Forgive the two small blips at the start of this very short piece. If you watch to the end you are sure to agree with us that Cboy has real potential as a future Chippendales dancer. You guys are ALL winners!

OMG!!!! Your kids are so cute!!!!!!!!

My daughter came down to watch with me because she heard me screaming and woohooing!!

I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!

Even if I didn't win, I absolutely love the video and the costumes. And the music, too.

Okay, but I did WIN!!!!! yay me! yay Lorrie! Yay, Lorrie's adorable family!!!!

My daughter is here next to me criticizing my tyoing skills. I expect her to take over any minute now.

She now firmly thinks I'm crazy. She might be right. Then again, she's just trying to get out of cleaning her room.

If she doesn't watch out, I'm posting pictures of her room tomorrow. That'll show her. :-)

kwr221 said...

Yay, Miss Thystle to!!!!!!!

And Fe (?)

kwr221 said...

Yes, your prolific commenter is BAAACCCKKKK.

My DD made me watch the video 3 times and b=now she wants to make her own video.

kwr221 said...

Yes, darnit, it's me again.

I just HAD to mention that this watch is PERFECT, as I'm and ish kind of gal.

Drives my dear husband batty, because except for catching a train or plane, 5 minutes early and 5 minutes late is all good to me. (My sincere apologies to those who are more precise and have had to wonder where I am)

Lorrie Veasey said...

This is cboy. thank you kwr221

kwr221 said...

cboy - you ROCK!

How old are you again?

My beautiful and witty daughter is 10. ;-)

T R L said...

Wow, I'm concerned for Cboy's future. But I guess if you've got it flaunt it right?

Dissapointed I didn't win, should have stacked the deck in my favor.

Bj in Dallas said...

ok, how much is the damn watch?
remember Lorrie, I told you always a bridesmaid.......
I think I'm an usher at this point
But Ed McMahon says you can't win if you don't enter, so I'll be trying again.
Tell your flock to look at the beer glass contest over in my hood
and there WON'T be a video-
Kips hair looked good today, and I love the toaster, kleenex, wine bottles behind CBoy and TB while they danced- they are cutie pies1

ThreadBeaur said...

How fun was that! I think that was the best winner announcement ever!

Spatula said...

That was awesome! Your childrenz are adorable! Although there was a very short, but terrifying moment when I wondered if CBoy was about to strip, seeing as how he was disrobing to music :-D

Then I hired a private detective to find me my innocence as I obviously need it back.

kip said...

Cboy is 7 and he very well may have disrobed had we not cut off the tape.

kwr221 said...

Oh, we can't have that.

And nevermind about my daughter, she's too old for Cboy and I wouldn't want her to be a corrupting influence.

danandmarsh said...

Can someone tell me who won, my sound wasn't working on the video!
Awesome announcement!

~*~Jenni~*~ said...

What a fun way to announce the winners of the contest!!!

Even if I didn't win, it sure was fun watching the performance!

Miss Thystle said...

I love Bananna's maribou! And Cboy's hat? SO fetching! I'm all for Big Outfits and they are ROCKING them!

And, also? YAY!

Miss Thystle said...

I'm going to leave another comment, because I don't want you to think the KWR loves you more.

Miss Thystle said...

because she doesn't.

Tash said...

They rock..they simply rock! Love it!

sheila said...

Wow!! Cboy has some moves --

Congrats to all the winners. One day, maybe it will be me (sniff, sniff)...

Lorrie - tell us where/when we can buy the watches. Whatever or Ish, I don't care - love them both!

Debbie said...

Now this is a video worth watching and I didn't even win. Great kids. Mine would have never done that in a million years. Yes sir, you will have to watch that son of yours. He is gonna break some hearts.

kwr221 said...

Yes I do. :-)

PearlsOfSomething said...

The video soothes the rawness of my loss.

My eventual order should cover the cost of Chippendale lessons. You're welcome.

Kristen smells.

kwr221 said...

Oh, I *know you're talkin' 'bout ME.


kwr221 said...

Oops, I meant NOT talking about me


kwr221 said...

danandmarsh - In case you haven't figured it out:

I (me,me,me) was a WINNER, along with the fantabulous Miss Thystle (who, bytheway, doesn't love Lorrie NEARLY as much a I do), and Fe, who I haven't had the pleasure of meeting yet.

And where is she? Does she know she's a winer yet?

And PearlsofSomething? Don't listen to HER, I do NOT smell.

orrie, have I boosted your stats yet? I'm really trying to make up for lost time this past week.

I think my work here is done.

You're welcome.

kwr221 said...

Here's the missing "L"


PearlsOfSomething said...

I almost double checked my i/e situation first. But I was too bitter.

I will stalk you and steal your prize.

kwr221 said...

Maybe if you come to Chicago, I'll let you borrow it.

September 26-28 bay-beee!

Debra W said...


I was smiling the whole time that I watched this. your family is adorable! Congratulations to the lucky winners!



I have been wanting to thank you for that very sweet note you wrote me. The feeling is mutual, except that I think you are officially the funniest person that I know in Cyberspace!


Fe said...

Wha..... wha..... wha...... what ME???

But I never win ANYTHING! This is terribly exciting!


Oh, and it's Fe, rhyming with he, me, be, we etc. Short for Fiona. Just spelled different (I was young and not interested in the written language once...). (Never been called Fhe before though.... not bad! Thanks Kip. I may keep it)

No prize on earth could be as wonderful as watching the announcing of the winners by your family though. Just brilliant. What kind of dancing does your son watch? I want to force feed it to my boys. All that training and not a "swivel hip whilst slipping jacket off shoulder" move in sight. You are to be congratulated!

kip said...

sorry Fe (rhyming with he, me, be, we etc.) I kind of like Fhe.

zakary said...

Awesome. Your kids are rockstars!

pogonip said...

Your kids are so cute! Loved the video. Congrats to the winners.

kwr221 said...

Okay, my NewBestestFriendEvah - do you need my address again, or do you have it? ;-)

And, when can we see more of the Veasey Family Awesomeness? Your kids could be Broadway bound and your DH is a good sport

Just like me ... said...

you and your darling family have just made me smile SO BIG !!! ya and my best to you all :) le

Lorrie Veasey said...

Because I went to the Cathy Hilton (mom o Paris) school of Mothering, CBoy read every single comment and would like to thank you all. And add-Goodnight Detroit-You Are Awesome!

I have sent out the prizes-thanks to all who enetered. Obviously mutiple comments (ahem ahem) can help in the future. Look for another giveaway in a week or so.

Thanks so much for all your kind words about our family. You Guys Rock.

Blue said...

okay, i now personally believe that this method of picking a winner is FAR superior to's number generator.

So, unless countless myriads of people suddenly become interested in my simple little life and start leaving piles of comments, I'm adopting this.

Can I rent your kids for the event? ;-)

They're truly adorable...but you knew that already. It was just fun to get a glimpse of them directly, v. the image I'd developed of them via reading. Aren't kids the best!

♥ to you!
