$200 #HoliDazeGiftAway


Happy Black Friday!!!! Who's still up? Or did the tryptophan get you? This is the Lair's BIGGEST giveaway to date... That I know of.

As a part of the HoliDaze Gift-Away we are giving one lucky winner $200 either in Paypal money or gift card. Sounds like fun? But here in the Lair we don't just give away money! We help others. The bloggers involved in this raised $100 to help a family that has been terribly affected by the storm Sandy that hit the northeast. We do what we can.

This giveaway, like the ones before it, is simple. All you HAVE to do is leave a comment (based on what the rafflecopter question is). Then after that it's all optional. But if you've hang out in the Lair long enough you already do half the stuff I'm asking. There are a few BONUS options that will get you to blog hop and check out the other sites involved in this. Tell them thank you when you can.

Many will enter one person will win $200! The giveaway starts NOW and Ends December 11 at midnight. I wish you the best of luck!  PLEASE follow the rules (I hate disqualifying people). When it doubt check out my giveaway tips and tricks page.

When you guys and dolls enter the giveaways PLEASE comment on the post and NOT in the rafflecopter. I want to read what you are writing.

We have a separate celebration with my mom's side of the family at my 97 year old Grandmother's house and exchange gifts a few days before Christmas. On Christmas Eve we always go to the Christmas Eve service at church and then the kids get to come home and open 1 present which is new pajamas to go to bed in. In Christmas morning we all get up and let our kids open presents at home then we go to my mom's house and eat breakfast, open presents, spend family time together and then eat an early supper. We enjoy spending time together and I think that is an important thing to do at holidays.
