And The Winner Is . . . .

I can't believe today is the day I get to announce the  winner of our giveaway. 

Now, before we get down to our giveaway business, bare with me as I do a quick run-through of what is becoming a weekly event in this part of the world, the Sunday Snow Storm.

When you coop four Websters and a Skov up in a small house for any amount of time, it is inevitable that a competition of some sort is going to break out, but yesterday, we went over-the-top even for us.  Yesterday, will go down in history as the first ever Shenanigans Inc. Olympics. It was ridiculous!

It all started out when the kids decided to tie each other up and see who could break out of their bonds the fastest.

And the winner is . . .


Yep, Elliot broke out at 1 minute and 30 seconds, Avery had to be cut out at 2 minutes because he started to freak out, and Zoe did it in 2 minutes and 30 seconds.

tee hee!

I love my kids!

Then, because two wee Websters were walking away with bruised egos and felt an overwhelming need to redeem themselves, Elliot was challenged to an arm wrestling match.

And the winner is . . .


The winner of this match was . . .


And this one . . .


Of course I had to jump in on the action.  This battle actually lasted awhile, but in the end, the winner was . . .



Then both boys thought they would try and take Mr. Level-Headed down.

Nope.  That wasn't going to happen.

tee hee!

With the feats of strength completed, we moved onto to not one but two board games.  Avery won Seafarers of Catan, after his mama made a controversial move and traded him a brick for a sheep, which allowed him to build one final city to win the game.  Oh, the Websters were ticked!  Our next board game was the Harry Potter version of Clue, and and the winner was . . . Zoe!  Avery and I always guess way to early, Elliot gets lost along the way, and in the end it always comes down to Zoe and Mr. Level-Headed rushing to Dumbledore's office with the correct answer. Why do we even bother!

At the moment, the standings for the first ever Shenanigans Inc. Olympics are:

Zoe - 4 wins
Elliot - 2 wins
Avery - 1 win
Mr. Level-Headed - 1 win (I guess we could make that 3 wins since Zoe and I refused to challenge him in an arm wrestling match)
The Mama - 0


The Skov loses again.

Now, for what you have all been waiting for! I just have to say that I have the best readers in the world! I know this blog is silly, sometimes self-indulgent, and almost always sappy, and so I feel I must thank you for putting up with me and playing along. You guys rock!  Oh, and I had so much fun hosting this giveaway that I am sure we will be having another one in the near future. We need something to boost our spirits amidst all this snow.

Drum roll please.

And the winner is . . .
