Starbucks Gift Card Winner

First of all, I'd like thank everyone who commented on my Starbucks Gift Card Giveaway post for your kind words!  I also really enjoyed reading about your favorite holiday drinks.  I have some new recipes to try out this week:)!!

And without further ado, the winner of the Starbucks Gift Card is.....

Congratulations Judi!!  Your gift card is in the mail.

Judi also wins the award for best Christmas Card of 2011.
Hilarious.  I want to be just like you when I grow up, Judi!

And as a consolation prize for everyone else, I'd love to direct your attention to a wonderful new children's CD called Songs from the Songshack available for FREE download here!

The music is written and performed by the talented and charming D.B. Rouse, who happens to be my brother.  He's a Texas ranch hand by day and a musician by night.  His life takes him on one adventure after another, which provides great material for original lyrics and music!  If you have young children you'll appreciate the fun, kid-friendly songs like Celery Cake, which is about the importance of eating vegetables and Skunk Song, which is about the importance of taking a bath.

My personal favorite song, however, is Humming Birds Have Feet.  I laugh so hard I cry when I hear it because as a child I once asked my dear mother (who was probably distracted for a moment making dinner or doing laundry or an IEP report) if hummingbirds had feet because I'd never seen one land before.  She said, 'No.'  She swears she doesn't remember the conversation, but it was just a one question/one answer conversation.  I think I realized that hummingbirds had feet sometime in high school.  It took that long because my mom was never wrong, and I just trust her that much.  And I guess if she had to be wrong about one thing, I'm okay with being led astray in the hummingbird foot department.  With D.B.'s song, Humming Birds Have Feet, I know that my children won't be in high school when they realize that hummingbirds do in fact have feet:).

Love you Mom and D.B.!  And Merry Christmas to all!!  Bill has the entire week between Christmas and New Year's off this year, so my posts next week may be sporadic at best while we enjoy some rest, relaxation and family time!!


  1. Yea Judi! I'm definitely going to check out the music. Can't wait to hear it!

  2. That was a very nice surprise! Thank you Lucy for drawing my name! I down loaded the CD and got a kick out of the songs but especially 'Yon Yonson'! Glad you got a grin from the Xmas card!
    Merry Christmas and God bless......
