Lego Duplo: A lesson & a GIVEAWAY!!

It’s hard to believe that with November already half over (seriously, HALF OVER!) Christmas is just around the corner.  Stores are filling up with all things red, green and sparkly, houses slowly being covered in tacky & obnoxious lovely lights & talk of Christmas pagents around the dinner table.

It’s a time of year that holds joy, memories, laughter and family, it’s one of my favourites.  I love the music, the emotions, the traditions (the cookies) and now that I’m a mother, the opportunity to teach our girls about the Spirit of giving.

Each year as we wade our way into the Christmas season Corey and I spend a great deal of time trying to ward off the “Gimmies” and promote the “Givies”.  We want our girls’ desire to give to others to be greater than their desire to receive, most of all we want them to understand that Christmas isn’t at all about the gifts under the tree but the people around it and the gift that God’s given in Jesus’ birth.

As they get older the lessons are beginning to sink in for them and some of the traditions we’ve set in place are starting to make sense.  Every year I organize a food drive for the company I work for.  It’s a wonderful event that never ceases to bring tears to my eyes as I watch mountains of food be unloaded for those who’s tummies are hungry.  Being that Bethany & Audrey come to work with me, they’ve been able to experience the joy of giving through these Food drives each year.  From the invitations in the mail, to the pick ups at each business, to the doors of the Food bank our girls see the good that comes from people. They see the blessings in the bags of groceries and they’re learning that the tears in the eyes of their Momma & their Grammy are tears of thankfulness and blessing.  They’re learning that giving strikes deep into the core of who  you are and can be such a great joy!

  1. Ooh, I love duplo, both my kiddos play with it constantly. We already have the Snow White set at out house and it is an important part of our set as a whole. Nice to have girl characters you know?! We have lots of friends who would love to receive any of the above sets. If I were to choose four, I would go with numbers 3, 5, 6, and 7. Thanks for hosting such a great giveaway!

  2. 1,3,5,6 because it would make great christmas present for my niece! As for creative cakes, i might play with that myself lol

  3. Lego giveaway?! Sweet!!! I’d take the my first zoo for Jude who is obsessed with animal lately, Creative Cakes for Olivia who loves to help with baking, and the play with letters and numbers sets to add some learning in as Jude gets older. I had no idea dupli had so much variety now! Very cool. Hope I win! 😉

  4. My little ones are almost 5 (girl) and almost 3 (boy). My daughter would love 1 and 7 because she plays with them at preschool and talks about them non-stop 🙂 My son has recently been diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum and is a visual learner so 3 and 6 would be right up his alley. In the spirit of your post, I would ask my kids to pick one each to keep and one each to donate. My 3 year old might not get it but my 5 year old would think that's cool.

  5. I would choose the
    Snow White’s Cottage
    Creative Cakes
    My First Supermarket
    Sleeping Beauty’s Room
    Because I have two little girls who would have so much fun with them


  6. Haha my husband would love to play with all of them, yes even the princess sets! He loves to play lego with Addison. I would choose:
    1. Snow White’s Cottage
    2. Play with Letters (Addison loves her letters!)
    3. Brick box
    4. Creative Cakes because Addison loves to bake!

  7. Hey, still reading your blog!

    Would love for this to go to some kids who don't have a ton in my church! Not sure which ones are best, if I win, I would TOTALLY trust you to make a mom decision here and figure out which could go to those in need.


  8. i would LOVE LOVE LOVE ” creative cakes”, “my first zoo”, “play with numbers” and “play with letters”. Hope I commented in time! I usually check your blog regularly, but I’ve been out of my routine.
