Cub Scouts, pumpkin patches, and giveaway winners, oh my!

As promised, the anxiously awaited (by my parents) glimpse into Jack's first month of being a totally adorable Tiger Cub. Let me start by saying that we have done A LOT of Cub Scout stuff in the past month. I am one of the leaders for Jack's den. So far, he has had three meetings, gone on a campout (with just Daddy and him, so that he thought that was kind of a big deal,) and gone to Bobcat Bootcamp. (True story: Every time I tried to say that fast, which was way more times than you would think, I accidentally said Bobcat Boobcamp. Moving on.) The Bootcamp was his favorite. He got to shoot bows and arrows, sling shots, and the Holy Grail of Christmas gifts, a bb gun. He has really been enjoying it, and it's really family oriented, so Harry and Addie have had a lot of fun, too. Here are some pictures of various Cub Scout things.

Last week, we took a couple of pumpkin patch trips. The first trip was just Jack and me. We went to Pumpkin Works on a field trip with his class. Neither of us had been there before, and we had a lot of fun. Jack's favorite part was Pete the talking pumpkin. My favorite part was during the hayride when the farmer gave a long and pretty elaborate explanation of how the wetlands on the farm purify water. (Can you say pollutants, boys and girls?) It was informative, but maybe a little complex for six year olds!

A few days later we went to our favorite pumpkin patch, The Great Pumpkin Patch. It was a playgroup trip, but Cory took the day off work so he could come too! It was a beautiful day, and the kids had tons of fun. Addie was old enough to actually participate this year. She was pretty proud of herself for saying "duck" when she saw the ducks (and the chickens... close enough.)

Some pictures of our pumpkin fun!

And finally... I drew the three winners for the Renuzit Fresh Accents Holiday Air Fresheners. The winners are Jessie B., Holly P., and Stacy E.!!! Holly, I will get yours to you this week. Stacy, I will send yours asap. Jessie, please email or Facebook message me your address, and I will send it to you asap. Enjoy, ladies :)

A surprise giveaway!

Here is how my day went today. I dropped Harry off at school. It was class picture day today, and he mysteriously woke up with a scratch down his cheek. Then Addie and I went to the first day of Project Step, (running late of course,) in Mattoon. (Which was really fun!) After going back to pick up Harry, I decided to go back to Mattoon to go to the salvage store before doing my regular grocery shopping. As I pulled into the parking lot, I remembered that the store is closed on Monday. Hoping to not have made the drive for no reason, I called Cory to meet for lunch. While waiting for him, I took the kids to a park. About ten minutes later, my phone alarm went off reminding me that Harry needed to be at speech back in Charleston in fifteen minutes. Blah! So we ditched our lunch plan with Daddy, and booked it to speech, with Harry not having eaten lunch. Then we had a looong grocery shopping trip because I hastily threw together a list in the parking lot.

But the entire day has been redeemed! When I got home from shopping, I found a surprise package on my front porch from Purex Insiders. Inside were two Renuzit Fresh Accents Holiday Air Fresheners!
So festive looking!
They come in two scents. The green one is Festive Snow, and has a really fresh smell. The red one is Winter Berry, and I think it smells like cranberries. And guess what? They also sent three coupons each good for one free air freshener!
So.... three lucky winners will each get a coupon good for one free Renuzit Fresh Accents Holiday Air Freshener. These will be in stores soon, so even if you aren't thinking about Christmas yet, you will be when it is time to redeem your coupon :) I will draw 3 lucky winners on Friday, October 14, using random.org. All you need to do is follow the blog (publicly or secretly, whatever) and leave a comment saying you want to win. (U.S. residents only) Renuzit brand provided free samples of Fresh Accents air freshener so I could review them. However, all of the opinions expressed here are my own.

***Also, to those who are anxiously awaiting it, (my parents) I promise I will post soon about Jack's first month as the World's Cutest Tiger Cub Scout. And, I will hopefully have a few more giveaways in the next few weeks. Yay!***
