Wednesday: WAHOO! It's GIVE-AWAY day!!

I'm actually kind of excited about today.
It's fun to give.
I want to share some of my favorite things (with YOU!).
I will be putting together a package of things that I love,
and things representative of some of the things that I love
and I promise it won't be lame.
I will tell you this:
I've been gathering. (and it's fun!)
And there will be a couple of little strings attached.
*There will be the promise that if you win this give-away, you will write a letter to someone.
Not an email, but a letter.
I'll even throw in the postage.
Also, I'd like you to:
*Tell me who you would most like to receive a letter from.
Just leave me a comment.
You know, the good old-fashioned kind of letter that hardly shows up in the mailbox anymore. You can tell me why if you want, but you don't have to.
On Sunday, January 18th at 8:30 p.m. I will randomly pick a name (out of a hat, of course) and then send you along this bundle of fun!

Good Luck!

I would love a letter from my nephew who is a missionary in Argentina.

And, Aaron H., we should refer to him as "President Arbon"!

Jo Jo said...

I love your letters. Your get-in-the mail ones for no reason that you write at soccer games. Birthday cards with nice presents, and funny sister cards are a really close second.

Michael Stokes said...

Dear Aaron, Mike is a great guy and yes letters from him might be intertaining however, I know he doesn't write; anyone. Maybe email and then its confinded to a couple of words.

I'd like to get a letter from Elder Maxwell. :-)

Janssen said...

I'd most like to get one from my sister.

In fact, I think I'll go write her one this afternoon.

Christies said...

This is fun. I'd most like a letter from one of my estranged brothers, it doesn't matter which one.

How cool! I would like to get a letter from Emma... I haven't heard from her in a while and she's so funny!

Joy said...

I want to play!!! I would love a letter from from my father...I can never have enough of them :-)

Jane said...

I would want a letter from my husband. He is not one to sit and write letters to anyone. So it would be cool to have one from him.

Can't wait to hear more about the give-away...got my fingers crossed.

Primarymary said...

I'm going to cheat and copy Tom, I would like to get a letter from Mom. SInce I know that can't happen my 2nd choice would be my old friend Carolyn Bates (From Worcester Ward)

Sue said...

Thanks for leaving such a nice comment on my blog. What a fun give-away idea! I would, of course, love to have a letter from my husband. He thought he wasn't a writer, until I made him start a blog, and guess what...HE IS! If that's all that comes of this deployment--it will be worth it!!!

I'd enjoy a letter from anyone. I think I'll write to my friend Marie in Florida. She is there for the winter and has a lot of medical issues and upcoming surgery for her back. Her husband is not the most supportive individual, and I'm sure she could use the support of a friend. So I'll write her tomorrow. I'm going to type it though because it is easier, but I will mail it, and not by email, either.

smart mama said...

does this package include any bountiful oranges?? I would like a letter telling me that i won a million dollars from well anyone so long as it's true

Corinne said...

I would love a letter from my Grandma she writes the best letters!

Christy said...

Add me in the fun hat!
I'd love to get a letter from my grandma..she always makes me laugh with her random topics.

Sherry said...

My dad writes me letters, and I love it! I have gotten to know my dad so much better over the last few years of him writing me letters than I did my whole lifetime of growing up, I think.

Also, I have a letter for a company that I need to mail off. Does that count? It's a nice letter telling the company how awesome they are.

To actually answer your question: I would love to receive a letter from a niece or nephew.

shirlgirl said...

I've written my letter--3 pages--to my friend, Marie. It will go out in Saturday's mail. I probably wouldn't have done it without some urging, and I'm glad you came up with the idea. Talking about letters--I still have all the letters you sent when you were on your mission. I started reading some of them the other day. Very interesting. I thought I'd give them to you, and you can read them again and also your children might enjoy reading about your mission. Love, Aunt Shirley

Count me in. I love letters. I most want to recieve a letter from my Dad... Not the family memo type - just a personal note. I miss him.

I would like to receive a letter from Elder Worthlin. He was my favorite apostle before he died. I loved his talks and know that I have gained many things from his knowledge. Porter

Cooper said...

I would like to receive a letter from Ranger. I would like to know what he thinks of our family and if we treat him okay. Cooper

I would like to get a letter from a lot of people. Off the top of my head, I would say President elect Barack Obama. I would like to hear what he says he's going to do for the country. However, because Presidents can't reply to all the letters, I would say I would like to receive a letter with a chance of receiving one from President Monson. He has good thoughts and great stories. It would be an honor to receive one from him.

I would like a letter from John Wooden. He's a great man. I'll have to work on that since he's still alive.

Jo Jo said...

I would like a letter from Moses, on sheep skin parchment would be great, but stone tablets even better. Or, a letter from Abraham Lincoln telling me what his favorite after-dinner game was. Either one of those letters I could sell and pay off all my student loans. Jarrod

Jane said...

You say give away and look what happens...all of these people come out of the wood-work ;)

can enter twice?
I would like a letter from you!

Sawyer would like a letter from Bro. Bach. Sawyer says hi to Mason. P.S. Renaissance Man is Tanner.
