GIVEAWAY

I wish I could buy you all Christmas presents! 
I can't buy them for all of you but I can for one of you!!! 

Since I don't know who will win
I haven't even bought it yet! 

When I pick a winner I will shop just for YOU! 
I know a lot of you & want to pick out something I think you would like.  If I don't know you I will be happy to look through your blog to try to figure out a special gift for you.  If the winner does not have a blog I will just get ya something good.
(You will just have to trust me about that one.)

Simple to Enter:

1) Just leave a comment on this post.
2) Second Entry for Followers.

That is it!

But I also want to leave you with some tips to a reuse, recycle, green, Christmas.  The tips are a few I picked up from my boys:

Gift wrap can double for the perfect sword.



Christmas ornaments can double for Fire Num-Chucks.

Who knew?

Gift bags that have been regifted 10 times by the time
they make it to you make fabulous hats:
All the rage in Paris.

But a REALLY GOOD TIP...
...there is another giveaway over at:

So get over THERE!

And I promise you ...if you win my giveaway your package will NOT have a few kids pop out when it arrives (Unless of course you are Anne of Fiona & Twig...then expect a very large, very heavy, & probably very hungry by then, package.)

Giveaway Ends November 30.
GOOD LUCK!!!

Great recycling advice!! I always tell my hubby that we should just wrap up big boxes because that is all they seem to play with anyway after they open gifts! :) Cute giveaway!! :)

Hi. My name is Jessica and I am a new follower. I think the repetitious theme you will find on my blog will make you think of diamonds and pearls. HAHAHAHA...I actually just posted a giveaway today too! Great minds think alike! And obviously, I am lying and you know me so bless someone else. I just wanted to pop in and say hi...and how cool is that action shot with Bo in mid air? You are a recycling genius!

The French Bear said...

The best kind of gift!!! Although I would take those precious energy filled children in a heartbeat!!!! Might be easier if I came there, ha ha!!!!
If I would have kept all the boxes from the gifts the kids received, I could have had a complete set of play boxes....cause that's what they enjoyed the most!!!! I am a follower, I will add this to my sidebar though!!!
Hugs,
Margaret B

Funny how your little Bo shows up in every photo!! He's such an inventive little guy! Recycling can be fun!!

Thanks for having a giveaway and sharing about another one ~ have a Joy-filled Thanksgiving Day!

Victoria said...

Your boys are so funny! You can always send me the kids... When we're done playing I'll send them home with one extra for you. :) Sweet'ums would love Bo's fashion sense--she wears buckets on her head and blankets tied around her shoulders.
When you say follow, where do you mean? I don't do the Twitter thing. You're on my little updater thingie on Blogger. I feel silly for asking!

koralee said...

I need to get myself one of those fashion hats!

You are soooo sweet to think of us all...hugs for a great Thanksgiving week my friend. xoxo

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

Cool giveaway idea! Now, at our house? We would find the same uses for the paper and bags as yours did. Aww. the mothers of boys!

Tania said...

Kids can be so inventive when it comes to playing...

Tania said...

Karen said...

Oh, Libbie, how fun! Love the recycled ideas. Maybe we could start a "Christmas Hat" tradition with old gift bags-redecorated, like Birthday hats! :)

Have a Happy Thanksgiving.

The children are getting so big!!! How is mommy doing? Are you starting to show? I bet Annie would love to have a little sister or brother. I know she will be happy just being a big sister.

Hey Libbie - I love reading your blog. You have the cutest family! I love technology; makes the miles between friends and family seem like less. Happy Holidays to you and yours.

The best part of Christmas wrap is the sword fighting! :)

Strange - today's paper in Melbourne says children like the simplest toys possible. Not the latest toy at 384 dollars!!!! Yes I agree with cardboard boxes. Ideal for hide and seek.

Trisha said...

Thank you so much for stopping by and saying hi! I love the name of your blog-I too am a middle child!! Your children are adorable and I think they will love Cap'n Crunch French Toast! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Thank you for making me SMILE ! :)
I was having one of those " Sometimes being a Mom and a wife is just too hard days " it was good to take a little break for myself. You have a beautiful family Libby. It's been a long time since the Powderhorn days. I will check in again on your blog. I thinks it's time to make an Orange Julius

Oh my.... isn't this fun? :-) I actually won a giveaway like this over a year ago from The Quintessential Magpie... She picked out the MOST wonderful things....and I adored each and every one of them....but my favorite was a little boy figurine holding an elephant.... He looks just like my grandson who's favorite animal is an elephant... I'm crazy about it....

Warmest blessings,
Spencer
