Excuse Me While I Freak Out!

This week I was contacted by the Media Editor of Parents magazine and told that I am their Huge Gift Guide Prize Package winner. Can you even imagine?

After using the local food pantry for the holidays over the past four years this is unbelievable to me. I plan on providing gifts to as many of my friends and family as possible who have been there for me over the years. There are been very loyal friends who gave my kids extra every year because they knew we couldn't. Christmas morning in my house has always been amazing but the past 4 years have shown me what true Christmas Spirit is really about. As I wrote to the strangers who bought gifts for my kids the last 3 years, "long after my kids believe in Santa, I will be able to tell them that there really is one and it lives in everyone."

Last week I mentioned that if you are not blog giveaways you are loco. Now, I am going to add, if you are not entering blog giveaways you won't be able to "Freak Out" as I am.

Please visit and buy from the following sponsors who donated gifts to the Goodblog's giveaway.
