A MILESTONE AND LOTS OF PRIZES

Just had to add this PICTURE...Jack is sick and had to have some blood work done to rule out streph. Would you want to be the person that had to prick this finger? I think he is a TAD MAD!
Monday...
I looked at my dashboard this morning thinking I was getting ready to write a post about date night with Jack (AKA Woody) and realized that on my two blogs I had 275 posts and over 1150 followers. I know to many of you that is not a lot, but to this girl that thought one post would be the end, it seems like a MILLION. I thought about waiting until I reached the 300th post, but I will be so busy getting ready for the tree season, that I decided I would show my thanks NOW to all of you who have befriended me in the blog world. So on both blogs for the next few days I think we NEED to CELEBRATE..as in give a FEW THINGS AWAY. I am already drawing for a copy of IN A HEARTBEAT! I am adding to that some more prizes on EACH BLOG...so you will have to check both out. This post will stay up all week (because I have to start working on getting Christmas out of storage and staying away from the computer so much)! On SUNDAY NIGHT, PARKER will draw for all the prizes....So you have two chances to win Leigh Ann and Sean's book In A HEARTBEAT! (Are you getting that I LOVE this book? I think this is the 8th copy I have given away.) I love Robin McGraw,so I am including her book, What's Age Got To Do With It? . Then there are two new cookbooks, 500 SALADS and The Gooseberry Patch CHURCH SUPPERS COOKBOOK. It only takes a comment...and you can comment on both blogs...Just a little token to say thanks for reading ME.

NOW, on to my DATE last night with WOODY. It was so much fun that I think we will do it again. I am hoping he will ask me out again. We mostly played Woody, Buzz, Jessy, you get the picture. Jack does all the talking and the only RULE is I AM NOT TO TOUCH WOODY.
WOODY BELONGS to JACK.




WOODY had to sit in TIME OUT several times and I have no idea what he did wrong. One time I think he lost his hat. One time his head turned to the back and JACK HATES that. And we did go TO INFINITY and EOND (that's beyond, you say it with a long E and you say it really loud) about 100 times! He did come to me about 11 last night and say, "MAMMY (still working in the GR)
I WITE" I ask where and he opened his little fist and he had autographed his hand with a blue marker. I asked where the marker was and he went straight to the ottoman, got on his knees and pulled it out from under it. He had hidden his pen for later use. A BOY never knows when he will need to sign something.
Though this is not a great picture from Amanda's phone, this was DATE NIGHT for JACK's Mom and DAD. I think they LIKE each other.

I love the pics and date night. He is so cute. I am patiently waiting for when Drex gets old enough to interact with us. I love how I can say something and he turns his head to find me...melts my heart every time!

Church cookbooks are my favorite, there is always such good food in them.

You date with Jack looked wonderful. What a cutie.

Sunny Sue said...

Went to see Toy Story 3 with the whole family and the father-in-law at the famous Select Theater. We definitely made a memory. Hearing about Jack putting Woody in time-out just cracked me up! I probably would have gotten in trouble for laughing if I was playing with him. :-)

Nocona said...

Thank you for stopping by my blog with your encouraging words. What a cute blog and I would love any of those books. So how do I get so many followers without giving in to playing some of the games on here that seem to get complaining and negative? Love your Woody pictures. My little boy was into Woddy when he was little. The newest movie made me cry to hard. My little one is 8 now and soon he will be that little boy that is going off to college. sigh

Goodness. I kept wondering who Woody was. Once I saw him I knew, but until then......
The granddaughters aren't in to that kind of thing. We're doing the silly band thing now.
Have a super great Friday. And congratulations on the success of your blog. It's great.

COUNTRY MOM said...

Joan said...

Hi, Teresa~~
I just discovered your blog and think it's great! I am bookmarking it and will come back often to get to know you better.
I'm a relatively new grammy myself--my grandson just turned 2, and he lives across the country from me, so I don't get to see him as much as I'd like to.
Please enter me in your give-away--all of the books sound like things I'd like to read. And thanks for doing it!

Teresa @ ♥ TOO MANY HEARTBEATS ♥ said...

WOW, you are one hot and popular Grammy and Jack is just too stinkin' cute! What are we gonna do with the two of you??? LOL!!

As for this question...Would you want to be the person that had to prick this finger? I WAS that person for many years and it is a very hard position to be in. It makes your heart hurt for kids to come in and start screaming at the door, or at the site of you, because they remember the last time they were at your office and YOU inflicted pain on them. :*( *sigh* Oh well, lollipops and stickers always seem to fix them right up! :0)

I am already the proud recipient of one of your book give-aways, so please don't add me onto the list because I commented.
