The beans just got home and it has been raining/ freezing rain for a couple of days now. They were supposed to be home yesterday morning but couldn't make it as the road was treacherous. They always leave us extra food and water so we were OK but the PM was worried as this was the first time Banshee was left out with us while they were away. Banshee was very well behaved though. The PM was happy to see the Christmas tree in one piece and still standing but not so pleased with the 8 inches of water in the basement! Our basement is only 4 feet high so we don't keep anything down there. Quite a mess though.

The PM took some time out of the craziness to do our draw. Thank you so much for all the comments! We put everyone in for the draws, even our overseas friends as the PM wanted all included.

She put all the names on pieces of paper and the wee ones each picked out one.

The wee lad went first and picked the winner of the fray cat ray rug and the winner is......

Our good friend, Victor!! Oh, the lovin' that's going to be going on on that mat!!!!!

The PM finished our shrews as she was smart and brought them in town with her.

She had to hide them from us as we were going a bit crazy with them!

The wee lass picked out the name for this draw. The winner of the toy shrews is....

Our wonderful friend, Fui !!!

The PM was laughing as both of our winners were from "Down Under"!! The wee lad didn't know what she thought was so funny. The PM said she should have made a video of the drawing but her brain is a bit frazzled!!

Fui, we have your address from the Christmas cards and we'll put your shrews in the mail tomorrow!
Victor, you can send us your address at danica_130 at yahoo dot com and we'll get the love mat out to you!

This is going to be a crazy weekend but we are going to try and visit as many of our friends as we can.

Have a great one, all!!!!

We're so glad your beans got home safely. We're so sorry we missed the drawing, but the prizes look fantastic. Congrats to the winners. Those shrews are so cute!

Oh wow oh wow! What an exciting day! I have never won anything (unless you count the time the vet said "congratulations, it's a UTI)! Thankyou very much Goldie!

We are glad that your family are home safe. Our mum has also taken to leaving extra food and water out because we've had so many storm warnings. We are also part of the neighbourhood cat watch, incase of a cyclone. Good on Banshee for being a good girl while the parents were away:)

And thankyou again!:)

Big congratulations to the winners! Those are some lovely prizes. Vic is gonna be such a schmuggle bunny on that balnket and Sui, Fui and the kittens are gonna be going wild for those cute shrews! Very glad your apes are home safe, but I'm disappointed that you didn't redecorate that tree! How could you resist?

Karen Jo said...

I think that it's really cool that Victor and Fui won the prizes. Both of them have new kittens and I am sure that the blanket and shrews are going to get a real workout. Those shrews are really cute.
