No question ... cover #3 is the best for a variety of reasons - including the mom, who is the essential "ingredient" in your book. Best of luck!

Too funny, Jamie. My single girl friend calls me each week and the conversation always includes the same question from her, "Have you said 'no' to anyone this week?" My response, "Well ... yes ... maybe not ... okay 'NO!' Now, I said 'no' to you!." Maybe we should start a support group :)

Having access to my kids passwords are seemingly a simple solution to help guide and protect them online. Thanks ladies!

Ohhh... the Claremont sounds great. It doesn't lend itself to hot pants, but I do recall they have a ping pong table, which seemed so luxurious ... if there's time to play ping pong, life must be pretty sweet and relaxed!

I love all the creative ideas. However, my most favorite idea so far ... use the candy to decorate gingerbread houses! Dare I say it? The holidays are here ... so I'm saving the Skittles and M&Ms for rooftop decor :)
