Share your Moments of Joy and win great prizes (Giveaway ends 12/10/12) #FPMomentsofJoy

I never realized how the simple thing in life can bring you such great joy until I became a parent. Suddenly things like a giggle, your daughter trying on your shoes (which are huge on her tiny feet) and the look on a child’s face when he wakes up Christmas morning and finds that Santa has paid a visit, become more precious to you then anything else.

As a parent we experience so many moments of pure joy. Most parents try and capture these sweet moments in pictures and on video. Moments such as their child’s first steps, first haircut and first day of school. Personally I have photo albums bursting open with photos of my kids, not to mention more CDs full of pictures then I can count.

Fisher-Price would love for you to share your Moment of Joy on their new Moments of Joy site (it just launched today!). They are also having a sweepstakes in honor of the launch. From today (11/27/12) until December 20, 2012 when you upload photos and videos that show your special Moments of Joy with your child you will automatically be entered to win one of five weekly $100 gift cards, or possibly the grand prize which is $1,000 worth of Fisher-Price toys!

Fisher-Price toys have always brought me happiness and joy, even when I was a young girl. I am especially into the Fisher-Price Little People. I actually collect them. I even have my original sets from when I was a young girl, including my wooden Little People figures.

There are very few photos of me (long story). I was surprised that many of the photos that I do have show me playing with Fisher-Price toys.

I wonder if these moments brought joy to my Mom and Dad?

I have so many moments of joy from my own children. I went ahead and uploaded several photos on the Moments of Joy website.

Uploading photos and video is very easy. You can also write a description about the Moment of Joy that you shared. I am enjoying viewing the photos and videos and learning more about the back story behind them. It’s very sweet!

You can even check out the site to look for your own photos and video. I searched and found a few of mine.

Here is a screen shot of two of them.

One photo shows my husband, daughter and dog fast asleep. They were watching TV and they all dosed off, even the dog. I thought it was very sweet. 🙂

The other photo shows my daughter (in the blue shirt) on TV. She won an essay writing contest and had the opportunity to read her essay on TV and was interviewed. That was an awesome moment of joy (and a very proud parent moment too!).

Here are a few other photos I shared on the Moments of Joy website. You might even seen them displayed on the screen if you visit the site.

My kids being silly.

Random moment with my kids. They looked so cute together.

I love this photo. We took the same photo a few years later and it was fun to see how much our son has grown. He’s taller than me now. It’s time to take another photo like this.
