  1. Oh my!! What a wonderful surprise this would be! We aren’t able to do much this year because of the high cost of prescriptions! The 3 grandchildren are each getting a small gift and that is it.
    If I won this I would get them each a couple more gifts and buy some groceries so we can have a meal on Christmas day.
    Thank you for the chance to be able to do a little more for the grands! 🙂
    Good luck to all who enter!
