Winner of Shadow Eyes e-book: Julie Klein!
Winner of The Memory Jar: Marissa Ehresman!
Winner of Christmas: God With Us CD: Karen K.!
The winners have all been contacted via e-mail, and they have the rest of this week to get back to me before I pick another winner. Congratulations to all three of you ladies, and thank you to everyone who entered the drawings and shared their enthusiasm for books and Christmas music!
And since we're on the subject of winners and what-not, guess what my mom and I recently achieved??
Yes, we earned all 5 stars on the New Super Mario Bros. Wii game!! And not just 5 plain old stars, which we earned a while ago, but 5 sparkly stars! Care to see them up close?
OK, we're slightly obsessed... But after months and months of playing the game, it was pretty awesome to complete everything (all the main levels, all the "secrets," all the star coins, the secret level, and the star coins in the secret level)! (And we discovered - thanks to some guy on YouTube, I believe - that in order to earn "sparkly" stars, you have to beat everything without having Luigi come and help you. If you play with more than one player, though, this is never a problem, which is cool!)
Anyway, most of the credit goes to my mom - she's become quite skilled at this game, let me tell you! ;) It's fun to have something you can play together and use to challenge yourself.
Any other fans of Super Mario Bros. Wii out there? What types of games do you enjoy playing with your family?
