Hurray! Hurray! Thank you for doing this. Love those kids. Dave did you see what your youngest boy did? In the beginning you put the tag on his pile and Rosebud had this funny look on her face. Brother saw her face and gave it to her. What a sweet boy . Thanks for sharing those sweeties with us.

Congratulations, all! And a huge thank you to all the vendors and members who donate such wonderful prizes I tip my hat to you.

I also really appreciate all the hard work that the Whitinger family puts in to make these raffles fun for all of us in the NGA community. These raffles have a lot of behind the scenes work that we never see. Thanks!!

I got an email from Dave and was thinking it was about a link issue or something. It didn't even occur to me that it was the raffle results. So to say that I was totally surprised to be the 4th place winner would an understatement. I am thrilled to be a winner and want to thank the generous vendors, the members here who have donated prizes or acorns, and to Dave and his little Raffle Team!

I must admit that watching the video .... made me feel like I was still at work in my PreK class! The students always make me laugh with the funny things they say. I nearly fell out of my chair laughing when Dave started noticing the "fog" outside through the window ....which quickly turned to the thought of possible smoke from something burning on the Whittinger property. (Not that it was funny about a fire, but the look on Dave's face as it changed from wonder to alarm was hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious! )

The children are always so adorable. The littlest 2 are sure growing fast. And the raffle boys are true "charmers"! What a beautiful family!!! Smiling

Congratulations to all the participants who make this NARR so much fun - the Whitinger family, the generous vendors and DND, as well as the folks who 'buy' the acorns and keep the action and excitement rolling. Congrats to all the 'winners' but I think that we on NGA are all winners because we belong to the best plant site on earth.

A great big thank you to Dave & Trish et al. for NGA and the NARR's and all you do for us!

It's so fun to see Dave having so much fun with the kids and the kids just plain having fun. It's heartwarming to see such a happy family.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.
