Baby Pool Results

In a thin field of only 13 entries, Aunt Wendy Ratkowski once again took home the crown in the baby pool (of course, the odds were good, with the Ratkowskis accounting for nearly half the entries). Coming in a close second was Grandpa Dauernheim. The official stats were: November 7, 2006, 3:53 am; 7 pounds, 10 ounces; 19.5 inches long.
Thanks to everyone who participated, especially Wendy, who once again donated her winnings to Evan’s college fund, giving us $65 for our little man. With some other kind post-deadline baby pool entry fees, we will also donate some cash to get Evan to an even start with Ellie for a total of $225 to start in his college fund. Anyone else who didn’t get their entry in but still wants to donate $5 (or more), you know where we live.


Don’t forget to get your baby pool entries in by Wednesday. Anything postmarked after November 8 may be considered a direct donation to the college fund. So fill out the form, and send it in today. Trust me, you’ll want to do it sooner rather than later.

Baby Pool Entries

In case I missed you with my vast email distribution net, you can enter the official Baby Dauernheim Baby Pool by filling out this form and mailing it in with your entry fee. You can also just make a standard college fund contribution too, if you’d like.
Almost forgot to mention: For Ellie’s baby pool, we got 45 entries, resulting in a $112.50 windfall for the winner, Wendy Ratkowski. (Who promptly donated her winnings to Ellie’s college fund. Not that there’s any pressure on the winner to do so. Just saying, it was a nice thing to do. Ahem.)
