Here ye, Here ye! Winners are drawn!
It’s the first day of December and here at MommaOh’s we have completed the drawing for the two personalized aprons. I must say we had fabulous Thanksgiving eats and I owe a lot of it to your recipes. Wow! Each one was as yummy as the one listed above and below. You gals know how to cook.
Since my husband was sooooo appreciative of your submissions, he acquiesced to my request and pulled the names from the official MommaOh blue drawing bowl. So without further aggrandizing the winners are……Adult Apron Winner is Marsha Gardner and Child’s Apron Winner is Caroline.
However I think I am the biggest winner of all this time with all the great recipes! I am very thankful to every one who participated.
Well time to find just the right envelope with the backside completely empty so I can start on my Thanksgiving menu since we will be home this year. Have you noticed it’s harder to find just the right envelope since snail mail is less plentiful than it used to be? Perhaps this year I’ll use the keyboard and printer instead of licking the end of my pencil pensively prior to writing each item on my list. Regardless of how the menu is compiled I could use some great recipes.
So add your favorite Thanksgiving recipe animal, vegetable or dessert; it doesn’t matter as long as it is wonderful and you don’t leave out any ingredients. Your reward for sharing? Your recipe will be your entry for a personalized/monogrammed apron….just in time for holiday baking!
One recipe will enter you for 2 drawings one for an adult apron and one for a child’s apron. So dig out your cranberry secrets or your clandestine L-tryptophan hints and comment* on this posting to enter. Be sure to check back through out the month and pick up recipes for your Turkey Day Dinner. Mark December 1, 2009 on your calendar as the winners will be posted and it may be you! Contest only open to mailing addresses in the US and Canada.
*Comments are not immediately posted. Be assured they will be approved and shown as expeditiously as possible.

Hot off the virtual presses is the latest issue of Modern Handmade Child a free online magazine chocked full of cookie and warm beverage recipes, articles on decor, slow food, surviving the holidays and great gift idea!
Be sure and look for my ad in the back of the magazine! It looks just like this….
Lucky little Ava! This is a cute chef’s cotton/poly blend hat and apron that has been embroidered and embellished with ribbon. A perfect gift for the little ones in your life. Listed on MommaOh.etsy.com ….see you there!
It seems each year the catalogs arrive earlier and earlier to grab your gift giving dollars. The beginning of October found the first ones in my post box. A new, at least to our address, children’s catalog called www.chinaberry.com arrived in the first flurry. While flipping through it I found a game called Bananagrams that visually caught my attention. As I read about the game I saw it had won the Toy Industry of America’s 2009 Best Game of the Year Award and was for 1 to 8 players, ages 7+.
I liked it because it was like Scrabble but less restricting and it was played quickly so many games could be enjoyed. Although it didn’t encompass the math skills Scrabble does, Bananagram is very portable. The price seemed reasonable at $17.95 (+s&h) but my mind drifted to the scrabble games we already owned and all those tiles…..
So for the backseat of her minivan I think that MommaOh should make her own bag and fill it with recycled Scrabble tiles from the games in the basement. It won’t be the same as Bananagram but our own rules can be made and the math can be added back in if we want. I’m sure it won’t win any awards but it will still be fun, educational and if I reuse a bag from around the house, our game will be comprised with all recycled items. Yeah, I’m good with not winning an award.
Hmmm now what should I name my upcycled bag of tiles game? ‘MommaOh My Word’ of course. What will you name yours?
“All the little birds on J-Bird Street love to hear the robin goin’ tweet tweet tweet….” Yeah MommaOh is tweeting on Twitter. Will technology show no mercy on those of use who are at the top of the hill (age wise) trying to enjoy the view? Well until that happens you can find out what’s going on with MommaOh on twitter now. My MommaOh moniker was already claimed by another so I am MommaOhcom. If you tweet I’d love to hear from you!
Using my state of the art drawing system like last time BUT asking my dear daughter to pick the names, we have winners!
Without further ado:
Jennifer= Candy Corn (and I need your addy)
Suzanne A= Boo (I have your address?)
Angela = Black Cat (I need your addy)
Jacquie = Bats N Cats (I need your addy)
Last but certainly not least, Jan S = Jack-O-Lanterns (I need your addy)
So if you winners can send me (firstname.lastname@example.org) your mailing addresses tonight. I can pop them into the mail tomorrow so you can have them for Halloween!! Congratulations for being lucky!
