Fair Results

Well, the fair has come and gone and we had a great time each time we visited which I must say was three more times than I intended. Our entry results were not what I had hoped for and I know I should be thankful for being able to enter things. It's just sometimes I wish I had a better idea of what the judges were looking for.

I walked away with five ribbons. I will post what I won later because I don't remember everything (old age catching up with me!), but I do know I won five and the best was third place. Maybe I will do better next year.

Mattie May received a "Participant" ribbon on her bulldog she entered and was excited to see it in the display. Of course Grumpy and Lolo were a little disappointed for her. Let's just say some of the entries seemed to have a "little" help being made! I just don't believe in this. If the child is going to make it, let them make it. I will tell you the story of a Christmas ornament contest Katie entered one year. It's a great story and a huge confidence builder.

This week we are busy getting ready for our trip to Del Rio. EXCITED!!! Ready to see some friends I haven't seen since last year! And hoping we fish well and have lots of fish to weigh in! Maybe we'll even win this year! That would be great!

So until next week sometime!

God Bless You All

Fair Time!

I can not believe that it is time for the West Texas Fair. Time just goes by so quickly. I got all my entries in this year, the most I have had in a while. I was so excited to see there is a Digital Scrapbook category now. I entered our vacation book I made earlier this year. Hope I do well. I will let you all know if I won anything.

But I do believe the most exciting thing was Mattie May got to place her first entry in the fair. There is one category for Pre-Beginners in the Youth Hobbies and Crafts. She entered George, a ceramic bulldog she painted for me at Christmas. Here is a picture of her turning in her entry.

It was a bit difficult for her to understand that we would have to leave it there for a week, but she was finally OK with that. What she was most unhappy with was the fact all the rides were there and we wouldn't let her ride them! It took a minute but she did get in the car so we could come home.

To all my friends and family with entries, I hope you all do well and I can't wait to see all your entries!

God Bless you all!
