Happy New Year! I love January - it's my birthday month, and a time for fresh starts. Too bad it's so cold. Maybe I should head down-under for my birthday each year! Wouldn't that be nice!

Drumroll .... I kept track of the comments as they came in during the month of December. Today I had my kids each pick a number between 1 and 72 (the number of comments I received), and I also had my daughter's friend who spent the night pick a number ... so we have 3 winners and the winners are:

#48 - Joanna (12/22 comment)
#10 - Vicky (12/4 comment)
#3 - Karen (12/2 comment)

I will be in touch with you - if you don't hear from me, please leave me a comment with your email address so I can send you something!

My month of blogging was fun, and would have been better if I wasn't wrestling with the computer so much. I really appreciate all my friends - both local and cyber - who visit me here regularly. You are the best!!!

I've enjoyed reading your blog and also your posts on the forum Michelle, you are a delight.

I'm wishing you and your family all the best this coming year in 2008 and a Happy Birthday when it comes this month.

Sorry I didn't let you know sooner but I received my beautiful prize. THANKS!!!! I hope to post receiving it on my blog in the next couple of days. I am so behind in posting there. DH is off nights and has been home for the last 4 days so needless to say, not much has gotten done around here.
