Three Years - Winner announced!

Today has been quite a day and tomorrow I will blog about it! today! 

Eli's third birthday is today!  I do not know where three years have gone.  I miss my boy! 

Happy Birthday to you baby!

In honor of Eli's birthday Pet Art Creations is hosting a giveaway on my blog. We had fun drawing the winner. 

There were six entries:
 I folded the names and put them in a box.  Then I called my boys for a little help.
 Cooper held while Jay drew. Notice Jay's shiny new grin.  It will be his for the next 36 months. 
 Cooper got the honors of unfolding and reading the name. He was happy! He makes me happy.  Actually all of my babies make me happy, even on days like this one! (more on that tomorrow)

 Here is the name he read to me.  Then I had to snap a picture of it for good measure!
Yay Susan!  You are the winner!  I will give your name to Andrea and if you will contact her through Pet Art Creations' Facebook page, you can work everything out! 
Thank you all for entering our giveaway!  I might just have to make Eli's birthday, giveaway day every year!  It was fun! 
Many thanks for all of the prayers and beautiful words we received today!  These days are extra hard but I am feeling extra blessed tonight!
Much love,

Okay, forget the rafflecopter!  I dislike it A LOT!!! It is showing that there are five entries in the giveaway but will not show me who the entries are! I am going to try and reclaim those entries somehow.  I sent a message to the moderator of the website and have not heard back YET!  I am unhappy. 

Here is what I am going to do.

Birthday Month

Update: I just noticed that this post had disappeared from my blog.  I do not know how or why, but I re posted it and it seems to be on again.  Sorry for any inconvenience.

Wow, hello to all of you, my long lost friends.  September 4th was my last post. I do not know where time has gone!  I have sat down to type several posts in the in between and nothing seemed right.  I have missed my little corner of the world wide web!  It feels good to visit with you I have been away from home on a vacation and come home.  If that  makes any sense?

Since we have not spoken in way too long and because it is Eli's Birthday month, I think I will have a little giveaway.  Bribing you to be my friends, perhaps?  NO, NOT AT ALL. Just showing you how much I love you. 

This month is Eli's birthday month and I wanted to do something special.  Andrea, over at Pet Art Creations agreed to give some blessed individual a really cool gift.

Andrea is a digital artist and she created this picture for me. She is also my daddy's sister. She took an image that I had taken and created this really cool scene around it.  I just love it!  Isn't is adorable? She even added a picture of Eli in the clouds.  How special!! I love how Amelia appears to be enthralled with the star fish.  It is just way cool! Wouldn't you like one of these?

Or what about this adorable baby? Do have a pet you would like to see in one of Andrea's incredible scenes?
I just can't handle the cuteness in this one!!

We will be giving away one digitally enhanced photo on Eli's birthday! Andrea will take one of your photo's, digitally enhance it, and have it put on an 8 x 10 canvas.  Yes, I said canvas. It just keeps getting better doesn't it? This is a $90 value.  Thank you Andrea for sponsoring this sweet giveaway!
