Free2Eat Blogparty and Giveaway

Yes, it is finally here.   The time to celebrate Matthea getting her feeding tube removed.  I'm calling it Free2Eat because, well....she is now "free to eat" whatever she'd like. (Ok, within the healthy and legal boundaries, of course!)
I have looked, but I have not written Matthea's full story anywhere on this site...or at least I can't find it. So, I promise to write it out on another post this week.
But, here is a few posts about her eating progress this past year.  If you want to read about them more to find out what the "feeding tube" is you can click here.
If you want see progress from the summer click here.

Ok, so to celebrate I'm giving away two of her favorite Asian treats.  Plus a finger painting that she will make this week.
The treats are Guai Guais, which are a puffed cereal type snack.  You can choose the coconut flavor or the hazelnut chocolate flavor (think nutella). The second treat is a rice cracker that has a sweet and salty taste to it.
Hazelnut Chocolate=Nutella







Coconut Flavored

1. Leave a comment telling us your favorite snack food. +1

Hey, it's Hannah from SYIS. I'm so excited to hear about Matthea's big news! Of the 2 snack foods, I'm more curious about the hazelnut chocolate one. I've been following your blog every once in a while via facebook notices. :-) Merry Christmas!

Congratulations to Matthea and thanks for the invite. My favorite snack food are the sweet/salty rice crackers! I follow your blog every time I get an e-mail regarding it (don't know if that counts). Blessings to you all- Laura

Mike Pollock here! Yea, Matthea! We are packing and moving from KY, USA back to Tianjin, so can't join in the party, but send our love.

Yay, Matthea! Good for you!!

My kids LOVE those rice crackers, so they would be stoked if I won. :)

My favorite snack food is oranges. (Do those count as snack food?) Aaron got a whole box of them through a fundraiser and I have been eating 3 or 4 a day. Insane. This baby might be born orange.

Thanks for the fun and easy contest!

@Hannah....HI! It has been awhile since SYIS! How are you doing? I keep up with you a bit on FB...

@Laura, thanks!

@Mike...I heard you moved, so you are moving back to TJ? Awesome!

@Amy...Thanks...as for oranges, my other friend that is expecting is eating oranges just like that. Strange, but healthy. LOL

I will come to the party if we can make it! Me and the kids did want to make a Taipei trip so if we change our dates we'll come and celebrate this wonderful day with you. Yeah! No more feeding tube! I remember when you couldn't even have a drink of water. I love seeing you because you give the BEST hugs. Love, Lana

Lori said...
