First folder, tenth pic.
Next, I received the Kreativ Blogger award
from Lisa over at Chapman Crazyhouse.
She's a super cool mummy with 5 kids of her own!
5-kid mummy, umm, I mean mommy's rock!
The really cool thing is, her kids are almost
the exact ages mine are!
And one more cool thing-she lives in
Austraila! (Hence 'mummy')
I love the Australian words!!
Anyway, she nominated me for this award for
my kreativ use of cheerios and foreheads!
Lastly, (yes, I promise there is an end coming soon!)
Kimber gave me this Scrap Honesty thing.
Thanks, girl! And Happy Birthday!!
Basically I have to share 10 honest things about me.
1. I sing and play the piano, but I can't do both
at the same time! Wish I could!
2. I bit my fingernails everyday of my life,
with many failed attempts to quit. After Paul
and I started dating he said,
'Please, baby, don't bite them anymore.'
And just like that, I didn't. Wierd.
3. I LOVE rock-n-roll. All of it. But not
the new stuff. I find very little redeeming
qualities in today's music. I'm totally stuck in
4. I'm a speed demon. My dad was a racecar
driver on the weekends when I was growing
up, and he actually tried to get me to race
his car when I was 16. I wish I had!
Of course, I don't drive that way when my kids
are in the car, but when I'm alone, I crank up
the rock-in-roll (see #4) and put the
hammer down. (usually this happens
when I'm in Paul's truck. The minivan's hammer
just doesn't quite cut it!) This is also
a major stress reliever for me.
5. I hate to shave, and truly, I don't do it that
often. I know-yuck. But even Paul's used to it by now,
and I have gotten better in the last few years.
6. I have never broken a bone.
7. I would love to have a few more biological
children and then adopt a few. As it stands, we
have agreed on one more biological and the adoption
thing may be out of reach cause the more bio kids
you have, the less they want to let you adopt one.
8. I wanted to be on Broadway. It's what I originally went
to school for, but God had different plans! I'm so glad He did!!
9. I am TERRIFIED of spiders. Seriously.
10. I'm really laid back. I tend to take everything
in stride and not stress much at all. I'm also a total
goofball, but not until I know you really well.
OMGosh! My fingers may cramp from all this typing!
So, here's the bottom line. If I nominate you, you get
to do all the
tedious, hand cramping typing
really fun interesting stuff I just did! :)
Remember, if you already did one of these, just
put a link to it! If you won an award, copy and paste
it onto your blog. In no particular order:
1. Amanda at proud mommy of 4.
2. Kelli at Random Thoughts of a Supermom.
3. Konnie at The Dooley's.
4. Christie Rose at
5. Tracy at Simply Smith.
6. Erica at Scottsville.
7. Mimi at He & Me +3.
8. Kimber at A Day in the Life of a Girl Named Kimber.
9. Lisa at Chapman Crazyhouse.
10. Leigh at the crazy world of the SHELTONS.
I hope everyone will join in and play along! Thanks!
And I just wanted to point out that I am
getting close to 100 posts!! Yay!!
That means another giveaway-this time
I will be giving away something yummy
from somewhere I mentioned in this post!

Yay!! Cake is good!
After she made several attempts to dump her
plate on the floor, I just dumped it onto her tray.
Ain't she sweet? ;)
Every time she got something open, she would

This was when she finally got tired of the picture session.

this was a cute pic, but he hurt his
knees when he landed!
He got several water guns too! So much fun!!
I feel totally threatened! NOT! :)
