Caption Results!

Thanks, everyone, for participating in the caption contest! I also appreciate all the birthday wishes for my daughter. We had a really great day.

It was a difficult choice... one we narrowed down to three before making a final decision. They were:

spyscribbler with "Where'd that brownie go?" [Girl, you know no one better hide my brownie.]

Joanne with "Shh. Mommy's on the phone with her agent!" []

Jen with "Oh noes! She's wearing the same dress! Quick, under the table!" [Makes me giggle wildly.]

[I was going to post the photo for one last look, but my husband already turned his computer off. I can't retrieve the photo from the network - without traipsing down two long flights of stairs into the dark and cold basement to turn his machine back on. So please refer to Saturday's post for the picture... Really, all you need do is scroll down a hair...]

And the winner is... JEN! Love the scene it creates in my mind, and how well it matches Emma's "surroundings." Well done, Jen.

For you, a limerick.

Jen's a nice gal from the Midwest,
She writes and cracks jokes with zest.
Her days filled with noise,
She's outnumbered by boys,
Now if someone'd just give her a rest!

Meh. Not my best of limericks, but you get the idea. And at least I didn't have you escaping sharks... with lasers. ;)

Thanks again, everybody! 'Twas fun.

Loved it and yeah Jen!!! Hope your day is a great one!!

Angie Ledbetter said...

Congrats to the winner and the limerick-maker who "owns" the cute kidlet in the pic.

Joanne said...

Congratulations to Jen, great caption there. Fun contest, cute limerick too Janna!

Jen said...

Thanks, Janna! I'm glad you liked the caption, and the limerick you wrote for me made ME giggle like mad. :D

Even the hubby laughed when he saw it, so well done, and thank you. *hugs*

Thanks, ladies, for the congrats. It was such a cute picture, wasn't it?

Jen said...

P.S. Sharks with lasers, ROFL. That would have been interesting. :D

Janna Leadbetter said...

Terri - I'm so glad to see you semi-regularly again. I've missed you!

Angie - Thanks, lady. :)

Joanne - I really, really liked yours a lot!

Jen - You are so welcome!

Janet said...

Outnumbered by boys? Maybe I had better pass on to Jen the Testosterone Tolerance Award bestowed on me by a (male) online friend. Display it with pride, Jen. (Which can be really tricky with virtual awards.)

Kathryn Magendie said...

Happy Birthday to your daughter -how'd I miss that?

(by the way- your book will be on its way- being mailed today!)

Congrats to the winner!

Kelly said...


I, however, am still looking forward to hearing about sharks...

Melanie Hooyenga said...

Ha! I love the caption AND the limerick. Well done! I'm glad you had a great day with your little one.

Janna Leadbetter said...

Janet - That sounds like a well-deserved award!

Kathryn - That's okay. ;) Everyone has their own stuff going on over the weekend. And thanks! I'll watch for it with excitement!

Kelly - Okay, I'll let him know and we'll see what we can do. ;) No promises!

Melanie - Thanks! I can't believe how time has flown.

Haha, too funny!

Jewel Allen said...

Wow, I've never had anyone write a limerick featuring me before.

Lucky Jen!

Boy Spy, if she doesn't get bribed with brownies, I don't know what would...

ChristaCarol Jones said...

Aw, sorry I missed this one Janna! The past few days have swamped me with baby related stuff! Congrats to Jen tho, very cute! And I laugh when I hear about sharks with lasers. Does it have anything to do with Austin Powers? :P

Janna Leadbetter said...

Colby - It was fun!

Jewel - Maybe someday you'll have a turn! And re: brownies - I know, right? ;)

ChristaCarol - I understand! When's you're due date? Soon, I know. Hurray for baby!
