My First Giveaway-A Sneak Peek

On September 3-4, 2009, I will be participating in the End Of The Summer Blog Party
over at the Multiples and More Blog Network. I'm super excited about it, and have been working hard to have my own giveaway at the party!

Thanks to the magic of Facebook, I have had the chance to reconnect with my old high school friend Andrea, and she had graciously offered an amazing package of goodies to the lucky winner. On top of making beautiful bibs, blankets, and even clothing, she is a mom of two adorable girls and is going to school to become a doctor! For now, Andrea has re-opened her store, this time on Etsy, and you can take a look at some of her handiwork. Check it out here.

Below is a sneak peek of what will be in my giveaway later this week. Included in the giveaway will be two gorgeous blankets, two adorable bibs, and a surprise for Mom (you will see it when you come back on September 3 &4 to participate in the giveaway).

Don't you just love the colors? If my boys weren't too big for blankets and bibs, I would want this for myself! Oh, and for you mom's of twins (or even two kiddos), each blanket has a different color border and each bib has a different color backing, to help you know which one belongs to which kid!

Come back Thursday and Friday this week and play along both here on my blog, and at the Multiples And More blog! You might just win something amazing!

First Day of School

Tuesday, August 18, was Nicholas and Matthew's first day of preschool. They were so excited to go, and talked about school for weeks before starting. On Monday, they went to meet their teacher, Ms. Poteat, and after meeting their teacher they were off to the store to buy backpacks and lunch boxes.

They will go to preschool two days a week, on Mondays and Tuesdays. They scored the teacher who is a little wild and crazy and likes to do lots of arts & crafts and generally get messy. I think they will be in heaven as the year progresses! Their school day lasts from 9am-1pm, and they get a snack and lunch.

Below are a few pictures we took before they headed off for their first day.

New backpacks!

They can't wait until next Monday, when they can return to "cool", as they call it. :-)


Dan and I have a little news to share, and I've found a couple of pictures that will help us.

We found out in May that Matthew and Nicholas
will be Big Brothers, because I'm...
I'm due in...

In other words,

So now you know!
