Hey gang! Yesterday was a whopper of last-day-of-school-before-the holidays fun! Now we're getting ready for my husband's family Christmas party tonight. Since 8 am this morning.... I've helped the boy paint 17 dough ornaments, cleaned the house top to bottom, my husband's cooked a giant vat of chili, I've wrapped one present, prepped the ingredients for about 300 cookies, and I've been so busy that I've only had time to read two Christmas books aloud (Hillary Knight's 12 Days of Christmas and How the Grinch Stole Christmas) to the boy while snuggled in front of the tree. Whew.
That said, thanks for all the kind words and the record comments for the win this week... and without further blah blah, the winner of the box of booky goodness is Stephanie. Unfortunately, there is no way I am getting to the PO today, so if you get me your info this weekend, I'll be sure to hit the mail box in the AM on Monday. E-mail me at webe(at)soon(dot)com. My new Facebook friend Tamara Prosper is the winner of the mystery book. Send your info along too! Congrats to both you guys and thanks to everyone for playing. The Great Monday Give will be back on its regular schedule come January 4th, so stay tuned! Chao for now!
