I'm a Winner, Baby!

I won something very cool! This summer I found a contest that was giving away two American Girl dolls. It was from Borders Books in honor of the American Girl movie that was released this summer (I still want to see that, it looked really good). So I signed up and didn't think much more about it until September, when I received a notice in the mail telling me that I had won and had 2 weeks from when I got the notice to fill out the forms and have an affidavit notarized and get it back to them or I would miss out on my prize. So I took care of it the very next day and even sent the paperwork priority mail, so it would get there quickly.
I didn't mention much about winning because, well, you just never know. What if the post office lost my letter? Or something in my paperwork wasn't quite right. I'm telling you now because they were in a box on my front step when I got back from homeschool sports today. They are pretty cute. Ian even likes them. He asked me if they had any American Boy dolls, which as far as I know, they don't. He also informed me that when he watches the movie, he's going to need those dolls. I told him those dolls won't be here by the time we watch the movie. They're going to Kansas to hopefully make two little girls very happy this Christmas. They're for my two nieces, Emily and Hannah. I sure hope they like them!

Hi DeAnn!

Congrats on winning the dolls! Growing up, I had Samantha and my sister had Kirsten...I still get all warm and fuzzy when I see American Girl dolls! Mine is all packed up, along with tons of her accessories, and will be a gift for my daughter when she gets a little bigger.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for the excellent links about the Asian ladybugs! The one from Michigan was most informative! In fact, since I forgot to put in my link to the article I found, I'm going to put the link to this one that you found...very much appreciated! :0)

Enjoyed browsing your blog this morning!
