Inquiring Minds and Sweet Contest! (new clues)

Inquiring minds want to know:

What did we end up getting Cami after she got over the whole big dog disappointment?

A bathrobe AND a camera...she's excited, but certain of us [namely my first born] aren't so sure that this house really needed another picture happy photographer. :)


Speaking of my first born...
he got the exact beginning climbing set he'd bookmarked on the REI website and handed us a coupon for.


Emma really wanted a Baby Alive doll that actually pees, POOPS, and tells you it's stinky, but it sounded a little too much like a dog to me, soooo....
watch out comes the latest American Idol in training with her very own karaoke machine.

Ellie got a cute, cuddly (much cheaper) Baby Alive doll that performs no bodily functions other than incessant cooing and babbling.

Adam got the only thing he wanted--Lego kits far above my IQ level.

And from my sister AnnaLisa....a cute stylin' new temple bag that is about 50 years newer than my previous one.

So now for the contest...

Guess at what mine and Glen's joint anniversary/Christmas gift is...

Some clues:

1. About 15 years overdue
2. It has something to do with numbers
3. The clue about numbers, while true, may be misleading
4. I need a nap

He went to Jareds??? Finally!!

After 15 long years of wedded bliss, Glen finally bit the bullet and went to Jareds and got you that 24K belly button ring you've been longing for.


Kim said...

Your contests are hard! What would I have wanted for the last fifteen years with numbers? You paid off your student loans!!! Congrats! You going to do mine now?

K said...

I'm confused by the number part of the present. Did you get Rummikub like you've been wanting for so so long?

Matthew K said...

Since I have inside knowledge, this entry will be thrown out, but it is worth a try because I really want the prize. You are finally moving to the 90210 zip code, like you have always dreamed.

Matthew K said...

Actually, Lara and Glen have waited 15 years to have their favorite child, named after Lara's favorite brother and her favorite convenience store. So coming soon to their household is the long overdue, Matthew Seven-Eleven.

Denise said...

this IS hard.

I don't have any idea...but a contest with rules as cool as could I not enter?

hmmmm...but I am going to say a honeymoon...I don't know what this has to do with numbers, but I am going to guess it anyway.

ps. love the camera.

Seven days on a sunny beach somewhere, in the middle of winter, while grandma and grandpa stay with five beautiful children.

Andie said...

Ooooo, ooooo, a sleep number bed?

alexandra said...

Denise, you stink. I was going to say a honeymoon as well. The number thing throws me as well because I'm sure you're not going to Vegas to play 21. Ooh, though maybe it's an 8-night, 7-day cruise????

Charlene said...

Denise has a good guess, but I am not sure, so I am going to say, an updated anniversary/wedding ring?
