I received these two awards from Alesha over at The Jacobsen Family. Thanks Alesha! I enjoy chatting with her on twitter and reading her blog... if you haven't read her blog, you should... It's very well organized. (yes, I love blogs that are organized and neat, which Alesha's is definitely!)

I'm late with posting this, but we finally got a keyboard for one of the computers late last night and I can use the internet without having to go to the library!

The rules are:

- Put the logo on your blog or within your post.

- Nominate at least 10 blogs with great attitude or gratitude. (12 blogs for the Sunshine Award)

- Link the nominees within your post.

- Let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blog.

- Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award.

I get to spread the love, so here are my nominees :*)

Monkeys Mama @ Monkey Tales

~Noelle @ Jumpin-Beans

Annie @ Mama Dweeb

Natalie @ The Adventures of Paul & Natalie

Owen's Mom @ Adventures in all things food

Little Miss Emmy Lou @ Mama Days

It isn't 10 or 12. But these are some of my favorite bloggers! I wanted to give it to fancygrlnancy @ Arizona Mama, but Alesha already gave it to her!


I was also given the Beautiful Blogger Award from Noelle who blogs over at Jumpin-Bean! She is the mother of a cute little boy and she lives in Georgia, just like me! Thanks Noelle for the award and thinking of me!

Here are the rules:

1. Thank the person who nominated you for this award and insert a link to their blog.

2. Pass on the award to about 15 other bloggers who you recently discovered and think are great!

3. Contact the other bloggers and let them know they have been chosen for this award.

4. Say 7 things about yourself.

Let's see... seven things about me...

1. I am the proud sister of a little boy who has Down syndrome and just finished chemotherapy for leukemia.

2. This is actually a two-person blog! My mom and I enter giveaways. If you and I are chatting on twitter, you're probably talking to me. Usually Momma and I will sit with the laptop (or use to... before the computer crashed and the power cords died) and take turns tweeting.

3. I live with my family on our homestead in Georgia. I have five siblings, three sisters and two brothers. We have chickens, pigs, and turkeys on our farm. Besides the six cats and three dogs, of course :*) and we homeschool!

4. I love reading books - lots of books! History books, fiction, non-fiction... and I love watching movies, especially Murder She Wrote and Charlie Chan films... We also watch a lot of old world war II movies and then we get books about the movie we just watched from the library!

5. I enjoy cooking. (though I didn't say I enjoyed cleaning up :*)) We have a few people in my family who have different foods they can't eat. So, I'm learning to adapt our family favorites into food everyone can eat.

6. On Monday mornings, there is always a big pile of laundry, in the rooms, waiting to go to the laundry room. I may or may not forget to bring it in till late in the afternoon.

7. I don't like vacations! Primarily because we always get sick during them. The only 'vacation' I remember that we didn't get sick, was when we went to a camp for families of children with cancer.

Now, for the fifteen bloggers, that I get to pass the award too!

Thank you so much!!! I love how the awards look so pretty on your blog. ;)

Yikes. I think my biggest fear is my computer finally giving up the ghost. It is on its last leg and everyday I boot up I have to hold my breath! :)
