Holidays and Laughter!

This week is crazy busy... there's so much on my schedule. Yesterday my niece told me my other niece is going to be in town and I kind of wigged out because there's so much happening I don't know how I'll fit more in! But I guess that's part of the challenge of the holidays is getting everything to fit in!

Today, I'm taking a deep breath and posting a couple of items I've been meaning to put out there! First of all, with the football game last weekend, I was really looking forward to seeing Hawk Daddy! He'd sent me some pictures of his ensemble and some of the detail work, and I wanted to see him in person! Wouldn't you know... he was right in front of the gate when we walked in!

First... here's last years picture when I had all the color of of a marshmallow...


Here's this year's version!

Wow. Hawk Daddy looks awesome, and I look even pastier! It's just not right! Here's TOG...

Check out the bells on Mini Hawk's gloves! And thanks Hawk Daddy, for the blue candy cane!

The second item today is an award that Snooty gave me that I just adore. It's called sharing the love. There is an original post to link back to that explains more about why the award was created and there are these guidelines for gifting it: Share this award with all those blogs out there that you love. All the people who make you smile. All those that make you laugh. All those that make your day. All those that leave uplifting comments on your blog.


Thank you Snooty, for thinking of me! I can do that!  So here's to the following:

Mental Pause Mama always make me laugh! And she does great videos!

Delusions of...everything has been laughing with me for years! It's a privilege to give her her first blog award!

Flea shared her cows and her imagination with me and I have the rockin' mug to prove it!

Meg is a for sure read each morning and I love her hiking ornaments! And her dog!

Tammy  makes me laugh. And laugh. And laugh!

Tracy inspires me photographically. And she makes me laugh!

Asthmamom inspires me... not only to be more thoughtful but to be a better writer. Seriously!

Go forth and spread the joy! I am going to be late for work!

Asthmagirl out!
