HAPPY GROUNDHOG DAY!
Well, I don’t know about you guys, but I want some spring flowers! The good news out of Punxsutawney is that Phil did NOT see his shadow, so we are getting an early Spring!
Let’s celebrate! Happy Dance! AND enter The Groundhog Day Fun Photo Contest!
Susanna Leonard Hill author of the awesome book, Punxsutawney Phyllis (about a cute little groundhog determined that she can be THE groundhog on Groundhog Day) is doing the contest. Ms. Hill wrote “Punxsutawney Phyllis” (see my review HERE) and April Fools Phyllis (see my review HERE).
The rules of the contest are, get a Phyllis Colorable Action Figure (AKA paper doll, find it HERE). Color and cut and maybe add a popsicle stick then -
“take her outside to a location of your choosing on the morning of Saturday February 2 (also known as Groundhog Day!) and photograph Phyllis (she’s very photogenic!)”
“Post the picture on your blog any time between Saturday February 2 and Monday February 4th and in the caption underneath (or a post if you’re feeling expansive) tell us where she is (e.g. Mount Everest, Nepal or Chicago, Illinois), the weather conditions (e.g. sunny and -12 degrees) and whether or not she saw her shadow (and hence whether she’s predicting an early spring or 6 more weeks of winter.)“
Here is my entry:
Phyllis didn’t see her shadow, for it was snowing and cold . It is 18.5*F in (literally) our tiny town in Pennsylvania.
My sister also entered the contest and posted her picture on her blog. Please click HERE and go to see it.
