THANK YOU GIVEAWAY!!!

Hey Ya'll,
Well, it's the 19th... So that means that we have another announcement to make.  We had such a great time and such a wonderful response to our 500+ follower celebration that we actually bypassed 600 followers!!!  Can you believe it?!?  YAY!!!  We are so thrilled!  So, what do we do now.  Well, how about another giveaway?  As we mentioned before, we both work in retail.  It's the busiest time of the year!  Next week is Thanksgiving, or in our house, known as Black Friday.  Hee! Hee!  Thing have been so nuts, that we haven't had time to do much crafting lately, so we are a little light on content.  Since we had so much fun with the last giveaway, we are going to do it again and see if we can reach 700 followers!!!  There will be 4 prizes.  One Big Prize and three little surprise prizes just for fun.  The big prize is going to be...

THE FULL SIZED CRICUT CAKE MACHINE
with Cricut Cake Basics Cartridge
That's Right!  We had so much fun with this and were so excited to see so many new followers that we ordered another machine!  Just for you!

This post will be where the winner is selected from.  There are three ways to win, like before.

1.  Comment here telling us the funniest and/or craziest thing you have ever done and/or scene during Christmas.  We can't wait to hear these stories!
2.  Keep the celebration button on your blog until the extension is over (repost letting us know you did or are going to).
3.  Announce the extension on your blog again (please repost with a link).

You don't have to do all of these, but each one will give you another chance to win.  We will announce the winners on Tuesday, November 29th.  The three surprise gifts will not be announced.  These are just for fun and will be announced on the same day as the winner of the machine.  This contest is open to followers only, so if you aren't a follower already, you will need to be one to be eligible to win.

So... what do you think?  Pretty cool huh?  We will mail it so that you certainly get it by Christmas and if you win and want us to send it to someone else for you, we will do that as well (within the US).

Thanks so much for visiting today!  We are so excited to hear your stories!

  2. Ok, you asked for it. When I was a little girl, Sears went all out for Christmas decorations. (kind of like in A Christmas Story) They would fix their backroom storage like toyland. They always had a beautiful Santa. It was magical. (this was in the '50's) There are 5 girls in my family (I'm the oldest) and we went as a family to "Santa Claus" shop. We never noticed them putting toys in the basket. I guess we were too awed by the displays to pay attention to what they were doing. (or maybe we were just too stupid) lol Anyway this particular year we lined up to talk to Santa and it was crowded and babys were crying. So I guess this Santa wanted to lighten the mood a little, he stood up and bellowed - "HO HO HO...and a bottle of rum." Everyone cracked up and I thought my poor daddy was going to "keel over". This is probably one of those, you had to be there, kind of things. But I was only 8 or 9 and it stuck with me.

  4. great prize. good luck to all who enter. funniest christmas we ever had was the year we waited until very late on christmas eve to buy a tree. needless to say there wasn't much to choose from. we wound up with three "charlie brown" trees that the man at the tree lot tied together with twine. it was pretty pathetic looking, but we decorated it anyway and the kids thought it was beautiful.

  5. Wow, you are so generous. May good Karma and wonderful blessings be bountiful in your lives!!!
    I shared this story on another blog, but I suppose it is just as fitting here...
    Each Christmas Eve at my in-laws house, we sing carols, eat amazing food, and play fun games for all ages present. The funniest game was when we split into teams of 6-8 family members and had to dress one of our teammates as Santa. The catch was that we only had a limited amount of supplies to do so. 10 sheets of Red Construction paper, scotch tape, a handful of cotton balls and a roll of black crepe paper. It was so funny to see everyone's creations after we all came back together in the family room. We were not allowed to see the other teams during the creations and only had a limited time to do this. Hopefully I can find some of the pics and share them at my blog to show them off. Wonderful memories and I feel so blessed to have such wonderful in laws.

