a NEW BABY!...and a $100 TARGET gift card GIVEAWAY!




I am giddy with excitement!

I have a new niece or nephew coming today!!

This is #22 for me. Yes, you read that right...I already have 21 nieces and nephews!



My sis is checked into the hospital bright and early this morning so she could be induced to give birth to baby #4!

I am so sad we are in the middle of getting whopped with the biggest snow storm of the year right now, and I don't think I am going to be able to make the 2 hour drive to be there for the happy event. That makes me so sad! I know this is her last baby, and I have been there for all of them, so I am upset I won't be there when this gorgeous baby makes its debut into the world!

But, I have decided to turn my blues around and make this a happy day for all of us!

I'm going to have a

"GUESS THE BABY STATS CONTEST"!!

Ok, here is what you gotta do...

Just leave me a comment telling me...

1. Is it going to be a boy or girl??
2. What time will the baby be born??
3. How much will the baby weigh??
4. Mention my contest on your blog, and I will enter you again in the Boy/Girl category...even if your guess isn't right! Just leave me a separate comment, so I know you did it!

Here is a button, if you would like to use it!


Whoever is right on "TARGET" or comes the closest on the weight or the time...will win a $25 TARGET GIFT CARD!
(there will be a winner for each, time and weight)

I will ramdomly draw the winner from the correct Boy/Girl entries for a $50 TARGET GIFT CARD!

(Contest will close at Midnight Central Time, Thursday Feb 3rd, winners will be announced on Friday morning!)

GOOD LUCK!

I can't wait to show you pics of the new bundle of joy!

  13. Yay, it's going to be a girl. She'll be born at noon today and weigh 7 lbs 2 oz.

    If your niece had a laptop with a camera you could use skype to watch the entire event. That's how we stayed in touch when our youngest was in a trauma center after a ski accident in Reno and we were stuck here at home worrying our heads off.

    Congratulations Aunt Mary!!! I pray for a healthy baby and mamma.

  129. How exciting and fun! Seeing as you having posted the news yet, I'll squeeze this guess in under the wire. I'm guessing - a sweet baby girl, born at 6:05pm (in time for dinner), weighing 8 lbs. 7 oz.
    Best wishes to your family - it's always lovely to welcome a new bambino!
    And thank you for the fun chance.
