I've been meaning to show this off...

Meredith nominated me for this award a couple of days before Christmas! Wow! This is a pretty nice complement coming from a gal that manages to post daily, sometimes more often, and has 4 very young children. Thanks Meredith, I think YOU are fabulous!

One of the rules for this award is that I have to post 5 of my "fabulous addictions". Hmmmm. I don't really have an addictive personality! LOL. Some of you may dispute that.

  1. My computer. More specifically - surfing the Internet. I'm an information junkie. It's been very intense since Ralph was born and I needed to find out all the info I could about DS, ASD closure devices, pulmonary hypertension and much, much more!
  2. Hot baths on freezing cold nights.
  3. Cold cereal, any time of day.
  4. Really loud music. There are some songs you can only really appreciate when the volume is cranked.
  5. People (babies especially) with Down Syndrome. I can just sit and stare at Ralph - he's so beautiful to me. Praying for the children at helps me feed this addiction. I'm baffled that anyone would abort/abandon a child so special. I want to be part of the solution to this ongoing tragedy.

Now... I have to nominate 5 blogs for this award. This part is always much harder (how to I pick only 5?)! Plus my computer recently died and my extensive list of favorite blogs is history too:( Here are some of my new favorites!

Amy Her blogs are super cute to look at! I "met" her through Reece's Rainbow when her and her husband committed to adopt one of the little boys I had been praying for! They are heroes in my book.

Bringing Mary Home I spent much of my day on the day after Christmas reading this adoption blog. Very uplifting!

Leslie is a friend of a friend. Thanks to blogging, now we are friends, too! Small, small world!

Dr. Boucher Sometimes the content is way over my head! But, I love her sense of humor and I pick up some great ideas and information (remember my addiction?) here!

Oh gosh! It is late! I'm cheating and going with 4. Lame, I know.

Ok, so if any of those want to accept their award, here are the rules:
1. You have to pass it on to 5 other fabulous blogs in a post.
2. You have to list 5 of your fabulous addictions in the post.
3. You must copy and paste the rules and the instructions below in the post.

Instructions: On your post of receiving this award, make sure you include the person that gave you the award and link it back to them. When you post your five winners, make sure you link them as well. To add the award to your post, simply right-click, save image, then "add image" it in your post as a picture so your winners can save it as well. To add it to your sidebar, add the "picture" gadget. Also, don't forget to let your winners know they won an award from you by emailing them or leaving a comment on their blog.

You are so sweet to think of me - feels pretty fabulous to be acknowledged by you! I just copied the award with plans to quickly install it 'on the fridge door' on my site.

I'm gonna follow the lead of another Mom blogger, and decline passing-on the award. That does not lessen the value I place on receiving it from you.
Gratefully yours, Barbara

Hi Friend,

Thank you so much for giving this to me! I'll need to try to figure out how to copy it. (I'm soooo computer challenged!)

I am thankful that Anita introduced us! I've enjoyed getting to know you.
