Congrats to the winners! Thanks to the companies and folks who donated the prizes!

AND ....

As always ... the video (especially of the kiddos, no offense Dave! Hilarious! ) put a big smile on my face! Those little ones are just the cutest ever! I was shocked at how big Rosebud has gotten and laughed when I saw her little teeth when she smiled. Adorable family! Always fun to watch the winners announced on these videos!

And congrats to a member who has been with ATP for 1 year now ... GDJCB (Gale) who won 7th place! HE posts on the Daylily forum ... Smiling (Edited it from "she" to HE! lol!)

This is always my favorite part of the Not-a-Raffle Raffle. I see the 'filing system' of Raffle Boy has changed somewhat. It used to be the piggy toe system. As always it was a very enjoyable presentation. Congratulations to all the winners!

Thank you to each & every vendor who put up prizes and to HamiltonSquare who donated the book on salvias. Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

I am just loving the kids and how fast they are all growing. Superman & Superboy did great jobs as always. Dave you weren't too shabby either. Trish, good camera work.

I want to ask something @dave Why is Jon ineligible? I know he's a member of the family but if the reason is that people might think he has an "in" when the drawing is done -- I for one, would never believe there would be any nepotism practiced in regards to that on ATP. If I have any vote in the matter then I say Jon or any of the family is welcome to buy acorns like the rest of us. Okay, off my soapbox.

NOW, I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited about the ATP FOURTH anniversary celebration!!!!!!!!!!! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!
And I want to say right now to those members who donated acorns a very heartfelt THANK YOU. Thank You!

Congratulations to all the winners (almost all of whom I "know" from the forums that I hang out on... Smiling ). And thanks to Dave and Trish for once again sharing your family with us; what other website does anything like that? Thumbs up

But isn't this the 5th anniversary for ATP ?

Congrats to the winners! The sponsors of the drawing deserve a huge Thank You! as well! Those are awesome prizes.

And I just wanted to wave bye right back at the boys at the end Smiling It's obvious they enjoy the raffle drawings as much as we do and they are adorable. Rosebud will appreciate it soon enough and will then steal the show with her cuteness too.

Can't wait for the 4th of July acorn fireworks!
