Above and Beyond!

I won a giveaway that Kelly, over at The Barefoot Mama, hosted! I never expected to win..but thought I would at least try...and surprise!!! I won!!! I was sooo excited! She even added a few extra goodies into the giveaway for me! It is such great stuff! I can't wait to use the cookbook! How great is that? I always usually take the same food places when I attend a potluck supper...baked corn or green bean casserole...or a veggie tray. LOL This book will give me sooo many other GREAT ideas! I look forward to going through it! I also got 2 bags, Mary Engelbreit cards (which I LOVE), recipe cards that are sooo cute, and some scrapbooking stuff!!!

It is fantastic and I really appreciate and love it all!!!! Thank you so much Kelly!!!! Kelly has such a sweet blog. If you haven't checked it out can HERE.

And..thank you all so much for each of your comments. They mean the world to me. It also means so much that people actually READ my blog! LOL But you never know who all is reading unless you get if you haven't before...or rarely do..please comment! Let me know you have stopped by! I LOVE to hear from you! And...if you havent' yet...please check out my previous posts about the outside wood burner we got recently and also about the Fall Festival!!!

We went to storytime at the Library for the first time today! It went well and I think the kids had a good time...although Xavier was a bit shy. They do songs, stories, a craft and snack time! It's a really fun time for the kids. :o) Well....gotta run! I have a friend coming over...she is thinking about homeschooling and wants to see our curriculum and how we do things! Thanks for stopping by! It's a cold day here in PA...I hope you are warm and cozy wherever you may be!!! xoxo
