The Host....

Last night... uhm... I mean this morning (at 12:30am) I finished The Host by Stephenie Meyer. WOW!! It was good. I can easily see it as a movie in the future. How does she do it??

I originally didn't plan on reading The Host, but my oldest daughter wanted to read it and I usually try to know what she (or any of my children are) is reading/watching/listening to. It's a great Sci-Fi read... without going overboard. I really like (or at least used to like) Sci-Fi. I think I got tired of how far it went sometimes though. This was a really good story of humanity and relationships with enough drama and mystery to keep it interesting. In the end, I felt hopeful for the aliens and happy for the humans.

Little People...

I just love Little People! They are exactly the type of toy I would have played with as a child. I remeber playing with Weebles... ya know... "Weebles wobble, but they don't fall down." Yes, I even had the treehouse. I think they have come out with some "newer" Weebles, but this is what my Weebles looked like:

When my older children were younger they had some of the different Little People sets. They had the farm, the Garage, the Town and the Circus at different times. When the youngest boy outgrew them, we gave them all away. Then came Abigail!! We started buying her the Little People sets and having families buy her sets and she now has a Little People Community!!

A Day Late....

I am so sorry that I am a day late in drawing the winner for the Chantel Hobbs bookset. I was so sick yesterday, that I totally spaced it.

And the winner is:

Kimm!! Just so you all will know, I put the names in a bowl and let my 2 yo daughter pull out the winner. Very unbiased, I promise!! :-)

Anyhow, I'll contact Kimm and let her know that I'll be getting these books out to her soon.

Thanks for participating... and keep watching, 'cause there may be more drawings!!
