I Got Dumped – Polls Are Open!

110+ picture entries later, I think it’s safe to say that the “You Got Dumped” Contest was a success. However, I am relieved that the agonizing task of picking a Top Ten is over! Okay, before I loose all the readers to my blog except for the 10 who’s pictures were chosen, let’s just remember this is a friendly little competition for a prize of little value, with really no criteria of what made a “good entry”. The Top Ten is simply my measly opinion and for the record, YES, I do think you’re kids are THE cutest in the whole planet!

A Top 100 Would have made for quite a L-O-N-G, Time Consuming, Memory Eating, Blog Post or I might have considered it seriously. Thankfully, I do not have to decide a winner! That’s your job readers!

Hurry…Polls Close on Tuesday (11:59pm)!

Oh and the mystery prize is a gift card to Starbucks. Have a Peppermint Hot Chocolate on The Murray Crew!

If you feel the need to justify your vote, please comment away! Happy Voting!

    What a great idea to run such a competition. The photos are all so different (not to mention fantastic). I guess it depends on which one strikes a cord with you.

    I’ve placed my vote – tough decision as each of the photo’s had something in it that appealed to me.

    You are an inspirational woman – having quads and managing to find the time to organise and oversee such fun competitions. Thank you for running this contest.

    This is a fantastic idea, and just felt the need to share that all of the photos are touching and sweet and unique! Love the different styles and precious moments they have captured!

    Jen this is an awesome contest! Kudos to you for running it when you obviously have NOTHING else to do HA!

    Anyway, I was wondering if there might be a way to link to the participant’s blogs and maybe include a bit of an explanation (if they gave you one in your email!) I know, I’m demanding. No pressure. I can’t wait to see who wins!!

    It was a tough decision, but I voted for #2 because it is just so absolutely beautiful and captures the moment really well. At first I thought it was a water spout/tornado, but then I read these comments. #3 also cracked me up and I would really like to know what happened to the boy in #7!
