Show And Tell Friday~Fair Winnings!

For the first time ever, I entered some items into our county fair, as well as my children. Today, I want to show you what we entered, and what we won with our entries!

First off, before I show you the pictures, I want to say that this was *alot* of fun. If you have an opportunity to do this in your state, or county, take advantage of it. It boosted Sweeties self-confidence, and also allowed me tie some heart strings with her as I taught her some new skills.

OK! First thing we did was enter an egg decorating contest. All of the kids were allowed to participate in this. And I think everyone "won" something.
This is Tiny Boy's egg. It placed third, and won a $2 cash awardBean's egg. It also placed third with a $2 cash award
Sweetie's egg. Also third place, with a $2 award. We saw some really unique egg decorations, and got some great ideas for next year! :)

Next, Sweetie and I entered some baking classes
This is the Whole Wheat Bread I bake on a regular basis. It placed First with a $5 award in it's category I guess. I am not sure how the placing system works
Sweetie won 2nd place and $3 for the Cream Cheese Cookies she made!

Then Sweetie entered some "fine art". It was a water color painting of the sun done in dots all over the place.
It placed 3rd, with a $2 award!

Sweetie and I entered some sewing. I entered the outfit I made to sell on ebay.
It placed 1st, with a $5 reward
Sweetie entered a tote bag she had made.
It placed 1st, as well as "BEST IN CLASS"!!!! The 1st place was $5, and the "best in class" was $10, for a total of $15! I was sooooo excited for Sweetie! I am always tell her she is going to be a better sewer than me, and this really boosted her confidence! I am so proud of her!!!
We even had some time for a few fun rides, and fabulous fair food! :)

To see what others are Showing and Telling, Visit Kelli at There's No Place Like Home. Thanks for looking! :)

Please find that there is a Sane Voice in Congress! And we need to back him up.
