Winning Stuff Is Cool

Yesterday was the great End Of Summer Party at the library. A lot of things suck here, A LOT, but not the library. It is one of the best libraries I have ever been to. Granted it is small, but it is a wonderful place to study, they have excellent WiFi and a really cool inter-library loan system. I once got a knitting book from Alaska! can you imagine?
So, they had their party and as you can see, Little G won herself a prize playing baby bingo. Woo-Hoo.

And..............Lizzie won 2nd place for having the most minutes read! Yea! It was pretty nice loot. I know because it is currently scattered all over my living room.

Them, a prize drawing!!Lizzie won a set of play golf clubs! Which have been used to torture and harass my cat all over greater Utah!
In other news, next week looks like it may become the big house hunting trip in Alabama. I am excited but after reading the very depressing news concerning credit and mortgages, I am not holding my breath on finding a house. I am a born pessimist. Boeing is quick, they waste no time. Now they are telling us we need to be there by mid-September. Jeez! Slow down.
Have a great weekend everyone!

Yea, kids! Isn't it neat how the smallest prizes make them so excited. How cute!

Good luck with the house hunting. I've been writing about the mortgage thing for work. It's quite depressing. It's not impossible to buy a house these days, though, and depending on the market, buyers are in a good position to negotiate price. Think good thoughts!! (I know, easier said than done!)

Is the company offering any help in regards to the home search?

Looks like everyone had a great time at the library! wonderful fun prizes. Always enjoy a good read. I remember my library used to give out coupons for free ice cream to dairy queen for every hour you read. I read a lot.....

Don't worry about a mortgage, if i can get one anyone can :)
