Giveaway!

Little Mozart has discovered the piano!


This girl LOVES music.  She dances and claps to any kind of music, and really enjoys the piano.  Her favorite song is "Little Red Wagon" by Raffi.  She starts bumping up and down as soon as you start singing it!


As a fun giveaway to celebrate 200,000 hits, I want to hear about your favorite songs!  Simply leave a comment here, on Facebook, or through email sharing your favorite song, the name of the writer/band, and a short little statement about why you love it!  You can enter up to 3 songs!  Just post each entry separately, because I'll be numbering all of the entries and having Caleb choose a number.  Multiple songs in one comment will only be counted as one entry.

As a bonus, you get an extra entry if you link this giveaway to your own blog or Facebook page!  Just write in a comment that you did so.  (You can get an extra entry for each one if you put it on your blog and FB page!)  :)

All entries must be in by Sunday night at 7 p.m.  Caleb will choose a random number at that time, and I'll post the winner later that night! 

The winner will receive several exciting Lock and Lock gifts, including a set of Hello Bebe food dishes, a set of EZ Lock round containers, a set of EZ Lock rectangular containers, and a cosmetic case. *  Woo hoo!!  :)

I can't wait to hear some of your favorite songs!!

One of my favorite songs is by Karen Carpenter. It is "Sing a Song". When my grandaughter was born I used to sing it to her when putting her to sleep. As she got older, I would sing it during our special times playing together. Now that she is 7 years old, she sings it with me. It will always have special memories for both of us. Tric Gillette

"I will Praise Him Still" is by Fernando Ortega. I love this song because it says that no matter what comes my way, I will praise him still. This song has helped me a lot as I have come upon many challenges, but have remembered this song and how I need to praise him still because it is in his control!

Revelation Song is one of my favorite worship songs because of what the lyrics hold. Such power, and reminders of how Holy our God is! These lyrics say it best "with all creation I sing, praise to the King of Kings, you are MY everything, and I WILL adore you." how powerful is that?!

Cora--great choices! Those are both good songs!

Tric--I love that song! I even won a talent show once singing it. I think I was 8 or 9 and I did a song and dance. :)

My 3 kids said...

Oh, I remember that talent show, LOL. :)
I have lots of favorites, depending on the day, but one is the version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow by Israel Kamakawiwo Ole', the guy from Hawaii. I love how he mixes Somewhere Over the Rainbow with What a Wonderful World. The latter is what Dad and I danced to at our wedding :)

Another favorite...
Garth Brooks' "The River"
It is a great song I discovered in college. I love the lyrics and they are good words to live by :)

My 3 kids said...

There are so many good songs....here are a few more...
Garth Brooks--To Make You Feel My Love...a beautiful love song that Bruce introduced me to :) Also, Unanswered Prayers, again by Garth Brooks....the lyrics are really good and this is another one that Bruce first told me about. Of course, I need to mention Our God, because that song has such meaning for our family now. Thank you, Abs for giving it such a special meaning. :) I have lots more.....but this is my last post. :)

Right now my favorite song to listen to is Wedding Day by Casting Crowns its just a really honest song that gives you truth. Its great!

My all time favorite songs since I was 3 years old when I declared to my mom in the car "This is my favorite son" is She's in Love with the Boy by Trisha Yearwood -- it's country sorry Matt I know you don't like that but its been the best for 20 years!

Erin said...

One more ... When God Made You by Newsong and Natalie Grant ... I think this is the song that will be very important in a few months.

haha! That video was awesome! It made me laugh how Abby shakes her hand to say "hi" and "bye" what a funny girl! One of my favorite songs is "Beautiful Heartbreak" by Hilary Weeks. It is such a reminder to me of how everyone has something that has broken their hearts to pieces, but you don't know it by looking at them. If, like in the music video, everyone wore a sign that said what their heartache is, maybe we would all be a little kinder to those we encounter. But we don't wear signs, so be nice anyways!

Mindy Gledhill's song "Hourglass" is another favorite. It makes me think of my kids, and the precious time I have with them. Beautiful song.

And, probably my most favorite song is the Smurfs "Your A Pink Toothbrush" because, it's just pure awesomeness. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HHV2z_d2Oyw
