Pocoyo Giveaway for National Bubble Bath Day!!
Did you know that this Satrurday, January 8th is National Bubble Bath Day?!! Heck yeah! How do I celebrate, you ask? Full up the tub with hot water, pour in your favorite bubble bath, put on the outfit yo mama gave you and jump in! If you’re a gorwn up, enjoy a magazine or a favorite book and if you’re a kid, enjoy your favorite tub toys… like a Pocoyo toy!

Pocoyo is an award winning preschool animation series that originated in Spain and is now here in the States on Nick, Jr and PBS. My daughter, Aubrey, was in love with Pocoyo even before the American shows came out, as we discovered him on YouTube last year when she was two. She even wanted a Pocoyo party for her 3rd birthday but she didn’t get one because there wasn’t any merchandise in the States yet and I wasn’t about to pay $50 dollars on Ebay for a Pocoyo table cloth and 8 plates. I’m a good mom, but I’m not THAT mom. Geez.

Anyway, to help spread the word about National Bubble Bath Day, I’m giving away a Pocoyo bath tub toy figurine (the one in the center of the photo below) and a 14-day Premium Pass subscription to Pocoyo’s online virtual world, www.PocoyoWorld.com

The bath figurine is appropriate for children ages 18 months and older and can be purchased at Toys “R” Us stores nationwide and online at www.ToysRUs.com.

To enter the giveaway, just perform any or all of the following entry steps below. None are mandatory, but you should leave a separate comment for each one. Entries will be received until Monday, January 17 at midnight and winner will be chosen using Random.org.

Just a quick note to announce the winner of my Screamin Daily Deals and TheBlogFrog.com’s SoCal Family Connect community Turkey Dinner giveaway… BERNADETTE!! Her blog is Bern-Baby-Bern.blogspot.com. Please check out her blog and congratulations!! 

The holiday season is officially off and running! I attended Aubrey’s preschool Thanksgiving Feast today which was a ton of fun and I also bought almost everything I need to make holiday gifts. I bake treats every year. Both to keep costs down and to avoid the mass commercialism and mobs at the malls. And I love to bake – so it all works out. I just need a couple more items and I’ll be all done with my holiday “shopping”!

Better get back to nagging my three year old. Rest time is a battle these days. She doesn’t want to nap anymore, but definitely needs a quiet time. She fights this too, but I have to stick to my guns. I’d be so embarrassed if she turned out to be an axe murderer or something. Ta-ta.

A SoCal Giveaway of Thanksgiving!

I’m THRILLED to announce this very awesome giveaway, made possible by Screamin Daily Deals and The Blog Frog’s SoCal Family Connect community

Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away and that means the holiday season is upon us! This has been a difficult year for our great country and many of us are tightening up our budgets and spending more carefully. Even if your financial status hasn’t changed in 2010, I’d be willing to bet you know a family who has experienced job loss, bankruptcy, home loss and more.

Let’s get to the good part of this post – I have been given a full turkey or ham holiday dinner, made by the fine people at Bellemente Catering in Santa Clarita Valley, to GIVE AWAY!!! This is a $150 value and the winner gets it for FREE!

What I’m hoping is that people will enter this giveaway and of course, if they are in need, keep it for themselves – but if not, I hope that the winner will donate this fabulous meal to a family in need, or a local organization such as a shelter, half-way house, etc. Be creative and think of what you could do with this meal! I also hope this giveaway will spread awareness of Screamin Daily Deals and the great things they are doing for our local communities… on top of giving us killer deals!

Maybe this giveaway will inspire YOU to buy additional meals through Screamin Daily Deals and give them away! Spread the love this holiday season and feel good about your purchase contributing to local schools and non-profits as well. That’s the coolest thing about Screamin Daily Deals!

You can view the details of this holiday dinner here and remember this link is just to see the details of what the dinner includes – you do NOT have to buy the deal!

Here’s what you’ll get – Serves 8-10 people:
– Choose either a whole, roasted, unsliced turkey OR ham
– Salad
– Mashed potatoes
– Gravy
– Rolls
– Pumpkin pie

Here is the fine print:
– Does NOT have to be use for Thanksgiving or Christmas. This deal doesn’t expire until Feb 12, 2011 so you can use it any time before then if you are the winner
– Must place your order 72 hours in advance
– You must pick up the food in Santa Clarita or you can have it delivered within their delivery area for an additional fee
– They are closed on the actual holiday, so if you want this deal for Thanksgiving or Christmas, you will have to get/receive the food the day before and reheat for your holiday meal.

To enter the giveaway, please leave a separate comment for each entry. There are 7 different ways to enter and the first two are mandatory! This giveaway is a short one and will only run through midnight PST on Thursday, Nov 18, 2010:

1) Leave a comment and tell me what you would do with this meal if you win! (mandatory)
2) Register for Screamin Daily Deals – use this link & receive a $5 credit in your account! (mandatory)
3) Follow my blog on Google Friend Connect 
4) Follow me on Twitter
5) Follow my FunnyYellowMom community on TheBlogFrog
6) Follow the SoCal Family Connect community on TheBlogFrog
7) Tweet this giveaway & leave the URL in your comment: 

“Win a FREE Thanksgiving dinner for 10 in SoCal to keep or giveaway! Hurry – ends 11/18!!  http://tinyurl.com/24c42vm  (Plz RT)”  

Winner will be selected using Random.org and must claim the dinner within 24 hours of being notified via email or I will have to select a new winner. PLEASE be sure I am able to reach you via email or Twitter – leave it in your comments!

Good luck and happy giving!
