cade is a finalist to win 15k!

as many of you know, cade has been working on a man cave in our crawl space. he has dug it out, wired it for electricity and laid carpet thus far. not too shabby for a little crawl space, eh? well, one of our co-workers heard about the project and let us know about a video contest lowe's is hosting for the ULTIMATE MAN CAVE. the winner gets 15,000 bucks for a man cave.

since cade loves videos AND man caves, he decided to put something together. we thought it was a shot in the dark- but it was fun to make the video, so that was enough to get it done.

well- just today we heard back and found out that from the 120 entries, cade's video was chosen by a panel of judges to be a top ten finalist! that means we have a one in ten chance of winning this!!!!!

now that the video is in the final round, the winner is chosen by popular vote. this means we need every vote we can get to help him win! i know that people are always soliciting for baby contests and bake offs- and i also know you are all busy.... BUT if you have a second or two, we would love to have you vote!

if you are feeling extra kind- you can vote tomorrow too. and maybe the next day after that. and every day after that until the end of the month when the contest ends. you see, one vote per day is allowed for every email address that registers.

the only hang-up with voting is that lowes wants some of your information in order to keep the contest fair and track the votes (like email address and such). but think- we could win this thing!

to place your vote(s), please visit and check out the videos – hopefully you like ours the best. our video is the one with the picture of the three of us (see below) and is called "the more baby stuff in, the more daddy stuff out."

once you've voted- spread the word! post it on facebook, email your family, tweet, make a big sign for your yard and announce it at church. whatever works.

THANK YOU for all your support. we will keep you posted!

We've got three email addresses at this household going each day. And I don't think it's that personal telling Lowe's how often I use a power saw.

Thanks to everyone for their votes. We really do appreciate it - and all of you will appreciate the sweet Man Cave if/when we win this thing.
