They won a HOUSE...

My aunt and uncle won a house today. Yes...a HOUSE!!! have no idea how excited we all were. This is a drawing of the house below. I don't think that they are going to live there. They really like the house they are in now. They will probably just sell it and get the money. They still have a lot of thinking to do, though. It is also their son's birthday today. That just made the day better. We went out to tonight to celebrate. They still can't believe that it actually happened.

Intervew from news this afternoon...
"We left everything in the yard - we just had to see if it was real," says LF. F and his wife T dropped everything to make sure this dream home is really a dream come true. The LA couple and their two kids got a chance to see their new house Sunday afternoon after their name was pulled live on the news. L was washing the house when a relative called with the good news. "Amazing - unbelievable," says T.
As they toured all four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 2,500 square feet of this house in the LA subdivision - it was almost tears at every turn. "We have a nice house but nothing like this," says T. The F's say they're not sure if they'll live here - or try to sell the house. Right now - they own a home on the same street as many family members - and it's a family connection that drove the couple to buy a ticket every year supporting St. Jude. "My mom passed away from cancer- so this is an awesome cause," says T.
As they try to decide if this house will become their new home, the F's say one thing is for sure - next year they'll be buying more than one ticket. "Whoever pulled the name - thank you," said T.

This was an awesome day for them. God is definitely watching. :) Only he could have made something like this happen.
