"A Celebration"

(by U2)

Bono is joining us for a little celebration today!


And what are we celebrating, you ask?

First of all, this is my 300th post!!


Secondly, and just a little more exciting, I have some news about a little something I mentioned in December...



If we're facebook &/or IRL friends, you may already know...



I was going to wait until I had the official link to prove it...



But I just can't wait any longer...



{No, I'm no pregnant!}



OUR FAMILY PHOTO WON SHUTTERFLY'S HOLIDAY PHOTO CONTEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Can you believe it?! I found out on Monday, and I'm still a little shocked! There were a lot of really great photos in the contest, and ours was simply taken with my point-and-shoot on self-timer! Every penny of the prize money is going toward our medical debt, and I am just so thankful to God for providing for us in this way! There's no way we could've won without Him & the support of our amazing friends! I owe a huge debt of gratitude to so many of y'all who voted and re-posted the link on facebook. It brought tears to my eyes countless times when I saw my friends' posts & the kind words they had to say about my family. Several friends even told me that their friends had re-posted the link! {People whom I've never even met!} I could really feel the love & support from so many people. I am so honored not only to have won the contest, but to have such amazing friends!

[They finally posted it on the contest home page. Check it out!!!]
