This weekend was a good one.Me and my oldest son Darrell delivered a load of wood we had cut up to the lake Saturday morning.Afterwards we ran by Winn Dixie and let me tell you they had one heck of a sale outside the store on some gift items..
I got some pre lit candy canes to put on walkway for 2 bucks!A blender for 1.00,a food chopper for 1.00,and they had lots of odd and end toys,stocking stuffers for 4/1.00! So i wound up getting like 4 bags for 20.00,this included 3 giant rolls of wrapping paper..I was happy....
By the time we returned the Grandson's had returned and Julie was watching them.Had to keep the goodies stashed till after dark and sneek them in.lol..
This morning we got up and loaded in the truck and went christmas tree hunting.Lot's of cedars up and down the road here so we always do that for christmas.I love the smell of a fresh tree and nothing better for xmas memories than tree hunting with the kids.We found the ''perfect tree'' in about an hour i guess..It was so warm today me,the boys billy and kolby and zack rode in the back of the back of the truck with short sleeves!Very strange.Then afternoon we went by my mom's for a while and my brother robert took the boys on a boat ride on the pond.They really liked that.She say's by next year the fish should be big enough to safely begin fishing..That would be fun..
I hope each of you have had a relaxed weekend and ready to face next week.Maybe a blessed wekkend for us all...

CLOSE TO HOME CONTEST<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Fans of Beyonce and her fam can get excited about the latest hip-hop trend from Planet Toys brought to you by Matthew (her dad) & Solange Knowles (her little sis.) Baby Jamz just might be the first non-annoying musical line of toys I will admit to actually enjoying. Gray dug the Mix Master Chair [$24.77] before I could even get it out of the box. Apparently you’re never too short to be a DJ. With lighted buttons, toddlers can compose their own renditions of This Old Man, Skip To My Lou, & Old MacDonald. And these aren’t your Grandma’s nursery rhymes.
For the toddling crowd that want to join in on the dance mat craze, there’s even a Baby Jamz Dance Mat [$19.84]. Get the age 2 & up set to shake their diapered bootays with 36 seconds of classic nursery rhymes. Baby Jamz products can be found at Wal-Mart & WalMart.com.
WIN and boogie on me! I’m giving away a Baby Jamz Dance Mat and Dance Praise 2- The ReMix to two lucky winners. Just leave a comment here and let me know which prize you’d prefer! The winners will be chosen at random Tuesday, Dec 11th. You don’t have to have a blog to enter, but be sure you include a valid email address where I can contact you.

During the Month of December I am holding a contest in conjunction with Baby Sherpa at http://www.babysherpa.com/. We will be giving some lucky bloggers some great Baby Sherpa gear including a Baby Sherpa Diaper Backpack, a Short Haul Diaper Backpack and a DayLite Diaper Bag.
I initially wanted to do a contest to give away just the Baby Sherpa Diaper Backpack but Heather from Baby Sherpa insisted on a first, second and third prize. That is very generous. So instead of one prize there will be three. A Baby Sherpa Diaper Backpack for first place, A Short Haul Diaper Backpack for second place and a Daylite Diaper Bag for third place. The winner will get their choice of color and the prize will be shipped to their location. And speaking about shipping.

Kate of Babylune is hosting The Generous December Group Writing Project. “On your own blog, write a new post about your favorite charity, social cause or helpful organization.” You could win anywhere between $30 - $100, depending on the number of entries. Deadline is December 19th.
Let’s talk about our best impulses. Let’s talk about our efforts to see the better side of humanity. Let us talk of sharing, of help and of solutions to suffering and despair. Let us talk about the way we act when we choose to do the right thing.
This December, I am combining my charitable campaign with a group writing project.
On your own blog, write a new post about your favorite charity, social cause or helpful organization. While I may have a bias toward causes that address maternal health and children’s well-being, I do believe that all people on this planet have the right to freedom, food, shelter, safety and health care. Domestic, international, global and local interests are equally important. Tell me, and our readers, why you believe your special organizations are helping to make the world a better place. Tell us why you support them and why we should too.
If you don’t have a blog, write your entry in the comments form below and I will post it on Babylune.
In your own post, link back to this one to tell others about the existence of this project. To make sure I include your entry, leave a comment with the URL to your entry in the comments section belo
