Holiday Legs & A Giveaway

Remember Rainbow Legs? Well, since they are a big hit with the little girl in the family, I decided to make a few more pairs for her. Introducing Holiday Legs, also known as Candy Cane Legs and ...

Rudolph Legs.

And, because I'm feeling festive and full of holiday cheer, I am offering this pair of Candy Cane Legs in a giveaway. This is a brand-new pair, unworn. This would be a great gift for a little girl (or boy) on your gift list. They fit Spenser, who is four, and would probably fit any age child. [I tried them on (not these, but Spenser's pair) and, while I have thin calves, they felt a little tight on me. I think it's the strings from the red that restricted full stretchability.]

All you have to do is leave a comment on this post. I don't have any high demands. I'm not going to make you link back to me to be able to enter. Just leave a comment here. If you would like, help spread the holiday cheer by leaving a positive comment. It could be, "Hey! I lost a pound this week!" or "I found a penny yesterday and it was heads up." I will randomly select a winner on Sunday evening, around 7-ish, EST.

Good luck and happy weekending!

The winner of the Holiday Legs is Myrnie, lucky #13 (number picked unbiasedly by Joe). Congratulations, Myrnie. Please send me your mailing address, and I'll pop them in the mail on Monday morning.

Thanks for playing along, friends. Stay tuned for another giveaway later this week.

I love reading your blog. I too am a mom of 6 - and can relate to a lot of things that you blog about. I LOVE the candy cane legs and have a 4 year old little girl that would love them more!!!

If that girl gets any cuter...!!!

And I lost 2 pounds this week, but don't tell anyone, because I am a closet dieter.

Those are so cute and I know the perfect little girl who would look adorable in them. She's the little girl that my 4 year son has declared he will marry and live in our house with and take to Chick-fil-a everday. He told me that he just knows this in his heart. Oh, how I love that boy : ) It helps that her mom is one of my best friends. Thank you for the wonderful giveaway.

Love them! But where are you finding these leggings? I have looked all over my local wal-mart with no success. My daughter is 3 and would adore them, thanks for offering the giveaway! :)

diana said...

Those are wonderful! How do you stand all the cutness?

Rory said...

Ahhhh I LOVE those!! My 2 1/2 year old might fit into them this year, but for sure next year.

happy thought: 16 more days until baby girl #2 is here!!

Erika said...

What fun! I love the stripeys. My daughter insists on wearing skirts most days of the week (no, she's not ladylike...it just gives her more "freedom of movement" I think.)

Happy news...our old house sold! (And my baby can sleep on her back now without spitting up and gagging every 20 minutes.)

mlc2boys said...

Thanks for all of your great ideas! I recently found your blog and you have become my new favorite study break. You inspire me to stay busy crafting to stay sane- if you can do it with 6, I can do it with just 2! Though I must say that there are much cuter ideas for girls- my 2 boys would not don legwarmers if I paid them!! Happy Holidays!

Jennylou's Projects said...

My 2.5 year old would love those! So cute!

Madre Adoptiva said...

Those are just adorable! My girls would fight over them for sure. Thanks for being willing to part with them!

Those candy cane legs are really neat! You made those?
By the bye, I hope you are not in a hurry to replace your opening shot of the kids at the Lake any time soon, Winter or no. I love the look of the sun and their faces.

I know a wee girl who would love them.

Let's see... I washed the dog today with baby shampoo. He smells like strawberries now!

Bridget said...

How cute are these? I love them! I'm sure my 4 girls would love to fight over them ;o).

TinkerBlue said...

YThe rudolph pair are my favourite. And I love her red sparkly (?) shoes.

kirsten said...

oh man, i have a girl who would think candy cane legs are the perfect winter accessory!
those are TOO cute, lera!

Beth said...

Is it weird that I am 32 and I want candy cane legs??

Holly said...

Oh, how cute are those? Darling...the legs and the girl! You are so sweet to do a giveaway right now while your doing your own family holiday preparation.

Let's see...something fun...my daughter made her first gingerbread (graham cracker) house yesterday. One M&M for the house, two M&Ms for the girl...

Bonnie and Ash said...

So pretty!


I would love these for my wee 2 year old. I HAVE lost weight this year! 15 kilos (not too sure on the pounds???) since the end of July! Feel much better, but still have a wee way to go.

