Abby's Ipad contest

Abby's Orthodontist sponsored a week long patient appreciation contest last week. For 7 days you could try to get as many people as possible to go to the orthodontist website and vote for a patient's picture.
Well, Abby got it in her mind she reallly wanted to win this thing and so we sent out email and face book messages the first day and she jumped ahead by about 50 votes!
Then another little girl started coming on strong, so Abby began making "Vote for Abby" signs for peoples cars, stickers to wear..it was crazy! She streamed the Internet to the wii and we watched the votes climb each day on the tv in the living room!

By the last day, her and second place were neck and neck. She had her grandparents calling and emailing all their friends. Greg and I were even inboxing high school friends on facebook we hadn't talked to in 20 years! By Thursday at noon when the contest was over, Abby won by 68 votes and she had votes from 8 different countries! Her grand total of votes was 635!

On Friday night, she was given her Ipad! Talk about one happy little girl!!
Thanks so much for voting for her and putting up with us and all our campaigning for one crazy week. Oh and by the way, the Ipad is cooler than I ever imagined it would be!
