I hope that you are all doing well, and not getting too sick this flu season.Â I think I had a bout of it myself last week.Â For the most part, it was head related – headache and dizziness, which wasn’t too bad when I was allowed to lay in bed and be left alone (which, of course, did not happen all that often).
On the bright side, however, I read a ton.Â I have, of late, taken to the 8-12 year old fantasy genre – much cleaner, and often more exciting, than anything written for adults.Â Plus, Braden and I can discuss the books.Â I was able to read the entire Percy
But you may have noticed that with my flu, came a lack of my presence online.Â I actually got accused of plotting something…
Up for grabs today is a package of fun and nostalgia from Betty Crocker, courtesy of MyBlogSpark.
When Braden was little, I traveled with fruit snacks in my purse constantly.Â Those things are addicting, aren’t they?Â I think it has something to do with the way they squish in your mouth.
As you may have noticed, the Fruit by the Foot makes a fairly good racetrack on a birthday cake.
This giveaway features a 2 boxes of Betty Crocker fruit-flavored snacks, a frisbee, a yo-yo (which lights up, I think, though the kids ran off with mine), and a little wooden box of pick-up sticks.
And, bonus!Â The Betty Crocker snacks now say GLUTEN-FREE on the package!
To enter, just leave me a comment about your favorite game, toy, or pastime as a child.Â As you may have guessed, mine was reading.Â Although swimming came in a close second during our 8 months of summer (it sometimes feels like that).
This contest will end at 9:00 pm central on Monday, October 19, 2009.

My favorite passtime was also reading. But I remember riding my bike a lot.
My favorite pasttime was reading, and baking things, still are.
Gotta love those Betty Crocker fruit snacks! We always have some on hand and now it’s my 12 yr old daughter who carries them in her purse! She’s more independent these days and they come in great when she’s with friends and can’t eat whatever snack they’re having. (oh and a side bonus of her keeping some in her purse is that her little brother won’t go in her purse so he doesn’t eat them all up on her! lol)
My favorite pastime as a kid…wow, that’s a hard one. I loved to read, loved to swim, loved to ride my bike, loved to play with baby dolls, loved to go exploring in the woods, etc. I guess if I had to pick just one it would be reading. ; )
My favorite past time as a kid was playing SPUD! You know that game you throw the ball up in the air and everyone runs away except the person who catches it and then you have to spell out S P U D and try and hit the person (no in the face) with the ball. Such simple game but we played it for hours.
My favorite pastime in the summer was kick the can. The whole neighborhood would get together and we would play from supper past dark all summer long.
My favorite pass time as a child was riding my bike. We lived in the country and the closest neighbors were about 1 1/2 miles away. We would meet in the middle. We would bring snacks and have a picnic. I also loved playing Barbie dolls and paper dolls..
I loved when we had monday’s off from school and got to stay up sunday night and play games and eat snacks. It was a fun tradition.
My husband and I are totally addicted to fruit snacks so this is perfect 😀 When I was a kid my favorite thing to do was play Barbies and read.
Hi, I just happend onto your blog and love it. I am just learning about the gf diet and appreciate all of your info! My favorite things as a kid would be cooking, reading and playing hide and seek in our shelter belt (grew up in the country). Thanks
i used to love to color and paint i could do it by myself and it kept me very busy
I was a reader as well. We also used to stage plays and puppet shows for everyone in the neighborhood.
Mine was climbing trees.
My favorite pastime was reading. My favorite toys were pick up sticks and jax.
As a little girl I loved going into the sand box and pretending I was having my very own cooking show…yummy “mud pies.”
I also loved reading, a fact that my dad was thrilled with because my brother took after my mom (who doesn’t read for fun).
I loved fishing! My dad would give me a penny for every fish, and one summer I made $1.25!
My favorite childhood toy was Barbie, thankfully I have two girls to relive the pleasure with!
I loved to go camping in the summer, we would swim all day and at night roast marshmallows at the campfire.
I loved playing capture the flag with the kids in the neighborhood. Another thing I loved to do was play dodge ball too.
I loved to play jacks when I was young.
As a child I really liked to play with other kids. We’d play hide and seek in the field or “my little ponies”. 🙂 I didn’t discover a love for reading until adulthood.
I used to love playing baseball with my older brothers and their friends (I was a tomboy) when I wasn’t playing with my Barbie doll (I only had one) and my Betsy McCall doll. And when I was 5 I remembered playing with my Popeye the Weatherman colorforms.
As a child i used to love playing house and school
my favorite past time as a child was playing with pets, i had quite a few different ones growing up and i really loved all of them!
I loved playing hopscotch.
LOVED (and still do) to read!
