Congratulations to Heather A., Austin B., and Jamie L. – who each won a Heart of Christmas DVD!

Enter more contests on our sister site, Susies-Coupons.com!

 

Christmas time is nearly here, and, with it, some of the most heartwarming, inspiring movies. I’ve recently been introduced to a new holiday film, sure to become one of your family’s treasured movies of the season.

Inspired by a true story, THE HEART OF CHRISTMAS (rated PG) tells the story of Austin and Julie Locke, who are devastated to learn that their young son, Dax, has been diagnosed with cancer. With courage, determination and faith, they decide to give Dax one last Christmas – even if it has to be in October.

When the community sees the holiday decorations and learns the heartbreaking truth, what happens next is a miraculous outpouring of care and support. The Heart of Christmas will touch your heart and bring home the spirit of the holidays.

We think you’ll love this movie, so we’re giving away three DVDs of “The Heart of Christmas.”

There are multiple easy ways to enter, and they are all detailed on the rafflecopter form below:

What to Expect When … {Contest Closed}

what-to-expect-when-900x300

Congrats to Sara B. – who won our What to Expect When Giveaway! Stay tuned for more contests and giveaways...

I have great respect for the What to Expect book series. Each book, in turn, guided me through what could have been a pretty intimidating batch of years with babies and young children.

As an expectant mom, What to Expect When You’re Expecting helped me to understand the changes that my body was going through in a straightforward and helpful style. I was so nervous and excited for the birth of my first child that I spent a lot of time reading and rereading chapters of the first two What to Expect books.

And here’s a funny fact: I once used one of my What to Expect books to diagnose my husband’s appendicitis. (It was the closest book at hand with trusted medical advice in the middle of the night when he was overcome with wrenching abdominal pain. Apparently, appendicitis exhibits the same in toddlers and men in their mid 30s.)

WhattoExpect.com – the online version of the What to Expect When You’re Expecting book series – has generously offered to give a lucky Momscape reader the first three books in the series:

The winner will receive 3 books:

What to Expect When You’re Expecting

 

What to Expect the First Year (What to Expect (Workman Publishing))
What to Expect the First Year
What to Expect the Second Year: From 12 to 24 Months (What to Expect (Workman Publishing))
What to Expect the Second Year: From 12 to 24 Months

New Momscape Giveaway: Sweet Cakes of Artful Soap {Contest Closed}

I just love these soaps.

soaps-400x315

I love it when someone is artistic enough to elevate an ordinary, everyday thing like soap to the level where it becomes art. Sometimes I think that’s what life’s all about.

These beauties are made by a little company named Milagros, which used to have a their own shop on Main Street in the little Colorado ski town where I live. Now you have to go upstairs in a flower shop to find them, but I sniffed them out and we are now happily reunited.

These bars smell divine. Heavenly. And you can find a design to suit any personality. Beyond coffee cups and, well, the Earth – there are martinis, gardenias, mountain scenes, Christmas trees, cherries, watermelons, peaches and lots more – with scents to match. You’ll have to use your olfactory imagination here, but the scents for the soaps pictured above are as follows:

“Good Earth” has hay, floral, and citrus notes.
“Café Ole” has hazelnut, cinnamon and coffee bean oils.

I’m giving these two bars away to a randomly selected reader who leaves a reply at the end of this post and tells me simply this:

My favorite winter sport is ____________.

If you don’t personally participate in any winter sports, please note that I will also count watching others as they engage in sport, as well as indoor pursuits, such as cocoa slurping or Frito munching or dog snuggling.

I’m not sure why I chose these two soaps to go together. Perhaps because coffee makes my world go round? In any case, the drawing will be random and the entry deadline is Monday 11-9-09 at midnight mountain time. (US and Canada 18 and over, please. Complete rules are here.)

Also, please note that comment moderation is enabled, so your comment will not show up immediately, but as long as it’s not rated R, it will appear below quite shortly.

Then follow us on Twitter or find us on Facebook because these are the channels through which we’ll announce the winner on Tuesday the 10th.

So, tell us: what is your favorite winter activity?

Thanks to all who entered! This giveaway has ended, but stay tuned for more!
