Can anyone out there sing? Want to record this for me? That would be hysterical!!
Email me if you are interested,
Not this year.
This year I began researching things that were worth spending money on, things that would benefit my kid in multiple ways (sensory, social, small motor skill) and that my kids would like. You will see some of these things you have already thought of, but hopefully you will think of it it a new light, and some of these things will be new.I am using this list to do my shopping and I sincerely hope it will at least provide you with inspiration for your holiday shopping.
Here is how you can win:
1. You will need to follow this blog (publicly through Google located on the top of the right column) and
2. Answer the following question as a comment to this post (click on the word comment below my signature):
"If you could buy a three pack of socks--what three colors would they come in?"
OK, once you have joined and answered, you are officially entered. The contest will run from Tuesday 11/10/09 to Sunday 11/22/09 and will end at 7pm PST.
Assuming we have more than 10 entries, they will be selected by random drawing and results will be posted here on Monday 11/23/09.
That's it--thanks again to Jessica and good luck!
"The Speedy Ducks" by Gabriel
His answer to why this photo fits into the theme was, "The water is beautiful; you can kind of see reflections and the ducks make little waves and you can see blue on the ducks if you really look carefully."
"Berries With Leaves" by Nick
His answer to why this photo fits with the theme was, “Beauty means colorful. The picture shows berries that are reddish-orange. The reddish orange berries show a lot of beauty because there are two colors on them which is beauty.”
I am ridiculously proud of their photos, and had more fun than an adult woman should teaching them the basics of photography--including using the camera, focusing the lens, lining up the subject, perspective and lighting.
Now I just have to go pick up the final product at the local drug store 1-hour photo, mat it and submit them on time tomorrow. It is hard work being the mom!
They might be a little sad if they don't actually win (Last time we "entered" something it was to get our letter to President Obama in a book, and Gabriel's letter was actually selected, setting an awful precedence)...but they are both winners in my book.
