And the winners are.....

Are you ready?

Just a second, hold your horses! First I wanted to thank you all for the comments you made. I loved hearing what you all want to leave as your legacy and what you want others to think of when they think of you and your life. I loved the simple things - like wanting to be known as being the fastest cookie eater (although I think Dad definetly has you beat Jed!) and I also loved ones like being a good missionary, a good friend, a great problem solver, or being dedicated. The list goes on and on - I think you all have fabulous goals to work towards - and many of you are mastering those (at least from where I can see!)

And secondly I wanted to say thank you for all of the kind comments that so many of you made. I hadn't written my original post to boost my confidence - and I wasn't trying to throw myself a pitty party about being known as a stressed out person. It was simply an observation I had made, and a feeling I had after some recent comments from some people. Anyway - I really appreciated all of the comments - many brought a tear to my eye, and helped me to see myself in some nice ways. Thank you guys - it meant a lot to me. (more than you'll know!)

So now the reason you're reading this post - you want to know if you won the movie - right? We had 16 people respond to my question. So I wrote down 1-16 on slips of paper and had Gabe draw the winners. The winners were:

#3 - Jed

#11 - Mom

And for fun - #12 - Kristi

So Jed - you get to choose first which DVD you'd like.

Then Mom will get the movie that Jed doesn't choose.

And Kristi - I'll pick something fun to send you because I love sending fun mail out! (almost as much as I love getting fun surprise mail!)

I never win drawings. This is really a defining moment for me.

I like both movie choices, but Ratatouille is my favorite. Alli will be SO stoked.

Every time we cook together, Alli tells me that she can cook way better than that rat on the movie because he can only cook soups :)

Thanks so much Joanna!

Yay Jed! A lifetime dream come true. You won a drawing! :)

I add my thanks to Jed's. It is nice to add to my Grandma supply. Most of all, thanks for giving us the challenge to think about what legacy we want to leave. My greatest legacy will without a doubt be our wonderful children and grandchildren!

Love, Mom
