Your Gift

Well, because CFHusband was leading by over 400 votes when voting closed at 9pm last night at DevineCaroline.com, I'll assume that we'll be awarded the $250 gift card (I'll wait until the official results are revealed to be sure).

Although the gift card won't be presented until early next year, Tricia and I will set aside a few hours sometime soon to take a trip to purchase $250 worth of toys to deliver to our local Toys for Tots (see This Post for the back-story)!

Thank you so much for helping to make our blog known to more people, and especially for giving us this opportunity to be a blessing to local children who may otherwise not experience the joy of opening a gift on Christmas morning. Consider this your gift to these kids.

It goes without saying that my blog readers are the best!!!
