I blog instead of scrapbooking in hopes of preserving a part of our life for the future.
We enjoy beach trips, going to Church and spending time together...all as a family...because that's what we are.

And then she peed in her pants

Well, not quite! But I am SO excited.

Turns out I'm a winner. I entered several giveaways that The Nester held on her "Giveaway Day". Of course, I didn't think I'd actually win. That's the same thing I thought about a year ago when I won a prize from Jo-Lynne . It's nice to win something when you're feeling a bit like a loser.

The Muffin is being oh so three these days and she's driving me and her Daddy crazy. Right this second she's saying, "Ma'am, could you please help me, ma'am." It seems that I'm only good for "helping" her clean up toys today. And by "help" , I mean I do all the work while she whines and complains about how one of her body parts hurt. Then she'll have a tantrum about something and move on eventually. I know why they refer to three as the Trying Threes. I'm trying so hard to do what's best for her, but it's so hard!

We're off to Oz this Saturday with The Muffin & Cousin Callie. I'm praying that our trip is uneventful (tantrum free too) and that both girls are able to enjoy themselves. Baby Ellie will be with my mom and sister. I really wanted to take her, but I don't want her out in the cold and wind so it's best that she stay behind. This will probably be the longest I've been away from her so far, so I know I'll miss her.

Anyway...maybe I'll get something to give as a Christmas gift or I might be selfish and only get something for myself. Check out Just Simply Southern and tell me what I should get.

**UPDATED** Miss Muffinhead cleaned up all of her stuff alone! She had bowls, spoons a muffin pan and a pound of dried pintos. (by far her favorite thing to play with these days) She had everything in her hands and dropped all of the beans on the hardwood floor and they went everywhere. She almost lost it, but I told her just to go and play and I'd sweep them up. At least she did manage to clean them up all by herself!

I don't know how much your GC to the giveaway is but I LOVE the Large Decor Block. The Cross Blocks are cool too!!! I love all the colors. They'd fit so well in my house. Must bookmark this artist.

Anyway, my Abigail is going to be three so very soon. *SIGH* And I remember when Elaina was 3 so I definitely empathize!
