And the Winner is.....



SIDNEY!!!!



With first and second runners-up:

1. Nicholas


2. Erin


Honorable mention goes to:

Cecilia


Congratulations!!  (sorry, there is no prize.....)


Recap of winning moves:

Sidney--
By far the winner as she submitted her statement about a week after I found out myself.  Having suspected the last time around and NOT having said anything, thereby missing out on her chance to exhibit smugness, she  subsequently risked looking foolish spouting her claims to one and all, making potentially ridiculous statements on a daily basis.  I put her out of her misery quickly, letting her in on the subterfuge early on. Now she is free to legitimately claim: "I told you so!" to any interested parties.


First runner up:

Nicholas--
Edging out Erin chronologically and in spiritualness as he actually PRAYED the event starting about 6 weeks ago, whereas Erin only DREAMED the event less than a month ago.  Sorry Erin. Just admit you lost to a five year old.

However; you did beat out Cecilia--and I know how important that is to you.

Second runner up:

Erin--As mentioned before, Erin apparently dreamed the event, and was also unknowingly correct, but prayers trump dreams every time.  I will award extra points for not being fazed when I countered that I had dreamed that she was a polygamist. However; I must take away points for asking me straight out in front of Sidney's Prom Date and insisting to see my belly button, also in front of said prom date.....

And finally, our Honorable Mention contestant:

Cecilia--
For pointedly asking "So Tammy, are you cold?" at last Saturdays Activity Day brunch which was held inside the church.  Apparently my wearing of a jacket in the building was perceived as a literal cover-up.  And while I have no solid evidence, I believe Erin probably gave an advance heads up as these two converse frequently, and Erin so loves to cover her butt in situations like this....If, however, I am wrong on this and you came up with this totally on your own, Cecilia, I might be convinced to award extra points in this case.  

I feel that I do have to defend myself in one small thing:  I actually WAS cold and had been for days and didn't even perceive Cecilia's comment for what it was until later.....
shows how sharp I am.....

So if any others out there noticed the pretty much obvious state of things and opted to keep your mouth shut because you know of my proclivity for waiting to spill beans on issues like this, I thank you.  Even though you did not officially "win" with bragging rights, you win for discreetness and tact....or cluelessness...which I personally relate to more intimately anyway.

More information about what brand we're talking about will be forthcoming.......

TAMMY!! I knew it! Congratulations so hugely! If it wins me any bragging rights at all, I have to say that I recently wrote into my book a family living next to my main characters. Their last name is Merryweather, and they have eight kids. I'm just sayin'...

I now miss out on all the good stuff. According to Peggy's message, I can guess and wonder at the same time if you are going to have the same thing happen to you... that happened to me. I will definitely stay posted and wish you the best of luck!

Peggy said...

Whoa, Melanee. I didn't mean to imply that! Although, I'd doubly congratulate you if it were the case, Tammy! I only meant to say that I'm not sure I'll ever really believe that you are "done" having kids, Tammy. Even when you do stop growing them in your own oven. :)

In my defense, I noticed a couple of months ago that you seemed to be more of a homebody than usual and you gave me that lame excuse about being tired because you had been working on vague "projects" which I took to be somewhat suspicious since you would not elaborate.

Then I saw the dress you made for Sidney and tried to convince myself that maybe it really was just "projects" that were making it hard for you to "peel your butt off the couch"(your own words.) I waited for a couple more weeks before coming up with a sly enough remark.

What I actually wanted to do was innocently begin a private conversation about your theory on waiting to tell with the premise that I was thinking of keeping a secret of my own as long as I could, thus leading you to believe that I was in that condition.

You are too smart for that, though, and I am not crafty enough
.
So, thank you for the Honorable Mention. I am honored to receive it.

That is so sweet! I'm happy for you, Miss Merryweather! You go girl!

Piglet de' Erin said...

I AM THE TRUE WINNER! ME ME ME ME ME. Had sids prom date not been there, I would have actually request to smell your belly button. and therefore i would have been justly rewarded in knowing the truth. But since I had to restrain myself, my judgement at the time was slightly thwarted.

Anywhoo! I win win win win win. And as for your little kiddies, I don't think they should be allowed in the competition since they have the advantage of seeing you all day long and possibly 'accidently' seeing you in the buff or at least in garmies, then I think that nullifies their running in the contest.

So, therefore, I deem myself THE WINNER!

oh, and by the way, In my dream, you were having twins...any chance on that?

Drew and Kristine said...

Piglet de' Erin said...

Kendall said...

that is so cool! i am so excited for you!

Kristen Shumway said...

Tammy...have you told Jason yet, because I don't think he was planning on this...? Congratulations! You probably have little pink scraps left over from that prom dress, right?

ninja said...

Congratulations! I am excited to have another baby to hold (and give back)! Plus is always entertaining seeing Erin trying wrap herself around your belly.

Where have I been this whole time? Yeah, babies!

I hate that I am here, missing out on all the wonderfulness of life out there. I am happy for whatever it is you haven't actually said yet!
