And the winner is...EMILY!

WAY back in October-ish, Emily's school finished up a fundraiser were the students sold entertainment books. Emily sold ten, and for every so many that you sold, you got "scratch cards" with codes on the back that you entered online to see if it was worth a prize. Emily won a candy grabber and we were told it would be delivered sometime in March or April. WELL, it arrived yesterday and it's decently fun, but mostly impossible to get any candy because the claw only goes around the perimeter instead of being able to fully move around within the grabber machine. It always plays obnoxiously LOUD music (which we've since muffled with a piece of tape). For a free prize, it's pretty awesome, I guess, but be warned: DO NOT SPEND YOUR MONEY TO BUY ONE.

that music would drive me bonkers :-)
I must say, that is a pretty cool free prize, though. :-)
Thank you for your comment on my post about Monkey's first 18 months. Poor thing had his checkup today and now he has another ear infection. Ugh.
Oh well, the Lord has his plans.
Your story touched me, too!
Thank you for coming over and commenting!
Your kids are gorgeous!!

That is one awesome free prize!! I bet that will provide hours of entertainment! And, stomping around in frustration will do two things: 1. burn off the calories they are about to consume if they ever are able to catch the candy, and 2. keep adults out of Emily's candy stash!

LOL!!!!!!! I am laughing my butt off at your comment after the little video. A toy that keeps them occupied is only worth it if it doesn't make them frustrated. I woudl end up smashing the thing open with a baseball bat to get my chocolate out.

The Wii is awesome, but so difficult to find. We were lucky enough to get one for Christmas from my in-laws...
