The kiddies did good with their creations enetered into the competitions at the state fair::
Josh worked hard at creating his perfect Lego house:
and came third!
Maddy made a wonderful ginger cake with rhubarb crumble on top - a recipe she has been practicing over the summer.
and she has recieved a particpants ribbon, which I believe is kind of a 'runners up' ribbon, as it seems only a select few of the cakes not placed in the top three are displayed. I think its the prettiest ribbon I have seen too.
This Mama also entered a quilt, the first time I have entered anything made by me into a competition and...
it places first in the 'Applique Quilts' division!!
We are headed to the fair tomorrow to see it all for ourselves - these photos were sent to me by my friend yesterday.
We have decided not to tell the kiddies about their ribbons and will let them work it out for themselves tomorrow...fun!
