger one picked a pretty pink dress, a Snow White fabric doll and pink nail polish. They picked Burger King to eat at because it has a playground. To each her own, I guess.

Sunday we celebrated with some cake and ice cream and a special dinner for their aunt as well. I will see if I can locate the picture of the cake. It was sooooo pink.
