We Have Two Winners!

First I want to say thank you so much to each and everyone that left a comment on the Penny For Your Thoughts. I enjoyed each one of your Christmas memories. It's good to reflect back on the simple joys of life.

Danny had the honor of picking the two names from the bucket!

The winner of the finished Penny ornaments is Kimberly and this is her Christmas tradition:

One of our traditions is a "Christmas Vacation" night... yes, we are a truely warped family!
Everyone tries to come in costume (one year my dad was Uncle Lewis, with a stogie and burnt up suit jacket), we do food like in the movie (green jello with cheerios instead of cat food on top, wrapped in a Christmas box anyone?), and our centerpiece is a huge tangled ball of the large Christmas lights (got a little knot here, Russ. It's a little dangerous, but so cool!

If I win this giveaway, I will even post a picture of my hubby dressed as Eddie, in the scene where he's emptying the rv's tank into the storm sewer... he'll kill me, but that's a sacrifice I'm willing to make! pick me!

Kimberly....I'll be looking forward to the picture as promised!

Next the winner of the ornaments all cut out and ready to be stitched is Lea of Farmhouse Blessings and this is what she wrote:

One of our favorite Christmas traditions is "brother's night" on Christmas Eve. That is the night that our 3 boys exchange their little gifts for each other. It is a chance to share their love with each other and focus just on each other without getting lost the festivities of the Christmas Day. It has truly become a very special part of Christmas for both Jeff & I and our boys.

What a lovely idea!

Now be sure to check back in just a few days cause it's a time for giving and I do really enjoy these giveaways more than you will ever I plan on giving away something every few weeks until Christmas!

Happy Trails....Ginger

Thank you Ginger for such a fantastic giveaway.
I loved the special memories everyone posted.

Kimberly said...

WOO HOO!! I have to figure out how to do this without "Eddie" finding out...hmmmm...

Thank you Ginger! I can't wait to see those beauties for real!

Blessings, Kimberly
