Fair

Share this post

This week is our local fair.  For the first time ever, we entered some of our projects.  My older son entered a drawing and poem, my older daughter entered a drawing and peanut butter cookies. I even joined in and entered 2 photographs and fudge.


My daughter’s cookies won 3rd place!

My fudge won 1st place!. I don’t have any pictures of it though. A funny thing happened. I saw my name and the ribbon but it wasn’t with my fudge. I went to talk to a volunteer about it and she said that another of the entrants had come and said that she had the wrong fudge and she claimed that my fudge was hers. So they switched the plates. She assured me that it wasn’t switched before the judging and that if my tag had 1st on it I had definitely won. I was shocked to say the least. But, I didn’t take a picture because it wouldn’t have been of my fudge!

And another so you can see my little guy’s face.

    Wow, that's really weird. You'd think they'd have a more secure method for judging, and not he said/she said..lol.

    Great job with the wins and entries, I'll have to try and enter something at our next fair!(next sept). It sounds really fun!

    I'm drooling! The cookies look delicious & just the thought of fudge is making my mouth water! Congrats all around!

    Go Kristen! Good job on organizing your files!! Thanks for leaving the note on my blog.

    I like the plaid :-D. I'm afraid to touch my template, though, after I spent all that time adding the TOS thing, the affiliate link, etc!!

    Congratulations! I've thought about entering some things into the State Fair this year, but let the deadline pass by. Oh well – there's always next year.

    Those cookies are so yummy looking. PB cookies are my favorite. :) I wish our fair was as fun as it used to be. They didn't have anything like normal this year. A big let down.
