Cuteness and Wootness

I know all you Emma fans out there are anxious to know how the walk went, and though I haven't talked to her dad, he did send me a couple of pictures from the day.

They got up bright and early if the text time is to be believed. I mean really, what kind of barbarian starts events that requires you be up, dressed and on the road by 9am? Clearly Emma agrees with me.



See? She's all, WHAT THE HELL, MAN? I need my beauty sleep!


But, like the champ that she is, she rallied and even allowed them to festoon her with bandanna's and then snap more pictures.

Then, her dad forgot that he was supposed to be updating us and next thing you know?

Finish line.

Then it's back to the hotel to go swimming with mommy and daddy. Or, well, swimming with daddy, who is no doubt going to be thrilled I posted a picture of him shirtless on the Internet, but hey! You don't want to be half naked on the web? This blog is NOT the place for you.

Check out that smile! What a doll! And you know why she's happy? Because her $2000 goal was met after all! Woot!

A big thank you to everyone who took the time to donate.

Our final blog reader donation tally came from Lorrie, Eric, Sheila, Ruby, Racie and an A. Nonny Mouse. Crabgrass and I also both donated, but I'm leaving us out of the drawing for the purse. Which I have used a super secure drawing method that you all might remember from the game M.A.S.H. which involved drawing a spiral until I was told to stop by my handy assistant Brett. I then listed the names in order of donation and crossed them off every time I reached the number "12" which is the amount of rings in my spiral.

Which brings us to the DRUM ROLL!!!!!!!!!!

Congrats to Sheila! Woot! Sheila has no blog, or I would link it here. Which is a hint, Miss S to go and START A BLOG because those of us that know you know that you are one funny girl!

This is a yearly event, so start saving your lunch moneys and we'll do this again next year with an equally fabulous prize!

Yay, Sheila! I'm so happy that Emma met her goal and had a great walk!

Sheila said...

I am SO excited that Emma's goal was met, and would only be more so if these donations helped find a cure. She is a doll (love her smile!!), and I was just happy to help.

Of course, I am also pretty happy about winning me a new Coach handbag. Mama loves her some handbags...plus it's an excuse to buy some new shoes & ensemble to go with it. Right? Right!!

Thanks Thystle!!
