The Results are In

Despite the incredible amount of rain, the parade went on as planned at the Fall Fair and the folks lined the streets to watch it. Our children had a blast picking up soggy candy off the street and then begging me to eat all of it. (not before they share the sour candies with me though. We'll call it a service tax.)

Then off to the exhibitors hall:

28 items entered. 5 children entering their wares.

23 ribbons received.

First place red ribbons: 4

Second place blue ribbons: 4

Third place white ribbons: 6

Thanks for coming out burgandy ribbons: 9

Apparently the other 5 items didn't even need to bother showing up as they ended up ribbonless...

The kids had a hoot, and I am proud of them. Next year I may even try and enter some muffins...that's about all I got!
