Matthew’s First Nightmare

Matthew(4) woke up early this morning crying. When I asked what was wrong he said he had a scary dream.

Poor little guy! I hugged him close and asked him what he dreamed about and he said he dreamed that he died. I am sure he doesn’t have a firm grasp on what death is so I asked him what happened. Through tears he said he just died and that was all. He couldn’t tell me how or what happened afterwards.

We don’t have TV so I know it isn’t something he saw on a TV show or commercial. We screen all the movies the kids watch and they haven’t seen anything scary lately.
Poor guy also had a fever and really didn’t look well so I gave him some Tylenol. It took a short while to calm him down but he finally went back to sleep.

I wonder what that was all about. 6 kids and this is my first ‘death in dream’ episode.
Is this normal? I am not really worried, just curious. It all seems so strange to me.

Just a little self promotion…

Just wanted to let you all know that I am now making banners, buttons, and logos!

Also, I do business cards, post cards, and greeting cards. I am really needing the extra cash because we are being transferred in the spring and have a lot of work to do on the house before we can put it on the market in Feb. Being on a debt free plan doesn’t allow for much financial wiggle room!

If you need any custom work done, Christmas cards, business cards, advertising material please visit my designs page or my buttons and banners page. I have a small portfolio of logos I have completed here.

This Weeks Giveaway!!! BabyLegs!

This week we are going to have 3 winners!
The first place winner will be given their choice of 3 pair of BabyLegs.
The second place winner will be given their choice of 2 pair (what is left over after the first place winner has chosen).
The third place winner will get to choose one pair.

About BabyLegs.
With many styles for girls and boys, these little leg
warmers are perfect for your baby, toddler, or even older child this winter.
BabyLegs are sure to keep your little ones legs warmer than ever! Easy to use,
these little one-sized wonders will fit from baby to most 10 year olds
eliminating the need to purchase size after size as your child grows! BabyLegs
make a perfect and inexpensive gift for any baby or toddler. Not only are they
completely adorable but they are functional and long lasting, as well!BabyLegs
are made of 80% cotton, 15% polyester, 5% spandex.


What I love about BabyLegs…
BabyLegs help bridge the gap between Sam’s socks and his pants. When he is being held and carried around his little legs become exposed and now that the weather has cooled off he gets cold so much quicker. BabyLegs keep his legs from the cold chill of winter and are so cute! Not only that, while the weather fluctuates between cold and warm (seen frequently in the more southern states) BabyLegs make a great sleeve. You simply pull the sleeves off when the weather warms up! No need to bring a bulky jacket when you know the weather will heat up after a few hours!
My 12 year old daughter wears them for added style on her arms and legs!

Now, the rules…
I am going to give away this package to THREE lucky commenters. You can enter twice by following the directions here by Sunday 11/18/07:

  • Entry #1: If you run across this blog and you want to win this item just leave a comment.
  • Entry #2: Link to this entry from your blog where you wrote about this giveaway and then leave a second comment with the link where you passed on this giveaway info. This entry should be SEPARATE from your first entry.

The winners will be chosen by a random number generator on Monday 11/19/07.

There is no obligation and no need to give any info out unless you win (in this case I will privately request your address for shipping). This is simply a fun way for me to get rid of some extra product before our military transfer next Spring. The items you will receive, should you win, are brand new, never used. These are usually overstock items that need to be cleared away quickly or items that are on clearance.

I will continue to have weekly giveaways as long as I have product needing to exit my house so check back often! In the near future we plan to offer up a pair of Pedoodles, BellyHuggers, a feeding package, and more! Subscribe to our
RSS Feed to be sure you don’t miss a thing!

A Free Pink Dyson? A Hoax?

This pink Dyson that I keep seeing on other mama’s websites looks very appealing. I have a Dyson, the purple one called ‘The Animal’. It is VERY NICE! The best vacuum I have ever owned.

We had a Kirby once. Enough said.

Anyway, I keep seeing these pink Dyson buttons everywhere, for quite a while now too. I thought it would be fun to try to win one but the rules for the giveaway didn’t seem right to me. Post the button on my blog or email 10 people about it? How on earth would Dyson keep up with who has entered and if they really emailed 10 people? Being the super sceptical person I am, A few weeks ago I decided to get a hold of the Dyson company to get more information about it.

They said they weren’t giving away a pink Dyson and apologized for any inconvenience this has caused me. It is all a hoax.
So, if Dyson isn’t giving away any pink Dysons then who is? And why do I continue to still see these pink Dyson buttons everywhere.

I would LOVE to have a pink Dyson but I guess I should be happy with the one I have. It isn’t everyday that a woman gets a vacuum cleaner that she loves to use. I have had my Dyson for 3 years and I still love to vacuum with it.

Telemarketers – mildly irritating

I just found this AWESOME website!

I get a lot of telemarketer calls. Day in and day out. I think when we finish paying off our credit cards and move in the spring they might stop. I can only hope.

Anyway, there are a few numbers that call all the time. Most of the time when I answer the phone there is nobody there, or they ask for my name, I tell them it is me, and they hang up. If I let the machine get it they never leave a message.
This was getting mildly irritating so I decided to type the number into my browser to see if I could find out who these different numbers belong to.

That is when the coolest website came up. Who Calls Me is a website where you can type in a telemarketer number that calls and information about the call.
From the Who Calls Me site

Recent Phone Call Reports
This is a user supplied database of phone numbers of telemarketers, non-profit organizations, charities, political surveyors, SCAM artists, and other companies that don’t leave messages, disconnect once you answer, ignore the Do-Not-Call List regulations, and simply interrupt your day.
If you received a strange call, most likely you are not the only one. Search for this phone number to see the reports of others. If there are no reports yet, leave your comment to start a conversation.

It is such a relief to be able to type in a number and know who called (in case I might have missed something important). Almost every number I have typed in has brought up much information about the caller from others who get the same calls. A few nights ago somebody (claiming to be Bank Of America) tried to sell me life insurance after 8pm. Now that I know I can type in the numbers and get info on the caller I can comfortably ignore those calls when they come in.

Our youth in the positive!

A Stafford County Virginia high school girl was denied permission to start a pro-life club.
She wasn’t taking no for an answer.
This beautiful young lady felt a leading from God to start this pro-life club and ‘no’ wasn’t going to cut it. She didn’t hesitate to take the matter to Junior Court.
With all the unfortunate problems with today’s youth, disrespect of authority and disregard for human life, I was completely elated this morning to hear of this young girls push for what she knew was right.

She won! Read the story here

Stephanie Hoffmeier, 16, says when she received the letter from school officials denying her proposal for a pro-life group she wasn’t worried.

“I just prayed and asked for God’s will to be done,” she said.


On Sept. 12 Hoffmeier filed a law suit claiming her constitutional right to free speech had been violated when her group proposal was rejected.
The original reason for rejection was because her club had nothing to do with school curriculum however, Hoffmeier was unsatisfied being singled out when other groups are permitted on campus.

The filed law suit was all that was needed. The school reversed their decision and Stephanie Hoffmeier’s parents couldn’t be more happy with their daughter determination.

Stephanie’s group will not only focus on pro-life issues but abstinence as well. They have participated in a pro-life day event where more than 30 students showed up. Their first meeting a few weeks ago had more than 20 show up. Stephanie says there are many, many more students yet to join.

In a day where the news is littered with negative stories of derailed youth, school shootings, children participating in inappropriate acts, and parental neglect we can still smile knowing that God is still working in the lives of our young. What a blessing this story is!
