Up in the Night's First Contest!

I’m so excited I can hardly contain myself. I got this idea from Confessions of a Pioneer Woman and I think it’s a great way to let all of you know how much I appreciate you reading my lil o’ blog. I’ve got this picture and I want you to write a caption for it. While I may not be able to give you a $500 gift certificate to Best Buy, I can offer you a $25 Amazon card. Yippee!

So here’s the backstory. Mid-summer, shortly after the soon-to-be exHub and I separated, he took Kaleb to California to watch a couple football games. After returning he handed me the digital camera and lamented that he hadn’t taken many pictures. I forgot about said pictures until uploading the frozen pumpkin to my computer. I found this:
It was the first of about 5 pictures and was by far the most interesting. It represents my son’s first encounter with cheerleaders—and San Francisco 49’er cheerleaders, nonetheless. So here you go—post your caption for this picture in a comment to this post by Sunday the 13th, noon (MST) to get a shot at the Amazon gift card. Anyone can enter and one lucky blogger will win! I feel all Publisher’s Clearinghouse…

And you thought you were lucky?

shauna said...

Phew... I feel like I've been away for days. The ac adaptor for my laptop died so I had to express a new one and haven't been able to access my computer for more than 24 hours. But I wanted to say I'm enjoying your captions. You still have a couple more days!

I suppose we don't necessarily get to vote...so I am just going to say, apropos of nothing...I really like Eileen's.

"Honest, Mom, they followed me home... Can we keep them?"

or:

"Me 'n' Dad went fishing, and LOOK what WE caught!! You shoulda SEEN the one that got away..."
