Sunday Snaps and We've Got A Winner!

Hi everyone.  Hope you're all having a good weekend.  As promised, my three grandchildren picked out the winner for my one year blogaversary giveaway!

Ruby picked out the first one, and I'm delighted to say that the winner is BELLE from Tales of a Loser who is Sometimes a Winner.  Well Belle, you're certainly a winner today!



Eli and Eleanor also wanted to pick out a name, so Belle wins the first prize of the £20 Amazon Gift Voucher, the Little Book of Devon and a few bits and pieces, and I have decided that two more of my bloggy friends will receive the Little Book of Devon.

Eleanor picked out Teresa (sorry Teresa. I've just noticed that I've spelt your name wrong on the piece of paper!) and Eli picked out Retired English Teacher (Sally).  Congratulations to the three of you, and thank you to everyone who took part.  Would the three winners please e-mail me their addresses, and I will get their gifts off to them.




Now it's time for a few Sunday Snaps -

Granddaughter number 1 and Granddaughter number 2

Ruby with Alfred


Tomorrow we are having a little Halloween party here.  My younger daughter's fourteen year old stepson will be bringing along along five of his friends, and we will be having fireworks  and making up the Smores that SkippyMom kindly sent me some time ago. 

Happy Halloween everyone and I hope you don't get too scared!!

From ghoulies and ghosties
And long-leggedy beasties
And things that go bump in the night,
Good Lord, deliver us!

Thisisme congrats to all your winners. I think each one of us just be apart of your world as you share with us your fmaily and your world of Devon. I know I feel like a winner everytime I see your post go up or you ahve left a comment for me. A halloween party sounds like such fun. I miss not being around our little ones. Im trying to decide whether I would like to dress up to hand out candy or not. Im thinking...
Have fun and many blessings

Hooray for Belle and the other lucky winners! Your family must be the most photogenic bunch in the world, Thisisme. Everybody looks positively radiant! Eli appears to be feeling better and I'm shocked to see that his hair has grown back so soon! Bless your whole family. Seeing their smiling faces makes me happy and seeing Alfred always makes my day.
