It's Time For Our First Monthly Give-Away!

Well?  Are you all feeling good about what you got done in January?  You should, because all the projects were spectacular!!  Twenty-four of you joined in to get a jump on your 2011 Christmas gifts, and I want you to give yourselves a huge pat on the back - you deserve it!

But now - it's time for a give-away!  I did this most scientifically.  And I even documented it.  First, I wrote all of your names on a piece of paper, cut them up, and folded them in half.

Then they went into the Official Give Away Jar.

Grabbed my lab assistant, who proceeded to shake things up.

[By the way, my lab assistant [Sam] had just had a rather lengthy shower - his hair is wet, not greasy.  *rolls eyes*]

After shaking for the required amount of time, he closed his eyes and reached his hand into the jar.

 And pulled out one piece of paper.

Then he opened it.

Can you see the name?  I zoomed in to get a closer look.

Do you know how hard it is to snap pictures while squealing "who is it?  who is it?"  

And he laid it on the table, so I could get a closer look, and of course to confirm his findings.

Yep, his results were accurate!


Peg, look for an email - I'll need your address!  

I hope you all had fun this month, I know I did - thank you all for playing along, you've motivated me and inspired me so much!  I can't wait to start February.  I'll be back soon with the kick-off post!  I need a nap first.  Went to bed at 2am, got up at 6am, ran all over town and I'm pooped!

One more thing - would you all please keep Jenny and Wendy in your prayers - a monster cyclone/hurricane is heading right at them.  Please pray the Lord will keep them safe.  Thank you!
