Let's Celebrate with a CONTEST!








I used to hate anything associated with the Sylvania Rams. If you were a Plainview Bear anytime in the early 90's or before, you can understand. Now I have to say that my heart has become a little more soft toward our old rival, because that school sponsored a food drive for TWH last week.

The amount of food and paper products given by that community is completely overwhelming! It took 3 SUV loads to transport everything from the school to the house, and it has taken 2 full days just to sort everything. My next step is to prepare our storage building to hold what won't fit in our pantry. It's safe to say that I won't be purchasing non-perishable food for quite sometime.

Currently we only have one girl in the house (who, by the way, is working and has already registered to begin college at Northeast in January), but being so well stocked tells me that we may very soon have a house full of girls and babies! How exciting!


Now...let's get to the CONTEST. It seems to me that it's popular among some professional bloggers to periodically have contests. I'm completely amateur, but I thought a contest would be a great way to celebrate the most recent blessing!


Here's what you do....Guess how many boxes of Jell-O are in the box pictured at the top of this post. For the hair-splitters among you, I am referring to anything Jell-O brand, both pudding mix and gelatin. Leave your guess as a Comment for this post. The person who guesses the closest will receive a goody from me! How fun!!!


If you are unsure how to leave a comment, I've written instructions on the right. Don't be scared...it's easy!


Happy Counting, everybody!

Could you be so kind as to give the dimensions of the box? lol

TheiaC said...

OH good grief! I thought your husband was the engineer, not you! I estimate the box to be about 8 inches deep and 18 inches long.

No more hints...period.

When's the end date of the contest. You might need to publish some rules....:) :) !!!

TheiaC said...

Rules??? Oh dear, I didnt' think of that...I suppose the only rule is that you aren't allowed to guess a number that someeone else has already guessed. Contest will end at my bedtime tomorrow evening! Will be more specific next time!

Hope you family is well, Doris H.!
