Help us win a Disney World vacation!

Friends and fellow bloggers, we need your help!

Please vote to help our family win a Disney World vacation! We entered a funny video of our cute daughters in the Bob Evans Super Spud Sing Along contest. We're one of six finalists, and it's pretty simple now - whoever gets the most votes wins!

Our three daughters are the stars of the video. Lucy is only three years old but she learned the lyrics to the jingle and led the singing. Her little sisters Bridget and Anne joined her in performing and pretending to be immersed in a giant tub of mashed potatoes!
You can vote once per day through the whole month of December. Go to and on the left side of the screen, enter your email address and click the big red button.Unfortunately, the first time you'll have to fill out a registration form. Then click our video (Cute Sisters by Veronica Herr) and the Vote button underneath it. Thanks for your help!

PS - If you are concerned about filling out the registration form, I understand, but I read their privacy policy and it states that "Bob does not sell, rent, or trade the information that you provide to us at this Web site." And they won't send you any email as long as you un-check the box labeled " I would like to sign up to receive exclusice monthly offers from bob Evans." Thanks!

Motivation's been over 9 months since I last posted. It would seem like I dislike blogging, but in reality I probably read more blogs then anyone else. :) I'd like to post more....but I don't. But now I have more motivation to do so because Ryan's youngest sister just left for her first year in college (with a soccer scholarship - Go Vanessa!) and my sister just left after graduating college (and becoming a nurse - Go Regina!) to do a year of volunteering with Mercy Corps down in Savannah, Georgia. She recently started a blog here, and it's making me incredibly jealous of the gorgeous southern landscape! She will be gone for 12 months and will not be able to come back AT ALL, not even for holidays, which will be pretty depressing. :( But, if we get our finances together enough, then I hope to visit her beautiful land during the dreary Illinois winter.

I'd better go though so we can watch our Dave Ramsey (just recently we've been all about Dave and it's pretty exciting!) and get a few more things ready for Lucy's first day of preschool on Tuesday! ACK! Can you believe it? I didn't think I would be as emotional about it as I have been and it didn't even start yet! :) But, maybe that's just postpartum hormones still. :)

Postpartum time after my first natural birth....geez, that's another 10 posts in the making. Someday I'd like to write my birth story about Anne's birth, but I'm still emotionally trying to sort out all that happened. :-/

Hope to see you all soon!
