(Drumroll) And the Winner IS…..

A week ago I made a post about Stroopwafels and invited readers to make a comment so that they could be in the draw to win some of their own.

Well, the draw has been duely made and a winner has been selected at random by the maybe-not-quite-so-well scrubbed mits of Little Mr. (next stop for him is the bathtub).

I placed the slips in a bowl and put it high enough so that Little Mr couldn’t see the names inside and asked him to draw out one slip. He made sure to have a scrunchy feel of all the little pieces of paper before he chose one,(he’s six, after all, so choosing a piece of paper he couldn’t even see, took a whole minute to eek out the drama)

Drumroll and fanfare please:  The WINNER IS:

This rummage went on for a full minute… I think he had his hand on every slip at one point or another…

Finially the moment of decision…

    • P.S. Meant to tell you–Kiah did enjoy her Paris trip very much. She liked all of Europe. She’ll be coming home to spend a month with us starting this Tuesday. Can’t wait for her arrival!
