Now tell me one thing we have in common….
I am giving away a book I just finished today..It was a read I could not put down…
Without a Word by Jill and Jim Kelly, the former QB for the Bills.  Talk about a story of redemption.  I will draw from just this post. I will announce the winner on Friday. 
Be sure and check out
A BABY CHANGES EVERYTHING  tomorrow for a picture of the fall wreath.  It’s finished and on the door but too dark to get a good picture now… also there is a drawing tomorrow (Sunday) night for another selection of  ornaments! You could be the winner.  I guess I just love a giveaway.
Better get my little men to bed….It’s after midnight.  We have had such a fun day.  Unfortunately I passed the bug I had on to my man.. 
If you do nothing else today READ THIS POST! Very powerful.

Kelly @ Blessed Mommy, Blessed Wife said...

What a fabulous post!!! I just adore your blog :)

We have a lot of these in common! The kids...Disney...pajamas...a clean house...seriously, the list goes on an on! Maybe that's why I adore reading your blog, he he! The one about giving Parker $20 melted my heart. I pray my mom and mother-in-law are always as close to my kids as you seem to be to your littles. What an amazing relationship (and one that I was never fortunate enough to have this side of Heaven).

P.S.
I got my ornaments in the mail yesterday and they just made my day! I love them and can't wait to put them on my tree. Not to mention, the box that they came in is awesome and will definitely be put to good use. Thank you again for the great giveaway and for lifting my spirits. You are a gem!
