Fair update...

I got a phone call from someone we know telling me I should go to the fair tonight to see how we did. It's still free on Tuesday evening and most of the judging is finished. So I grabbed Russell and we went on a short "date" to the fair. This is what we found!

Nephi got a 1st place ribbon!
Michael got a 3rd place ribbon...

And a 1st place ribbon....

This is the picture Donovan did. He didn't get anything that we know of. There are special awards to still be handed out. He is hoping...

My strawberry freezer jam got a 1st place ribbon....

so did my raspberry freezer jam....

and my UNpickled beets got a 1st place ribbon as well....

My cranberry sauce received a 3rd place ribbon. I was very excited! I didn't think I would get so many awards.
The only place I didn't see was Textiles. The judges were still working in there. I will have to be patient and wait until Thursday when I do a shift at the fair!

Way to go Candace! I'm impressed! I only entered one thing: my corn bread! My family all thinks it's a winner---but the judges didn't think so! Oh well! I'm proud of you for all your hard work and ambition! I'm also impressed with your boys! That's awesome to see so many ribbons on their art work! You guys ROCK!

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!
