I won!!!

I found out a couple days ago that I was blessed enough to win a giveaway, and today the package arrived!

The girls are always excited when packages arrive!

They wanted to unpack the box so bad....and how was I to resist these faces?

Wow, were we spoiled with wonderful goodies!!! Extras added for the girls, awesome socks and beautiful beaded bracelets! Kathleen took the bracelets out of the pack right away!

Who sent us these amazing things?? A huge THANK YOU to Julie! Julie is an amazing lady, with a wonderful blog that I love to read! Beautiful pictures, yummy recipes, history, etc. are just a few of many things you will find when you visit her blog.

Thanks to all of you who left me such thoughtful, caring comments and emails on my last post. I greatly appreciate all the friendships I have found through blogging.

Have a great evening!

Congrats! I am happy for you! I have won two giveaways & received a wonderful gift from another wonderful blogger. It has been so fun. To find others who we have never met in person that are as caring & giving is wonderful. The best has been to find friends along the way who offer their support & kind words. You & the girls enjoy all those great goodies. Blessings!

Hi Jill,
wow it looks like you and the girls hit the jackpot with all the wonderful stuff. Savannah is the same way when a pkg comes in the mail. Her great-aunt Jenny (my late husband's Aunt), will send her goodies during Easter, Halloween, and Christmas and Savy loves opening the pkgs.

I'm really enjoying your blog.
I agree with you too, on your former post about their messes, They're only little for a short time.
As my late husband would say when Savy was a baby and toys everywhere, he would pick stuff up at night and call it "Resetting" the game. He kept a sense of humor about it.

God bless you and yours!

Jill I hope you do read the book The Private World Of Tasha Tudor by Tasha Tudor & Richard Brown. It has been a fast read so far. You take so much care with reading to the girls I wanted to let you know she wrote children books. I have never read them but some are mentioned in this book. The first she wrote was Pumpkin Moonshine. Another Corgiville Fair. Just a few that have been mentioned in my reading so far. Thank you for such sweet comments to my last posts. Blessings!