  7. This is amazing that you are giving away yet another machine! You two are just soooo soooo generous.
    I'm afraid I had a childhood much like Jill's so I will share one of the coolest Christmas's during my adult life. You see my second child was born 2 days before Christmas back in the days that you spent 5 days in the hospital... well I was emotional as I had a 2 year old at home and wanted to be home so a sadness set in..... Well to my surprise the hospital made a big deal of Christmas and our little babies were brought in in a Christmas stocking with little Santa hats on them and of course we oooo'd and ahhh'd for hours and enjoyed our little bundles of joy. It was such a special day as my heart was turned from sadness into joy and we praised God for our blessings.

  8. OMG what a great extension of this celebration, super congrats on reaching 600 followers and I have no doubt you will get to 700, after all I posted about it on my blog and I get so so much traffic that that alone should get you to 700 LOL ha ha.
    One of the funniest things I did once at Christmas was................
    When my two children (boy & girl) were little about 3 & 4 I believe we were coming home from their grandparents house on Christmas Eve and got out of the card to head into the house, well you know they are so excited that it is hard to get them to sleep on Christmas Eve so I looked into the sky and there was a bright red light (radio tower light) I pointed up and said to them "holy cow look up there in the sky there is Rudolph's nose, Santa is coming you guys better get to sleep or he won't stop here" well you never saw two kids get into their brand new pajamas (I always let them open 1 present Christmas Eve and it was always PJs) and jump into bed and get to sleep. It was the cutest thing ever. I was amazed that they never looked up to see that red light other than on Christmas Eve.

  9. I guess the funniest thing we have ever done for Christmas was a few years ago. My mom, sisters, Kaylee, me and my hubby all drew names and bought our person a funny gift for each letter of the word Christmas. Then, we had a pajama party to give out those gifts about a week before Christmas. It was funny to see what everybody came up with and the funniest part was that even my sisters yorkies were they and they were wearing doggie pajamas too.

    Thanks for the chance to win.

  11. I wouldn't exactly call it crazy, but we were amazed at how well it went over...one year when our nephew was about 8 or 9, we did a modified 12 days of Christmas. giving him cute little poems or sayings on the 12 days (like a can of pears for day one, or dove soap, that sort of thing) he was up bright and early every day to see what the next one was going to be (and he is NOT an early riser) We loved it and he was excited with each new comedic surprise.

  12. craziest thing i've seen around Christmas was a Walmart on Christmas Eve.. it was just nuts.. the whole place was a mess and people were fighting over toys etc.. crazy! thanks for the chance to win.

  15. OMG, you guys are waaaaay beyond amazing! And who wouldn't want to have this machine!!! Even I have to definitely be a contender on this one! But, win or not, I think this is sooooo much fun and sooooo wonderful of you!!! Of course you'll make 700!!! I told you "it ain't over yet"!!!

    Well, I've reposted of course and I'll leave an announcement with a link.

    Now for my Christmas story -- this one is crazy funny! For my son's 2nd Christmas, my hubby had to work late on Christmas Eve; when he got home he was too tired to help me wrap the gifts for my son and the family as he'd promised he would, and that I'd thought we'd always do together. Well, having it to do myself I begin getting angry that I'd waited for him and there he was sleeping while I was up trying to wrap "awkward-shaped" toys and gifts alone. By morning, my son was up excited over all his gifts and trying to get "daddy" up to see what Santa had brought him and "daddy" just kept saying he was coming but never got out of bed. Well, tired or not, my son wanted "daddy" up so now I'm boiling (Well why not? I was up after wrapping alllll night, so why couldn't he be up; besides mothers are like that with their babies... lol)!!!! So I get a glass of cold water, march into the bedroom, and toss the cold water on my hubby!!! Well, that got him up and it broke the ice for me -- we laughed about it all day and I never once thought again about how angry I'd been! Later that evening when things quieted down, the family that visited had left and my son was in bed, hubby and I were spending a quiet evening watching TV when he excused himself. I'm still watching TV and yelling out to him what he's missing on the program when all of a sudden a huge splash of water -- like a title wave -- hits me from behind!!! The hubby had filled a bucket with ice cold water and paid me back from earlier!!! My screaming woke my son and again we laughed so hard we were in tears. Not many people know or pay attention to the glass of water on the table by our tree, or the bucket (yes, the very same bucket)next to the tree every year for Christmas. It's a wonderful memory and a funny one too!!!

