And the award goes to ...

Avree Anne Sandberg Ethington!! (The girl, not the baby ... How could the baby earn gold stars? Well, he could be for being so stinkin' cute, but he's illiterate and would get most of the poll questions wrong.)

Ladies and gentlemen, this is an exemplary story of persistence. I am sure most of you thought Brandon, Adam, or Chance (who all held out strong at the top for the entire year) would win this prestigious award ... But, no ... While Avree never held a top three position, she remained steady and faithful. Annnnd with a last ditch effort surge, made her way to the front of the pack!

Avree is pretty much one of my favorite people on the planet, and so it brings me great pleasure for me to give her this award.


Have you noticed I don't really know what to call the award? "Most Golden Stars" award sounds pretty much lame. Maybe 10 golden stars to whomever comes up with the best name for it. Or, Avree can come up with something she likes because she is the first recipient. Anywhoot, Congrats Avree! And good luck to everyone else for this upcoming year! :)

Yeah, and you thought I'd have some crazy Mother's Day tribute posted today. That'd be super nice and fancy and all ... but my mom doesn't read my blog ... So, I don't think it's the most brilliant idea to tribute her here. No, no ... I will wait to do so in person. In song, dance, and puppet show. But for what it's worth ... my mom is soooo better than your mom. ;)

I think this would make a good name for the award: "The First Annual Mindy Thornley Award For Outstanding Achievement In The Field of Excellence."

Congrats to Avree! Way to go! Way to top out Chance, Adam & Brandon! This years award should be the "Golden Girl" Award! (Wasn't that a TV show???)

The award should be the bragging rights award, or something the the effect of the most diligent follower/friend etc award. Something to make her special! Love ya Mindy! :)

I think the Avree Award has a nice ring to it.

Woohoo! I just barely found out about this because I'm out of town! I like Toni's suggestion, but only if in future years you still call it The Avree Award. It seems befitting since I am the pioneer of this award. Or you could call it the, "has a lot of time on their hands and likes to stalk-blogs award", but that's kind of wordy.