My positive message however is how lucky are we to have healthy happy children! My baby girl #2 is out of hospital after a harrowing time, and I can now get Mama-kisses and huggles from both of my we gems all the time.

And a message from my two year old trying to learn we wish you a merry christmas 'we wish you a christmas a happy new ears' hehe

Merry christmas everyone from New Zealand!

MB said...

I love your blog. I am a lurker. but I love the leggings and I have a 4 yr old cutie too. :) She would look soo soo cute in them.

As for my happy thought. I am happy because my husband is returning home from Idaho, donated his talents to a member of our church- return missionary for his wedding/sealing. (Hes a photographer) And I miss him soo soo much, but he is in route home and will be back with us tonight!! Were from Orlando. I am proud of him but still miss him!!

Diane said...

Hi Lera! Don't enter me in the drawing (don't think those would fit me!), I just wanted to say hi and I hope you're having a wonderful lead up to Christmas. Oh, and I did lose a pound last week. Yay for me!!!

Kim said...

Those are way too cute. You always make such pretty things.

"The Fam" said...

So cute! I've got 4 girls at home and finding one that will wear these won't be a problem! Thanks for the chance!

Alisa said...

How about... I just got together with a friend for coffee who I haven't seen in over two years. (she moved away when we were 19, we're still friends.)

I LOVE your candy cane legs and so would my girls. I'm so glad for you that you have a girl!

Martha said...

I made some baby legs after your post on them and my 4 year old loves them. She and I are also "skirt people!"

amandajean said...

I so love the candycane legs! you did a nice job on them. I did lose a few pounds this week! yipee!

Sara said...

I love your blog! I am drinking eggnog with my lit Christmas tree in the background while reading about those adorable holiday legs, my little one would love them!

Lisa said...

I would love to be entered into the contest!! My little girls would love these!
This is my first time here and I have to say that even before the home page loaded, I was laughing.. Trips to the School Nurse... That is so funny!! Poor Carter... either sick alot or accident prone?

The Georgia Peaches said...

I love it. Candy Cane leggings. They would bring a lot festive cheer to our household.

Tiffany said...

they are adorable...count me in

Diane said...

These candy canes are the best and cutest "legs" yet! I definitely want a pair, but if I were to win, these would go to Charlotte. If we lived closer, I'm sure our girls would be matching legs buddies :)

Holly said...

I think my little sweetie would look pretty cute in those! I know your daughter sure does!!!

stitchin' girl said...

I love your blog!! We have a 7 yo daughter who would simply love to wear those leggings - probably everyday!

Andrea said...

My daughter would LOVE these.

jenny said...

Oh, I GAINED a pound (or 3) this week. Blame all the goodies I have been baking and eating since Thanksgiving. When it gets to the point that I can't buckle my jeans, I'm trouble!

I have a 6 year old, a 4 year old AND a 2 year old girl that would love these! But mostly, I bet it would be the 4 year old. Great giveaway!! Thanks for the fun!

Tori said...

I love those. I'm not entering, but they are so cute!

Kris said...

Well, I don't want the holiday legs, but couldn't resist saying how fantastic they look! Completely the wrong type of gear for Christmas here in Australia! My positive comment is that I was able to buy a nativity set this weekend. One I have been wanting since last Christmas and it is just beautiful! I am so happy. Pop on over to my blog if you want to see it!

Gail :) said...

I adore the candy canes. Where did you find the reindeer socks?
My little boy turned 1 today!

Kristi said...

Those are adorable!
sadly I haven't lost any weight, and I am not ready for christmas- yet, but I love Christmas and all the treats that go along with it! yay, Christmas!(hence the haven't lost any weight problem!)

L & H & Q & E said...

Darling, darling, darling. My sister found your blog and now I love it, too.

My daughter (4th birthday next week) would love those candy cane legs! We get into conspicuous clothing around here (dots, stripes, dots and stripes together) and these would be just her style.

My positive comment of the day is that I have *not* lost a pound this week (or any preceding weeks, either), but like myself just fine anyway.

Happy Christmas!

Sam D. said...

I love you blog and has given me a ton of ideas for my daughter. We have made the tutu and painted pumpkins in chalkboard paint. Thank you!
