It's a Semi-Slacker Halloween... GIVEAWAY

Let's see we went trick or treating on Saturday & I'm just now posting about it on Tuesday.  That seems par for the course here lately.

Seriously, I've been busy.  I just created a photo book through Kodak Gallery's Halloween program.  They have exclusive Photo Book Halloween designs available at kodakgallery.com/halloweenbooks until November 11.

The wonderful people at Kodak Gallery sent me a $50 gift card to purchase my book.  I have a Kodak camera & have used this gallery before & I was sure only the pictures I took with my Kodak camera would work.  As usual I was wrong, but this time in a good way.  I was able to use pictures Sassy took with her camera, even some pictures my friend posted on Facebook.  My first draft (photo book) had like 20 pictures, one on each page, my final product had like 50 pictures with collages on several pages.

I chose the 9x10.25" Medium Printed Hardcover, but they have books of various sizes both hardback & paperback ranging in price from $9.99 to $69.99.  The book was rather easy to make, so even computer illiterate people like me can figure it out. But of course I screwed something up & fortunately they offer live chat help & Jorge helped me fix my problem.  He probably thought I was an idiot.

I know you all are waiting with baited breath to see some of the pictures in my book.  I wish I had my book in hand, but I just ordered it 10 minutes ago & they're good but not that good.  I can't wait till my children see it.  Finally they have pictures to show without saying go to my mommy's blog.

*Feel free to fast forward to the bottom for the giveaway or click on the pictures to enlarge.*

After Saturday morning's soccer game, we headed over to the church for our Fall Festival.  My Annie did an awesome job running the show, so a good time was had by all.

Bo decided to tackle the rock wall.  I was so surprised when I looked up & there he was halfway to the top.
and so not to be outdone Sassy tried it.  Not a fan.

Baby Girl takes after her momma & thoroughly enjoys the Cafe area. (That's a corndog, in case anyone was wondering.)
Check out these little ladies in their Halloween attire
complete with zebra print shoes.
Cheesy, I know.  It's on the cover of my photo book.
If it's any count, I did have one a very cute UGA themed outfit.
After popping a Xanax & packing up my liquid happy (it was hell getting them all ready while GA was losing before halftime), we were off to visit the old folk's home MaMa.  Thankfully that was uneventful.  Then over to The Adam's for pizza & such while waiting to trick or treat.
Sassy the Black Cat
Baby Girl the Scarecrow & Mad Dog the Pirate
Bo the Black-Eyed Pea, who was a hit at the school costume parade.  Monday was costume day for Homecoming & Sassy's special ed academic support teacher's high school daughter even borrowed the idea.
Elvis & his cousin, Indian Girl
I'm not a Twilight fan, but apparently Sass is
My bestie MADE this mermaid costume, as well as Bo's P shirt.
Is it too much to ask for a decent picture with your mother?
Because this is what happens if you don't.
Retro was there... somewhere.

Okay now for the giveaway. 
The awesome people at Kodak Gallery have offered $50 gift cards to TWO (2) of my readers.  That means I will pick TWO winners. But we've got to do this week so the winners will have plenty of time to make their books, so you have until Saturday, November 6th to enter.

To enter:
*leave a comment
*vote for SSMOM at TopMommyBloggers
*Tweet this (hashtag #kodakgalleryfan )
*Post on Facebook
*post on your sidebar
*blog about it

And I know what a pain it is to leave 47 comments, so you can leave all your entries in one, but I will give you a point every time you tweet or post on FB (if you tell me).

Contest ends at midnight Saturday, November 6, 2010.

Oh crap! I missed entering. The book sounds like a great idea. I just did something similar for Shutterfly. I posted a blog entry about my upcoming Christmas cards and they gave me 50 cards free. I'm ordering $120 worth of cards and only paying shipping (about $9.00). What a deal!
