Tomorrow I start my month of service. I haven't decided yet if I'm going to publicly blog it though like my friend Julie. I might just blog that I did it that day. Perhaps it will be a blurb at the bottom of my posts. Or if I'm thinking it's particularly share-worthy and I need blog-fodder for the day, then I'll post about it.
Anyways, this post is dedicated to a bunch of firsts from the first month of the new decade. Not all have pictures.
Our first mud-fight. I suppose it had to happen eventually having five boys and all. Sorry neighbor Bill if you heard all the things these four mud-laden children are grounded from. At least I was level-headed enough to get a picture.Why yes, those are school clothes on Gabbers and Pookie.
On the 16th of January, Danny baptized Pookie, our first child, into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Pookie's first Pinewood Derby. His car got the "Most Character" award, made it across the finish line, and didn't even come in last! Hurray!
I got my first offer through the blog! It is from Hometownseeds.com. I know it's not like a Wii or a year supply of toilet paper, but I am THROUGH THE ROOF EXCITED because now I have survival seeds for my food storage. My kids are begging me to plant them instead of saving them. Right now, Hometown Seeds are offering a 10% discount as a way of saying Thanks for helping to build their business. Just enter the coupon code thanks from now through February 28, 2010, and 10% will be reduced from the total cost of any order.
I'm not sure how to do a disclaimer "properly." But here goes my first disclaimer: I have received a pack of Survival Seeds in exchange for putting their link on my blog. (It's over there --------> in the right sidebar if you're looking for it.) When I do decide to plant them, or buy other seeds to plant, I will type up my own thoughts on them that may or may not be the same as your own experience with them. I'm sure seeds are choking hazards for children under three. So keep out of reach of Gremlins.
