I have been saving money while shopping online with Cashbaq and want you to know about it, too. Shop for products and services at over 2,100 stores, and earn cash back. You save more than you would with a rebate credit card. They'll even give you a head start, and put $5 in your account when you sign up. Best of all, it's free. Cashbaq pays you.

Just for laughs....

Ever browse YouTube just to get a good laugh? These are some of my all time favorite videos, and of course they all have to do with BABIES...

On this last one, the third section with the little blonde-haired toddler yelling at the waterslide, that little guy reminds me of my Jonny at that same age. He was JUST like that! LOL

A great gift idea for our ever tightening budgets!

My dear friends,

Christmas is tight this year.

I will be making bedroom slippers for you all as gifts.

Please let me know your sizes. You'll most likely agree that it's a splendid idea, and should you wish to do the same, I've included the instructions below.

How to make bedroom slippers out of maxi pads:

You need four maxi pads to make a pair.
Two of them get laid out flat, for the foot part.
The other two wrap around the toe area to form the top.
Tape or glue each side of the top pieces to the bottom of the foot part.

Decorate the tops with whatever you desire, silk flowers (this is most aesthetically appealing), etc.

These slippers are:
* Soft and Hygienic
* Non-slip grip strips on the soles
* Built in deodorant feature keeps feet smelling fresh
* No more bending over to mop up spills
* Disposable and biodegradable
* Environmentally safe
* Three convenient sizes: (1.) Regular, (2.) Light and (3.) Get out the Sand Bags.

I've attached a photo of the first pair I made so that you can see the nifty slippers for yourself...

Awaiting your response. It's crucial that I get the right size for each one of you.

What can brown do for you?

Well, we've got a bit of news to share... Roy is a UPS employee for this holiday season! He has a temp job as a driver's assistant. Today was his first day.

Its pretty neat how he got the job, since he wasn't even looking for one. We operate a home business and do a lot of shipping with UPS- we have an account with them and our local driver, Mike, makes almost daily stops here. Over the last 2 yrs, we've gotten to know him pretty well. He has become quite impressed with Roy and his strong work ethic. When Roy was gone on his mission trip to the Ukraine this past summer, Mike inquired weekly about Roy's well being and when he would be back, etc... He even gave Roy a UPS t-shirt as a welcome home gift.

Well, Scott got a phone call about 2 weeks ago from Mike asking permission to have Roy be his personal driver's assistant for the holidays. He knows Roy works with Scott all day on our home business stuff, so we thought that was very nice to ask us first. Scott thought about it and asked Roy if he would even be interested, and when he was, gave the OK for Roy to apply.

So Mike gave Roy all the details then proceeded to ask him every day if he had applied, did he get the call for an interview yet... etc... Mike was also daily contacting the guy who does the interviews and hiring if he had reviewed Roy's application and made arrangements for the interview yet. I guess the guy who interviews/hires is a good friend of Mike's.

Roy finally got all the application/interview stuff done and had orientation yesterday- then he was on the job today. Mike picks Roy up here at the house, they do the deliveries and then he drops him right back here at home! You can't beat that! $8.75/hr and almost guaranteed overtime hrs as they get closer to Christmas.

The best thing about this job is that if Roy proves himself a hard worker, he has his foot in the door for a permanent position if one becomes available! When they arrived here after the route today, I went out to snap a pic of Roy on the truck and Mike called out to me that we should be very proud of our son, he is a hard worker and he was very impressed. Yes, I am proud of him!
