Giveaway Addict.

So I've been really into giveaways lately. That seems to be what I do in my free time now. Either look for recipies or free stuff. I take part in every free giveaway I can think of. I will follow endless amouts of people on twitter, become the fan of who knows howmany groups/organizations on Facebook all for giveaways on blogs. I'm signed of for I don't know how many mailing lists for free stuff. I don't know how far is to far before you can say you're addicted to getting free stuff but I think I may have hit that point. And so, in an attempt to win something else, I am going to blog about these cool, economy friendly, stainless steal water bottles by EarthLust. They're actually pretty neat. My grandma bought one a few weeks ago and was showing it to me. She said they keep your water really cold and they don't leak or anything and they're not made of plastic so they're not leaking cancer into your water. I really wanted to get one then but really who has $20 to spend on a water bottle? I know I don't. So this morning when I woke up, after helping Casey get ready for work, feeding Madelynn, changing her, and putting her back to sleep, I got on the computer and found THIS giveaway on a blog that I follow. I'm super excited. I have done everything I can to win the water bottle. I've never actually won anything from all of my giveaways. I don't even know why I still do them. But here I am again. Entering my heart away in yet another giveaway.

Summer Fun!

Friday Madelynn had quite the busy day.
In the morning we went to my Grandma's house to spend sometime with my Grandparents while Casey slept(he stayed up until 4:30am the night before). After that we came home and Madelynn took a nap. While she was taking a nap I blew up and filled the baby pool that Amy let me borrow. When Madelynn woke up I got her into her swimsuit(that looks like it's from the 80s) and we went to play in the pool. She had lots of fun playing with her duckies and ball. She doesn't have many toys for the pool so we need to fix that. At one point she decided that the side of the pool was cooler than her toys and tried to eat it. But everytime she tried to get it she would slip. Once she fell into the water face first and she sat back up crying. She really doesn't like any kind of water on her face. She barely likes me washing her face off with a washcloth. But after she figured out that it wasn't a good idea to play with the side of the pool she had lots of fun.

Then that night Union had their fireworks. We went and sat at Clark-Vitt park with my dad and my friend Heather and her mom and brothers. Madelynn loved the fireworks. She even tried to talk to them. It was so cute.

She had such a full day Friday that she slept untill 9:45am this morning and then took a 2 hour nap at 11:30. Which if you don't know Madelynn that is unusual as her naps only last 45min to an hour and if I'm lucky an hour and a half. But not to worry. She went back to her short naps. Taking a 20min one at 3:30 and then a 30min one at 6.

Then tonight we went over to Cory and Amy's for dinner and games, which ended up being poker. And Madelynn and Rylin got to have a mini-sleepover. Though poor Ry may not have even known Madelynn was in her room cause Madelynn wouldn't go to sleep untill 9 and even then she cried for half an hour. But every time I went in there Ry seemed like she was out. Though she may have been faking it cause I was in the room. Who knows. We'll see what time Madelynn wakes up and see how good she does for naps tomorrow. I'm excited for tomorrow night. We get to have Family night at church. I just love Family Night.
