Virtual Baby Shower Game #3: IT'S HALLOWEEN PHOTO TIME!

virtualbabyshower

This may be a Virtual Baby Shower but I simply cannot ignore that it's one of my favorite times of year, HALLOWEEN!

So first, welcome to the shower! Everyone is invited! Come on in and help yourself to some Hand Punch! (I made it for a Halloween party last weekend, yummy! Hint: freeze water in a latex glove, cut the glove off and voila! You have a hand punch.)

 (Also if you want to read more about the purpose of the shower, you can read about that here). But we're in the middle of a Virtual Baby Shower with prizes and games and Virtual food and everything!

Today there is one requirement for the contest and that is to share a picture of Halloween but it has to have either you from this or yesteryear or your children in it! That can mean your four-legged children too! Just post about it and link it up below! And you will have a chance to win a necklace from my Etsy shop!


You can go to http://www.inspiremechic.etsy.com/ and choose any single one, not just the ones pictured.

There also two other games and giveaways going on as part of the shower so go play!
1. Bebe Au Lait Nursing Cover and Word Scramble (Hint: there might be a nipple in there or two. *snicker*)
2. Vaseline and Diapers! Share your Vaseline story or make as many words out of the word Vaseline as you can!
We're not judging here, just choosing from random entries! The rules are below, but first, this is our very Star Wars Halloween starring, Luke and Leia and a giant cinnamon bun hairdo:

A Clone Trooper who would just rather not wear his mask:

And Luke Skywalker in a candy corn coma in a homemade pumpkin patch.

Official rules:
  • First entry: Link up your picture! (This entry is mandatory).
  • 2nd entry: go to my website, Inspire Me Chic, and leave a comment with which one you'd like best!
  • 3rd entry: Tweet/Facebook/ or Blog about the contest and leave a comment with the link.
  • 4th entry: Donate to the NICU showers at the Mommies Little Miracles website (top right hand corner) or purchase something off the Mommies Little Miracles NICU Showers registry (First Name: Mommies Little Miracles, Last Name: Tampa Bay). *NOTE* This actually gets you TWO more entries to this contest as well as two entries for the next two giveaways! So that's actually 6 entries throughout the duration of the baby shower! Just make sure to leave a comment telling me you've donated. What are these NICU showers I'm speaking of? My preemie parenting group, Mommies Little Miracles, is helping to throw baby showers for moms who have babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Units in our area (6 of them) in November as part of Prematurity Awareness month. And we need help and donations and gifts for moms! You can read more about the project here. And thank you to everyone who has donated already!!!! I LOVE YOU!!
NOTE: If you have already donated prior to the Virtual Baby Shower, all you have to do is play each game and automatically receive 2 extra entries into each game!

So go ahead, link up and share!

On account of Halloween being on Sunday, this contest will be drawn on Tuesday, Nov. 2nd and so will the others, so NOW you have all weekend to play! Contest ends at 12 a.m. Nov. 2nd (late Monday night.) ET.

Here are my two. Scroll down past lunch for a glimpse of Thing 1 as a Miami Dolphin and Thing 2 as Catgirl. http://pubsgaleats.blogspot.com/2010/10/wednesday-27-october-2010.html

Oh, and for more Halloween fun, you need to check out some of the homemade costumes over at sfgate.com's parenting blog, "The Poop." Their Super Crafty Halloween Costume Contest is pretty amazing. http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/blogs/parenting/detail?entry_id=75451

Ooo, the new Peace one is so pretty! (But my favorite is the one I have already, "I need more cowbell!" ;-)

Love the Star Wars family theme. I think my family would do well with the Addams family theme, but Thing 2 would probably feel that Wednesday Addams isn't quite glam enough. *sigh*
