Pay it Foward!

I have seen several blogs doing this and I thought it was a great idea! I entered one at Kendra's Blog and one of the rules was you had to have your own Pay It Forward thingy. I searched a little bit and found the original picture and information:

Pay it forward 2011: I promise to send something 

handmade to the first 3 people who leave a comment here.

 To be eligible, you must also post this in your blog,

 offering the same thing to 3 other people. 

The rules are that it must be handmade by you and it

 must be sent to your 3 people *sometime* in 2011.
I suggest if you are playing along you give yourself an

 approximate *due by* date so the people that signed up

 aren't waiting terribly long.

Ready, set, GO!
So what I am giving to the first 3 people who comment on this is post get one of these recipes mailed to them:
Chocolate Chip Cake
Blue Ribbon Banana Bread
Cheese Potato Soup

My Rules:
1.You must live in the USA to enter.
2. You must leave your e-mail address to I can e-mail you. 

Have fun,

Blog Shout Out and Iceskating!

For my new header I used:

Anyway that's enough of that, lets get on with the post.

I follow allot of blogs, 45 to be exact. So I thought I would "shout out" the names of a few of my favorite blogs. They are in no particular order.
Animal Central is a fun blog that I discovered. Izzy tells about her 3 rabbits, Hedgehog, and Chinchilla. She also tells facts about animals! I am really glad I stumbled upon Animal Central!
Becca is my BFF and we get together frequently. She mostly posts about what is happening in her life and occasionally will post about a giveaway she has entered. 

Hannah does a great job designing blog backgrounds for people! She does charge a small fee($5-10) if you want the whole design. But you can also get a small package for free!

Kendra's blog is really neat! She just moved back to the states from Egypt where she and the rest of her family were missionaries! I really enjoy reading her blog and seeing the pictures she posts.

I have so many other blogs that I would love to post about! But I will save those for another post. :)

I recently learned how to ice-skate! I had been ice-skating before this but only for short periods time and never really learning how to. Well this fall our youth group went ice-skating at a local ice rink. It was there I really learned how to ice-skate. I really, really enjoyed it! Well you can imagine how excited I was when we found out there was an outdoor ice-rink that we could walk to! I bought ice-skates and then took them to the indoor ice-rink and had them sharpened! Here are some pictures of them(I bought them used):
Yesterday Rebecca, Megann, Nathan, and I went ice-skating together! It was a ton of fun! Sorry for the long post,

Our Snow Fort!

We are building a snow fort! It isn't finished yet so I haven't taken any photos yet. Some of the walls are three feet thick! Our neighbor came over and helped us build a tunnel to crawl through to get in. Well I will hopefully post pictures soon. :-)

I've Failed...

to post for a long time. I don't know why but every time I have thought about posting I could never find anything to say. So I had a great New Year Celebration. :) I stayed up all night! Lol. It was a youth group activity. We went to a two story laser tag place and played till 1:30am! Then we came back to the church and played Wii and some board games. It was allot of fun! I also got and iPod shuffle!
It is pink. I really, really like it! I also taught Tucker sit stay, down, down stay, up(really cute!), and how to play hide and seek. :) Happy very late New Year!
