July 2009

Saturday, July 04, 2009


We hope everyone had a great 4th of July. It was very nice to spend a Saturday at home for a change. 

Here is a little holiday joy from Ever. She is dancing to one of her favorite songs from the amazing show Yo Gabba Gabba. (Special thanks to my buddy Justin Lyon) 

P.S. It is worth it to watch it to the very end. It's awesome!

I can't get over how much Ever & Bailey favor one another now that Bailey has the new "hairdo". And yes my kids watch Yo Gabba Gabba every morning. I have 4 shows recorded. They love the dancing. Bailey refers to the show as "Yo Gabba Gabba.com" and I'm not sure why.

This is GREAT!! I think this guy deserves an iPhone just for the creativity!

Denise Horn (07-02-2009 at 2:02pm):

That video was HILARIOUS!!! Big props to "#9!" :o)
Fun contest! Thank you SOOOO much for the phone!

Daniel (07-02-2009 at 5:39pm):

While they were making that video, lots of people were voting for #11

Chanel (07-05-2009 at 8:01am):

Ok really that is hilarious! Had me laughing out loud! Very nice little rally for support!


Allison and I want to thank everyone who entered the contest and participated by voting on your favorite image. The response was so much more than we expected.

The winner of Allison's battle hardened 16gig 3G iPhone is #11. It was an EXTREMELY close race between 9 and 11. There were some issues late last night where some multiple votes being cast, so I reset the poll to where the two pics that were clear leaders could be voted on today. It was very interesting to watch this develop. Allison and I definitely want to have another contest soon, maybe next week. Next time I will have a better idea on what to expect. 

I am trying to get a new 3Gs to give away but AT&T has made it so difficult now. I will let you know what I find out.

The winning image: #11Photo

You could do an Apple Gift Card for $199. Then whoever wins can get the phone on their own terms. Great contest...ARP's the best.

Leigh Ann (07-01-2009 at 7:10pm):

Thank you for the super fun contest!! It has been an exciting two days at our house. Although my husband, #9, did not win, we could not be happier for the beautiful mom who did win! I'm sure she will enjoy her new iphone. And we can't wait for the next one...

Regina McDermott (07-01-2009 at 8:22pm):

Ninja Jeff (07-01-2009 at 9:02pm):

The gift card is a good idea. Hmmph

Thanks for a great contest. We had fun! Check out our video we posted on You Tube. Glad #11 gets the iphone. As a father of three boys their pic was awesome. Have a great week!


Tracey (07-01-2009 at 11:48pm):

Love the mom and kids - such a sweet picture - If I didn't know how bad #9 needed that phone this is the picture I would have voted for! Congrats #11 - This contest was fun for our whole church.

Andrea Reed (07-02-2009 at 10:25am):
