    Faye, thank you so much for the kind words...

    baseball2hockey - Congratulations on your first grandbaby!! I am so excited for you and she is so lucky that you will be her grandma! How wonderful that they are close by and you can help take care of her. I am forever grateful that my mom was able to help when the girls were young. And what a great trip home this summer! I look forward to hearing about it at coupon/cookie swap in Dec. Bring pictures of Sophie! Have a great baby shower. I did miss you (and your entries) at the fair last week. Can't what see what you come up with next year! :-)

    Yes, they live in Durham just like us, about 10-15 mins away. And she even asked me to help her babysit when she goes back to work. Of course I will babysit. I have been babysitting for a family for the last 3 years and the little girl is just about old enough to go to school, so they wouldn't need me for much longer anyway. But babysitting my own granddaughter will be lots of joyful times ahead.

    Hi Faye,
    I have been following the blog constantly, just not posting anything. But thank you and everyone else for all the great deals and posts.
    Me and my family are doing very well. I had been to germany to visit my brothers and family for a month back in July and August and had the best time ever. It has been 10 years since I went back. My daughter and her hubby currently are getting ready to welcome their first child within the next month. My first grandchild!!! I am all excited to meet little Sophie very soon.
    So, that kind of answers what's been going on lately. Sunday is the Baby shower and I used all sorts of great deals to throw her a wonderful party with friends and family.
    You also may have missed me not stopping by at the State Fair this year. Because of all the preparations for the shower and other things I never did come up with any new recipes for the food competitions at the fair. Next year again. But I AM looking forward to attending the cookie swap though.

    Nanee Lion - TOODELISHTOSHARE is the KFR code. Not BASEBALL2HOCKEY - that is the user name who supplied the code. I thought the same thing at first and then realized this was a username. :)

    BASEBALL2HOCKEY is only 15 characters which is too short. What am I missing?
