Stocking Giveaway Winners!

My favorite cookie monster in the whole wide world decided this morning that he wanted to draw the names for the stockings!

I loved the idea, so I prepared the paper slips while he donned his "Santi" atire!

I was in stitches when he showed up to draw names with his satin blind fold (normally a part of our wedding photography cache and reserved for grooms removing garters!)

He was determined that the drawing be completely fair!
