YIPPEE!! I"m so excited! I won a contest! WOO HOO!

It was from Heather @ freebies for moms. The contest was to share with her a sweet valentine message that youve either sent or received! Well I couldnt remeber exactly everyting I said, but I told her about the time I made a poster board for Dale & did it in a rhebus style..I said " you are worth more to me than $100,000 but instead of the word I put a $100,000 candy bar! And I had like 10 things like that on the poster. Anyway, Heather liked it!! WOO HOO!

So, here is what I won!

My Fruit Roll-Ups Giveaway
Posted: 26 Jan 2008 07:56 AM CST
The "Frududes" are making My Fruit Roll-Ups for my son to pass out as Valentines. This is a unique way to create Valentines for your child, minus any paper! I was amazed by the choices available to me: images, ink color, pattern, message. I selected a 3-piece random pattern with a "Be Mine" heart, a dinosaur, and my Valentine's message from my son. I am excited to receive my box of 30 custom My Fruit Roll-Ups, and can't wait to surprise my husband with one in his lunch to take to work.If you want to order your own box of My Fruit Roll-Ups, first enter my giveaway below. I'll be announcing the three winners on Sunday morning. If you don't win my giveaway, then you can order directly from their website, but be sure to place your order before February 2 to receive them in time for Valentine's Day. Also, don't forget to enter the promotional code BE MINE to get $10 off your order. That makes them $19.99 for a box of 30, which is 67 cents per roll-up (not including shipping which varies). Not bad for the sweetest Valentine around!Even more exciting is that I am giving away a FREE box of My Fruit Roll-Ups to 3 of my lucky readers! You can enter my giveaway anytime before midnight (CST) on Saturday, January 26. To enter please Email me with the sweetest Valentine's message you've sent or received. I'll be selecting my 3 favorite messages to award my 3 lucky readers. Remember that I am looking for a unique message! Keep the message short, but feel free to write a brief "story" behind the message to explain why it is so sweet to you!

So, I have designed mine already. I put 2 hearts on it & the message is " I love & adore you" since that is what I tell them all the time.

Check out her blog when you can. She said she hopes to be doing more give-a-ways.

What a difference....

What a difference 20 years makes! lol 20 years agon when we were raising our boys we went on certain field trips, called to schedule field trips, and paid certain prices! Now, while working with these little kiddos things have changed! Many field trip we did before we can't do now! Most of them due to 9/11. We can't tour our water system place, cant tour the Frito Lay factory ( one of our fave trips!), etc. Yesterday I went in to schedule a birthday party @ Chuck E Cheese' cant book that way..can only book online! And years ago we took our boys to play Laser Tag. There was a package on Sat's from 9-12 for $10 a boy ( which @ the time seemed a lot for us!) Now it's 20 min of play for $7 a boy!! We are not playing laser tag @ those prices! So, it's quite interesting finding things to do with these kiddos.
