Merry Christmas! ~updated~

I hope everyone had a great time with family and friends this holiday season!

I may have a Christmas gift for you. If you are interested in either of these apps, leave a comment on this post, tell me which app you'd like, and I will pick a "winner" by tomorrow night TUESDAY, December 27th at 10:00 EST. I will post winning names in the comments section or email you if I have your contact information after 10:00 EST. (Winners will be chosen from blog comments and email replies.) Good Luck!

Both apps are by Artgig Apps. If you are on facebook, stop by their page, become a fan, and say "Thanks" for allowing me to be a "Secret Santa" this Christmas!

Being Benny - Join Benny on an adventure into an imaginary world! Benny escapes the doldrums of a rainy day by imagining himself as a variety of different things: From rocket ships to dinosaurs, nothing is off-limits! Brightly colored, playful illustrations guide you through Benny’s adventure.

Shake-a-Phrase - a fun language app that teaches vocabulary and parts of speech for ages 8+. Perfect for learning and laughing in the classroom or on-the-go, this lightweight app features over 2,000 words and definitions in 5 colorful and engaging themes.

Good Luck!

** I decided to give an extra day to enter due to the holiday today and some people not having access to the internet. ** I hope you understand! Please share with others. **