  16. P.S. It's a long story, but you asked for it...LOL!!!

  17. The craziest thing....well, I was young...my brother swept through town and asked me if I could get my mom a Christmas present for our mom ...since he had no time to shop. Boo Hoo. Did I mention this was Christmas EVE? Who shops on Christmas Eve? I was so mad. I went to the beauty store and bought a Christmas stocking and filled it with lovely bath and beauty products...and a package of KY Jelly. Strangely, he never asked me to help him with his shopping again!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Wow, and I thought it was over, you two are amazing and what an amazing giveaway!

    I don't have a crazy or funniest story, but I do have a fun one. On Christmas day, after my children took about an hour opening their gifts I told them they had one more that they had to find, so we played the your "Cold when you weren't close and Hot when you were near" game. It took them a little while to realize that I had hidden extra money in a small snowman ornament on the Christmas tree, one for each of them.... they were so HAPPY and of course it thrilled me to see their smiles!!

    Thanks so much for the chance to win again!

  19. You two are truly amazing! Your celebration has been so much fun and just so full of wonderful inspiration! I truly don't have room for another machine in my home as I am blessed with a wonderful "understanding" husband. So, please don't include me in the drawing. I just wanted to stop by and tell you again how much I love your blog, adore your work and just how fabulous I think the two of you really are! Enjoy your Black Friday, I'll be hitting the sales also...who needs turkey???

  21. Years ago I taught in a Catholic school. The pastor had a beautiful children's Mass with a procession of 1st graders dressed like all the main characters and angels, and those who didn't have parts brought toys to offer to the newborn babe. I remember a doll, a toy truck and a stuffed monkey placed in the manger scene. The Sister who was principal of the school tried to hide these items, especially the monkey, when she came to water the flowers. The pastor would come in each day and reposition them somewhere in the scene. One day she knocked the monkey down behind the flowers. The pastor found it and put it right in the manger with the baby Jesus. You should've seen her face when she spotted that!

  22. Congratulations on over 600 followers! You have a great blog, so I am sure you will have many more followers soon! The crazy thing I do every year is shop all day on Black Friday. I usually start at midnight and shop for a few hours and then sleep for a few hours and then I am back up shopping again! It is so much fun! :-)

    You will hit 1000 in not time! and like Jessica said "May good Karma and wonderful blessings be bountiful in your lives"

    Thanks for your generosity... I am blessed to have the ability to get toys here and there (I do own the large size cake machine), but you made me think that I should have gotten the small one! lol

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving (Black Friday). I only did BF once! that was enough for me to now patiently wait for after Xmas sales! and to be glad there is online ordering!

  30. Wow I can't believe you guys are giving us a chance to win another machine. I'm so excited.
    The funniest thing I ever did for Christmas was the year I decided to do a Turkey instead of the Roast Beef we usually have. Got it all dressed, put in the browning bag, and into the oven at the right time. Several hours later, couldn't figure out why that wonderful aroma wasn't permeating the house until I realized I never turned on the oven. Well it is pretty funny now, but not so much then when dinner was several hours late.
    Hope you and yours have a blesssed holiday.

  31. Oh my your stories are so touching. You are both so generous with your talent a dn now with these goveaways. I have reposted the button on my blog and will announce this giveaway.

    The funniest thing at Christmas for me was about 10 years ago during a dress rehersal at church for the big Christmas musical. One of our assistant ministers had one of the leading parts. He returned to the stage after a costume dhange for the next scene and his big solo. He forgot to zip his pants during his quick costume change. So far, no problem. But as he was walking around singing, he took a big breath and threw his arms out. At that moment, the fasten on his pants came loose. The pants fell to his ankles, as he was walking and singing. He kept singing and then tripped over his pants and fell down himself. At that moment, everyone seemed to hit the floor laughing. I cried so hard laughing, I had tracks of my tears in stage masscara running down my face. Even writing this I am laughing.

    I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving this week.

