Hard to believe that I have reached my number 100 post! (blowing whistle and donning party hat in honor!!!) Join me in this celebration! For the comments left on this post from now thru Saturday ending 12:00 noon CST. I will draw a ah i mean Princess Maddysen, the official name drawer at our house, will draw a name from within her tiara and I will create a name bracelet for that person...(strands up to 4) for the winner! the pictured bracelet has two names for example. Good luck!

It is very cold here and actually feels like Christmas! It began today at 7 degrees...brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...shiver shiver! We were suppose to get 2-4" of fluffy white again but it was supposed to start at 4...still nothing...traffic flowing smoothly.
Everyone have a wonderful evening and remember to leave a comment!
