Awesome Giveaway

Oh my gravy!! I can't contain my excitement. I had a few extra minutes this morning, so I decided to check out a few of my favorite blogs that I haven't checked out for a while. I'm so glad I did. Erin at 5dollar dinners is doing an amazing $250 grocery giveaway to the grocery store of your choice. I am frantically doing everything I can to get all my entries in. I'm amazed that she can do this...course it's through the Canned Food Alliance, but I look at that and that amount is a whole month's worth of groceries for my family. Be sure to check it out since it's over at Noon EST Aug. 29, 2009.

Here's an amusing story that I heard at lunch today. My friend Laura joins us on Fridays and we do a Bible study and share lunch. I asked Laura if I had mentioned that my mom's chickens "The Bettys" are laying now. The Boy responded with "You know, Harrison gives the Bettys their eggs." Oh my...who on earth mentioned that the rooster gives the hens eggs? Thankfully it seems to be that the Boy's understanding is pretty basic. I guess I'm surprised at the knowledge of chicken reproduction my three-year old has.


  1. actually the rooster has nothing to do with the eggs, they're just a ovulation. Now baby chickens? the rooster has to be around for THAT to happen.

  2. Actually Paige,I did know that, but my parents have the rooster since fertilized eggs have less cholesterol than non-fertilized. I don't know what pete knows specificaly about chicken reproduction, but i thought the whole thing was cute.
