Secret Santa Blog Hop

Welcome to Mona’s stop on the Secret Santa Blog Hop.  Gotta say, that hot guy is really getting around WHEW!!
Hope he’s not too worn out by the end of the tour.  The grand prize for participation is a Kindle Fire loaded with wonderful books. I’m sharing below how to maximize your chances to win.

My favorite Christmas tradition has been hand made gifts.  Some years it’s trays of cookies, or maybe artwork on mugs.  This year it’s going to be home made vanilla extract.  The ingredients are super simple: vanilla beans and vodka.  I’ll share the procedure tomorrow…get some nice glass containers, enough to hold about 1/2 cup each.

There are THREE WAYS to get more entries for the drawing. One for following my blog. One for leaving a comment and another for answering my question.

For that first chance, here is tonight’s QUESTION

I’ve been involved in purebred dogs for over forty years and since tonight (12/16) is the finale of the AKC Invitational Show in Florida, my first question is going to be dog related.  But don’t worry, you don’t need to be a dog person to answer.

Question for December 17: What was Bethany’s dog’s name in Teach Me To Forget?

I’ll be posting something new every day so you can hop back over here for a couple more chances to win the Kindle loaded with books and/or a great gift card.  You’ll want to link back to Blog Hop Central to gather up lots of chances for those prizes, and that’s here: http://www.tabithablake.blogspot.com

For those who haven’t been following my blog this last year, this is my first year without my husband Tom. Last Christmas his hospital bed was in the middle of the living room, and he was able to spend his final days surrounded by our love.  To heck with fancy gifts, hug those who love you and forgive those who can’t.
