So, you may remember that last week we had a little photo contest to give away a brand spanking new Chicco twin stroller. I received numerous submissions. I was going to post them but then realized that nobody actually gave me permission to post them (that and it’s 10:10 p.m. and it would take me forever to upload all of them) so I think I’ll just post the winner. However, if you did submit a photo and don’t mind me posting it, let me know and I’ll do a follow-up post with the very worth also-rans.
Speaking of “very worthy,” I have to explain something about this contest that occurred to me very shortly after the stroller was made available. When it comes to judging something so subjective and personal like cute kids, I am absolutely, positively… a wimp. And the fact that I oohed and aahed over every photo that was submitted only confirmed my wimpiness since I knew that I was not going to be able to pick a winner.
So, I did the next best thing… I assigned numbers to every entry and then used random.org to randomly pick a winner… with a few modifications. First, for obvious reasons, I have a bias for those who parent twins. It’s frickin’ hard, people! So, I gave each twin mom (no Dads entered this contest) one extra entry into the contest. Then, there was one person, Angelique, who entered the contest that pretty much stood out solely due to her situation. She has a two-year-old, a one-year-old and is pregnant with twins. (*shudder*) She also sent a pretty funny photo (think “Not too proud to beg using cute kids”). So, I gave her four entries – one for each kid. She deserved it.
So, I assigned random numbers (I separated the multiple entries) and then plugged my numbers into Random.org. Whose number did it call up? Well, for once, having the most entries actually worked!
Congratulations Angelique! You are the proud new owner of a Chicco Twin Stroller! And, it seems, you are really going to need it! Here is the winning photo…
And the stroller she won…
Thanks to all of you who participated! I really enjoyed all the great photos!
