Blog Hop and the Famous Card Box Giveaway

I missed the Blog Hop earlier this week so thought I would combine the giveaway and the photo hop together. All you have to to do to be entered in this giveaway is write a caption for this (not so good quality) picture.
This is SO 18 month old Jack's personality....Amanda was on the computer last night and looked over on the couch and this what she saw...she snapped this picture with her phone and it is our favorite picture of the month! So give it a Caption in a comment and you will be entered in the "Card Box " giveaway. This one is a 75.00 value! and since I am not sure how to link back to one of my older posts, you will have to go to that post in March...Or if you would like to email me ( and tell me how...then I will learn a new trick today. It has been everyones favorite prize and one of the most popular things I sell for gift baskets. And since I am being honest, many of you have given me blog awards that I appreciate so much, but I am not sure how to copy them and link back to you.
O.K. so now you know I am a tad computer illiterate. The giveaway will go to the person that comes up with the cutest caption. I will annouce a winner Monday morning, so you can enter as many times as you want. You can probably tell, but in case you cannot, he is watching TV. We are keeping this little man along with his brother, all weekend, while his Mom and Dad take a much needed anniversary get away.
So many of you have emailed me, asking about are a few snapshots from yesterday...HE is doing great, totally well and so loved. Thank you for your prayers and concern.
A Mom and Dad madly in love with a little boy!

REMEMBER your comment needs to have a caption for the picture of Jack sitting on the couch. This may only be a funny picture to us because we know him. Have a wonderful weekend. I am so thankful for all my new blog friends.

Deep Thoughts by Jack: "Which came first, the chicken or the egg?"


" Just thinking about all the fun things Grammy and I are going to do" or

"Trying to stay awake"

Teresa, I figured how to link back to your old post. Write me when you can. Blessings,

Rita said...

Precious little boy. Grandchildren are such a wonderful gift. It's too late for my brain to be creative, but it looks like some of your comments are pretty funny.

LivingforGod said...

Thanks for visiting my blog and for your kind comment!

Caption for the photo:-
"You may leave now, everybody. I'll be fine. I won't even make a sound."

"I'm the King of the Couch!"

"Wow...Grandma is super nice. She's letting me stay up late, sucking my pacifier to my little heart's content, and watching TV as long as I want. Ah..I can stay here forever!"

"There is no place like Grandma's home!"

Love Being a Nonny said...

Just Chillin!!

Misty said...

"Just chill-axin'..."

*One of my new favorite words because it cracks me up when my husband says it! (It's a cross between "chillin'" and "relaxin'" as if you can't POSSIBLY figure THAT out! LOL!

Julie said...

Thanks for visiting over at my blog. Just read the post about your Dad's birthday. Thanks for sharing and being transparent to a world of sisters who relate and identify with our whole range of emotions and desires in this life for our relationships.
Well....since you decorate houses for Christmas, the photo of Jack made me think he was sitting there watching the fireplace, saying with a little cartoon bubble over his head..."I will, I WILL wait up for that Santy Claus man this year. I WILL see him come down my chimney!!!!!" :-) He had that kind of glazed over half falling asleep look, like he was trying to stay awake.
Children...they are everyday miracles, are they not? :-)

Mimmy said...

Picture caption: "This pacifier tastes a whole lot like strawberries, don't you think so Grammy?"

This comment is about your post regarding your Dad. My mother too died of cancer. She was diagnosed in late March, 2000 and died on June 30th of that year. Pleasing her was the one goal that I will always believe I failed to achieve in my years at home. In fact, I am not sure I pleased her until I married for the second time when I was 40. That is a very, very long story but please know that I can relate, at least to a degree, with your feeling. However, know this, I do believe that your father loved you. You could not have developed into the loving, caring person that comes through on this blog if he hadn't. Thank you for sharing. It takes a great deal of courage to let your most inner feelings be the subject of something that is so public. You are a remarkable woman.

God Bless,

"Hmmm... now I know why they make me go to bed so early. This TV stuff rocks!"

He is a cutie and I have to say Grayson is one pretty baby!

In Him,

Win a $15 Gift Certificate to my Etsy store (something for almost everyone). Sorry to say, to enter, folks do have to visit my store and say what they would like. But your comments about how hard some of the rules are for entries really is giving me something to think about for next Friday. Like you, I would prefer that it be fun to enter my giveaways... you made me think.
