Look what I won!

I was cleaning house Monday and I heard a horn blew and seen it was the mail lady. And the only reason she would blow the horn was if there was a package. So, I hurried outside to see and sure enough it was a package from Wolfie at Cherish Yesterday. She had a Giveaway a week ago and I won!!! I had to take the pic off of her site because once again my hubby has our camera. And the other camera is not showing good pics.As soon as I get the good camera back I will share this beautiful doll with you!But, I do have to say that no pictures will do any justice for this doll! I am in awe of her. The craftsmanship that was put into her is unbelievable! Thank you so much Wolfie for this giveaway. She is my first Prim doll and I will cherish her forever!

Now I wanted to share with you all something that happened to me last night that blessed my heart so much.
My DIL called me last night and told me that my GD Anna Rae wanted to tell me something.So she put her on the phone and told her "Tell Mimi who you want to marry" and she said "I want to marry Mimi" -Now you all know my heart melted when she told me this. My DIL proceeded to tell me that Anna Rae has been walking around with a candle in her hand and when she asks her what she is doing she says "I'm getting married" My DIL then asks her who is she going to marry? And Ann Rae says "who are you going to marry mommy?" and DIL says "I'm already married to daddy" and once again Dil asks her who was she going to marry and Anna Rae says " I'm going to marry Mimi" well, DIL tells her that she can't marry Mimi because Mimi is married to PopPop.Anna Rae tells her mommy "I don't want Mimi to marry PopPop. I want to marry Mimi."
Now for those of you who are Grandmas you know how I felt! My heart just melted! My friend told me that Anna Rae might not understand what marriage is but that she just knows that it has to do with Love and that when Anna Rae thinks of marriage she loves me so much she wants to marry me.
The Lord has blessed me so much with this gift he gave our family.And now her brother Samuel is trying to crawl and I know i will have other grandchildren in the future.And I look so much forward to Loving and"Marrying" each and everyone of them.
To all of those of you who are on their way of becoming first time grandparents...You are getting ready to be blessed with God's most precious gift.I hope that one day they will want to "Marry" you too!
I won't be back here probably again this week so I can spend time with my family. And yes my grandchildren will be here. So, just in case I don't come back this week I want to take the time to wish everyone of you Happy Thanksgiving and I hope you all enjoy this day!

Juanita, first off Congratulations on winning Wolfies Give A-way...the doll is adorable and isn't that just right - things that are pictured on the web aren't half as nice looking as the real thing!

Oh the story of your granddaughter is so endearing. Don't you just love those little grandbabies???? There is just such a different feeling isn't there. You are truly blessed. Lots to be THANKFUL for this season.
Hugs, Karen

Congrats on your win! And how sweet about your grandaughter wanting to marry you! Mine said the same thing when she was around two. LOL! Now she tells me that I'm her best friend. There's nothing like that feeling!

This story reminds me so much of when my son was little (he is 22 now) He got a ring out of a vending machine and gave it to me while saying, "Mommy will you marry me?" so cute...Yes, I still have the ring! :)
I have two Grandsons and a Granddaughter will be here real soon. They ARE such a blessing!
What a wonderful post Juanita-You are blessed.
