|Well, the deadline has passed for the contest so we had the official drawing this morning. Note to self: rethink setting deadlines at midnight because the rest of the family has gone to sleep by then and would have missed out on the fun.|
|This morning, I wrote all the names down on slips of paper and put them in our official drawing bowl. The boys were mystified, especially when I set the bowl out and photographed it.Turns out they’ve not seen a drawing up close and personal before. Next, we tried shaking the bowl to mix up the names. At least we didn’t end up with names all over….|
|We finally gave up and had the helper just stir the names vigorously. Much better.Finally, after much fumbling with the camera and a delay while the autofocus shut down some minor technical difficulty we drew the winning name.|
|Congratulations Angie of AngiesPangies!! You are our winner! Send me an e-mail to confirm your address and I’ll get the book ordered and on its way to you.|
