Lion Silly Sac

I purchased this Silly Sac through eBay. Isn't it adorable?!? As you can tell from the photo, Katie loves her Lion bag. These pictures were taken right after she got up from her nap, so she looks a little rough. As soon as she saw it, she wanted to try it on. I didn't know when the next time I would have a photo op, so I thought this would be the best time. She has been on a big "The Lion King" movie kick. All weekend and yesterday, we've watched "The Lion King." Of course, right after that movie she wanted to watch "Madagascar" and "The Wizard of Oz." I can't figure out the connection between her and lions. I've thought a few times, maybe we should throw her a Lion Birthday Party. I even found a recipe and decorating tips in order to make a Lion Cake from Martha Stewart's website. Check it out: http://www.marthastewart.com/portal/site/mslo/menuitem.fc77a0dbc44dd1611e3bf410b5900aa0/?vgnextoid=d91243e303a0f010VgnVCM1000003d370a0aRCRD&autonomy_kw=lion%20cake&rsc=ns2006_m2 . I wished I had the time and patience to make this cake for Katie. I've thought about taking it to Wal-Mart and see if they could make it, but I still like the cupcake idea.

Doug and I weighed her last night because we were afraid she had lost weight. She weighs a little over 22 lbs., which was a lot better than what we first thought. Last month, she weighed a little over 21 lbs., so I guess she is still on the right track. She just worries me at times when she doesn't want to eat. Don't forget she has a picky appetite to begin with.

I've entered another photo through ClubMom.com. It will be up for vote tomorrow. Late last night, I found another photo contest link The CuteKid.com. What struck my interest was the winner could have a chance to win a $25,000 college tuition for your child. I didn't notice any strings until after I uploaded 4 photos of Katie. Right before you click on the button that says "Upload for Contest," something caught my eye. In fine print, you have to pay $19.95 to enter in the contest. I knew it was too good to be true. Here's the link, if you are still interested: http://www.thecutekid.com/. Yeah, it doesn't say anything about a cost to enter into the contest, but it will as soon as you upload your photos.

Maryann came by this evening for me to make her copies of Ryan's graduation picture. She wanted several wallets to mail to extended relatives. We had a good visit with her and Katie loved Aunt Maryann's earrings (dangling earrings) and shoes. She had to try on Maryann's shoes before she left. Maryann got an idea tonight as what to get Katie for her birthday - dress up stuff.

Poem of the Day

One little sin, what harm can it do?Give it free reign and soon there are two.Then sinful deeds and habits ensue—Guard well your thoughts, lest they control you. — DJD

Take care and God Bless You!

Katie's hair is getting so long!!! I like the Lion Cake. If you still like the cupcake idea, why don't you do individual cupcakes like the lion instead of one big cake? I think that would be cute, too! I'm sure Wal-mart could do it for you. The design didn't look that hard.
