Hello and Welcome! A New Car, and some Winners!

First I want to say hello and welcome to all my new followers!! Thank you so much! I hope you will stop by often, take a look around, and enjoy what you find here! :) I sure love *meeting* new people online and finding out who all the wonderful people are out there that I haven't met yet! So I hope you'll leave a comment once in a while and say hi as well! :)

If you've been waiting to find out who the winners are to the Sew, Mama, Sew! Giveaways, you are in luck! But first I have to tell you about our weekend! Whoa. What a weekend! Last night we went to my husbands work party. What a hoot! The white elephant gifts that a few people brought were quite extreme... and then two people brought eReaders! I snatched one of those up as fast as I could, but unfortunately someone then snatched it from me. :( they were nice. ;) This morning we took off to Cedar Rapids (about 1 hour and 45 min drive) and bought our first car! What an experience. I learned a lot about buying cars, and luckily had some good help and pointers from my brother-in-law, but I'm still not a pro by far. The kids did fantastic!! (esp since they had no lunch and no naps. The salesman told us a few times that we were the most patient parents he's ever seen. HA! It was a miracle!!) :) Anyway, we now have a nice Town and Country minivan. yep. we are now minivan parents. I never thought the day would come. Ok, I did, but not this soon. I hope we like it forever! I am so tired though! (we left at 10:30 am and got home at 9:30 pm. It was a long day.)

So with that being said, (I just had to share our exciting news!) let's get onto the winners! Thank you all for your wonderful comments! I LOVED reading about all of your memories and traditions! I love this season! Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, I think there is something special about this time of year. So thank you for sharing your special moments with me. :)
