Okay….so I’m a little late posting this announcement about some EXCITING giveaways!!  I know some of you are still trying to find that last gift or last stocking stuffer so here is your chance to finish your shopping for FREE!!!  I wanted to do something fun for christmas and also help do a little advertising for some of our local businesses around here.  Some of my FAVORITE businesses have been so kind to donate all sorts of goodies.  I am going to be drawing names everyday from the 12th to the 24th.  Here is how it is going to work:

1.  You must ”like” Aneca Photography on Facebook  .  Leave a comment on my Facebook page, then leave a comment on my blog telling me you “like” Aneca Photography on Facebook.  (1 entry)

2.  Post about this giveaway on your Facebook status. Leave a comment on my blog  telling me you posted about this giveaway on Facebook.  (1 entry)

Now, I am going to list all of the businesses that have generously donated an item for our 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways.  Some do not have facebook pages or websites.  Please take the time to check out their businesses.  I am going to include links to all of the businesses that we are able to see on the web.  I need you to visit all of them!!!  If you “like”their facebook page, leave a comment followed by (Aneca Photography sent me), and then leave a comment on Aneca Photography blog telling me you “liked” it,  you will receive (1 more entry per site).  If they don’t have a facebook page, then check out their website, copy the link, and then paste it in the “comment” section of Aneca Photography’s blog so I know that you’ve visited their site and you will receive (1 more entry per site).  REMEBER YOU HAVE TO ALWAYS COME BACK AND LEAVE A COMMENT ON ANECA PHOTOGRAPHY’S BLOG SO I KNOW WHERE YOU’VE BEEN.  THAT WAY I CAN MAKE SURE YOU RECEIVE ALL OF THE ENTRIES YOU DESERVE.

I am an aunt of Tiffany Sanford’s and have shared your website long and far. I love that you have punkin’ on your banner (I’d recognize that pout anywhere). And I love that you have kept your beautiful photos of them on your rotation. LUV.

You are amazing and love your warm spirit.

And…your kids are GORGEOUS!
