Best laid plans: my big idea to have Maggie pull the winner from a hat (a Santa hat, no less!) failed when I realized that duh, her bedtime is before the 9pm deadline for my little contest. And I tried doing it a bit early, taking my chances that nobody else would comment between 8:30 and 9 (no one did) but she still was very not interested in pulling a piece of paper out of the Santa hat. She was interested in trying to wear the hat, though, which only resulted in all of my lovely little paper scraps being scattered on the floor, a few possibly lost under the couch.
So, I ended up choosing the winner the new-fangled, high-tech way, using an online random number generator. Not nearly as entertaining as my toddler picking a number out of a hat, video taping it, and posting it here, but what can you do, you know?
ANYWAY. After all that, the winner is…
Congrats, Prissy! And this was TOTALLY not fixed, those of you who know that I know Prissy in real life. The Random Number Generator does not lie, people.
Thanks to everyone who entered, and I really enjoyed reading everyone’s wishlist items. I hope you all get what you’re hoping for!
