more giveaways

I don’t have much today. 
It has been busy, busy, busy around here.
Levi was supposed to have his 2 month appointment this morning.
At least I thought he was.
I even called a few days ago to check because I knew it was coming up.
Apparently it is next Wednesday.
Same time.
I felt really dumb.
We had gotten ourselves up and around earlier than usual just for the appointment.
Joel had even taken off work to come with me.
I guess we will try again next week.
I hate when I do things like that.
I will be posting all the giveaway winners soon. Thanks for being patient.
Also, if you were the highest bidder on an auction item I will be getting in touch with you soon. Again…thanks for being patient.
Ashley at Festive Frills is donating 15% of her Etsy sales to Cora’s for Calla through the end of this week.  Just mention “The Macs” in the notes to seller. I am also auctioning off an apron from her store today!
Dina at Brag Bling and Bows is also donating 15% of her Etsy sales to Cora’s for Calla for the next seven days.  Again, mention “The Macs” in the notes to seller. I will be auctioning off a hat and bow from her shop in the next few days.
Thanks so much ladies!

Western Bib
Two people will recieve:
Farm Swaddle Blanket
