Oh What Fun It Is to Give, Give, Give it Away #3BoL12Days


We have had so much fun giving away fab prizes during the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways and I'm sure you're probably wondering what happened to days 11 and 12.  

The giveaways didn't stop.  In fact, these giveaways were special but their joy won't be known until Christmas morn.  We're charging this special Santa with this special delivery.


Last week, the youngest and I were shopping and picked the names of 2 angels from the Salvation Army Angel Tree.  The Salvation Army Angel Tree Project is one of our favorite service projects.  The kids enjoy picking a tag or two from the tree containing the name, age, size and wishlist for a child in need.  


The REAL fun begins after you've picked your angel's name from the tree.  I armed the kids with a shopping cart and off they went.  I could hear them asking each other "Do you think so and so would like this" while testing what seemed like every toy in the toy aisle to find the perfect gifts for our angel.  

I had a blast shopping for clothes for the 2 year old.  I found so many affordable items and ended up buying 2 outfits for each kid and only spent about $30. 

We were lucky enough to find everything on one of the kid's list but had trouble finding a karaoke machine.  This is usually the time of year when you can find them at a decent price but the ones we saw weren't the most kid friendly products.  They were pretty complicated but we settled on one we think she'll enjoy.  

What about you?  What are you giving away this year?  

I hope you will give away a random act of kindness this Christmas season.  Share the love of Christ with everyone you meet and keep the joy of Christmas in your heart as long as you can.  

Congratulations to all the winners thus far and don't forget there are still a few giveaways still open.

RAIN RAIN GO AWAY! GIVEAWAY HOP

Hello Spring!  

I am so excited for Spring 2018.  Not that I have anything major planned or anything.  Well, I am on a cruise right now.  Oh yeah, I'm on my way to Cozumel for a few days of rest, relaxation and margaritas.  

What a way to welcome Spring huh?  What about you?  What are your Spring travel plans?  Are you and the family hitting the road?  Catching a flight somewhere?  Where ya headed?

Nothing like a little extra spending money when on vacation and I am so excited for this Rain Rain Go Away! Giveaway Hop.  This is my 3rd year participating in this fun hop sponsored by The Mommy Island and The Kids Did It and each year it gets bigger and bigger.  

There are some really great prizes up for grabs and add some new blogs to your reading list plus your chance to win a $40 Visa eGift Card.  Why $40 you ask.  Well that's because I-40 is the interstate we typically travel to most of our Spring Break destinations.

Jeepers! It's January Hop

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massager…
