Lemonade Award!!!

My second award!!!

I am the proud recipient of the Lemonade Award!!! I am actually quite honored because of a couple of reasons. First, it was given to me by a very sweet and faithful reader - Septembermom. She blogs as a sanctuary from her busy life as a mother of four. She is a wonderful poet and will post her poems on a regular basis. You should check out her blog - My Voice, My View.

This honor is for blogs that show gratitude and/or attitude. I am touched that Septembermom would consider T Rex Mom and Dad Tales to have gratitude and/or attitude.

The rules for the award are as follows:

1. Put the logo on your blog or post.
2. Nominate 7 blogs that show great Gratitude and/or Attitude.
3. Be sure to list and link your nominees within your post.
4. Let them know they have received this award by leaving a comment on their blog.

Now, I have to deviate a bit. I'm going with quality not quantity. Thus, I am nominating the following five blogs (not in any particular order) for the Lemonade Award:

It's Spelled C-A-I-T-L-I-N: She has great mixture of gratitude and attitude. I am grateful to have her be my real life friend as well as my blogger friend! She has a charming little toddler who keeps her busy when she not making all the bread for their family.

Juggling Mama: She's a busy working mom of two boys and extremely loyal commenter! She often displays gratitude when talking about her home and family. I always enjoy her question of the week on Fridays.

Missus Wookie's Wanderings: Quaker, part time Warden, full time home schooling parent to teenagers Ewok & Princess, married to "Wookie". She lives in the UK which seems unbelievable far and exotic to a western girl in Idaho! Mondays are my favorite posts - Simple Woman's Daybook.

My Blog (mitchsmom): Family, Florida, and OB nursing. She posts some amazing articles on breastfeeding and pregnancy. Sometimes even some good delivery stories, too. Her family is into dirt bikes and she has some great photos of them.

A Room With A View:
"Mama. Wife. Lover of the arts. Talker. Friend." - currently she has a running log going since she's training for a half marathon. Always lots of positive vibes from her site. Definitely deserving of an award based on gratitude! Not only that but a cool user name - ballerinabiker!

So, there you have it! Congratulations to my recipients! Remember to pass the award along. You can follow the rules or pass it along to those blogs you feel fit the description (in my case I chose five).

I have to wrap up - T Rex is putting his goldfish crackers into his ball machine and making a mess - I should be grumpy with him but it is SO charming!

Don't forget the April giveaway is going on now through the 23rd...
One entry counted per comment per posting on either this blog (T Rex Mom and Dad Tales) or Thomas' blog (T Rex tales). Entries are doubled for followers.

Thanks for the award! :) I am glad that you think that my blog shows gratitude... sometimes I think that it is a little too much attitude! Oh well!
And thanks for mentioning my bread-making abilities. You know I love praise! :)

Aw... you are so nice. You've given me more motivation to keep jogging. I was so good last week. I jogged like 10 miles over the course of 4 days. I'm pretty impressed with myself. When I can jog 4 miles straight, I'll be even happier. And, as for the username - my dad named me the ballerinabiker because I used to drive my motorcycle to teach ballet class. Yeah, hot mama indeed!

Thank you so much for the blog award nomination - you are so kind! I like my Monday posts too, being able to have that weekly snapshot is just so fun to look back on

Thanks so much for the award. I know I haven't been reading your blog very long but I want you to know I enjoy both of your blogs.

I am going to do this an a few other awards I have gotten from a while ago that I just never seem to get around to doing.
