Now on to the winner. I've used Random.org to get the winning number. Who knew how long it would take to enter 201 numbers. You may not be interested in that...you probably want to know who the lucky winner is. I do hope that you all know that I wanted every one of you to win. You were all so kind in all of your comments. Gee, there I go again. Rambling on and not giving you the winner.
Number 196 won! It's Stacey from JameeForever. I'll email her and also comment on her blog that she won. I also took the next two numbers and they will win something special. The numbers were 34 which is Teresa (I'll email her as she doesn't have a blog) and number 114 which is Sincerely Anna (I'll email her and also leave a comment on her blog). Three wonderful winners. I'll put a picture up on here later for the two runners up as I haven't had time to take them yet.
Thanks to everyone that participated. I had a great time and can't wait to do it again. Who knows...maybe I'll do this more often. :)
Now I'm off to visit every one of your sites. Maybe not all in one day but I will visit. I would love to have you all come back and visit me sometime.
I am late in starting this giveaway but couldn't resist. I am going to be giving away some AVON merchandise. If you are interested here is a link to the most current catalog: AVON or this one AVON. You can also go to my website!
It's easy to enter! All you have to do is leave me a comment. You don't have to be a blogger as long as you leave me an email address to contact you in case you are the winner. You will have until Friday, July 27, 7:00pm CST, to enter. Then I will collect all the entries, write down the comment numbers and then have the drawing.
What will I win you ask? Here are some pictures.
A lovely necklace and earring set. I will also throw in a $10 off coupon for your first order!

First and foremost...check out my giveaway by going here!!!!!
Now on to the feast....
Appetizer: Describe a toy you remember from your childhood.
Lite Brite. Loved it and now my son has mine. :) Now just to find some of the papers that go with it.
Soup: On a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 being highest) how observant are you?
I would consider myself around an 8 or a 9.
Salad: Where would you rather be at this very moment?
At the ocean along with a day spa. Now that would be nice.
Main Course: When was the last time you learned something new?
The only thing that is coming to my mind right now is learning how to knit two years ago when my son gave me the "Teach Yourself To Knit" kit for Christmas.
Or it would be putting a bike chain on Sam's bike along with tightening the tires so that the chain doesn't slip that much.
Dessert: Fill in the blank: I have ____________ but I haven’t ____________.
I have the urge to have some sushi but I haven't the money or the time right now since it is 11:00 p.m. Maybe sometime soon. :)

Some of the team took it hard including Sam. He came up to me (I was the dugout Mom so I was right there) with tears in his eyes telling me that he was sad because they lost and that they wouldn't be able to play the championship game. They were a great team as they went back out and congratulated the other team on a game well played.
I am so proud of not only my son but the whole team. They played their hearts out and had fun doing it.
This season was Sam's first time at machine pitch baseball. He got hurt a couple of times including last night when he slid into home plate. By the end of this season he learned how to hit well and to field balls. He is a great player and will learn more as he continues to play the game of baseball.
What's next? Soccer season. This so far this his favorite sport and he can't wait to get started.

I thought of adding books that I have previously read but it has been quite awhile since I've seriously read a book. So I opted out of listing those at this time.
Sam has a playoff baseball game this evening. They came in first place for the season. He will either play the 4th or 5th place team this evening. Keep your fingers crossed and say a little prayer for his team. In his last game he hit a triple. My parents were down here to see that game. I'll add more pictures and tell about their visit later. Here is a picture of him hitting his triple!
Playing third base and ready to make the play.
Going for the ball.
I'm off now to put Sam's baseball uniform that I forgot to wash until now into the dryer. Remember that you can enlarge the pictures by clicking on them.

It would actually depend on the sport. For football (NFL) I would give it a 10. For baseball I would give it a 9.
Soup: If you could completely memorize any one work of fiction, which one would you pick?
Only because I can't wait to read it I guess the one on my mind right now would be the Harry Potter books.
Salad: What is your favorite breakfast food?
Gee...just to name one would be hard. I love breakfast so I'll have to name more than just one: Pancakes, eggs, waffles, french toast, breads, muffins, fresh fruit.
Main Course: Name something fun you can do for less than $10.00.
If you don't count the cost of gas then I can do quite a bit with $10. This summer alone I have done the following with Sam for $10 or less. Blueberry picking, toured the National Weather Station, gone to the lake, free movies with snacks, American Rose Society Gardens, Chimp Haven, and SciPort Discovery Center just to name a few.
Dessert: How long does it usually take you to fall asleep?
Depends on the night and if hubby is home or not. When hubby is home it can take anywhere from 10 minutes to 1 hour. When he is away it takes me way to long to fall asleep. Sometimes I don't fall asleep until after 1 a.m.

First day in Dallas it was raining so we went to an arcade and played around. Second day we went back to the arcade to do the batting cages and go carts. Then it was off to meet one of Andy's old friends and his family for dinner, dessert and just some good ole fun. Third day, which was his actual "Gotcha Day" was spent lounging around at their pool with pizza and a movie later on.
Here are some pictures of Sam having a great time!
Soup: Who is someone you consider as a great role model?
Probably my parents. I just hope I'm just as good to my own son as they were to me.

Soup: Who was the last person you hugged.
Salad: What do you like to order from your favorite fast food place?
Main Course: What time of day do you usually feel most energized?
Dessert: Using the letters in your first name, write a sentence.

Before going to the lake he had quite a bit of fun bouncing around in the big bouncy that the church had out there for the kids.
Now off to the lake! He found a muscle shell that he was so proud of. You can see it in his face. What a cute smile!
In the water. He told me later that it was different to swim in because he couldn't see anything. It had rained most of the day so the lake was a bit cloudy. He said that he liked swimming in a pool better. Well he'll get that opportunity soon enough!
COLD! He rinsed himself off before we headed back to the picnic.
On the way to the car I snapped another picture. You can really see how many teeth he is missing in this shot. If I remember correctly he has 3 or 4 missing teeth. All on the sides of his mouth.

Here is a picture of Sam playing in the outfield during their second game.
Poising after the game.
Sam's team tied their first game 2-2, lost their second game 3-2 and won their third game 6-1. They are pulling together nicely as a team. Andy is one of the assistant coaches and I was asked to sit in the dugout to keep the kids in line and to make sure that they are ready when it is their turn to bat or go out to the field.
