The World's Largest Nerf Party LINKY {Giveaway}

*UPDATED* Thanks for participating! Here are the two random winners of the Nerf sets: Mom's Just One of the Boys (#7) and There Must Be More Than Dishes and Laundry (#14). Congrats!!

Thank you for helping Mason celebrate NERFING cancer! I hope you guys were able to have your own little party (just your family or a big bash with neighbors and friends)!

Today is the day to link up your pictures! Every participant will be entered to win one of the prizes below (two winners will be announced tomorrow).

While we're partying online, Mason and a few hundred of his friends, family and community members are having a LIVE Nerf party in Colorado! He's counting on my readers from all over the country to help make this the BIGGEST party ever!

Here's how we celebrated:

We invited some friends to a local park: The Eck Life, Bake at 350 and Magnolias and Mudpies, but had to move it indoors due to rain (to which I tweeted: "Moving Nerf party inside my house and I'm not even worried. This is what happens when you go to Africa.")

My daughter made bulls eye vests from construction paper:


The kids divided into two teams: boys v. girls:


And the battle began:


All over the house:


It was awesome.


We did it, Mason! We celebrated your victory over cancer!

How about you?

I wanted to thank you for helping me understand how much letter writing and other interaction helps our sponsored children with Compassion and World Vision! I was never faithful with letter writing in the past, but that has changed thanks to you!
