At Least Some Choose To Humor Me.

Thanks for those that played along with my fun of finding out Who's Reading on Thursday. It's always a little fun to do something different and on occasion someone new comments or says they're reading. I know there are many who read who choose not to comment and that's totally fine.

I had hoped to have the drawing all done and ready by lunchtime, but the beautiful weather called us outside and we just returned from a mile plus bike ride. We're borrowing a friends Burley so it's wonderful to hop on the bikes with H in tow and go wherever. This included a stop at our local library to sign up for the Go Bananas Reading Program.
We had a great time though we could all use a long nap now!


So on that note, here's the results of the contest courtesy of T and M. (And on a side note, because there are two of them and there was only one prize to be drawn for, we threw in a surprise prize so there are actually TWO winners! Believe me it's better this way for all involved. Oy!)


All the comments printed out ready to be cut.

All the comments getting cut up into slips!

Anne is the winner of the surprise.

Natasha is the winner of the coffee gift card. She can email me your preference and your address and I'll drop it in the mail. If I don't hear from Natasha by Wednesday I'll re-draw.

And because the kids thought H would feel left out, here is H expressing himself verbally around home.

The first video he is reading "Barnyard Dance" by Sandra Boynton, the second one he's talking to J on the phone.

While I am completely devastated that I was not drawn, I must admit that you are the coolest blogging mom ever :)

What fun! Everyone got to participate as well. And I just love to see H reading.......Grandma loves books so keep reading H. T and M, you need to be reading for me also, I'm so glad everyone is signed up for the reading program at the library. It was always one of our summer highlights.

what a great post, complete with videos! i love that all the children were involved in some way:) congratulations to the winners, anne and natasha!

since this is my first time commenting, i feel obliged to answer your "who's reading?" question and confess that late last night was the first time i ever visited your blog (and consequently, considered entering the contest, but realized that it was after your sunday night cutoff).

i'm sure you know that i found you by way of a few mutual friends (and your post on my blog:), and i look forward to continuing to read in the future!

Very nice S...I will have to watch all those clips sometime soon. Looks like everyone is in a summer time mode there. And looks like you got some extra sun. Your face looks pretty red...must be that scandinavian fair skin :)

What a fun way to start my day...finding out that my lucky Anne was a winner (She's always been lucky like that; her first contest at age 4 won her a huge stuffed bear at Kroch's and Brentano's at the mall!)

And having the kids join the reading club...yea!!! Could H join, too? (Our library started last year to offer a special club just for babies.)

Then, you kept going with delights of videos of all three. Melting my heart once again!

Can I just say it here, right now,
that I love your troop? And their incredible blogging mama??
