A Drawing for Two Christmas Boxes

It's time for another drawing. Please put your name into the hat if you'd like a chance to win a box.

I had to share this adorable picture of Annabel. She'd just awakened from her nap and decided to feed her doll.


  1. Annabel is adorable.. That is a hallmark moment if I ever saw one.. Most definetly throw my name in the pot... Gollum I'm wondering will we see an update soon the beautiful black shelf??? Inquiring minds want to
    hugs ~ lynne~

  2. Lynne, thank you so much for your sweet comment about Miss Annabel.
    And YES--I have the shelf. It's sitting in the library. I haven't decided if I should paint it or not. I'm thinking: don't paint it!

  3. Aw.. Annabel is so cute in all her pinkness, what a truly wonderful Christmas you have to look forward to Gollum.
    Please add my name to the draw, those Christmas Boxes are wonderful.
    ps thanks for your comments, I am so happy my story gave you goosebumps although I suspect it was more to do with the lovely Jonathan R Meyers hehe. hugs, Kathy.

  4. Annabel is a sweetie! Can't wait till I have some of those little grandchildren so I can post some cute pictures!!

  11. Gollum,

    Those special photos seem to mean even more when they grow up. Annabel looks like she's going to be a good Mommy. Thanks for sharing.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all.

  13. Gollumn, please put my name in the santa hat for the cute boxes. Santa said keep the gifts comming, he likes it when I keep sitting on his lap and adding to my list of "all I want for Christmas" from
    Gollumn's blog.
    Happy Holidays

  14. Awwwwwww! There is nothing sweeter than those mothering instincts being present at such an early age. That little Annabel is just precious. Love her "baby's" pink tutu layered over her jammies.
    Definitely throw my name in the hat for one of those pretty boxes.
    When I opened your blog yesterday and saw all the dried out cracked surface, it made me remember to go my moisturizer for my dry cracked winter skin!!!!
    I have to find time to read the "stories" that have been written by bloggers. Might not happen today though. Today starts my cooking marathon.... how about you?
    hugs and happiness to you Dear Gollum!

  15. Annabel is so cute. Those little moments are just too precious.
    Please add my name to the drawing, I just love those beatiful Christmas boxes.
    Have a wonderful day,

  16. What a precious picture of Annabel with her babies. How quickly they grow up! She already knows just what to do with her baby doll. I just love those kinds of moments with grandchildren. laurie

  17. ***"All I want for Christmas is an ANNABEL!!!"~~~ GG, that IS a "Hallmark Moment" if I ever saw one~~~ what a "Gerber Baby", expecially surrounded with "pinks"!!! Now THAT'S something to be grateful for this T'giving! I am soooo far behind, on toooo many "projects", that I haven't gotten to read peoples' stories yet, let alone WRITE one myself!!!~~~~~"HELP!!! I'm BEHIND & I can't CATCH UP!"~~~ Hugs to everyone! Love, Linda
