Another Post....Wanna Join the Pool of Tex's Birthday?

Jon and I came up with an idea tonight at dinner.

Write a comment and pick which day Baby Tex will come. The winner gets to pick from a leftover gift card from Old Navy (with about 4 bucks on it), a leftover Chili's gift card with about 3 bucks on it, or possibly from some other leftover gift card of your choosing. I have to look through my stack.

If no one picks the exact date then whoever chooses the closest date will win. If two or more people choose the same date and it is the winner then we will split up the gift cards amongst the winners.

The official due date is August 26th. To help you pick a date....Ewan came on his due date and Isaac came 6 weeks early. I guess that doesn't really help....

Good luck!

August 20:

Tex will be a great missionary and preacher like Bernard of Clairvaux (who died on Aug 20th).

Interesting....

That is also my Mom's birthday! :)

I think I will take the date of August 24. No reason - wait, that is my Mom and Dad's anniversary. That is the first date that popped in my head. Are you going to have a pool for baby's weight? Or, maybe that could be a tie breaker if two people choose the same date then whoever guesses the closest weight of the baby wins?

August 23rd! Come on, Tex! Just hang on for 17 more days!

(Perhaps all the exclamation points will give me an advantage)

I vote August 26th--not a day early, not a day late.

I can't wait to see and then meet that little guy. :-)

OK -- I'm going to vote for August 26 -- my grandfather's birthday -- that would be my dad's dad, George Alexander MacBain -- Baby Tex's great-great-grandfather. He was a kind soul, a gentle spirit who loved laughter and loved his 3 granddaughters (no grandsons) -- since Monica had it first, she can have the gift card!

I'll take August 22 since it seems to be what is left in "close" range. Don't need a gift card - it's the knowledge of simply knowing I won that is the thrill of the game for me!

august 18th =)

hahaha

nicapamela said...

I'll take August 18th...one month to the day before I get on my plane back to Texas for a visit. : )

Jamie said...

August 23rd would be fun since we could share a birthday! I was supposed to be born on the day Elvis died, but I was late.

Dawn Reiss said...

i'm late to this game but i also think the 27th.

Marie said...

Ok, I'm assuming you haven't had him yet. I say...um...how about September 18th.

No, just kidding. Haha..right? Very funny right?

What about August 28th.

amelia said...

Oh my Gosh, Marie--September 18th?? You had me for a minute! Wouldn't it be ironic if my 3rd baby is the one that wants to be "late"?

Good luck on the poll!

Hi Amelia,
I'm going to say September 2nd. No reason except that we are passed most of the other dates.
Love to all,
