It's Sarah's 3rd Birthday!!!! Plus, an Update on Daniel and BLOG CANDY!!!

Sarah turns THREE today!!! She doesn't know it though, because we're waiting to celebrate when my in-laws get here. We're going to do something fun today as a family, but we don't want her to be disappointed that today she doesn't get a cake and some presents. :) She's such a stinker, and I can't believe she's already three!!! Now we just have to get her potty trained. She has to believe that the potty isn't just for her sister though, I think, for that to happen. Auggh!!! This pic is her telling us how old she's going to be on her birthday. I think she thinks she gets to skip 3 and turn 4 like her sister :)

Here's a couple of pictures of little Daniel. In the 2nd he's sporting a new outfit from his Nana. Those are some high ridin' pants!!! LOL He's doing much better now, at least at night. Once we can get him to sleep he pretty much sleeps all night except for when I wake him up to feed him. I know - I should just let him sleep, but I don't like feeling like I'm going to pop from not feeding him, even if it means an hour more of sleep :) He's still pretty fussy all day long, and the medicine has helped a bit, but I think his reflux is just something we're going to have to endure for a while and we hope he grows out of it like his sister Sarah did.

For the blog candy - I would like to hear something simple. Your favorite SU! color combination. If you're not familiar with SU! colors, you can click on the link to the right to the SU! Website (under Sites of Interest) and click on the link to the online catalog and on pages 165-167 are all of the SU! colors.

What will you win you're asking????? Well, you will win, shipped direct to you (sorry - this is another US resident contest only - remember, I had a bunch of trouble shipping to Canada last time, I'm truly sorry) from me, ANYTHING out of the current SU! Idea Book and Catalog or Mini Catalog that is $20.95 or less. I will pay the additional tax and shipping on the item/s. Sound good?

This contest is going to be open until Tuesday, September 4th at 10:00 a.m. at which time I'll use random.org to pick a random winner. PLEASE, only one comment per person and LEAVE YOUR NAME so that I know who to give the candy to. Thanks, and GOOD LUCK!!!
