BABY arrival...and GIVEAWAY WINNERS!!




We have a new FARMGIRL in the family!



Miss Brooke Ellie came bouncing into the world Wednesday

at 12:43 pm and she weighed 7 lbs. 2 ounces




These pics were sent to me on my phone, so they are not the best...but I couldn't wait to show her to you!

I can't wait until Sunday...I will get to hold her for the very first time!

I want to smell the Johnson's baby bath...
hear all those little sounds she makes...
even her cry will make me happy!

 Just to know she is here and healthy!

*sigh*

I love babies.




Ok, now onto the winners of the CONTEST!!!

**********************

The winner of a $25 TARGET gift card for guessing the closest time of arrival is:

KIM from SPECIAL DELIVERY 
She guessed 12:44pm...so was only off by 1 minute!

And I can't believe there were 5 of you that guessed her weight right on! So, that means we have a tie among:

ALICE from THE BLISS GUILD
AUNTIE BLISS from BLISSITYDOODAH
SANDY from A COTTAGE MUSE
JAMES-LINDA
ABBY

My 6-year old niece, the NEW big sister, is excited to have been given the job of  drawing the winners names at random for the weight and boy/girl part of the contest!

I will announce those Monday morning!!!

Have a great weekend, girls!

I am off to photograph my progess on the Urban Plains guest room project!
