Just too sweet

I thought you all would like to see our "little guy" that has lost his binky. Isn't he just adorable! His name is Chase and he just turned two.

I know what your thinking, don't say it... he really shouldn't still have his binky, but I'm a softy, he's our fourth and last boy (and no, we're not going to try for a girl) and I just can't seem to say no yet.

For those of you who are wondering why I'm posting about this and you haven't been reading our blog lately, here's the scoop...I was packing all the sampler boxes for December and had them all spread out all over the dining room. Chase decided to toss his binky right into the middle of them. We haven't found it since, so I'm assuming it's in one of the December sampler boxes that were mailed out. So we thought it would be cute to run a contest to win a FREE January box if you found Chase's binky in your December box. It is his favorite one! Don't worry though, no toddlers were harmed in the making of this contest! We have replaced his "lost" binky with a new one!

But, no one has claimed the winning prize yet. I think it may have gone to binky heaven! If you found it in your sampler box, please email us to claim your free box. Of course, we'll need a picture of it to verify that it's the ONE.

Have you seen my BINKY?

Okay, so we have one more unannounced free box contest! You can win a free January Out Of The Box Sampler


your box contains my son's lost binky(pacifier)!

Yes, you read it right, my son threw his binky over the gate while I had all the bags spread out all over the dining room ready to ship for Monday! It had to have landed in one of the 80 sampler bags! So he'd really like to have his binky back and has been lost without it! (He does have a spare but would prefer his other on)!

If you find it, please email me and then mail it back first class mail (that's the cheapest) to us and we will reward you with a FREE January Box from the Out Of The Box Sampler!

One more thing... I had drawn 2 raffle tickets because we had so many great products to give away, but the second number was never claimed. I figured everyone had probably tossed their tickets in the can after they didn't win so I didn't want to pull another number. So here's what I decided to do...

I just took all the November box buyers names and put them into a big hat and drew a winner!!!!

And the winner is (drumroll please)