  33. The first story that comes to mind that has some humor in it is when I was 14. I made a bet with my mom that if I could guess what all my presents were that she would give me an extra present. (Yes, I was a spoiled child!) So, my mom said sure, not thinking I could really do it...but, what do you know, I guessed every single one right! There were even two CDs and I guessed right on which one was which...and NO, I hadn't sneaked a peak at my gifts before hand...I was just THAT good! :)

  36. Well we have lived in many places and seen Santa in many outfits but we all just loved Santa in Hawaii in his tropical print shirt and shorts with his full beard and round belly, his elves were usually dressed in bikinis which I know the hubby liked. Christmas without snow was unusual for us but we loved Christmas on the beach with friends.

  37. Wow! You are the couple that just keeps on giving! Of course I'm already a follower (who wouldn't be?? LOL!) Thank you for all your generosity!

    Last year a good friend of mine & I were doing some late night shopping at Wal-Mart after a movie for girls night out. We hit up the Christmas aisle for some festive fun. We noticed most of the shoppers & staff looked weary & grumpy so we brightened their spirits by acting silly! We ran up & down the aisle pressing the buttons on those musical toys one at a time & dancing & singing to them. Then we donned crazy Christmas hats & skipped along wishing everyone "Happy Holidays!". By the time we got to the checkout, everyone was smiling & thanking us for cheering them up =)

  40. Wow! You're so generous -- another wonderful giveaway! Thank you so much! I can't really remember anything funny that I've done during Christmas, but the most unique thing I've done is sing in Bethlehem's Manger Square in Israel on Christmas Eve with the church choir. That is a memory I doubt I will ever forget. I don't have a blog, so I can't do either of the other two things, sorry.

  43. Congrats on reaching 600+ followers! The only thing that comes to mind is that a few years ago we bought what turned out to be a damaged Hannah Montana guitar, the HOT toy of the season. The local store was out, so I had to call toy stores for miles around to see if I could talk a manager into holding one for us. Finally, a store 70 miles away agreed to do an exchange. They would only hold the guitar for a few hours, so my hubby had to drive in dense fog. And even crazier is people were begging the store to sell them the damaged guitar!

I have re-posted and linked on my blogs sidebar your extension... oh fingers and toes crossed this time!! I have 2 younger sisters and the youngest's room was up by the living room, so xmas eve she would stay with me and my other sister in our room in the basement, well the youngest would start saying she had to go to the bathroom (right by living room also) and I thought she was trying to get upstairs and see Santa's gifts so I curled up and slept on the floor so she couldn't pass... a cold night on a basement floor! Anyway when I woke in the a.m. she was fast asleep in the bed and I was so PROUD of myself... until we went up and found all the presents opened!!! Thanks for making me remember that!

  46. I can't believe you are giving away ANOTHER cake machine... WOW. As i said yesterday's post, i am like Jill and don't have good memories of Christmases. The one that comes to my mind is when my sister and i both got dolls, mine doll had blond hair, because i had blond hair and hers had black hair because she had black hair, well she wanted my doll and my dad made me give mine to her.. i was so sad to have to give up my doll.. but i have had many good ones since i grew up and had my children.. i was just telling of one the other day, , my son wasn't going to be able to come home for Christmas, he had just joined the Marines - it was going to be the first Christmas he wasn't home for Christmas, well my daughter, after borrowing money from me not telling me what it was for, brought him a ticket to come home, and i was crying and reading the Christmas story sad because he wasn't there, and she said my present was outside, and he was in a BIG box and i went out and he JUMPED out of the box...sorry that was so long i tried to make it short... Thank you again for the Everyday Cake cartridge... i am still so excited about winning it.. hugs sandy from ukiah

  47. Are you kiddin' me?? You just had an awesome give-away and now you're givin' away more?? You guys are totally toooo generous!! :-)

    I know I can't enter this contest cuz I live in the Great White North. (well, actually, Canada) LOL But I just wanted to share my story:-

    When I was a child (an only child, to boot!), there wasn't much under the tree. I received one present from Santa and one from my parents, which I was very happy for, don't get me wrong, there. :-)

    Well, one Christmas, some relatives decided to give us some presents, so I had more than 2 that year, as did my parents. Well, according to them, when I was about 4 yrs. old, I got up in the middle of the night and unwrapped every single present that was under the tree. When they awoke and saw the living room, there was paper, along w/ tags, from one end of it to the other. They had nooooooo idea who had given what to whom. I guess because I hadn't seen so many presents before, that I thought they were all for me, from Santa.

