This Weeks Giveaway!!! Pedoodles!

Two winners this week! Happy Thanksgiving!!!

I am giving away one pair of Pedoodles toddler shoes to two commenters!

Keep in mind that while I have all these shoes in stock I do not have all sizes and we won’t be purchasing anymore. If you are chosen as the winner you will get to choose your pair from what we have in stock. I also have one other shoe not shown. It is like the pink and purple sandal only blue and green instead. Pedoodles toddler shoes range from size L(12 to 18 mo) to size XXXL(3 to 4 years). Honestly, my 4 year old is only in an XXL with plenty of growing room.

About Pedoodles:
Medical Experts agree that the best shoes for your baby are soft soled shoes that simply act as a second skin to protect your baby’s feet while allowing them to develop naturally. Soft soled shoes are perfect for this until your child grows from a crawling and cruising baby to a very active toddler. While his feet are still growing rapidly you don’t want to impede natural foot development but you still need something a little tougher to protect his tender feet as outdoor play takes on a different meaning. Pedoodles Next Step leather toddler shoes fit that description perfectly. Not only are they the perfect toddler shoe for those still developing tender soles they are absolutely adorable with many styles available. This quality footwear is not only soft and comfortable, but easy to put on. With so many cool options you will find a pair to match any child’s personality and your toddler will love wearing them!
Pedoodles are top in construction quality. These aren’t shoes that will just fall apart after a few months of use. Amazingly, they aren’t heavy either. A lightweight shoe goes a long way in walking, climbing, and running comfort.
All Pedoodles shoes come in a very fun gift tote bag that your child will enjoy using over and over again to carry around her trinkets!

My personal opinion:
my 4 and 2 year olds have every boy style Pedoodle makes. My frugal friends have purchased numerous pairs from me too, even though they are not the most inexpensive shoes out there – they are just that cute, that comfortable, and that unique. Plus, they are very well made with leather uppers and very flexible rubber soles.
I love these shoes for their style most of all. We get comments on them everywhere we go. Plus Ben(2) loves that he can get his shoes on all by himself.

Now, the rules…
I am going to give a pair of these away to two commenters. You can enter twice by following the directions here by Sunday 11/25/07:

  • 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 11/26/07.

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 Cute Baby Shoes, BellyHuggers, a feeding package, and more! Subscribe to our RSS Feed to be sure you don’t miss a thing!

ESPN Weekend

Ryan, my knight, has managed to infiltrate the ‘in crowed’ and has been invited to work for ESPN on their Monday Night Football game shows. ESPN will pay him (and very well at that) to do boy work at just about any Monday Night Football game. He only goes to local games in Seattle and usually brings home a nice sized paycheck. We don’t have TV so I haven’t been able to see him but I have pictures. He has worked the last 3 Seahawk Monday Night Football games and he absolutely loves it. I wish I could go too but, alas, I gots kids.

Here are some pictures of his last year of ESPN work. Left to right: Ryan (in the glow), Nick, Michael Irvin, Tom Jackson

Ryan is here with Jimmy Kimmel.
I don’t really know who he is – some funny guy from TV or something.
Ryan said he was a nice guy but apparently Mr. Kimmel
made a booboo and ESPN was not happy.

Camera Dude
How some people fall into such fun jobs is beyond me. Ryan happens to be one of those dudes who just knows people.

FREE ARBY’S FRIES!!!

Thanks to Crystal at Money Saving Mom I am going to run out and get my TOTALLY FREE Arby’s fries!
Arby’s is only a block away. We are so close that when we are outside we can sometimes here the drive-thru speakers. I really hate it when I can smell them.
Anyway, the coupon is for a FREE medium fry – no other purchase necessary and it is only good for today.

My Baby Won’t Sleep!

For the past few days Sam(6 mo) has had trouble sleeping. He is exhausted, his eyes are all red and are dark around them. In the past 24 hours he has only slept for about 5 hours. He is cranky but not overly so – just a little fussy and restless.

I have 6 kids and I have never experienced anything like this. Sure, I have had the baby who wouldn’t sleep because he is teething, has a tummy ache or is sick or something but nothing like this with no symptoms of pain or sickness. His diapers are normal, he is eating good, and I have given him Tylenol for possible teething – it didn’t make a difference. I haven’t changed my schedule or diet at all and I don’t feel sick or anything. I still wonder if it might be something in my milk.

It started out like a mild insomnia a few days ago but now it seems pretty serious. He just won’t sleep! He starts to fall asleep but then jerks awake after only a few minutes. He does this whether I am holding him or not.

I am not a big fan of taking my kids to the doctor for every little ailment but he looks so miserable that I am going to take the little guy to the doc tomorrow if he doesn’t start sleeping tonight.

Yes, I know he looks fine in the picture but it was taken a week ago before he abandoned sleeping.

To Cut or Not To Cut

I am thinking of cutting my hair. It is pretty long and really pretty, I think. The reason I might cut it is because my husband likes it when I change my hair drastically. In the decade we have been married I have grown it very long and cut it up to my chin 3 times. Each time I cut it he loves it but for some reason I am having trouble making the decision to cut it this time. It is cut really nicely around my face and frames it really well.

This time my daughter wants my braid. I think that is so sweet and it is really motivating me to just go ahead and do it.

I just don’t know.

What do ya’ll think? Should I chop it? My sister-in-law is a cosmatologist and will do it for free. It is colored so I cannot give it away.
I am so torn! I love my hair but the truth is it is driving me crazy!

My kids tend to fall asleep in odd places or while in the middle of doing something.
For a while we thought maybe Matthew(4) had some strange sleep disorder. He really would fall asleep in the oddest of places.

Here is Matthew when he fell asleep while coming
up stairs to tell me he was ready for bed.


Here he is asleep at the table. You can’t see it
but he has a cookie in his hand.


Here is our youngest, Sam (6mo), sleep-bouncing today. I found it very funny.

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.
