The winner of the birthday giveaway is……..

 

James-1

My brother-in-law James, who actually teased my sister Ashley about stacking the deck yesterday. I am happy you won, James, for many reasons….but mostly because it meant I got to put a tiara on your head. I hope this means your luck this week is improving!

As a side note, Ashley had more than 20 entrances in the drawing.  Can I tell you how much I love my sister for always reaching out by commenting? I don’t blog to get comments, but it is always nice to know that someone out there is reading.

Each of your comments from yesterday’s giveaway was put on a heart and left on my mom’s lawn in the dead of night last night for one of her classic “heart attacks.”  Thank you to Sabina for cutting all the hearts out.

Thank you so much to everyone who has commented and contributed to this celebration of my mom.  Every word written will be cherished!

I would have loved to put a tiara on your head Bill. I am sure it would go will with another picture that I heard is floating around of you...Erin or Jenny had it?

Aw, you are just the sweetest person on the planet. I seriously want to be you someday! Great birthday goodness!

Katie said...

Don't be fooled Olivia, don't be fooled :)

I do look good in a tiara :)

Seriously though Katie this was a crazy cool idea. I know it was a ton of work but what a payoff. I can only imagine how happy your mom is.

If I manage to wrap a gift for my folks I'm pretty proud of myself. You really deserve major kudos for recognizing a very special lady.

Yay! He needed something good today after the wreck yesterday!

what a wonderful family you have---and what a tribute to you that so many people responded to your request---and what a wonderful tribute to Linda! The best present for a mom is for her kids to be great.

Man, I never ever win raffle type things. I can have like 100 entries and still won't win. But we don't have a Coldstone anyway, so that's okay :)

I like getting comments and I leaving comments. I don't do it out of pity or anything- I just like to add my two cents to everything. :) Lately I haven't been commenting on blogs that I usually comment on because I am often surfing through blogs while holding Claire, so I only have one hand available!
