A Teething Buscuit... A Shirt... A Book.... and Some Chreese

I had lots of mailbox fun last week!

Witt received some Soy-Free, Dairy-Free, Wheat-Free, Egg-Free teething biscuits. (I had to taste test because if it's free of all that stuff could it possibly be any good? Yep, not bad actually - they taste like maple syrup!).

He had three the day they arrived! (Ain't he cute?!)

I also ordered some cheese substitute: Chreese. Hmmm... I just don't know about this, but I'm willing to give it a shot. I haven't had that cheesy taste in about 5 months and I'm dying to have some! I'll let ya know...

After posting about what a groovy man Jeff is and receiving a suggestion from Super B's Mom, I ordered this T-shirt because MY HUSBAND ROCKS! Here's a close-up of the picture on the front:

My book! My book! I finally finished it, ordered it, and it came!!! I love it! My shelf is ready for it! Here are a few shots of the jacket:

My Table of Contents, something every good book needs... 'cause ya know, my book is GOOD!

And the title page showing us in our morning routine of piling in the bed. (You can see the HUGE picture of this at the bottom of my blog.)
Each title page has a picture; here is the chapter that shows the kids' artwork:

The pricing of the book is based on the number of pages and I had a few pages remaining before the next price up, so I added lots of picture pages at the end to fill them up.

And just for information sake, I had pink and blue pages. Blue because it's about boys and the pink pages were all from October when my blog went pink for breast cancer awareness month. I also used mostly an 11 pt font. The book loads the blog in 9 pt. There are a few pictures I am a little disappointed in because they are dark, but it's the photographer's fault (me) not blurb. Check blurb out, I think you'll be happy... I know I am.

Now, this week I'm expecting more mailbox surprises as I won Take90West's Pay It Forward Giveway!!! I have no idea what to expect, but I'm quite excited! And you do realize what this means for you... right? A giveaway from me!!! Because I get to "Pay It Forward". So, stay tuned... check back often... a giveaway is on the way... and maybe you'll have some mailbox fun, too!!!!

That is a great book, a real treasure!!! I love the pic of your baby and the teething biscuit. It has been a long time since we have done those around here and the picture brought back a lot of "biscuit face" memories!

Have a super day~~Kelley

I remember seeing this when you posted it, I just didn't get a chance to comment! It looks so great, very professional and I love it! I love your idea of the table of contents too, but I didn't use it in the book I just finished- maybe I'll add one to the next book. I am going to copy you and add a few pics of my book when I get it too :)
