Laura Smith you won the drawing for the Turquoise Earrings!!
To all of you that bid and shared our blog: THANK YOU! Please know how very grateful Cody and I are. Every single time a bid comes in it is so exciting for us. When I wrote each of your names on the pieces of paper to draw from, I was filled with such gratitude. Our family has never had to raise money before, and let me to you, IT IS HARD!! It is growing us, and it is giving me a new appreciation for others that have been here. But we have been so overwhelmed by our family, friends, and community that have come along side us and chosen to make it their priority to help us bring our kids home!!
On a less sappy note—I decided I wanted to know where the phrase "Winner Winner Chicken Dinner" came from. Weren't you wondering too?
Urban Dictionary says: The legend tells that years ago every casino in Las Vegas had a three-piece chicken dinner with a potato and a veggie for $1.79. A standard bet back then was $2, hence when you won a bet you had enough for a chicken dinner. !” So, the call of glorious victory rang out “Winner Winner Chicken Dinner"
