It's That Time Again

Contest closed! Winners were chosen using random.org:

The cereal coupons: Teri, Nikki, Kathleen, and Rissaroe
The Panda-monium CDs: Kathy, Silverhartgirl, Carrie, Dani, and Wendy
Nancy Douglas's book Freedom: Cuddle Cottage
Fire Brigade Jacket: Emily
Klackeroo: Emilie

I told Joe last night "the madness begins tomorrow." After he looked at me quizzically I said, "the bloggy giveaway carnival starts again!" He just shook his head and laughed at me.


So here is what I have to offer up:

In this post I mentioned I had some upcoming giveaways courtesy of Mom Select and here is one of them. I have 5 Panda-Monium! HP/Kung Fu Panda Activity CDs. It includes dance video, photo & print projects, downloadable goodies, and more.

Thanks to Jessica and Coyne PR I have 4 (1 winner each) coupons for a free full-size box of new Cocoa Puffs Combo cereal -chocolate and vanilla puffs (this is the first new product from Cocoa Puffs since they were introduced in 1958!

During the last bloggy giveaway carnival I won the book Freedom from Nancy Douglas. It was such an inspirational book as Nancy writes from the heart. An excerpt from the back, "Nancy candidly shares the pain, grief, and trials...from the initial storm of discovering her daughter was autistic, deaf, and failure to thrive...Nancy's compelling and honest account of life with a special needs child will transform the heart of all who read it." I'd like to pass this on for someone else to enjoy too.

Finally, the last 2 prizes are from my Discovery Toys site

this Fire Brigade Jacket (ages 3+)

and the Klackeroo -
Not a rattle or a ball, but a wacky food-theme toy to engage little minds. Babies are fascinated by it and can’t put it down. They click it, slide it, spin it around. With so many inviting shapes and happy colors, it beckons babies to use their hands to grasp, hold and handle as it encourages their development of hand-eye coordination. From 6 Months – Toddler

You don't have to have a blog to enter, but please make sure you leave an email address so I can contact you! I'll announce winners on Sat.

Good luck!

Hi Michelle! How are you, Joe, Kayla and Lucas doing? I just scrolled through your recent blogs and enjoyed all the pics! My how Lucas has grown and I can't believe that Kayla is 5 years old! Time flies and I hate being so busy with everything. I'm so glad you got to meet Sandra and Andrea. I love them, too. Although, I'm bad about reading their blogs lately, too.

Hugs,
Eden

The ones of Lucas doing a push up, and grabbing the spoon to feed himself, brought back memories of Josh when he was that age. Couldn't feed him fast enough!
