An award for me??

I'd like to take a moment and thank the academy.......Actually I'd like to thank Helen of "Feeding a Family of Five for Fifty". She is from Scotland and I think one of my favorite parts of the award was when she told me about it in my comments. She said "wee blog award for you lass". How much do you love that? I love that "accent". :) I think one of my favorite post was this one and I feel a bit badly about that because it was such a horrible day for her but I can relate to having a horrible day and then your kids getting sick so that the "horrible day" becomes the easier part of the day. Can't we all? She's great so go and check her out.

The body of this great award reads:
"This award is bestowed to blogs that are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to five bloggers who must choose five more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

So in the spirit of "passing it on".

To my friend Mariah who is leaving us and moving away (jerk) J/K. I love her blog because she takes beautiful pictures and even better isn't afraid to be unabashedly honest. My sisters and I are VERY sarcastic and yet Mariah surpasses all of us in that department and I've got to love anyone who is capable of good sarcasm. This is still probably my favorite post. Go and meet her.

To my friend Stephanie who kicks butt in the Mom department and has 5 kids. She is a great friend and blogger. Go check out her brood. She and Steve have beautiful children. I think that's why they had so many :) Love ya! This post cracks me up and I would love to be a fly on the wall when she has conversations like these.

To Alicia at "It aint easy being cheesy" because she just flat out makes me laugh but at the same time writes touching posts like this that make me cry. And as Dolly says in "Steel Magnolias" "laughter through tears is my favorite emotion".

Wooh this is taking long.........

Next up, Liz at "Double Duty Mom". She and I are always dealing with the same twin things at the same time because our twins are so close in age. I steal ideas from her and I cracked up at this post, recently. It made me realize that we had A LOT in common.

Lastly, John Deere Mom, I have declared my love for her before on my blog because she helped me do a design overhaul on this bad boy and I am still in awe that she took the time. I love her blog because of it's design, of course, but I LOVE the pictures. Most are unaware that at one point in my life I swore I'd marry a farmer. (To all my friends STOP LAUGHING). While I did much better with my non-farming husband Jared, I LOVE to look at her pictures, like these, of all her land and beauty. They are gorgeous.

So ladies the goal is to pass this onto five others but do what you can b/c this took a while :)

Whew, so that is that and I still have to blog about our awesome weekend. I was up with Alex all night who has decided to get a cold AFTER his brother was done keeping me up all night with bodily functions. Thanks, Kid! Once I am rested I will catch up on the blog. By the way, make sure you click on these links because I want to know that all my hard work paid off! Thanks!
