Question and Answer

"BTW, love your watermark on your photos. Is it new or have I just been rather unobservant??"

Nope it's new! And it's pretty new, so you haven't been THAT unobservant. I just decided one day I needed a new one. One that is there, but less distracting. So that's what I've got for now.

"Question: Could you pass on some book titles that are good for getting toddlers to eat healthy and ideas for them? I think you mentioned a long time ago about some excellent books and I'd love to know what they are! Maybe put them on my Christmas wish list! Thanks Rhonda."

Books about feeding Kids that I just love love love.
1. First Meals by Annabella Karmel. This was my first book about feeding kids and I think it is an essential one. It starts from breastfeeding and goes all the way until kids are 5. (And it has some cute cute cute food.)
2. More First Meals by Annabella Karmel. I just got this one from the library and it is really good. It's exactly what it says, more good meals for kids. :)
3.Super Foods for Kids by Straten Van. I really like this one too. It talks a lot more about the science of food and why there are good for kids. I borrowed this one from my friend Kathleen back in Nova Scotia and really liked it. I spotted it at Homesense in their book section for $5. It was a steal! And it has the best minestrone recipe there is!

"Question: My prayer cards aren't printing very good. Help me"
You need to select print to size when you go to print it. It's called something along those lines, fit to page, or just pick 95% and it should fit for sure. (The prayer cards are here.)

"Question: How do you find such great books, and the time to read them?!"

Breastfeeding. That's when I read most of the time. And with Eli around I do that a lot.

"Question: I love that paper on the cover - who makes it?!"
The patterned paper on the cover of my Calaway mini album is from the Scraptivity November 2008 kit. And it is made by We R Memory Keepers, the Nonsense line.

"Question: very fun! How many scrapbooks do you have? I bet lots! You need a cricut! If you don't have one already. I don't even scrapbook and I want one!"
No, I don't have a cricut, but I'd LOVE one. It's one my list of SB tools I want. Along with the Bind-it-all and the Big Bite Crop-a-dile. One day maybe.
As for Scrapbooks, I have 1 6x6 album that is our dating, a set of K&Company 8x8 linen Albums, lots of mini albums that are in a basket on my piano, and then probably 20 full 12x12 albums (at least) maybe more. And I have enough pages finished and stacked to fill 3-4 more. Then a few 8.5x11 albums. Yes, I have a lot of albums. Regan jokes that I need a room just for those. :)

"Question: What happened at Canadian Tire?!"
Last week I posted about my trip to Canadian Tire. I went there are 10:30am with just Eli to have a "load test" done on my battery to see if it was toast. My dad told me the exact thing to say so I would look like I knew what I was talking about. They lost my keys twice, put on new tires (which I didn't order and I had brand new ones on their anyways, they told me I could keep the new ones - but I wanted MINE since I have a 5 year warranty on them), argued with me about it being my van or not (you'd think I would know what my own van would look like) and then finally hooked it up did the test and then had to put in a new battery. 5 hours later. Good thing I have a good baby.

"Question: Did you make the Halloween cake pops? We want pics! :)"

I did make Cake pops, they were totally not that cute. So I didn't take a picture. But they did taste good. I think I need a LOT more practice before I get good at them. And an eatable marker. Trying to make faces on small cake pops with melted chocolate was.... hard!!!

There are more q&a's tomorrow!!

What?! They have such idiots at Canadian Tire! Who has time to spend five hours there???? That is a crazy story. Maybe if they had their Christmas stuff out, I wouldn't mind being there too much.....but still, five hours is waaaaaay too long.

Thanks so much for the toddler book titles! I really appreciate it. I'm definitely adding them to my wish list and hope to get at least one. :)

Sorry to hear about the Canadian Tire experience. I would have gone crazy!

Micheals had edible markers for Halloween, a pack of one orange and one black. I didn't get them, but I wish I had. Maybe they still have them.

Thanks Rhonda! I need to write down those book recommendations. Sadie has suddenly become quite picky....
