Today's winner is Miranda McMillon. Congrats Miranda! We hope you enjoy your gift card to James Avery Artisan Jewelry! Here's what Miranda had to say:

My parents have never been simple or plain when it comes to holidays or gift giving. For example, starting off with a HUGE box, the kind only kids dream of, only to find 12 other boxes inside and finally reaching the last box just to open it and find a dainty pocket knife. Well, one year my brother and I opened all of our presents with ease, no games or hassles to get to our precious gifts, which was a first for us. As we were starting to clean up mom “found” one last box under the tree (like a 7 and 15 year old would miss a present). My brother went ahead opening it and pulled out a note which had a clue on it for a scavenger hunt. My brother and I lit up trying to find the next few clues, one was on the train that circled our tree, another in a stocking. The last clue led us back to the Christmas tree where we found a key hanging on a red, sparkling ornament. What would a 7 and 15 year old need with a key? Well, it was the key to our very own Yamaha bear tracker four wheeler, that I still have 20 years later. That four wheeler was a center point to many childhood memories but none can top the exciting, Christmas morning scavenger hunt to find it!

Thank you Miranda for sharing your precious memory! If you'd like to share yours or to find out more, click here!
