Wonderful Craft Idea

I am typing this on December 27th 2012 :) so there is still a lot of Christmas being shared. I found this wonderful craft on another blog, to do with the children and so want to share it with the kids at church in 2013. I thought I would post it here so that everyone could try it out. I wanted to make sure I posted it soon enough that you could get started the first of December. I love the idea of the nightly scriptures for the children to find or you can read to them if they are too young. This helps teach our children what Christmas is really about, gives us some family time to bond, helps us focus on the true meaning of Christmas so its a win win any way you look at it.

Free Holiday Hosting with Paula Deen

I just love to watch Paula Deen, I love her accent and lets face it butter is queen :).   Smithfield Ham's is offering a pdf book called Holiday Hosting with Paula Deen. It has an assortment of ideas and recipes. I found this link in January so I am hoping they leave the pdf file up until November of this year. If you click the link and it doesn't work drop me a line and let me know and I can email you the pdf since I saved it on my computer.

    I finally won a prize last night. It feels like forever since I won anything. Of course, that's mostly because I haven't been entering near as many giveaways. I have been sick for over a month now. It started with an eye infection that last about 10 days, as soon as I went to the dr to get some antibotic ointment for that, I got a terrible cold. The cold triggered a terrible asthma attack. When that happens my lungs get stuck in a never ending attack. I finally broke down and went to the dr again because I couldn't walk across a room I was so out of air or talk even. I had to get a steriod shot, a breathing treatment, 2 new inhalers and steroids to take at home. I already feel a lot better with just the shot and the breathing treatment.

   With me being so sick and just one thing or another we are doing something this year, we have never done. We are eating out for Thanksgiving. The house is in the middle of remodeling and there just isn't a way to fix anything here. We don't even have an oven. I can't imagine not cooking a Thanksgiving turkey and all the trimmings :(.  And now the dryer has tried to catch fire so we are having to dry clothes at the laundromat. I sure could use a cash prize or an appliance prize win :) Fingers cross, publishers clearing house lol.

    Sorry, I haven't been posting as  many giveaways. I have been feeling sick for days now and I finally broke down and went to the dr yesterday. Basically he did nothing, He told me to take some allergy eye drops and gave me a prescription for antibotic eye ointment. So far my eyes feel no better and he didn't even recommend anything for my sinus problem. I know its not infection in my sinuses but it is driving me crazy. I must look worse than I feel even because my dad come by and when he was leaving he said to make sure I called if I got down and left a list of places to call if I couldn't get him on his phone. He has never in 45 yrs done that :).  lol

    I haven't won much this month but I have gotten quite a few prizes in the mail. with at least 3 more coming over the next 3 days. I have officially gotten all the presents I am giving for Christmas for the grandbabies with a few for other children in the family also. Now I need to win some stuff for my daughters. It would be cool to have a complete Christmas due to giveaways.  I need to enter more giveaways but honestly haven't felt that great. My eyes hurt being on the computer and this old desktop just drags so much when entering giveaways. I would so love to win a new laptop or enough Amazon bucks to pay for one.. I miss mine so much. I only had a laptop a little over a year but but was it sure nice.
