Giveaway Day...Backyard Edition!

Oh.... Hello!  It's Brittany here, ready to post today's giveaway!  While I tell you about free stuff, Hannah and family are working like crazy on their backyard.  Here are a few photos she shared with me:






In honor of Hannah and Jeff's hard work in their backyard, I thought it would be fun to think of all the backyard fun they'll be able to have once their work is done.  

Which brings me to today's 

Tuesday GIVEAWAY!  

To be entered into the competition for today's giveaway, all you need to do is leave a comment about one of your favorite backyard activities (we're talking foot races all the way down to making mud pies).    

One lucky backyard-lover will receive a FREE (I just love that word) Print It Yourself Paper Doll and Outfit Line of their choice.

Who will it be? The results will be posted Thursday!

  9. One of my very most favorite things to do in my backyard is watch my kids play. Also, I love to go out after the kids are in bed and it is a nice cool summer night ans swing on the swings without any child begging me to push them:)

  13. Watching the girls play in the backyard is my favorite thing, and now that Henry is older he wants to be right out there with them. I just have to keep him from eating all the apples that have fallen from the trees!

  14. We love just being there all together! It seems with everyone's schedules going here and there that finding time with everyone home is practically impossible. So when it happens we might be shooting hoops, BBQing, blowing dandelions or just chatting, as long as we are together, it's perfect!
