I say winning because we randomly went to Wal-Mart that night and they just so happened to be having a costume contest, which we were persuaded into entering. We won 1st place!! I think we were given a gift card and some other goodies.
We had such a fun time and Kaleb really played the part of the quacking duck.
This post was inspired by prompt #5 at Mama's Losin It.

We have added a poll to help us choose Kaden's costume this year.
Kaleb had his costume picked out about a month ago, he wants to be on the Cardinals baseball team. It's a shame they didn't make it to the world series. Go Red Birds!!

I have searched everywhere with no luck--I am going to have to break down and buy a new phone. On the bright side I will get the phone that I really want. Hey, if you have to spend that much money on something might as well get the one you want, right!?!

I really wish I could have had the chance to interview my grandmother before she passed away--she was the woman who raised me. I remember every year at school for Mother's Day we would celebrate by making cards and homemade bouquets. I always made them for my Grandma who proudly displayed them all over her home. Although we moved around A LOT all over Las Vegas during my childhood, my Grandmother's was the one constant place we had to go to.
I have become friends with my birth mother and have developed a strong friendship with her and now I am looking forward to building a strong relationship with my mother-in-law. So I decided to interview her on motherhood.
Can't say I have a favorite age, every stage of Levi's life was special and I wouldn't have missed any of it.
I do miss having him in the house. It was hard when he went to college, but I love it when I have my grandkids come visit and fill the void.
The most difficult time was when he got hurt in any way. I would have traded places with him in a heartbeat.
The most rewarding part was just having Levi, he continues to bring so much joy to our lives along with his new family."
She is a fabulous lady and my father-in-law is pretty awesome too!

I was there for the birth of my niece three years ago and I want to be there again for my nephew's birth. I was honored that my sister wanted me in the delivery room with her. I raced to KC to be with her knowing that a crazy snow storm was brewing. Not only was it a crazy snow storm, it was one of the worst. I stayed a day later than planned to wait it out but ended up sitting on I-70 for 7 hours anyway. What normally would have been a 3 hour trip ended being 12 hours!! My phone battery had died. It was cold and dark and Levi was driving up and down the Hwy looking for me and we had only been dating 6 months. Who does that? My amazing boyfriend now husband! I was not about to let this one get away!
This is the first picture of my niece--November 30, 2006.
This is a video I found on Kelly's Korner and had to share it.
Edited to Add: False alarm. Is it selfish to say I'm glad because now I have a better chance of being there.?.

Happy Friday to me!
I won my first giveaway--on the last day of this awesome 30 day giveaway at Lauren Nicole Gifts.
I am so excited to have won this typewriter charm from her site--I feel a little guilty having just received the wax seal necklace as a gift from my mother-in-law for my birthday. I will have to think of who would love to have this and give it as a gift to someone else. Is that OK?
