My 100th Follower Giveaway Celebration! CLOSED

Yay! 101 followers, to be exact! I am in no hurry to get numbers for this blog, but I'm happy I hit this milestone and just thought I'd celebrate by doing a giveaway! I have had so many wonderful experiences going public with this blog. Just take a look at the post below this one to figure out why. I've made so many amazing friends and met lots of lovely ladies and social network all the time with them on Twitter and Instagram. So here's the part where I give back to you!

My child loves books! This thrills me to no end. We might have Thomas, Bob, or George on the tube for 1/2 of his day...but he's definitely not always watching or glued to it. Often I'll find him shuffling through his library "reading" his books. I have to take books back to his room every day because he always brings them out to us during the day wanting to read. Yesterday, my Mom (Braden's Poppy) sent him an early Christmas present...and this was his reaction:

He LOVES the Llama Llama books by Anna Dewdney. They are definitely his favorite books lately, always asking for his "ya ya" books. It was so suiting that my Mom was thoughtful enough to send this book for him to enjoy before Christmas!

So Braden and I want to share his favorite book with one of you! This will be a quick, 3 day giveaway so you and your little one can enjoy it for Christmas, if you have a little one to share it with! Anyone and everyone is welcomed and encouraged to enter to win! I love my Rafflecopter entries, but to make it super SUPER easy...all you have to do is leave a comment on this post! That's it!

I also wanted to add that my emotional "time of the month" self got a bit teary eyed at the end of the book. A very good message to teach your children about Christmas! Braden also woke up at 5AM the morning after he opened this gift, happily saying "ya ya? Ya ya?" On the monitor. I went in, gave him a fresh diaper change (just because) and gently told him we'd read his Llama book when it was morning...and he slept for 3 more hours!

Win! One lucky reader will win 1 copy of Llama Llama Holiday Drama shipped from Amazon directly to them! Please be sure your email is connected to your Google account or post it in your comment!

This giveaway is open until Thursday December 8 at 0800 MST. I will pick the winner using Random.org when I get up on Thursday morning! Winner will have 24 hours to respond or a new winner will be chosen. Residents of Canada and U.S.A. eligible.

*Note: I am not affiliated with Anna Dewdney or Amazon, nor was I paid for or given this book by them for review. I'm just giving this away with the money out of my own PayPal account and the goodness of my heart! :)


The new winner is Lacey from The Southern Mommy Chronicles!
