We Have A Winner! (and One Happy Grandma!)

Thanks so much to everyone who stopped by my blog and entered my give-away! I so appreciate your comments and hope that you will all stop by again. The winner was determined the old-fashioned way. I put all of the names in a bowl, one time for each way you qualified, and gave the bowl to my 5 year old. He took out one folded paper, and the winner is.....Gina from Home Joys! Congratulations, Gina, I will contact you via your blog!

A couple of weeks ago, my older son phoned. "Mom, are you sitting down?" My first thought was that another grandchild was on the way, but that wasn't the case. What is the case: my son and his family are moving back to this area! They moved about 7 hours away from us when my granddaughter was 7 months old, 8 years ago now. You have no idea how hard it was when that moving van pulled away! Now, he has accepted an offer within the same company and will return with his family sometime in the next few weeks. Needless to say, I am one happy grandma!! My two precious grandchildren will be back in town for me to spoil!

Thank you for following my blog! I have a big brother that is almost 13 years older than me and I love it. It's so much fun to have a really "big" brother! So glad they are moving closer to you!
