I know I have been absent...please read

     I have been stopping in to check comments but I have been a not-so-great blogger this month. A lot has been going on, my sister and her kids were staying with us and there really wasn't the quiet I needed to blog. I also did not have the time to sit and research ANYTHING. It was a fun time and I was able to spend some time with my sister. We had some late night coffee talks and tag teamed taking care of the 4 kids. Here they all are in my tiny living room for movie night:
My nephew was roaring like the dinosaur in Toy Story 3 lol


 They are home and settled but my nephew is staying with us for a little while. I now have a 2 1/2 boy exploring my house. I completely forgot what it was like to have a toddler and I have never had a boy. Wow there is such a huge difference! Rough and tumble, getting into stuff, and there is nothing in this house that he hasn't tried to touch (or broken), but I love him :) Paige gave up her room so we could give him a room since they are a bit too old to share with a boy. Joe is loving having another guy in the house. The other night they were kicked back on the couch with the surround sound blasting Transformers 2. It makes me think what it would be like to try for another baby then the 2 reasons come back to me... #1 Physical: I can't handle another loss which the doctor has told me is a 50/50 chance, and #2 Financial: We are strapped as it is, it would be irresponsible to try to have another one right now. So he is going to soak up whatever time he can with our nephew <3 My sister asked my hubby to give him a haircut and he embraced the "boydom" and went for it...
     We are all getting back into a routine thankfully, in the past 2 weeks I went to a concert, 2 parent meetings, a live event with the kids (review coming shortly) and 2 Valentine's parties,  but I am so far behind now on my blog that I don't know where to start! I have reviews, giveaways, promos etc to post so look for a plethora of posts between tonight and tomorrow. I have coffee and I am not afraid to use it!
     One new thing is that I am now going to reduce the number of extra entry options. I think it is just too much. Once I logged in and had 68 new comments from the same reader (not complaining at all!) for multiple giveaways. I feel that takes way too much time for 1 for the reader and for 2 others see that many entries and don't enter because they think they don't have a chance. I would rather have 100 entries from 60 different readers than 200 from 20. Does that make sense? Be sure to become a fan of Blogamajig on Facebook because I will be posting giveaway extra entries that way though. I really want to get the 2 linked up more.

     Big Announcement! Piper's 5th birthday bash blog event is starting bright and early on February 20th and will end on March 6th...the day before her actual birthday!

I will be doing some great giveaways and featuring some products from sponsors that are being given to Piper as gifts! I even have 1 sponsor who supplied ALL of the party decor and favors for all 30 of the kids she invited to her party. They sent fun Princesses and Pirates stuff, and they want to send a lucky winner a party pack too! All this is starting on Sunday so keep your eyes posted! Like Blogamajig on Facebook and you won't miss a thing!
