3 VERY lucky people...

The first three people to leave a comment on this post will receive something made by me. However, there are some limitations:

1. I make no guarantee that you will like what I make.
2. What I create will be just for you.
3. It will be done this year.
4. You have no clue what it is going to be - cards, bows, a bag, frame or a little invention of my own. I may bake something and mail it to you . Who knows? Not you that's for sure!
5. I reserve the right to do something extremely strange. It may blow your mind!

Here's the catch, if you choose to do this. You must post this on your blog and be ready to make something for three people too. This will be fun! When you receive the fabulous item I make you, you must post a picture of it on your blog. Now time to comment and start thinking about what you will be making for someone else! ;)

A couple new tricks...

One of Squirts favorite things to say lately is, "Duke, NO". Of course, it's usually as she's shoving some piece of food in his mouth, but sometiems she just walks around the house saying it. He looks so sad when he hears it so I try to tell him he's a good boy. She also has another new favorite word: poke. She LOVES poking people, including herself, and poking bubbles and poking anything. She'll poke on command, too. If I say, poke shawna, she'll walk over and poke her. It's funny. I don't even know where she learned the word from, but it's cute.

Frik and I have been going to the gym together and leaving her in the free (thanks to my VIP membership) daycare. It's been good for us to be able to do something togther, but she hasn't been enjoying the daycare very much. They actually had to page me back to pick her up today b/c she was so sad. When I got there, I asked her if she was hungry and she said, "mMMmm" so we got her some food and she was much happier. She's been doing really well with communicating lately. She told me that her shoe was falling off by saying "shoes stuck" while we were walking into Costco the other day, and when she's hungry or wants something, she will say no when I offer everything until I get to what it is that she wants. It's fun, but it'll also be nice when she knows a couple of other words so she can tell me straight out what she wants instead of playing the guessing game. :)

She's also realized that it's funny to lie. I asked her if she pooped and she said yes, so I went to change her diaper and there was no poop, which she thought was hillarious. silly girl.

We had an all you can eat sushi party on tuesday with Sukie, Wudan, Striker, and some of the fish friends. I was really looking forward to it and was very happy with the sushi, but I realized that all you can eat sushi isn't really that great of a discount because you only end up eating 2 or so rolls anyway, and that'd cost anywhere from 15-20, which is the price of the all you can eat... But you can get more variety with the all you can eat and not even feel guilty looking at the prices, so that's a bonus. I guess that we're going to make the sushi night a monthly tradition. mmm... looking forward to that. And Squirt loves the shrimp, so I know she'll enjoy it, too!
