The Winner And Pictures Too!

As stated before, I am not great at giveaway etiquette. I spent about 40 minutes (priceless, priceless minutes since The Peanut is not very sleepy today!) trying to figure out what the best way to pick the random number out was....finally, I googled "How to pick a winner for a blog giveaway" and it took me to Random.Org. You'd think I'd be able to have figured something like that site out a bit sooner, but nooooooo....sleep deprivation is a powerful, powerful thing! (So not his fault, only because mommy has to wake him and feed him!)

Here's what I ended up with:
True Random Number Generator 28Powered by RANDOM.ORG

Looks like my Hannah's Prayer friend TINA is the winner!! Tina had sweet baby Grant in November...and we've been HP friends for nearly a year now! (Hard to believe, isn't it?) Tina, I know I have your address SOMEWHERE in FB, but if you email me, it'd be a lot easier for me to get the details for your bag! Congratulations! I had fun doing a giveaway...I might try and come up with more!

I have to say that after writing about all the love we've been shown in the last year or so, I realized that there were so many more things I could have added to the list...meals and visits and phone calls and letters and ornaments and pictures and coffee dates and hugs at the right time and simple opportunities given to me just to talk about Matthew and cry...again, I must say, we have been so, so loved and if ever I wonder why God might feel so far away sometimes, I close my eyes and a million ways He's shown us He's here exist in every kind deed and gesture and word given to us through so many wonderful people. I am grateful.

Here's a couple of pictures of Sweet Boy...he's getting more and more animated and more and more awake!!! He can make quite the expressions now. We didn't stay awake for Glee last night, but watched it together today and he loved, loved, loved singing and dancing together. Okay....maybe he didn't love me singing, but he loved dancing!


  1. Congratulations to Tina, and absolutely AWESOME pictures!!! Love them, love you, love your boys!!!

  2. First of all--Luke is too adorable! And I love that he loves GLEE!!!

    Secondly--OMG, I can't believe it! I almost posted in my comment that I *never* win...but look at me! :) I'll email my address to you.

    And finally--thanks be to God for a friend like you! It seems just like yesterday we *met* on HP and now we are holding our precious precious sons. I feel so lucky to have met a beautiful woman of God!!! :)
