WHAT'S for dinner?!?!?!?!? and a Challenge

So a quick post tonight. Going with the theme of Christmas again. *wink* This was another part of SIL and BIL's gift.

With my husband's family, there are so many of us, we put family names into a hat and pull one family to buy for. It makes it a little easier money wise...SIL and BIL like the Outback (me too really) and so part of their gift is to have a date night with yummy food :)

I wanted to come up with a really clever GC holder and all that, but as it always does, Christmas arrived, and I had run out of time...so I tried to dress up what I had.

I have the 'Punny Farm' set from My Favorite Things, and thought 'hmmmm....I need to use that cow...' So I made 'bulging' eyes on the cow - and made a computer generated sentiment. Cute, right? I thought it is dressed it up a little - makes you giggle, and then onto the gift :)

What do you think???

Now - some other business I need to attend to. My cyber-friend Holly has issued me a challenge...kind of a fun one really.

The rules for this challenge are - Go to where you store your photos on your computer. Go to the SIXTH folder and pick the SIXTH photo. Post that photo on your blog along with a SHORT story about it. Tag SIX people and leave a comment on their blog or email them letting them know you chose them.

Being a rule follower (well MOST of the time anyway) I went into my photos, and came up with this one:

This is my older daughter - on New Year's Eve...also her 5th birthday. We had these balloons in my car the night before, and put them in her room after she went to sleep - so when she woke up in the morning - she knew it was a special day. The day didn't go entirely as planned due to some snow - but it worked out great, spent with family, and it was a LOT of fun for us all!

Alright - now to pass it on...I've got a friend who just started her blog yesterday, so I'm breaking her in right - let me throw a challenge her way...stop by Laura's blog and show her some love - she's AWESOME - and you'll love her as much as I do :)

Here's my 6:
1. Laura
2. Sarah
3. Rebecca
4. Dawn
5. Molly
6. Cindy

Can't wait to see what thier photos are :)

Thanks for stopping by!!

You stinker! You tagged me when I was trying to jump over the pile of cardstock...no fair! I wasn't watching where I was going! You're lucky I didn't trip and scrap my knees! I just might have to report you to the principal's office! Nanner, Nanner, Boo Boo!

On a serious note! What a precious little girl and her balloons and an awesome gift card holder! You rock!

Thanks for thinking of me..I do miss getting harrassed by all you stinkers!

Happy today!

Okay- I see I have been tagged! But I may change the rules just a tad....I have this thing about 3 6's!! Eeeewwww! So I think I'll just change the number to seven. Oh boy- that means I have to tag 7 people! Oh well, that could mean more fun, right?
I'll get to it soon. Thanks for thinking of me! :-)

Now as for the card and your pic- adorable on both counts! I love the card- you have such a fun style and good humor!

And that cutie pie of a DD you have! What a sweet idea you had with the balloons. I just may have to steal that one. She must have been so happy starting her birthday in such a fun way!

Okay- off to see what the 7th pic is in my 7th folder and then to tag 7 people!
