It's Leap Day

Four years ago, we almost had ourselves a Leap Day baby.  I was having slight contractions with my fourth child, I was a week past due and already knew I was having a c-section due to the fact my 3rd child had to be delivered c-section.  It was Friday, Feb. 29th 2008, Leap Day.  My doctor said, "we can take you in right now or if you want Me to deliver the baby we can try to get through til Monday (as that was her next day working), your choice".  Well my husband and I decided to wait til Monday, as we just thought we would like our baby to have a birth date that is visible on the calendar every year:)
On Monday, my son Graham was born.  He will be turning 4 on Saturday!  But to all of those who do have a Leap Day birthday - Happy Birthday!!!

I just have to let you all know that I just won two tickets from http://savingthefamilymoney.com/ to go see Dave Ramsey in Orlando.  I am so excited!  First, this couldn't have come at a better time for my family and myself.  With all the changes we have been going thru, I hope to find some great inspiration - I've heard nothing but wonderful things about his events.  And second, I never win anything...lol! 
If you have never heard of Dave Ramsey, go here to check him out:

Hope you all a great day :)

Happy Sunday

Hope you are all having a nice Sunday.  Weather was pretty weird today, in the 80's but very windy and dark clouds here and there - not the kind of weather I am used to this time of year, but hey who's complaining!   I went out with my daughter today to pick up a few craft items.  When we moved from Maine to Florida, I left most of my items and supplies back at our orchard store, so I am trying to play catch up and put a few ideas together.  I was working on some label ideas today and came across this picture that I just had to share.  Now this was taken back in October while we were in the park walking around a craft fair.  I thought he/she was just beautiful.  Maybe I can turn this into something - a cross stitch?  Who knows, anyway, wishing you all a wonderful week :)

~ God Bless

Pasta Recipes

So lately, I've been real tired of the same old boring once a week pasta w/ canned sauce dinners - I agree, they're quick and the kids like them but I decided to try a couple different renditions and as to my surprise, they all loved them!  Here's a couple of ideas that are easy, quick and delicious! http://applegrovetreasures.blogspot.com/p/tasty-treasures.html
