HELLO! YOU MADE IT!
This is it! The last day of this here crayfest book giveaway! We hope you’ve had a good time hanging out with us and we hope all the authors and publishers brought some holiday cheer into your days.
Of course, the elves and the reindeer are still in party mode and they’re having an indoor snowball fight with marshmallows as ammo. Some of those marshmallows are stuck to the caramel on the ceiling and now they’re trying to get even more stuck up there. Like they’re shooting baskets or something. omg lol
Tucker is leading another line dance — I did not realize you could do that to Christmas carols — and it looks really cool because the reindeer antler lights are blinking off and on. One of the neighbors has her electric guitar out and it’s a great backdrop to “Santa Claus is Coming to Town.” Who knew you could rock that up a bit?
This is the last day, and it’s going to be a blowout to the very end, friends. Rest assured of that! Nobody eases up until the last book is given away, until the last marshmallow is flung into the caramel on the ceiling, until you can’t see the tree or the disco ball because of the piles of tinsel and pizza boxes.
But we don’t mind, and we’re just really glad we’ve been able to share all of this with you.
