So incredibly honored!

My actions may not show it since I am so terribly behind in posting my awards and passing them along to the blogs that I absolutely love to read on a daily basis but I promise you all that I am so incredibly grateful and honored that you all have thought of me. This will be a long post since I have several awards to post and catch up on so bear with me here :)

bvnv nvzaavvaannnna annnnavaaaaaaaa v (That's from Caleb..he says Hello!) You should all feel very special as he's a VIP.

I received The Christmas Spirit Award from Alicia over at More Than Words. Thanks Alicia! If you haven't checked out her blog yet well then you better head on over there. She has got a beautiful family and I just love to read her posts everyday.

There are a few rules that go along with this award. They are:

*You must be a true Christmas lover to receive this award.
*The person to whom you give the award must also be in love with Christmas.
*You must link back to the person who gave you the award.
*You must list 5 things that you love about Christmas. If you can't limit it to 5 things, then keep going till you run out of space! :o)
*Pass the award along to as many people as you like. That can be 1 or 45; it's up to you. But, you must pass it on to at least one person in order to keep the Christmas cheer going!
*Let your recipients know that you have tagged them by leaving them a comment on their blog.

5 Things that I Love about Christmas:

1-I live for the excitement in my children's eyes. They just light up this time of year.
2-Everyone seems to be alittle happier than they are the rest of the year. I just love how everyone seems to catch the Christmas spirit.
3-I love when my parents come over first thing Christmas morning and spend the entire day with us. I look forward to this day all year long!
4-I love baking Christmas cookies and candies.
5-I love going around and looking at all the houses decorated and the beautiful lights.

I'm going to cheat alittle on this one because I have seen alot of people that have this one. So for those of you that follow me and don't have this award then it's yours! I know that's kinda lazy and when others say that to me I never take it but really it's all for you guys..I just don't want to mess up and give it to people that already have it. Everyone should join in on the Christmas season!

This next award I got from Stacey over at McCrakensx4. Thanks Stacey!!! I am so honored that you thought of me :) And since I absolutely adore reading but don't get the chance to do it much right now this is even more fun. The rules are to go to the book closest to you and turn to page 56 then go to line 5 and type that line and the following 2 or 3. Then tag 5 people. Now I'm not in my room or near where I read so this is kinda funny. The closest book to me right now is Lucas' library book. It's called Mostly Ghostly by R.L. here goes :)

" Tara bonked me on the head with her fist. "Don't call him that." "You have a crush on Max," I said. "It's obvious." She bonked me again, a little harder. "Ow." Year, sure, I'm a ghost. But it still hurts to be bonked on the head."

So I am sure it is supposed to be a book you are reading but hey I have to play by the rules,right?

Now, I tag:

* Everyday Mom Designs
* The Chappell Family Blog * Amanda at The Family News
* Corrine at 4 Kids,no dog and living the American Dream
* Lori at Teacher turned Mommy

I got this one from Stacey at McCrakensx4 and Alicia at Two B's and Me. Thanks guys!!! You are great and I am so honored that you consider me a friend! When I originally started blogging I did it to keep family and friends up to date with the kids and everything that was going on. As many of you have done and also experienced they really don't ever comment :) so I was amazed when people I had never met started reaching out and I developed the most amazing network of friends in what I called bloggyland. I am so thankful for you all!!!

This award represents this:"These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find, and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement.
