...for a May Contest!

Well, it's that time again! We have such fun putting the contests together and trying to think up ideas to make them a bit different.

This month's contest is geared towards the kids; however, anyone can take part!!

Are you ready for what it's all about??

Well, we will release different pictures each week. The pictures will be a close-up of things found around our house and yard. The object is to figure out what it is a picture of. (oops, ended my sentence in a preposition - kids, never do this! *smile*). On May 31, please send us an email with your list of what you think the different pictures were of, in order they were released. Please put 'May Contest' in the subject line of your email. On June 2nd we will pick a winner from all the correct entries.

Check often because you never know when a picture may be released! It could be big, it could be small, it could be in the middle of a post, or it could be posted on its own. If you haven't already done so, you may want to sign up to receive the blog via email or through a feed.

...and what do you have a chance of winning this wonderful month of May? Are you ready??

This 4 Compact Disc contains:

Sing Along with Patch the Pirate
Patch the Pirate Goes to Space
Patch the Pirate Goes West
Patch the Pirate Goes to the Jungle

Here are the rules again -

1. Watch for pictures!
2. Keep a list of what the pictures are of
3. Don't end sentences in prepostions, please!
4. On May 31, send us an email with your list. Remember to put 'May Contest' in the subject line of your email.
5. Come back here on June 2nd to see if you won!

(Hint: If you look at the posts with pictures in them on our blog then you will have a good idea of the different things that we have around our house and yard.)

Have fun!!

I've done the usual lama procedure, but alas, nothing hidden in the text behind the pictures!

Hello Sir Michael -

Alas, I am not computer savvy enough to figure out HOW to put text into a picture. I know it can be done - but all the guides are far above my computer understanding.

Perhaps one day!

Blessings -

Thanks to everyone else for joining in!!! Remember to tell your friends!

I just took a macro picture of the exact same thing the other day (I think). It is a garden hose! Am I right?
