And now, for a contest

Sometimes in the summer you need a little surprise, a little bit of fun. I know lots of you only look at our website or a few others, but many people have sites like this and Christina loves to click around and go see what everyone else has to say. Several of these other web sites held contests a few weeks ago, and Christina won one of them. A complete stranger who is completely lovely(from a website called Twists and Turns) sent Christina all this:



Incredible, no? But wait, here was the kicker:


(Christina tried for days to get pictures of the girls in these shirts, but this is as good as it got - they are matching shirts that say: "My first Twins T-shirt" to support the Minnesota Twins!. I guess this is the start of them being fans for life.)


Now, here's where the rest of you come in. The point of these contests is to "pay it forward" (like the movie, if you've seen it) where Christina now passes on the generosity by sending a package to one of you. All you have to do is add a comment to this post by Monday at midnight. Let us know this: if the girls had been triplets, what should we have named the third girl? We would have a Clara Mary Mae, an Elena Ashley Rose, and a _________?

We'll pick a winner at random and mail you off a surprise.

Stacy, can you tell that the shirts fit perfectly? They are their first real "big girl" t-shirts since they aren't onesies! They love them.

Stacy said...

They are ADORABLE! :)

Ahh, Twins fans. It does the heart good. :) I believe they have (or had) twin reunions at Twins games... fun!

And had you had a triplet grouping, how about Kiersten Anabel Leigh?

Got Boys? said...

Okay, here's my shot at it!

Nora Grace Christine

Nora for one of our favorite songs

Grace because you loved it for so long

Christine for you!

Got Boys? said...

BTW,

I did use Christine on purpose as a variation of your name :)

Em, Jared, Cor and Soph said...

I must admit I like Lauras idea! It is my daughters name, my name and my sisters name all in one! But I (being the difficult one I have always been) am leaving a boys name. Who knows if a third baby would have been a girl!
Jacob Ian Matthew(meaning long awaited) .

Got Boys? said...

Ohhhh, I love the boy idea! Why didn't I think of that!

How about Isaac Rei

Isaac means laughter and you would certainly be laughing if you got triplets

Rei is Japanese for gratitude

Hey, who even won this contest? We're still waiting for the last part!
