When God made my family he gave us a double portion of competitiveness. We're rooting for each other in the big things, but in the little things ("Who made the best flower arrangement for your baby shower, Nadine? You have to pick!" -an actual quote from last weekend)...we like to win.
Needless to say planning an official monthly family competition was- if anything- overdue. So welcome to month numero uno of The Great Family Challenge! Here's a few things you'll want to note re: this challenge and the challenges to come...
1) Each team is made up of two randomly selected family members (chosen via drawing names from a hat).
2) YOU get to vote on the winner! The power is all in your hands...fun, right? Voting is allowed once per day for the one week duration of the contest. Voting is anonymous so even if you happen to know our family, you shouldn't know who's entry is whose. (That being said, if someone sent you here specifically to vote for them, they broke the rules!)
3) Each month will have a different seasonally appropriate theme. The overall goal of this series is to showcase fun, creative and original ideas. Social media is a wonderful thing but sometimes the same concepts just get regurgitated over and over (and over). We're hoping to come up with a few things you haven't already seen a million times.
This month's theme was pumpkin decorating...some are hilarious, some are lovely, some are are more...refined than others (you'll see what I mean as you keep scrolling), but they're all quite creative and that was the goal.
So go ahead and cast your vote! You can vote once per day from now until 11:59pm next Thursday (10/15/15) and we'll announce the winner on Friday. May the best pumpkin win!
