*****$500.00 Richer!!!*****

Yesterday, James, his cousin Kristin and I scratched a $20 Super Set For Life and won $1,000.00!! Kristin bought the 1st 2 and we lost, then we split the 3rd one and lost again, I bought the 4th one and lost AGAIN, so, we said we would be sooo sick if someone bought the next one and won. We just at least wanted our money back. So, we bought the 5th one and James started scratching and we were all sooo nervous. James scratched the 1st 4 numbers off and no mathces, but not the amount and he got to the 5th spot and we saw a STAR!! The star means you win ALL 25 PRIZES on the ticket! We were soo nervous to scratch off the amounts, so there is a machine in the store where you scan the ticket and it will tell you the amount you won. We scanned it and it wouldn't tell us the amount, it just said claim at the lottery commission! We knew it was at least over $500.00, OMG....so we scratched off of the prizes and they were all $40.00. $40.00 x 25= $1,000.00! WHOOP WHOOP! We were sooo excited and decided we were splitting it $500/$500. Since, it is over $500.00 we have to go to Austin to get our picture taken and cash it in there. We are going to make the trip on Monday and I guess eat some lunch while in Austin. I am have never experienced someone win that much. James has won $5,000.00 before, but I wasn't there when he scratched it off. Here is a pic of the winning ticket....
