Bloggy Giveaway Carnival...

I am so very excited to participate in the Bloggy Giveaway Carnival! If you aren't familiar with it, please visit Shannon at Rocks In My Dryer. Gettysburg Family is happy to offer eight postcards of Gettysburg, PA. These could be useful for a Civil War buff or homeschool family learning about the Battle of Gettysburg. Somebody much craftier than myself could probably do something pretty snazzy with them.

The postcards include: a cannon at sunset, a plethora of monuments, Eisenhower National Historic Site, the Irish Brigade Monument, the Jennie Wade House, more monuments (we have an awful lot of monuments around here...), the G. Weikert House, and Friend to Friend.

So, leave a comment to be entered into the Gettysburg Family Postcard Giveaway. We welcome international comments, too! (Jana, I'm talking to you!) And, oh- before you go, please click on home down at the bottom and browse around Gettysburg Family a bit. Get to know the cast of children and vote in Name That Offspring over on the right. Thanks for visiting!

And please excuse all of the exclamation points, but I'm very excited!

Oh, we sooooo could have used these last year when my kids made scrapbooks of the Civil War!!! Of course we do have a few blank pages in the back and these would make a great addition. What a unique idea for a giveaway, that would have been such a great addition to our project. I wish I would have known you last year and had you mail us some. I would love to be entered in your giveaway.

One of my favorite spots!!! I'm so jealous. I made my husband take me to Gettysburg on our honeymoon 11 years ago. We walked the Charge Field early in the morning. It was great.
