As promised, I put all your names in a hat — my good ol’ Cowboy hat to be exact — and the Bear drew a name from the hat!
I am not going to say it was an easy task. The Bear was a bit … shall we say … disagreeable.Â I suppose the concept of pulling a name out of a hat just wasn’t in his repertoire yet.
He carried the hat around.
He ignored the hat. Perhaps hoping it would go away?
He considering wearing the hat.
And dumping all the names out of the hat.
And even putting puzzle pieces into the hat.
So I pulled out the big guns. Surely for the promise of a treat he’d do it! He wouldn’t even have to sit on the potty!
It was to no avail. He was getting sleepy and grumpy and ready for nap time, and things weren’t looking good.
Just when hope was almost lost, he brought over the little bowl we got a free sample of Coco Puffs in at the grocery store a while back. Random, I know. So I suggested the Bear pull a name out of the hat, and put it in the Coco Puffs bowl. And I demonstrated. Finally, the light switched on.
He pulled a name out of the hat…
And put it in the Coco Puffs bowl…
So the winner, who’ll be receiving a photo frame or hair bow holder of their choice is…
And while I snapped a shot of the winner (that was the time of comment in case you’re wondering — just to avoid duplicates and confusion!), the Bear began to…you guessed it, neatly pull names out of the hat, one after another, and put them in the little bowl. Go figure.
So congrats, Brittany! I will be in touch with you at the email address you included when you commented, to make sure you’ve heard the good news, and Karen will be in touch with you within the next few days to plan your personalized gift! Yay! Maybe we can get a picture of it to post for everyone to see!
Now, I am guessing there are a few of you who have arrived today to discover that you didn’t win. I know how you feel, my friend…I, like, never win stuff. But well done for trying, it sure increases your chances! Hopefully we’ll have another give-away soon.
