A Birthday for Me, A Gift for You

Happy Birthday to Me!


Happy Birthday to Me!


Happy Birthday to Meeeeeee (and Traci)!!!!!


Happy Birthday to Me!





My twin sister, Traci, insists that we are TWENTY-NINE years old again, and who am I to argue??! Since you have all been such a blessing to me this past year I figured it would be a great time to host a little give away.

My birthday present to you: A box full of various kinds of that good Wisconsin cheese that Rob makes at the Dairy.



Just leave a comment on this post and I'll pick a winner on Wednesday, January 4, 2012. And . . . if you want two chances to win . . . post about the giveaway on your blog and leave me another comment. (Shipped to the continental United States only:))

Good luck friends!


***********


The contest is officially over~

thanks for the overwhelming response!

I'll post the winner soon . . .

Well how disappointing; I thought you were giving away autographed pictures of YOU! Man!

Love you. And we ARE 29, despite what mother says. We just have to stick together on this thing. :)

Dicky Bird said...

Happy Birthday! I love cheese. I heard you say on the radio interview about your book, that he has won awards for his string cheese. My girls love string cheese, there is always a suppy in our refrigerator. Blessings from Ringle.

Sherry Sutherby http://russ-stickacres.blogspot.com/ said...

This is actually an "entry" from Russ...(I'm typing...HA HA!) He said CHEESE!!! What else is there besides BACON! LOL

Peggy said...

You look too pretty to be 29! Happy Belated Birthday and many more. Had a hen surprise us this morning with 8 chicks. She had hidden her nest and I didn't know she was sitting.

Red Gate said...

Happy Birthday!! But who am I kidding, I definitely want a chance at the cheeses!!

cmarie said...

Happy 1st day after your Birthday Terri. O how we love good Wisconsin cheese with crackers. I wish I qualified for the drawing but I won't be on the continent until nearly March! Glad the package arrived. :)

Michaele said...

Happy Birthday! I came over from Dicky Bird's Nest and am happy to be a new follower.

Scezics said...

Happy Birthday to you and Traci, I seen her in the store the other day and had a nice conversation until her girls (who were very patient) just could no longer stand in one spot any longer. If you guys are 29 again that must make me 25? huh guess I should remember that.

Traci

OurCrazyFarm said...

I know it, Traci, these ladies are all so sweet! I have been restraining myself to not reply to all these comments and mess up the numbers:)) Maybe signed autographs could be sent to second place runnerups!

Love you too, Lexi! I'll tell Dad to bring some home for us~ maybe those fresh, squeaky cheesecurds~ yummy! You haven't had cheese until you've had fresh, squeaky cheesecurds!

I'm going to enter you anyway, Renee:))

Brenda~ I'll have to set up a photo shoot with Traci sometime . . .

Awe, Mom, did you have to go and tell everybody??!! Okay, okay, we can pretend you are ten years younger, too:))

HAHA Russ! I'll enter you, too! But you have to share with Sherry. . .

Thanks Peggy:))

I know, I know RedGate ... it's all about the cheese:)) Me too!

I'll enter you twice, DickyBird, since you posted the contest on your blog, too.

Enjoy the warmness, CMarie!

Nice to "meet" you Michaele! Welcome to OurCrazyFarm!

Glad you revealed yourself, Scezics! If you win I'll have to do a home delivery:))

Susan Roquet said...

This is my first time on your blog, came over from Prairie Flower Farm. I'm enjoying meeting other Christian women. I have shared with Linda about my granddaughter, Delainey, who has Trisomy 18. This is a genetic disorder where instead of two of each chromosome, she has an extra (3) of Chromosome 18 (similar to Down syndrome, T-21). But very different in birth defects. Well, our Delainey is a tough little cookie. She was 1 year old 11/15/11. Drs. won't do heart surgery nor will they put in a G-tube. But, we're trusting God and loving every moment we have with her.
