Santa Came, Santa Came a day early!

I had to run out to Super Wal-Mart to pick up stuff to make an Artichoke Bread Bowl dip today.  Yeah, I was dreading this trip since I was lugging around the girls also, but I was quite surprised at how nice everyone was.  The spirit of Christmas was definitely in the air!!! :o)

I had just unloaded the van of sleeping children and groceries, when what should I hear - was that tinkling sleigh bells?? (OK, it was the Ding-Dong of the door bell, but I could wish couldn't I?)  I ran to the door to see whom may greet me and what should I find but some guy dressed in BROWN walking away from my door step heading to an even browner truck- huh??  I peered around trying to see what the clatter was all about and then I spied this little box

Oh my, could it be??  Could my much anticipated dreams come true and they were notifying me I had won Publishers Clearing House in a new way!!  I snatched up the sweet little box and ran indoors.  I was like a kid in a candy store (or me in Starbucks!).  I ever so gently slice the tape holding this treasure together.  This is it, this is the moment - I hold my breathe as I slide open the box.

to find this beauty awaiting me.  What?? You don't know what it is - geesh it is my way of leaving a trail so I can find my way home - oh wait no that's not it.

YAY!!!!!! My winnings from the give away Holly over at  had finally arrived - and it is a BEAUTY!!

Thank you so much Holly for such a wonderful giveaway.  I am in love with it already!
And it was SO much fun thinking Santa came early, just for ME!!  Now I am off to make some yummy dip and other assorted dishes for the next two days!


PS - yes I know that certain numbers and words are visible on the pictures - it is in hopes that someone will come take me away visit me ;o)
