First of all, let me say that I'm so sorry to keep any of you waiting! It certainly wasn't supposed to be that way! We had circumstances not expected, so the drawing of a name was a little different than what I anticipated.
It was supposed to be a typical Thursday around here (that's why I chose this time). We would take a break from school to draw out the winner. But instead we were at the Dr.'s office in town. My hubby, Jason, has been off work sick since Tuesday with bronchitis and a bursted blood vessel causing much pain in his leg....and the cure ended up being worse than the sickness...bless his heart! He had an allergic reaction to one of his medicines (which one we don't know) and he's just been miserable....no sleep for him (or me for that matter). Good news was that he did not have a blood clot in his leg though! So long story shorter, we were back in the Dr.'s office this morning at 9:30 a.m., but we did take the laptop along with us so we could check for last minute comments before the drawing and add them to the bucket and choose a winner.
Here's the bucket of entries. We really did need the bucket (for room to mix them), as we actually had 181 entries total. Jason mixed them up really well numerous times!
Of course, Joy "had" to be the one to pull out a winner....so with eyes closed, she reached in.......and pulled out a winner!
Would you like to know who it was? hee! hee!
Okay, well it was..............
