It's Time!

Ok....sorry for making you wait, but we
were having such a wonderful Christmas Eve,
which we didn't want to end....

Sooo...I decided to make the draw this morning.

One little helper was more than eager to assist,
so, you all have him to thank!!

The first winner is... drum roll please

isn't my little helper just too cute..
don't mind he's still in his pj's
Oh right...he says pj's are too hot!
(sorry, he's not available!!!!)

Ok...on with it - the first winner is...

LINDSEY!'ve won the rice cooker, which will be hand delivered
to you this week, since I happen to know some very special
people who are coming up your way today!!
(but you can't keep them either)

And...our next winner will be...


AND... since this was so much fun,
I decided to draw one more name...



Diana and Brenda, you've both won a cookbook
and some PC tools, which includes
a mini spatula and mini whipper and either
a silicone basting brush or a skinny scraper
Contact me with your choices and I'll get those out to you.

So, thanks to everyone who entered my contest...I think I'll
have to do this again!
I enjoyed hearing about your brunch favourites and
look forward to telling you what we actually had!

Goodbyes and Giveaways

First of all, there are some old friends we need to say farewell to...

They've been residing here for many years
and it's now time to send them on to a new home.

Maybe some little one will be more than happy to take them in,
for they've been good here - made many a little one happy!

Hope we don't miss them too much...

Here they are...all cleaned up and ready to go
Thanks for the memories!

Now in the spirit of giving....
I want to give away a few Pampered Chef products.
I love my Pampered Chef....ALL of it, I do!
And, since my time of selling it is coming to an end,
and my house is feeling smaller all the time...
I have some stock to give away!

First, a rice cooker I haven't actually
used mine to cook rice yet, but those who bought it for it's intended use,
say it's wonderful.... ME? I make a pretty
awesome chocolate macadamia cake in it!
What can I say...I love chocolate!

The second is one cookbook (4 for you to choose from)
along with some of my favourite PC tools
(my choice...but will include a mini whipper
and mini serving spatula - two must-haves)

Now...all you have to do to enter is tell me....

What would be a must-have on your
Christmas morn brunch menu?

Come on now...I'm looking to add something new and wonderful
to our Christmas morning brunch.

I'll announce the winners on Christmas Eve!

Happy Birthday Smiley!!

Well, December brings with it a few birthdays in our family.

It wasn't necessarily our plan, but nonetheless,

of our children arrived in the snowy winter.

Today, the one everyone called 'smiley'
gets her turn to celebrate.

Having birthdays at Christmastime
can be a bit challenging.
20 years ago, I forgot this very important day!

With the hustle and bustle of the season
we skipped right on by the 20th....but not today!


May God bless you and your little family
and may you always have a smile
and warm heart to share :)

We Love You,
Mom & Dad
