7th Day of Christmas in snowy Missouri

Is it snowing where you are? It sure is in Missouri where Rhonda Vincent is preparing for Christmas with her family.

She sent this video as the blizzard was just getting started to congratulate today’s winner in the Bluegrass Today 12 Days Of Christmas, Kathy Silva from Lakeville, MA.


We’ll be announcing winners each day through Christmas, when that day’s winner will receive an iPad 3. Entries are still being accepted online, with prize giving continuing through Christmas Day when a new iPad 3 will be given away.

In addition to fun prizes from Rhonda, Martha White and Bluegrass Today, she is sharing one of her favorite recipes with our readers each day.

Today it’s her Oatmeal Cookies with a Twist.
