A birthday, a milestone & a giveaway


Today we have a special birthday in the Little Red Farmhouse ~ my baby is turning 12.  And yes, that makes me feel old!


He didn't ask for much but he did want a small "game night" party with friends.  That deserves some special cupcakes.  So... a boxed cake mix, store bought icing (no, I don't make everything from scratch!), precolored fondant, and boy's vivid imagination mixed with a little help via internet searching, and we have some fabulous cupcakes for a fabulous kid!







I thought it migh be fun for you to guess what they all are because...

This week the blog past the milestone of 100,000 page views and over 300 followers.  I never would have believed it!  I was just hoping to inspire a simple living ~ a country living.  It seems that a few of you are enjoying the journey.  So I will continue to share with you what we are discovering while living Life in a Little Red Farmhouse.  And to thank you, I will have a giveaway...

You know I love making farm signs and we have a few broken fence boards so I will custom make a sign for the winner. You will even get to pick what you want painted on it!



Welcome... Fresh Bread... Lemonade... Whatever you want!
You think it up, I'll paint it for you.

So the first one to comment with all 17 games correctly, wins a custom sign painted just for you! 
but don't forget to include this little guy too.


As always, thanks for visiting the Red Farmhouse!

  6. Cute cupcakes! I saw Battleship, Mousetrap, Pac-man.. and I'm going to be a loser because I am waaaay rusty on games. We used to play them a lot! Apparently I need to brush up :) Happy Birthday to your very handsome young man! -Tammy

  7. Countryman,
    Those were great guesses but a few misses. The green one with the red is tricky. One is a red house and the other is a red "road". Maybe that will help.

  9. Wow! I wouldn't have known half of them! I'm not surprised you have all these followers.... I love coming to visit too :)

  10. There is a card game, a strategy game, and a video game in there. {hint} Our 12 yr old would never go for a gingerbread man on his cake!

    lastly, the green with red is tricky - I'm thinking it could represent your "little red farmhouse". The colors don't match Life or other board games.

  18. Ok, I'm going to throw one of those out. Settlers of Catan is green with red house and road. It is a strategy game and is by far the hardest one to guess!

    Still with that gone, the list isn't quite right. Think card game and keep trying.

  19. As much as I love your signs (and I do mean love them), I'm not a very enthusiastic gamer, so I will just say Happy Birthday dear boy!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Can you identify which from my list is incorrect? :-) (I believe I know which one is wrong)

    Settlers of Catan? I've never even heard of it.

    Is it "Go Fish" or "War"?
