And I quote...

"When people move side to side, it means their bottom is too heavy."

Statement made by Malachi as we were driving the other day.

It's Not a Vita-Mix

A while ago I posted about my love affair with blog giveaways. I recently won my second blog giveaway! I was more like a runner's up really. The giveaway was hosted by this gal. She was giving away a Vita-Mix Blender! I already have one for myself but I still left my comment to try to win it for someone I love...sorry Aim :)!

Anyhow, I was picked as a runner up and instead won a copy of her book, The Handbook of Vintage Remedies. This is a book with herbal remedies for a wide range of things like athlete's foot, heartburn, low milk supply for breastfeeding, teething, name a few. I haven't had the chance to look through the whole thing but I think it will be a nice resource to consider. She also has 'recipes' for natural cleaning and skin care remedies that I am anxious to try.

He Worked, He Saved, He Did It!

Well, Malachi finally saved up the $20 for his Razor scooter! . We had been planning on finding one on craigslist but how excited we all :) were to get a NEW one when we found it on sale at Toys R Us 50% off so it was 19.99! He is very proud of his new toy, we are very proud of him for being so patient and saving! Here are a few pictures with his new "ride!" :)

Visit from Grandma and Grandpa

My parents were here visiting for a little over a week and we had a great time just hanging out. I did a horrible job of taking photos so I wish I had more to post than this one but I was just too busy soaking up all the spare minutes, I couldn't bother myself to get the camera. ;)

Highlights...going on walks, Grandma reading, reading, reading with Malachi, a couple trips to Costco (thanks mom and dad for stocking up our fridge and freezer), Kurtis and I got to go on 2 dates! And I can't forget, Grandma jumping on the trampoline with Malachi will be a memory Malachi won't soon forget! Thanks for all the time you spent with us. We love you!
