Grains of Gratitude and Contest Winners


1. Well first of all I'm grateful for mothers! My own and my mother-in-law! I'm blessed with having such a wonderful mom, and for having a great relationship with my MIL. I know not everyone gets along with their MIL so I realize how lucky I am!

2. I'm grateful for the yummy breakfast Joe made this morning! We had Strawberry-Banana Crepes.

3. I'm grateful for the photo album Barbara of Mommy Life put together for Mother's Day. It's a great testament about mom's and their kids who have a little something extra. Click on the slideshow to get the full effect.

4. I'm grateful that our Silent Auction for our MOPS fundraiser went so well. We were able to raise a lot of money and the community was generous in their donations. For $12 I won 10 free ice cream cones from McDonalds and a $15 gift card to Oasis Pizza - works for me!

5. I'm grateful for the fun time we had on Friday night at the Enlisted Club for the monthly "Kiddie Disco Buffet." The Club has also started a Margarita Chip/Salsa Bar on Friday evenings. So us ladies stole away for a little bit for some margaritas.

6. I'm grateful to Sue for nominating my blog for a Bloggers Choice Award! Thanks Sue!

So now here is my little assistant drawing the winning names for the books! I may not have made it clear when I posted about the contest, but I'm drawing 5 names for each of the books instead of 1 name for all the books - that way more chances of winning!


Congratulations ladies! I'll be contacting you for your addresses.

Happy Mother's Day to everyone out there!

What a great way to pick for the books....and give Kayla a hug for me for drawing my name!!!! lol. Also I watched the video of the Mothers with DS babies and it was truly beautiful. I think they are the most precious children in the world...and anyone can see they are so full of love. I hope you are having a wonderful Mothers Day Michelle...because you truly are a wonderful Mother.

DeAnna said...

Happy Mothers Day!! I'm so excited that Kayla picked my name! I never win anything, she is now my lucky charm. :) The crepes sound wonderful. My sweet husband cooked me breakfast, but nothing like that. Any breakfast I don't have to make is appreciated and my husband will be the first to admit he is no cook. :)

Michelle said...

Happy Mother's Day to you too, BTW! :)
