I'm a Winner

I have been thinking a lately that it's about time I won another giveaway, and tonight I got an email saying that I had won a $30 gift certificate to Queenbabybean. Way cool, I love winning things. Now the problem is what should I get? I have been thinking about getting the Boon frog pod for the kids bath to coral their bath toys. But I have also been thinking about getting a couple more of the Bum Genius pocket diapers. I have 4 of the BG diapers already and love their convenience (just like a disposable once you put the stuffer in). I really have enough diapering supplies, especially since Alex has potty trained, but these are more fun and they come in pretty colors. What would you get?

We played a game as a family tonight!

Joe and I enjoy playing board games and I have personally looked forward to sharing that fun with our kids. Tonight we all played Hungry Hungry Hippo together after dinner. Abbie was even able to play along by picking up marbles and putting them in the center for the hippos to eat and hitting the lever on the hippo a couple of times. I am really looking forward to playing more games with them as they grow.

Carolina Crossroads Part One

Thank you all for the comments. I have decided to go with the mottled cream for the background. I have now completed the first step. I am really liking how these colors are looking together. On the right hand side of the photo is a stack of little 1 1/2" x 3 1/2" three patches from ends of strips that weren't big enough for a rail fence. I haven't decided if I am going to pick them apart to use in the nine patch blocks or just use them for another project.

Update on the kids

Lately Alex has really been into asking to play games, but unfortunately the ones we have are a bit too old for him. When I was at good will on Saturday I found the Hungry Hungry Hippo for $2. I remember really liking this from when I was a kid so I picked it up. I left it out on the entryway table and when Alex found it he was so excited and wanted to play it right away. He has really been enjoying it, but we do have to be careful to keep track of the marbles because they are just the right size for Abbie to choke on.

Abbie has finally decided to walk more than she crawls. For the longest time the most walking she would do was a couple steps and then she would throw a tantrum if you tried to get her to walk anymore. On Friday we went over to my friend Heather's house and her son (who is 26 hours older than Abbie) is walking and I think that made her finally decide that walking was pretty cool.
