Conspiracy + Bowling = Baby Chicks?

When the Advent Conspiracy idea was presented at Blackhawk, my creative juices started flowing and it was exciting to plan to conspire! I came up with a conspiracy equation sure to please and inspire all involved: Conspiracy + Bowling = Baby Chicks…right? Read on for an explanation …

baby-chickEach week I cook for my extended family and a few friends – 11 to be exact, each Wednesday. So this week, instead of me cooking at my home, I announced that I am taking everyone to the bowling alley for their Christmas gift … fun and pizza! What a surprise for them! And another surprise hit when I said that for each strike and spare that all roll, I am going to “buy” a baby chick to give to those less fortunate than us through World Vision (haven’t World Visions catalogs been great this season?).

My family was so excited! And one of the attenders even said that they might have to donate a calf through the Heifer International for high and low scorers…sounds like a new tradition has been birthed!

Thank you Advent Conspiracy for the opportunity to share a new adventure with my family which may turn into a great new tradition of giving generously to those in need! Wish me luck as I scout the stores to find some kind of plastic baby chicks to use as a visual aide. Now that is the kind of Christmas shopping I love to do! Any ideas where I can find cheap little fuzzy chickens?

Here’s to conspiring and pointing to Jesus this Advent!  And let’s hope for lots of strikes and spares!

    You could go for the mini rubber duckies at bed bath and beyond. They’re ever so cute!
    What a great idea!! I love it!
