|With her Pop at about six months - wearing a dress that I wore as a baby|
|Music with Aunt Tibbie at around 15 months|
And getting a hat crocheted for her, which I will work on getting her this weekend. So without further ado, I give you, the Ages and Stages of Buttercup! (The give away stuff follows after that.)
|With Grandma Jo - around 20 months|
|Uh... around 2 years|
|Not long before Mr. Magoo was born. She still dresses herself most of the time.|
|Dancing. About 2.5 years|
|Almost 3 - she decided that this was THE only way to |
pose that was acceptable.
|Just after her 3rd birthday|
|Just before we moved from MD - with the girl she considered to be her best |
friend - Mary (who was 8 and humored her with kindness.)
The Give Away Stuff:
In honor of having such a wonderful family, all the many birthdays going on in our house this time of year, and how truly blessed I am, I am doing my first-ever give away when I reach my 40th follower. So if you are reading my posts, but never really signed on as a follower, please do. If you are signed on, would you encourage others to follow me as well - or if not, send me a message telling me what I can improve to make me worthy of following (be kind - it is Christmas, after all!)?
But here is what you will be given away, and ways to enter:
*No purchase is necessary to enter or to win*

The three questions:
On December 10, 2012, I will draw at least one, possibly two (if I reach 60 followers) names to win a customized goody box. The goody box will include items from Cocoa Nutty Goodies, a Blockbuster gift card worth $10, and some other items of Christmas cheer that I have not yet determined because I brainstormed all of this at 3 a.m. on a Saturday night. (Bear with me, I have never done a give-away before, remember??)
The "Gift" part that brings this into the 29 Gift Challenge:
Regardless (or should I annoy my mom and other language geeks out there by saying, "IR-regardless"... haha!) of whether or not I end this contest with 40 or 60 followers, I will send:
(I have to check the legalities on the local first responders part of this, but I'm pretty sure I can take them a plate of cookies and goodies! If I can't, I'll send two military care packages.)
