2009 Tillamook County Fair Entries....

All the jars I entered.
Back row L-R...
Green beans, UNpickled beets, Raspberry freezer jam, Strawberry freezer jam and Peaches.
Front row L-R...
Tuna, Peach/Blueberry freezer jam, Rainier Cherry jam and Cranberry Sauce.

I had Russell hold up the quilts and afghans for me.

This one is upside down. Click to see it larger. It's my personal favorite.

The back of the above quilt.

Nephi's entry.

Michael's entry #1. Pirate Ship

Michael's entry #2 Sunflowers

Michael's entry #3. Robins

A baby quilt I machine stitched and machine quilted. I like to call it "Orange Sherbet."

The granny square afghan I made Michael is also going in the fair.

I also entered a ripple afghan but didn't get a picture. I will get one at the fair.

Donovan also entered a picture he drew entitled "Treebeard."

I think this was in 2004. It was Nephi's first trip to the beach. The boys were all so little! My have they grown.

Meet the Parents...Russell and Candace
It all started for us when Russell left for Cape Town South Africa on a mission. Candace felt inspired to write him - so she did! We wrote for 3 1/2 years. Candace came home from her mission to the Texas Houston East Mission and we dated for 5 months. We married in July 1994 and have been happy ever after!
