And the winner is....

Thanks so much for everyone who participated. I had Lucas draw a name, which he completely enjoyed (I had him do it while Alex was sleeping to help prevent the end of the world) and the winner is...

Erika from Erika's Procrastination Corner!

You should check out her blog and the amazing Father's Day week she and her girls put on for her husband. Such cute ideas that I am completely going to steal for next year :)

Congrats Erika! Please e-mail me your address. You can email me at emmy (at) emmymom2 (dot) com

**So for any of you that entered early on or didn't enter.. you probably missed the following comment posted by one of my big brothers. You seriously need to read this, it is long but well worth it :)**

I smell trouble brewing in the world of Emmy Mommy Blog world. First, she gets 25 followers and then I see today, shortly after the announcement of the give away, you have 32 followers. No doubt people trying to get in on the bounty of the giveaway.

Next thing you know, it will be contest day, Alex and Lucas will both try and pull a name at the same time and a fight will ensue. Lucas will insist it was his turn and Alex will cry saying why does he always get to go first, to which Lucas will conclude he is older and that is how it works. Screaming, weeping, wailing, nashing of teeth later and Eric will then be called upon to just pull a name and get this whole thing over with.

Alex and Lucas will both be distraught that the name they pulled didn't win. You will post the results, and then the scandal will start. Lucas and Alex will post competing blogs about the social injustices that happen at home. They will focus on how the first giveaway was rigged. They will post the names of the person they pulled and give reasons for why the name they pulled was the official winner. People will start taking sides arguing across the 3 blogs about how the election results were rigged by the dictatorship government of the Emmy Mommy.

Before you know it, the followers of your blog will be making signs and having protests outside your house. At first it will be the 3 winners all on the lawn, each with a sign. Then the followers of the blog will arrive and it will be 3 groups of about a dozen a piece.

Then the local news will pick it up, and suddenly the 3 blogs will have 500 followers a piece and the crowds on your lawn will grow to 400 people.

Then the National news media will pick up the feed because of the crowds and the blogs and number of people on the lawn will grow to thousands. Your town will suddenly be engulfed with angered blog followers all demanding justice for their chosen candidate. It will be a scene of mass chaos. One group sitting on the lawn, all handcuffed together singing hippy songs of love about how their candidate should win.

One group will have turned feral and wild and be hiding amongst the bushes and the trees of the nearby forest preserve. Tales of people going missing being "taken" by the crazy followers who live in the bushes.

The final group will begin arming themselves like a paramilitary group claiming they will take the prize by force if reason is not seen and it handed over freely.

Chaos and pandemonium will break out and the fighting begin. The governor will call in the National Guard, who will be repulsed at the ferocity of the blog followers assault. The Army will be called in, the Marines will arrive, air support will be called in. President Obama will call the leaders of the group to come to a peaceful resolution before he has to use deadly force.

The peace conference will fall apart and all out war will be waged. Eric, Lucas and Alex will all call to their followers and say it is not safe and they will all take their follower to form their own nations so they can group together and better prepare for war.

The wars will escalate, one side will result to biological warfare, one chemical warfare, the final will favor nuclear strikes.

The final scene plays out with the world broken and destroyed and all that remains is the small prize of the giveaway laying in a muddy field of combat.

Yup, no good can come of this contest giveaway. The end of the world is neigh at hand. I think, now that we have had a glimpse of the future and what lies before us, it would be best to just send all the knick nacks to me and I will lock them away for safe keeping and we can overt the world war now before it ever begins.

So just wrap those up in a box along with all the CHOCOLATE you own me because you stole all of your siblings chlorate when we were little as well and ship them my way! ;P {Refer to this post to know what he is talking about here}

Anyone new to my posts, I am her pretty insane older brother and I have an overactive imagination and do not have too many creative outlets so all that pent up creativity ends up in posts here on her blog...maybe I should just start my own blog but we do not want that war happening! ;)

Yes, Aaron you should start a blog! I will definitely follow it... well as long as you have a giveaway that is ;)

Congrats again to Erika


  1. Yay! I won! Thanks!
    Haha! So does this mean that I won't get 500 followers and my group won't become the wild feral ones, like newborn vampires, who cause the missing persons number to rise? I was really looking forward to starting up some biological warfare... Oh well, I suppose we should thank you Emmy, for helping to keep the peace. And thank Alex for still needing his nap. And Lucas for his excellent winner pulling skills. He deserves a candy bar for sure.

    And I look forward to reading about your Daddy Days next year! :)

  2. Oh, Sorry!!!! I meant, thank Alex for still needing HER nap!! I'm so horrible, sorry!

  3. Your brother is funny! Fun to read.
