Thank you so much to all the gardeners who generously donated acorns!!!!!! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! I tip my hat to you.

I can't believe I was one of the winners! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

Congratulations to all the other winners. Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

A special thank you to ALL the Whitinger ladies from youngest to oldest. We sure enjoyed seeing you!

And of course, Raffle Boy!!! Gosh, he's talking so well & growing up way too fast. Then there's big boy who seems to be waiting in the wings. It seems like he has taken his role as understudy Raffle Boy quite seriously. Lovey dubby

And again, Thank you Dave & Trish for this fantabulous site. Without you we wouldn't be having such loads of fun! Happy Anniversary guys.

Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! OH MY GOODNESS....I WON ACORNS. That is the first time I have won anything for at least 5 years. HOW NEAT IS THAT! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Thank you for the acorns and thank you for that adorable video of the drawing.

That "Angel" on the swing caught my eye. She is just adorable. The young ladies and gentlemen who helped are without a doubt some of the cutest children I have seen in a long time. I wish I had them as my grandkids, wow, would I spoil them. This is just another example of how you, Trish, and you Dave, make us all feel like part of your wonderful family. Thank you for that. Again, thank you for the acorns....I promise to spend them wisely. Have a safe and wonderful day.

I can't believe I actually won....I am so excited.

Well this was a neat surprise! Smiling

When I checked my notifications and saw the 100 Acorn 's I was perplexed. I must have failed to read thoroughly enough to realize there even was a contest.

Thanks so much and a Happy Independence Day to everyone!
