CSN Stores Giveaway... and Only Nolan could come up with this...

In case you haven't heard and want to enter... I am hosting my first giveaway ever for a $50 gift certificate to one of 200 CSN Stores! To enter, please go here to the giveaway post for all the details. You have until noon on Sunday, May 9th, to enter!   Thanks to everyone who has already left a comment and to all the new readers to my blog!


In case you are looking for another amazing giveaway, please head over to Robynn's Ravings for 3 different giveaways she is hosting.  They all have to do with food and I should mention Chipotle, and Great Harvest Bread Company are both involved!




So next week happens to be "Birthday Week," in our house with Nolan turning 10 and Colton turning 8, just threes days apart from each other.  Since we skipped parties altogether last year, we promised each boy could do their own friend's party this year.  So the boys have been making invite lists, and throwing out party ideas.  Yesterday Nolan decided he should put together a gift idea sheet.  He cut out ads from the newspaper just to give us some ideas of what he might like for his Birthday.

His "gift ideas" fall under the category of "Only Nolan..."








Only Nolan, would figure out, if what you really want is a Guinea Pig...

Just ask for a SNAKE!!! A Ball PYTHON to be exact. I mean for starters, they're cheap right? The little stinker even managed to not crack a single smile when he generously offered to let it sleep in our room.

Or, if what you really want is an Ipod Touch...

Just ask for a 46" HDTV. I mean look at it... the price dropped 1,000 dollars already!

That, in a nutshell, is Nolan. Gosh I love that kid!!

  2. I have to laugh. Kids are funny
    My oldest seemed to want everything that cost 19.99 and he wanted the "whole collection".
    The youngest only looked at balls. They were 99 cents and his heart would beat trying to decide which one he should have. I kept thinking under my breath :Kid you can have.19.99 's worth lol but kept my mouth shut.

    That's a real nice shot of Nolan.
    He's growing into a beaut. Watch out Mom. Those girls are a comin :)

  8. Creative ideas :) An Ipod should be great if he has an ear for music :) A very happy birthday to both the boys from me in advance :)

  9. Missy, in total agreement with those thoughts.

    Vic, ha, Nolan has had the girls coming for a long time... he just hasn't responded or reciprocated yet... but one day it'll catch up to him too!

    Megan, oh yes, I think they all get savvy this way.

    Ally, thanks... its Irish actually and means "strength" and "champion." Its pretty fitting for him!

    Kaleena, uh hmmm... I agree :)

    Kelly, thank you, I can't believe how big he looks in it!

    Bonnie, I know... the funny thing is we don't actually get anything like this for his present. Its usually not a big ticket item and he is always happy with what he gets.

    Tranquility, why thank you. We may find him an Ipod, but not an Ipod touch... I don't even have one of those!!
