So last night I finally convinced C into carving pumpkins. He said that he would, but he didn't want to. So I gave him the Pattern Book and he picks the hardest pattern. Go figure! We also got Princess P a pumpkin to draw on, so it would be her "own" work. She was doing good until she decided that she had rather eat the marker and draw on her face, lol. It was too cute. Here are some pictures from last night. Can you tell what they are? Just in case you can't, My Pirate Ship, Princess P's wonderful creation and C's Happy Halloween Tree. (Please excuse the hubby's feet in the doorway).

Little Lamby

I was lucky enough to win an adorable Lamb Pillow from Dippy Dot on Raising Itty-Bitty Bookworms. We have nicknamed the Lamb "Lamby" and it is easily becoming my daughters favorite toy (read: Favorite item to chew on). Dippy Dot has a variety of items including one of my personal favorites the U. S. Air Force Angel :). All of these creations are brought to life by "Nana" who loves to crochet and quilt. She also makes ties for military troops, toys for St. Jude, and hats, booties, and blankets for preemies. So go and check out Dippy Dot, I'm sure you will find something to fall in love with.

We took a trip home to Virginia this past week and it was so much fun. We let Princess P's Grandma watch her so C and I could go out. It was nice getting to see both of our families but it is nice to be home. Now I just have to unpack and do laundry. I thought I would post some pictures I took back in the mountains.

I have a fear of NIP (nursing in public). I don't know if it is because people give me dirty looks or because I have a wiggling 4 month old trying to pull down the blanket that is covering us. Well I have found the solution to at least one of the problems. It is called a Hooter Hider and its made by Bebe au Lait. Luckily you can enter to win one at Pho For Five ! But hurry the giveaway ends Sunday October 12th.

The Reborn Craze

I was watching our local news tonight and it had a segment on Reborn Babies. I had not heard of these dolls until recently and it made me curious as to what these Babies were all about. At first I thought they were the teaching dolls that they give to teenagers in High School ,but I was wrong. Grown people have the Reborn Babies and take care of them like real children. They have very human like characteristics and resemble newborn babies. To me it seems a little strange. People say they have the dolls to "fulfill" the urge to nurture something. One lady even said she has hers because she could not have children and this was the next best thing. I seen on the report where people are buying cribs, carseats, and strollers for these dolls. Police even broke into one car because a "baby" was locked in it. Turns out it was a Reborn Baby. I just feel very uneasy about adults playing with dolls. But I guess to each their own.

Nice Try...

After reading all the money savvy ladies blogs I decided I would try to get in on the action. Well...... I FAILED. I tried my hand at all the coupon deals at Walgreens this week and it didn't work out to well. Although I did get some good deals it didn't turn out as I expected. I thought you could use Manufacturers coupons with the Register Rewards and I was wrong. So all I succeeded in was making the clerk frustrated and making the people behind me mad. I did have one good purchase I am happy about on childrens Tylenol. Walgreens is having a sale on Childrens Tylenol for 4.99 and if you buy 3 or more you get $5 Register Rewards. I found a $5 off 3 bottles coupon and $1 off Manufacturers coupon and when I got to the store the Easy Saver Catalog has $1.50 (which rang up 3 times) coupon on it PLUS the bottle of Tylenol had a $1.50 off coupon on the box! So in total I spent $4.02 on 3 bottles of Childrens Tylenol. But I didn't get the $5 RR with it, I guess because I used to many coupons. So kuddos to all the ladies that can walk away with paying $.20 for 15 items, I don't know how you do it.
