THIS CONTEST IS CLOSED - CHECK BACK TOMMORROW!!

Drum roll..... by random drawing our winner is Mommy Cracked!



God Gave Us Christmas
By Lisa Tawn Bergren

Its 78 degrees outside.. yes 78!.. and its been a chaotic christmas. I've so wanted Connor's first Christmas to be soo special and perfect for him that I think I've actually forgot to sit down, breath, and enjoy this time with him.

Lisa was kind enough to send us this series to review and I'm so glad she did! We've decided to start off our reviews with this book and GIVEAWAY in the spirit of Christmas!

Last night I sat down with Connor and snuggled while we read this book. I have to say it was the perfect book for us at just the right time as the message really reminded me to slow down, enjoy, and find time not only for Christmas but what Christmas really means.

Children I think especially these days think only of Christmas in the terms of Santa, presents, and getting out of school! I think in a way we all forget at times really what the meaning of Christmas is and why we have it! In the book Little Cub asks "Who 'vented Christmas? Was it Santa?".. I have to admit even for a second I thought about that question before I continued on... Mama Bear tells her Little Cub that God gave us christmas! Then they set off on a journey to find God in all the things around them and find out why God gave us christmas.

I really look foward to reading this book with Connor as he gets older and really starts to understand the meaning behind Christmas and God. This book is a great stepping stone on which to tell the story of Christmas and to explore God all around us.

The pictures in the book are heartwarming and very pleasing. I really enjoy the picture of the Mama Bear cuddling her cub and sniffing his neck. I cannot even being to count how many times a day I do that with Connor. We both smiled and I snuggled him even closer.

If you still need to buy a stocking stuffer for someone special on your list I highly recommend this book. It's defently going to be a favorite Christmas story here. Its on sale at Amazon.com right now for only 9.99 which is quite a steal! I've also seen it on sale at Walmart!

For one lucky boy or girl I have one copy of God Gave Us Christmas to give away. Its signed and ready to go under the tree! I want this book to reach you buy Christmas if at all possible so Im only going to run this contest till Sunday night at midnight Dec 16th. Please check back on Monday morning to see if your the winner and get me your address ASAP! Ill ship this out next Monday pending I get the address in time!! Just leave a comment to enter, I will draw a name at random.

Thanks again Lisa for sharing this with Connor!! You can visit her webpage here as well.

Please Note : If you do not leave me a email address and I have no way to contact you I will not award you the prize. To speed up the process please check back to see if you have won as well. I will attempt to contact you and I will give you 48 hours to respond, then I will move on to the next person. Also those that blog my contests and leave me the link will recieve two entries.
