Blog Award - Gorgeous Blogger Award!

I love getting blog awards, they are just like presents to me!  Thanks so much to Jennifer thanks for thinking of me!  I wasn't prepared for all this, I don't have a speech prepared or anything!

The Rules

Accept and thank the person who gave it to you!

List 10 things about yourself

List 5 additional things you DON'T like
Then pick five people to give this lovely award to!

10 Things About Me:

1. I LOVE Jesus and everything He has done for me . . . it is immeasurable! 

2. I am a bowler. . . (*someone whispers* nerd. ) I had a 161 average last season and bowled my first 200 in a tournament at the AR Women's State Tournament in Hot Springs. Woo hoo.  213!!
3.  I have great-grandchildren around the same age as some of my grand-children.
4.  I don't do giveaways, but I just realized last week, my blog kinda looks like a big giveaway blog, what with all the presents and whatnot. . . LOL!  I just don't have that kinda time.  I love them, I don't win, but I love them.
5.  Santa is the best husband in the world!  I love him past heaven!  Too many times we girls put a lot of rules and restrictions on our spouses, when they will love us a lot more without all that.
6.  I am a horrible photographer, but I love to edit photographs.  So it works out, what I lack in photography ability I make up for in editing skills.
7.  I work for Santa every day, I do bookkeeping and software documentation.  I work, play and relax in front of a computer, so blogging is a great for me.
8.  I had my first child in Germany at 19 years old, with only my husband and German speaking nurses to help me.  And I lived right through it. . . so you can too!
9.  I love everybody . . . if you like me  . . .FAB!!  If you don't, I'm over it!
10. Santa and I are coming up to the finish line of getting all our kids graduated from high school.  Reese's will be a senior next year.  So yeah, we have heard the final lap called, and then I don't know what will be next.  After raising EIGHT kids, Santa is ready for some kid-free time!

5 Things I Don't Like:

1. liver . . . definitely not a fan (even though I was forced to eat it as a child)
2. women who hate their husbands in public (Jon and Kate example)
3. negativity (is that really necessary?)
4. back aches (ouch and all other symptoms of getting older)
5. ALLIGATORS!! (especially ones found 1 mile from my house . . . I don't live in Florida, you know?)

Although there are many that I visit who deserve this award, I must narrow it down to 5, so here goes!

I have to think about who I want to pass this award along to. . . 

1.  Crystal 
2.  O Mom 
3.  Meredith 
4.  Lori 
5.  Alicia
