Drum roll, please. It’s time, as promised, to pick the two lucky monkeys for this year’s Christmas Giveaway!
In fact, I’m doing this live, with Lulu and Roy here beside me. The names of all subscribers to the Bilingual Monkeys Newsletter have been placed into a fuzzy Christmas stocking and Lulu and Roy will each put a paw inside and pull out one winner. These two winners will receive a $20 gift card for amazon.com!
Lulu’s hand dives deep into the stocking first, squirms about, and now reappears with a slip of paper bearing the name…
Roy is next, his hand a bit sticky from a half-eaten candy cane. He fishes about inside the stocking, papers rustling, and produces the name…
Congratulations, you two! Your prize will be emailed to you today! (And if your name happens to be Annika or Amy, and you don’t hear from me directly—so check your junk mail folder, just in case—I’m afraid the winner was a different Annika or Amy.)
Thanks to everyone who took part in this giveaway! If you didn’t win, well, don’t lose heart—it was the first giveaway for subscribers to the newsletter, but it won’t be the last!
Also, an announcement: Over the holidays I’ll take a short break from blogging, but I’ll be back with my first post of the new year on January 4. I look forward to a lively 2013 at Bilingual Monkeys and I’d be grateful for your ongoing support! (I’ll continue sending the newsletter on Sunday, though, so please sign up if you’re not already a subscriber.)
In the meantime, why not catch up with the articles you haven’t yet read? You can browse ideas on raising bilingual children within the ideas category, or find inspiration for this challenge in the inspiration category. You can also learn a lot more about my family’s adventures in raising bilingual kids by reading the page My Family and peeking into the My Family category.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
