50 Followers Give Away

Welcome Through My Back Door, this is a cool rainy day here in East Tn, but something
exciting happened here. Fifty of you have followed me Through My Back Door and  I am doing a give away. I was so excited that you have chosen to follow this little blog, but as I have said before I am humbled too. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Now on to the giveaway.
I don't know how to do the number generated thing so this is what I did. I wrote each followers name  on a piece of paper

Then I cut them out, folded them and put them in this. Then I gave them to Andrew, my four year old great grandson.

and he did this 

and it says : Sandra , from Daybreak Place!!!!!!!!!!!Yeah Sandra

 This is what you have won!

Debbie made the sugar cone and the ornament hanging on the lantern. My friend Carol and I did the applesauce cinnamon bowl fillers, and the lantern and the battery candle came from  the best prim shop ever, The Speckled Hen, in Clinton Tn. I hope you enjoy it all.  Again I want to say thank you to the other 49 of you. I wish I could send each and everyone of you something other than a thank you. I hope you continue to come Through My Back Door.
I want to show you what Andrew was doing today before I had to enlist his help. He and his Granddad,(yes the woodcarver and worlds best son in law ) were putting up the outside Nativity. This is a tradition Deb and Michael started when Curt was two. Now Curt is 23 and away from home in pharmacy school, so Andrew is the helper. He actually has taken part the last 2 years

He is kissing the baby Jesus before he laid Him in the manger and we didn't tell him to

.I just wanted to share this with you and hope you enjoyed the little field trip down to Deb and Michael's to choose the give away winner.Did you notice the tree Andrew is standing in front of? It is all Michael and Debs carvings.
This is another little Christmas vignette. I will show more Christmas Through My Back Door next time. Hopefully  my back door will be decorated by then

Thank you for coming Through My Back Door where life is good
