More Smiles and Awards

Today I am linking up with Emmy Mom - One Day at a Time for her meme Ten Things To Smile About This Month. I also received an award from Emmy .  Thanks so much Emmy! With this award you are supposed to list ten things that make you smile or happy. So, following Emmy's lead, I am going to kill two birds with one stone and combine the meme and the award in to one.

10 Little Things that Made Me Smile in April, (in no particular order) with a collage for visual aide!

1. 12 years married to DaddyO. Sunday was our anniversary!
2. Lily making her Accelerated Reading Goal ALL BY HER SELF!
3. Bailey hitting grand slams at t-ball games.
4. Ashton having a positive attitude even though his brother is sometimes better than him at baseball and then ending up having an AWESOME game.
5. Daisy eating fruity pebbles all by her self.
6. Successful/Over Birthday parties.
7. Baseball games with my 3 favorite boys.
8. Taking pictures with my first DSLR.
9. Zoo animals that actually move around instead of laying there, lifeless.
10. Daisy playin' tball.

And now I would like to pass this award on to:
Lluvia at I've Been Thinking
The Boob Nazi at How Could You Not?!

I also received an award from Kari at p.s.love.love.  Thanks Kari!!
The rules state that I have to share 5 things about me & then pass this on to 5 Beautiful Bloggers.
1. I am 4'11"
2. I nursed all of my kids. Lily for 13 months, Boys for 16 months and Daisy for 18 months.
3. I've never had braces.
4. Hamburgers are my favorite food!
5.  I only wear ONE contact.

I would like to pass this award on to these Beautiful Bloggers.

3. Mighty M at The Mighty M Family
4. Danielle at Humes, Party of 3

I was also tagged by Kari at p.s. love.love. to show-off my handwriting. So, here are the rules:

Write down the following, snap a pic and post it. I copied Kari and scanned mine!

1. Name/ Blog Name

3. Favorite letters to write
4. Least favorite letters to write

And I am sooo jealous of your camera. What kind did you get?

Oh that handwriting one looks fun though I will soon be embarrassing myself with my horrific handwriting :)

What a great month you had! So awesome that Bailey had some grand slams!

And I never would have guessed you are 4'11" :)

Michelle Pixie said...

Congrats on the camera! What did you get? It looks like a Canon. =)

Only 1 contact? I've never heard of anyone having just one!

You have very nice handwriting!

Rachel said...

Congratulations!!! Love those pictures - what a fun way to get some smiles! :)

Kmama said...

Congrats on your awards...and thank you so much for passing one on to me!!

I would have never guessed that you were only 4'11". You look much taller in your pictures. I was thinking you were more like 5'7" or 5'8". LOL

Why does everyone have such nice neat writing? I am always so envious!
You're lucky having not had braces. I had them and wouldn't mind having them again!

I love the list of accomplishments from the family! Everyone really deserves to have awards themselves!

Congrats on yours!
