And the winner is...

...well, to be quite honest we had a difficult time "randomly" choosing a winner. Each persons story made us laugh and we enjoyed reading your favorite quotes!

Our special favorite story was from Becca,

"For my comical memory: One day our neighbor gave us a great big stuffed monster. It was about six-feet long and orange with big purple polka-dots. It was stuffed tightly with little Styrofoam balls. Mama said we must throw it away because it might pop and make a mess. So we put it in our garbage dumpster, but it didn’t fit! Its head stuck out and made it look like Oscar the Grouch. Later, our other neighbors’ cleaning ladies saw it. They squealed and took it away!"

And our favorite quote was from our friend Joseph,

"There is no disgrace in a failure, only in a failure to try."
-Theodore Roosevelt

In the end we decided for Mom to pick names out of a hat, and she pulled out...

OK. Now I must protest in WRITING. I tried to offer a verbal and personal rebuttal but I was ignored. Now I have to post so all can see. I'm sure Laura could be a gracious winner however, I'm the rightful winner of this contest! I'd like a bike rack for my car. Thanks for all you do and your encouragement!
