Starting back to school and announcing my giveaway winner!

Garrett started back to school this past Friday. He is a big 3rd grader now! Makes me wanna cry because he is growing up so fast. No more kisses and hugs for mama at school...he informed me of that yesterday. He is a big boy, now.

He loves his new classroom and his new teacher. He is such a sweet boy. He made principle scholar all last year. He loves math and he loves to read.

This is his 'forced' smile. I said something to him about the way he smiles...he doesn't want to show his teeth because of the space between his front two. He wants braces. When did boys get so vain? This is the smile that he gave me! LOL

My sweet little man. I am so proud of you.
I got Garrett to do the drawing tonight for my 1st giveaway. I wanted to take pictures, but my batteries were dead in my camera and I didn't have any extra ones. I didn't want to wait another day because I was suppose to do this Friday night and didn't. It has just been so busy! I've been on vacation and I start back to work tomorrow.

The winning name is... Rebecca at 'Sweet Willow Cottage'. (Captured by love) She has the sweetest blog. Congratulations Rebecca! Just email me your address and I will ship it out to you!

Congratulations Rebecca!! I know that my steve & I have sooooo much work ahead of us but bit by bit we'll her done. Our next large project will be putting a fence in on the front of the property for the dogs to run and have fun. That will be quite the chore. Inside we'll be taking down all the old sheetrock that was put in incorrectly and then insulate and new rock. Lots to do!

He is so cute. I am ready for mine to head back, but wish I had a month off after they went back.

He is growing up so fast! He is a good looking young man. He was so sweet to you this morning!!
Take care.
My word verification today was "prank"....wonder what prank we can play on some innocent person?