    My mother still talks about that to this day! LOL

  49. Congrats on over 600 followers! Awesome!

    This memory I don't really remember but apparently one of my older brothers got my younger brother and me up VERY early one Christmas morning and we opened ALL the presents..and didn't save any tags. No body knew who gave what to whom. My mother spent the day apologizing to everyone since she didn't know who to thank for what! It was the mystery Christmas! :D

    My funniest/sweetest Christmas memory happened last year when my nearly 4 year old daughter was opening her gifts from her uncle and aunt. They bought her sparkly red shoes (like Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz) and she immediately put them on ecstatically. She insisted on wearing them the entire day and didn't hardly care about the other gifts. What can I say, the girl likes shoes! :)

    Thanks for the chance!

  53. The funniest I can remember is also the sweetest/ My now Husband bought me a ring. I was waiting for the proposal and all I got under the tree was a cookbook? So was a bit dissapointed. I knew he bought the ring because we went looking LOL Well I didnt open that cookbook!!!! It was in in it. It took him forever to get me to open it as I was watching the kids who were all just sitting there and not opening. The stinkers Knew where it was. Thats my story!!!!! Have a Happy Thanksgiving All!!! We go on another journey the Monday after to the Hospital for more surgery with my DH. He is fighting cancer and winning this battle one day at a time.

  64. Christmas story---we were walking through the mall, shopping and I was a little girl...I was waving my hand in the air up and down like a wave. I was going to pat this mannequin on the head as I walked by...just as I got as close as I could be to pat the bald headed mannequin, I realized it wasn't a mannequin at all, but a real living MAN!! He was apparently taking a rest on the mannequin cube. oh goodness!

  65. I think the silliest thing I ever did was perform in a skit at a work Christmas party. When you dress up as a fairy and throw pixie dust all of your boss and your co-workers, you never live it down.

The funniest thing that happened on Christmas was when My Husband and I moved into our first townhouse we decided to light the fireplace for the first time Christmas Eve, neither one of us knew to open the flume and the entire place filled with smoke! We weren't laughing then, but we laugh now about it!

  69. The funniest thing we did for Christmas was put on a dance contest with my kids when they were little....We told them that the best dancer would win 25cents and they swore it was a lot of money then...lol....they were dancing their heart out for only 25cents...

    My kids are 20 to 30 years old now and we laugh about it every Christmas!!!

    Congratulations on your 500!!

  72. One holiday season I was driving with my mom and my son (6)at the time, Santa was the topic of conversation. Mom asked my son if he still believed in Santa. I slightly punched my mom. The car became quiet, Soon after my son said "next your going to tell me the Bunny isnt true". I was so upset with my mother. In a matter of seconds, my little boy wasnt my little boy any longer.

  77. I don't have a blog but I sure do love yours. As for a crazy Christmas story.. When I was nine our family moved to Japan. For Chritmas my dad wanted to do something special. There was a Kentucky Fried Chicken about a hour away from our house by train. So we took my dad to the train station. We waited for him. Well when the train came back it passed our stop. We saw our dad walking in the train I am sure he was surprised it did not stop where he thought it was supposed to stop. Well after about 30 min or so another train came and it stopped and my dad was so happy to get off of that train. It was a special Christmas and to have a taste of American food sure was good.

    Thanks for a chance to win.

  81. The funniest thing I remember was one Christmas I found that my parents where hiding all the our presents in there private bathroom which we where not allowed to use. Me and my older sister peeked in the room and had seen 2 new bikes. We pretended to be surprised at Christmas, but soon after that I confessed to my mom and she punished me(she took away my new bike for 2 weeks). We laugh about it all the time.
    Thanks for giving me a chance to win.

  85. When I was a teen we planned a "snowman surprise" in our neighborhood. With our parents' permission, a group of us went out in the wee hours of the night and made a snowman in the front yards of all our neighbors!
