The time has come, the walrus said, to find out who won the Alexandra Ivy contest!
We're running down to the wire on days before Christmas, so the voting committee has already gone on vacation and were not available to participate in this contest.
I had a very elaborate setup for the Marutanchi to go apple bobbing for the winner, but Chuck, the woodchuck totally chewed holes in all of the barrels. This resulted in us having a LOT of apples, and no way to bob for them.. therefore, I had to improvise.
Murasaki found an old Christmas stocking and suggested that we simply pull names from it. That seemed like a reasonable idea to me until I realized that it wasn't just pulling a name out, Murasaki wanted to practice with her fishing rod; fishing for names.
It took a little while to finally hook one, but finally we had a winner!
Congratulations Kaia! You now have one week to contact Katie at k28dalton at yahoo dot com.
