Tune In Tuesday Giveaway


So glad you decided to
Tune in Tuesday!

In honor of my birthday yesterday AND the thousands of RVs and NASCAR fans that are rolling in to my town with their window flags flying for the big race this weekend, I am pleased to announce a giveaway!!! (If you are one of those race fans in the RV, hopefully you have internet access so that you don't miss out on this one!)

And not just any giveaway. A holiday giveaway. You know, a giveaway to get your holidays off to a great start. A holiday giveaway that just might inspire the beginning of a new tradition in your household. Because, the great thing about traditions is that any time is a great time to start a tradition. Any time.

But, there are a few conditions if you win this holiday giveaway. (Is it okay to have conditions with giveaways?) (I suspect that even if you can't abide the conditions, you could still win the giveaway)



Conditions / Suggestions:
  1. Welcome this little guy into your home, give him a name and make sure that he appears in a conspicuous place the day after Thanksgiving.
  2. Inform your children that this little guy is here to whisper to Santa all the good deeds of the children.
  3. Every night when the children are asleep, move this cute little elf to a new location.
  4. On Christmas Eve day, the elf should be placed on the Christmas tree to wait for Santa to come and to whisper all those good deeds to Saint Nick.
  5. The elf goes back to the North Pole with Santa after he helps Santa deliver the gifts and goodies to your home.
  6. Be sure the elf returns next year on the same day.
Fun new tradition, no?

How do you win? Just leave a comment. And if you want another entry, be sure to send your friends and family members over to enter themselves. If they mention that you sent them, you will receive an additional entry.

Contest closes Saturday, November 14 at 11:59 pm.

Thank you for all the sweet birthday wishes. I truly had a wonderful day yesterday. My family made sure of that. I am so blessed. You'll know exactly what I mean if you happened to read the husband's beautiful words to me yesterday.

I love that man.

Happy Birthday!

Can I park my RV at your house for the race this weekend (I'll need to buy one first)?

I hope the odds of winning go up by being first!

That is such a cute tradition! I want to start it this year! Where can I find a cute elf like that, in case I don't win the give-away! :)

Heidi said...

I was going to buy you the "Elf on the Shelf" book for your b-day. I saw it in the Sky Mall catalog on the way home from Phx. Alas, I am too poor. It is on Amazon. There is a little activity book too. Your little elf is WAY cuter than theirs!

Holly said...

hi there! i keep getting bouncebacks when i email you for some reason. just wanted to let you know that you're fine any time before thanksgiving, and no pressure! i understand if you're too busy.

I agree with Ruth... super cute and I would love to win but if not where can I find this cute elf?

momof8 said...

That is the cutest little elf ever! If I win, I promise to abide by the tradition! If not, do tell -- where did you get him?

Ginny said...

it's so cute! did you know it also can come with a book? it's called the elf on the shelf. and it's a pretty cute book! I think if i don;t win the giveaway i will order myself one! what a good tradition!!

Happy Birthday.

Great idea about the elf. We always tell our kids that the elves are watching but having a visual aid would make it even more fun.

Jessica said...

I LOVE this tradition! I would LOVE to win!

Happy Birthday! Sounds like you had a beautiful day!

uniquelynat said...

Oh man! that is SUCH a cute tradition to start!!! I WANT that little guy at my house!!

Melody said...

L O V E this idea!! When we were kids, we had these little elf pouches and if we were good, sometimes there would be candy in them throughout december. The elves were magical. I was devastated when I was 11 years old and found the "elves" candy stash.

wonder woman said...

I blogged and linked, too. This is so dang cute.

Sarah said...

Wonder Woman sent me over. I love the idea and hope to win (or I'll just have to buy my own little elf...but winning one is so much more fun!)

The Head Eagle said...

I know, I'm Late! I do that a lot lately! Will you forgive me...if I promise NOT to sing you Happy Birthday? (I'm not known for my singing voice)

I love this! I have already made plans for a mischievous elf to visit my home this year! And this one..just might be the one!

Heidi said...

What a fun giveaway and such a fun tradition! I love your blog. This is Heidi, Natalie's friend, by the way. We met like once! Natalie was convinced that I thought her family was a bunch of psychos but she is wrong! You guys are so fun.

HanksFam said...

Hey, happy late birthday...what a sweet post from your husband. Ummmm, I love the elf idea...I think my kids would go crazy over it. And Nat sent me over here. Really. I happened to read her post first!

Nick and Serina said...

That is such a great tradition!! Where could I find such a cute elf? We are trying to start our tradtions before the kids come so that way the'll be in place when ever they do come. Hope you have a very wonderful Thanksgiving!!
