Lenny the Lion Giveaway Day 3: A sense of humor!


The Lenny saga continues!

But before we begin todays giveaway...I must first get to YESTERDAY'S big winner!

I have to say that our family has had SUCH a fun time going through all the quotes. We are bonding thanks to you! (See how awesome you are!!)

Yesterday there was a pic of Lenny strapped to B's bike with goggles. Here are the top entries chosen by the crew:

One of us chose Stacey B's entry: "It's a bird, it's a plane, it's SUPER LENNY!!! WOOHOO -- I'm FLYING!! (who says lions can't fly!)" (Entry #1)

One of us chose Denise's quote: "Um, is this a sheet knot or a double sheel bend?" (Entry #2)

Two of us chose Heidi's entry: "I'm cool like that." (Entries #3 and #4)

One of us chose Allison and Tommy's quote: "WHO roped me into this?? Get me outta here,I'm seeing red!!!!" (Entry #5)

And one of us chose Cameron's entry: "Roped in --- check. goggles on ---- check, ready to roll---- check...wait wait you gotta check (bg) first.We want to ride 55 not a bg of 55." (Entry #6)

And Random.Org chose: Entry #3!!

Congratulations Heidi! Email me at ourdiabeticlife@yahoo(dot)com and I'll get it to you very soon! (You have 24 hours...otherwise I'll have to put the entries through the random generator again.)

For the rest of you...Don't give up! You still have three chances to win!

Today we are celebrating a sense of humor!

We all know we can't survive Our Diabetic Life without laughing at ourselves, (or others!) Sometimes the old adage is true, if we don't laugh, we'll cry.

Lenny is all about having a well rounded perspective on all of this too. You can imagine, with 4 boys, Lenny gets into his share of "interesting" situations.

To win a Lenny the Lion stuffed animal from Medtronic, (and assorted other fun prizes,) tell me friends, what is Lenny thinking in this picture?

Enter the phrase in the comments section, and remember to keep it clean! Each member of our family will choose our favorite bubble quote! The favorites will then be numbered and a random winner will be chosen from Make sure to leave your first name! Comments without a first name will be void.

You have only until 9:00PM Pacific Standard Time to enter! Tomorrow the winner will be announced, and you will have yet ANOTHER chance to win with a new picture, and a new thought bubble being put up!

Good luck! And remember who your audience is! A 16, 13, 9 and 7 year old...and my hubby and me!

Try to take a moment today to laugh. It is one of the healthiest things you can do for yourself! I had to laugh the other day when the boys were having a serious conversation about what they would do with the money if we won the lottery...(funny in itself, because we don't play the lottery...but anyway,) they were having a really hard time deciding if they would put that money towards a cure, or towards buying a Rosie the Robot who would wait on them hand and foot. A boys got to be prepared for anything I suppose...although it seems to me, Rosie the Robot is my middle name. :)
