THE WINNER IS KIMBERLY at KIMBERLY'S KORNER! Another card package giveaway later tonight. Just a random drawing tonight from comments that have come in today! (SUNDAY)

MY PARTY POST IS BELOW WITH THE BIG PRIZE, BUT WANTED TO HAVE A surprise GIVEAWAY TODAY. I AM DRAWING FOR A CARD PACKAGE and will ANNOUNCE THE WINNER at midnight (SAT) TONIGHT. This has become one of the favorite prizes that I give away on the blog. I have received some of the sweetest thank you notes from bloggers that have received card packages. I have probably given away 50. MY MISSION is to bring back SNAIL MAIL. It really does make a DIFFERENCE. You have a good chance to win this prize. This will be one of those RANDOM drawings that I talked about. The winner will come from the comments over the next four hours. Just GIVE THIS PICTURE A NAME and the one that is the cutest to me will be the winner. You can comment on either blog.
THIS PICTURE IS A LITTLE FUZZY. It was sent over the phone...but this is so my little JACK. IF you read or have read my blogs any, you know this little guy. He is a MESS. Stay tuned I may have another giveaway in the morning. Even if you have already commented, you can make another one....

First off I want to let EVERYONE KNOW that at the end of the BLOG PARTY, everyone that has visited this blog or A BABY CHANGES EVERYTHING, my holiday blog and leaves a comment will be eligible for a Gift BASKET valued at $100.00. I have owned a gift basket business for 19 years, so I promise it will be SPECIAL. I am really looking forward to making some new friends. I think that is what makes the blogging community SO SPECIAL!

This BLOG PARTY came at a PERFECT TIME. My new blog design is finally FINISHED. I love it, but I will say I am one that loves a new look often. Welcome to GRAMMY GIRLFRIEND. You are always welcome here and there are giveaways every week, just because I like to GIVE.
I am so glad that you stopped by. I have another blog that is my
HOLIDAY BLOG and I would love for your to stop by for a visit there also. I am a holiday decorator in Shreveport, La. That has been my main business for 20 years. This past season was such a fun time of
PAYING IT FORWARD. I had a chance to give tips, show pictures and answer questions on how to create BEAUTIFUL TREES..
I am a GRAMMY first and foremost. I am a wife of almost 38 years to the SAME MAN. I am the Mom to Greg and Amanda and the MIL to Micah and Dana. BUT my most favorite job ever is being GRAMMY to Parker, Jack, Austin and Grayson. My blog is full of the joys of our everyday life, travels and FUN. There are pictures of the littles that I ADORE on my sidebar. If you read my blog often, you will know these little men well.
We are DISNEY ADDICTS, so there are lots of DISNEY TRIPS. I am a lover of FOOTBALL, AKA BRETT FAVRE, so there are lots of football posts. We are a pretty ordinary family that is doing LIFE TOGETHER. I said it in my profile and it REALLY is the TRUTH.

I love our family and could be stranded on an island with just them and be perfectly happy forever.

I have blogged for one year and began thinking I would write one post, then two and now a year later I have written over 250 posts and have over 750 followers on the two blogs....I began writing wanting to document our lives in journal form and along the way have made the most fun and interesting friends. Totally blows me away. I do not have a clue why bloggers come back. And to make it a tad funnier, I know how to do VERY few things. I am learning, but how I envy all of you that really get blogging and know all the techniques.

So that's my story and I am looking forward to reading yours. I LOVE A STORY and we ALL HAVE ONE. Leave me a comment and let me know you stopped by and I will make a visit to your blog....

You can read about my family in the posts about each family member.

My Man, My Boy, My Girl (and that's a story in its self and the title of the (HOLIDAY BLOG). A few posts that got MANY comments are Meet Micah, PARKER, JACK ......and if you like these READ on.

This post has been long enough...LET'S PARTY. I would love for you to follow my blog. I am going to give some random prizes all through the week. Prizes I would love are list of prizes 11, 17, 39, 49, 54, 72, 79, 82, 87, 95, USC 3 USC 15, USC 25, USC 60

This is a chance to put snail mail into action. Many of you left comments of outrage at the recent tragedy in my town. Tragedy seems to trite of a word. THIS was a hideous act of a child predator, an animal. In most situations you want your rage to subside, in this case I want mine to remain and I want to think of ways I can be proactive in changing some very LAX laws. I received tons of emails. I even thought is was a post that might bring some controversy with it, but I had to post it. It didn't ....only the same passionate outrage as I had.

I am working on some of my own cards tonight and thought this might be a chance for you to bless a HURTING MOM and her family. I don't feel free to post her address, but if you would like to drop her a note, email me at and I will tell you how you can send it. The days ahead for her, after all the tributes are over,(the school had one today and there have been many over the past few days)are going to be a horrible new normal. Every picture, every home video she posts on her FB and tribute pages, breaks my heart again. This was such a loved and amazing little boy.
It's been 10 days now and I am sure the reality of the situation is just beginning to become REAL. I would love for her to know, that not only our community, but all over the nation that she is being prayed for. I don't know why some cases make it to the Fox and CNN prime time news. I have a feeling for every Elizabeth Smart (and what a beautiful example of a young lady) there are hundreds of other cases that we never hear about. Let's not be SILENT about this sick, evil beyond words, thing that is preying on and killing innocent children. Not one of us think it will ever be ours, but I would dare say that 10 days ago, Amy felt exactly the same way. Think about sending some love to a stranger.

SINCE I was GIVING a BIG PRIZE TONIGHT for EASTER, and since I have two little guys spending the night that could DRAW the winner, I decided to do a short post. I will have EASTER pictures and a great story tomorrow. Today, two year old JACK, with a SUGAR HIGH from EASTER candy has worn me out. WE did have a wonderful day and had my entire family all together at church...It does not get better than that.

But tonight I lost a crown that I quickly realized was connected to a bridge, so it will be off to the dentist first thing TOMORROW.
THE WINNER OF THE $100 BOX OF GOODIES is KRISTI at JUST SIMPLY SOUTHERN! This is a new blog to me and I love it. Stop by and say hello and look at her great frames.
Hope your Easter Day was SPECIAL!
