Is It Really Over?

Fall. I can't believe that it has came and went. It really went by way too fast this year. I know that it isn't officially over until December 20th. As the first official day of Winter is December 21st. I am not sure about how the weather has been around the rest of the state or the country for that matter but it sure has been cold here. We have been having flurries already. Last year we didn't see flurries this early. All three days this week when I went to pick up the kids it started flurrying. It's not even Thanksgiving yet. Now don't get me wrong I am actually enjoying the early winter weather. It's just a little weird. Not just two weeks ago we were out in the yard with the kids playing in the leaves. Yes it was a little cool but nothing like these last few days have been.

Well I really can't account too much for the last couple of days as I haven't stepped out of the house too much since yesterday afternoon. My wonderful sinus infection has come back in full force. I am now on my second round of antibiotics. I did not go to work on Thursday because my head felt like it was going to explode at any moment. Instead I stayed in bed most of the night as well of most of the day today. My head is feeling much better, not 100% but better. As a result of staying in bed most of the day I am now not tired when I should be. Go figure.

Enough about me, I would like to share some pics of the kids playing in the leaves in the yard from about two weeks ago. Also this week at preschool Jacob has been learning all about Indians and Thanksgiving. He made a "Indian" necklace, a Indian Headband and a noise maker all at school. One night while at home Nana and the kids also made an Indian Headband, they had quite a bit of fun. With pictures to prove it. I know I am a bit behind on sharing pictures but better late than never, right?

In This Box

On this box that Joe found on our porch sometime last week, was a shipping label with my name on it. It came from Branchburg, New Jersey. I was not expecting anything in the mail, I had not ordered anything online for sometime. Upon opening the box I discovered that I actually WON this stuff. Then after thinking about it for a bit I remembered entering some sort of online giveaway. I think it was on Lucky Magazine's website for Lucky Breaks Giveaways. I don't really try and win too many things cause I'm not really very lucky. Every once and a while I click on the link to Lucky Breaks on Kelly's Blog. Thanks Kelly! So here's what I won:

In the box from Aloe Creme Laboratories was a letter stating I was one of 136 lucky winners and the following products....

(2) AloSun Restorative Gel Creme

(2) AloSun AfterTan Original Tube

(1) AloSun Fragrance Free AfterTan

(2) AloSun Lemon Lights

(2) AloSun Citrus Soleil Shampoo

(2) AloSun Citrus Soleil Hair Mask

(1) AloSun Organic Body Oil

(2) AloSun Swimsuit Saver Shampoo

(2) AloSun Cooling Mist Spray

(1) Curederma Eye Correct

(1) Clearderma Cleanser

Retail Value: $154.00 While I cannot use most of these products at this time of the year, I am sure I will enjoy using them next year. I cannot wait.

I am currently having a small problem with my spacing on blogger. So if this post looks totally wacky I am sorry. Hope everyone had a great weekend. I am not really sure if I am ready for it to be this cold. They are calling for snow flurries, already? It's not even Thanksgiving yet. I definitely want more of a winter than we had last year that's for sure. Time will only tell.

Too Cute!

First let me set the scene before I tell you about the cutest conversation I had with Jasmine. You remember her, the little girl my son can't stop talking about. Last week Jacob had another field trip this time we went to The Library, we walked from his preschool. It was so cute walking with all the kids. Such a talkative little bunch. After story time was over, we all headed back down the stairs to head back to school. We were walking out the door and this is when the following conversation took place.

Jacob: Mommy look there's Jasmine.

Mommy: Yes, Jacob I see her.

Mommy: Hi Jasmine!

Jasmine: Hi! (pauses) Do you know what?

Mommy: What Jasmine?

Jasmine: I like your son. ( With the cutest little shy smile on her face)

Mommy: Well you know what Jasmine, Jacob likes you too.

Jasmine: He's so nice to me. He plays with me and he chases me on the playground. (Again with a huge smile on her face.)

Mommy: Bye, Jasmine!

Then it was time for us to join the rest of his class to start our walk back. How terribly cute was that? Of course this made Jacob so very happy. I have been wanting to share this story since this conversation took place. We've just been a little busy this past week.

Thank you everyone for all of your kind words. We appreciate them more than you know.

More stories and some pics from the past week to come soon. I have lots of catching up to do. Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Did You? I Did!

Today on my way home from dropping the kids off at preschool I stopped and voted. There are places all over the country that are giving away free stuff to those who voted. You just have to show off your "I Voted" sticker. Starbucks is giving away free coffee, however I am not a coffee drinker. Also Krispy Kreme is giving away free star shaped doughnuts. Ben & Jerry's scoop shops are giving away a free scoop of ice cream. These are just a few of the finds I found. In some places around the country Chick-Fil-A is giving out free sandwiches. None that are too close to us. Go ahead and get you free stuff. Have a great day!
