County Fair

Our Country fair was last week. The girls and I submitted some open class exhibits for the first time. We all went through the booklet and picked out a few things to submit.

Hadassah chose peanut brittle, a photo album, and an antique cookbook:

Bella chose sugar cookies, a number of flower arrangements from her personal garden, an antique baby sweater, and a photo album:

I chose my Grandma's Lemon Loaf, parsley, and spearmint from our garden.

We went back later in the week to see how we did. We each received a number of blue ribbons and Hadassah received the Best of Division for Scrapbooking ribbon.

We went yesterday to pick up our items and were each given a check - I had no idea there was money involved! Hadassah and I each won $5 and Bella won $16.50 plus a $5 gift certificate to a local scrapbook store! She won most of her money for her flower arrangements.

We had so much fun that we plan to submit items again next year for sure!
