‘Twas the Friday before Christmas and Steph is still a disorganized mess! I kid, I kid…kinda…sorta…I swear I almost have everything done! OK, OK, fine — in reality, I do not, in fact, have everything done, but I’ll get there, I always do! One thing I do have done is the winners of the Blaise
‘Twas the Friday before Christmas and Steph is still a disorganized mess!
I kid, I kid…kinda…sorta…I swear I almost have everything done!
OK, OK, fine — in reality, I do not, in fact, have everything done, but I’ll get there, I always do!
One thing I do have done is the winners of the Blaise Alexander Family Dealerships Christmas Fun Coloring Contest! It was another tough year of judging! Narrowing down hundreds of entries to just 30 winners isn’t an easy task, but luckily I had help! Tinsel McJingle, Freddy Gumdrop and Sparky Tinselbottom were amazingly helpful this year in not only helping me pick the winners, but keeping all the entries organized and the list of entrants straight! Again, with hundreds of entries each year, picking winners and compiling the list of kids isn’t an easy task! But like always, we got it done!
I have to also thank all of the amazing local businesses that are kind enough to pony up prizes for the kiddos too! So THANK YOU to Liberty Arena/Kaos, English Model Railroad, Elery Nau, Hooplas, Treasure Castle Playland, Harder Sporting Goods, AMC Theaters, Dairy Queen, Trout Pond Park and Outback Roos! We couldn’t do this without you!
Below are the first-place winners in each age group. Congrats to Brynley Busbee (4 and under), Arlo Steppe (5-7), and Lydia Tressler (8-10), y’all did an amazing job! There is also a list of each little elf who entered the contest and the rest of the winners beginning on page 6.
Congratulations to all our winners! Your prizes will be mailed this week!
Finally, I would like to wish each and every one of our readers the Merriest of Christmases! I hope that you all have a happy and healthy holiday. I hope that Santa finds you well and that we all remember the spirit of Christmas!
Speaking of Santa, I got a call from the Big Jolly Elf, saying that Tinsel McJingle didn’t make her flight back to the North Pole. She was last spotted visiting Reindeer Run in Linden, I heard she may be stuck on a pond? If you see her, please send her back to the office, she has a flight to catch ASAP!
