Number three of the challenge is your Christmas Wish List, but I already posted that HERE.

Instead, here is some news!

K.A. has also created a blogging challenge! If you are interested in this one go HERE.

I am participating in Loren’s writing challenge.  This means that there will be some stories on my blog, so look forward to that! 😀

I just re-opened my old blog! It is now called WordPress Kid Blogs. Visit it HERE if you want to put your blog on, or just check it out!

Do you use the foreign language learning program Duolingo? I do, and I found out that if you look for someone’s user name, you can follow them! So if you have an account, you can comment your user name if you’d like! 😀

I was sure there was something else…

Well, here is something, Josie and I are still doing monthly button giveaways, so you can go up to my page above and enter for a chance to get a free button or sign-off!

Bye!

My user name for Duolingo is abarefootgal.

Button/Sign-Off Giveaway WINNER!

Are you guys ready to see who won?  Of course so! But sadly only one person could win. 😦 No worries though! I will try to do this again sometime. Maybe when I get two hundred posts! Only fifty more to go. 🙂 Also Nicole is doing a giveaway like this which you can see on her post HERE. But before you run away on other giveaway hunts, wait to see if you won!

Here are all of the 28 entries. Thank you everybody! I got a lot more than I thought I would!
