And the Winner Is!

Thank YOU ALL for helping me decide which picture to use of Miss Daisy. I thought it was interesting that the voting was very mixed. Each picture received some votes but the winner was #4!

In other news..............

Ashton is not the only one who has been receiving awards recently. I have been collecting some too! I have some very fabulous bloggy friends who have been kind enough to pass on some Blog Love!

The first two awards are from Ave at Made In Canarias. She is the coolest girl and I believe she is my only international follower! I ♥ her blog!

The “Splash Award” is given to alluring, amusing, impressive, inspiring blogs.
No rules with this one, just pass on the Love!

I am going to regift this to:


The rules:

1. Thank the person who nominated you for this award
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog
3. Link to the person who nominated you for this award
4. Name 7 things about yourself that people may not know.
5. Nominate 7 Kreativ Bloggers.
6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
7. Leave a comment on each.

First of all, I am a Rule Breaker! And second of all, I've got both babies today and one of the (ahem...not Daisy, tee hee) doesn't like to sleep! Therefore I will follow the rules for as long as the babes are sawin' logs!
7 things that people may not know: (these items have been recycled from previous get-to-know-me posts. These are the only things my sleep deprived/boring self can come up with!)

1.I have a bit of Closet OCD (not OCD denial, the place you hang your clothes). I like all the clothes to be organized in a certain way and almost every one's closets are organized differently. Lily and Daisy's clothes are organized by color. The boys' clothes are arranged by coordinating/matching outfits and my clothes are organized by the length of the sleeves.  I let DaddyO organize his own clothes! My Closet OCD is closely related to my Laundry OCD (certain items get hung up, others are folded in a very specific way)! **edited** DaddyO told me to add Proper Dish Placement in the Dishwasher OCD!

2. I don’t color my hair. It used to be quite a bit lighter but has gotten darker with each baby. Not too bad though for someone with dark eyebrows!

3. I DO NOT like to fly. Part of the reason is because I don’t fly very often. Last flight was Feb. 2008 and before that was in May of 2007. The other reason and really the true cause of my fears is that I love to watch “Seconds From Disaster” and “Air Emergency” on the National Geographic Channel. Why do I torture myself?

4. My Mom and I both have twins. Twins don’t run in the family, infertility does. Gotta love chlomid!

5. My feet are claustrophobic! They do not like socks or shoes and they really hate to be tucked in bed covers! We cover ourselves with only a down-comforter at night, with easy escape routes for my feet! It's really great that it is warm enough here to wear sandals year round!!

6. I am a ScrapLifter. I love to scrapbook, but I am not creative. Proper photo placement is not my "thing." I can however follow a pattern. Anyway, when my family looks at our albums they aren't going to know that I copied the layouts from somebody else!

7. I do not like to eat meat unless it is surrounded by some sort of carb!

and some Very Kreative Bloggers!:
Barclay at Unfailing Love
Sarah at The Merritt's

Thanks Ave!!

Love the picture you chose, though I loved them all. All your kiddos are precious.

I remember now that you and I have the same claustrophobic feet. I knew there was a reason I liked you so much. I don't like to fly either:)
