Rename This Blog Contest/Giveaway

The Adventures of Team T-Lo had a good run. Two and a half years actually. But now it's time to retire the name and come up with a new one that includes our latest addition - Lane! Team T-Lo refers to Terry, Tawny and Logan. Lane's name doesn't fit in there, so it's time for a change.

I've been going through some names in my head, but haven't come up with the perfect one yet. So I thought I'd enlist the help of my loyal blog fans.

So I'm asking all of you to put your thinking caps on and come up with the new name of this blog. A name that captures the essence of this particular family and story. It doesn't have to be a Team name again if that doesn't work for you. Or it could be, if you prefer...

There really aren't any rules other than it has to be inclusive of the whole family or define the theme/intent of this blog. Any ideas?

Of course there is an incentive for you to start thinking. There are prizes for the successful person!

I have yet to work out all the details of the prizes, but they will include very Winnipeg-esque things like:

- Clodhoppers
- Slurpee vouchers

And I will throw in some handmade stuff that I'm working on (hopefully geared toward the personality of the winner). I might even have some T-Shirts made up with the winning blog name and banner on them that will send to the lucky winner. I will give you an update on the prizes if I come up with more fabulous things. But I assure you, all your thinking and creativity will not go unrewarded.

Now a little bit about how to enter:
- if you are familiar with this blog, then start thinking. If not, then read this blog and then start figuring out names that would be perfect for the new name.
- Please put a comment on this blog with your suggestions for a new name (there is no limit on the number of suggestions you make so go nuts)
- You can place a comment on this blog even if you don't have a blogger/gmail account by clicking on the comment button and following the instructions. Just please leave a way for me to get a hold of you should you win (example: email address)
- This contest is open to everyone around the world. I will ship the prizes to the winner wherever you might be.
- I will leave this contest open until Saturday September 12th at noon Central Time. Then the members of Team T-Lo (Terry, Logan and myself) will go through all the suggestions and choose a winner.
- I will announce the winner on Sunday September 13th whenever I get around to making a blog post.
- And if you are stopping by here for the first time to enter the contest or read some of the posts, why not follow? There is a button to the side for easy following. I love to get new fans!

And there you have it. Rename the blog and win a prize! Get to it!

***** OK So I was busy this afternoon and allowed you 3 extra hours. But now the contest is officially closed. We've enjoyed all the entries so much and it's going to be so hard to choose. Terry, Logan and I will go through them all and pick a winner. Stay tuned tomorrow for the official unveiling of the new blog! *****

Team T-Lo-La (obvious)

Lo-La-Tea (sound like a drink I'd order and the last two letters are derived from the combo of the first vowels of parents names)

LoLa-T Robot-y (would require the entire family to adopt an official family dance - the Robot, which would be so fun).

Team T-LoLa was the first thing I thought of too!

LoLa Geeks
Telo Tala
Tela Talo
Nuclear LoLa (because your household looks like a storybook nuclear family with one little boy and one little girl)

I'm sorry, my brain has switched off!
