Fun at the Fall Festival!

Last weekend our church held a Fall Festival with fun events for the whole family!

For starters, there was a Fall Dessert contest!  Tiffany entered an apple pie and a pumpkin pie, made just the way her expert instructor (my mom!) taught her!  :)





Here is the apple pie right after it emerged from the oven!  Is your mouth watering??  :)



And here is the pumpkin pie adorned with whipped cream and waiting to be judged.


The first recipe I tried didn't end up looking like much of a contestant, so I entered this Chocolate Pumpkin Cake with Caramel Glaze instead.



If you think Tiffany's apple pie looked like a winner, you were right!  :)  She won First Place, much to her delight!!



There was also a costume contest.  My friend, Melissa, won first place dressed as a scarecrow!  Isn't she perfectly adorable??




And my son, Joe, a.k.a. Prince Caspian, won second place!


There were lots of cute costumes . . .











This is our pastor and his wife -- Captain John Smith and Pocahontas!  Aren't they cute???



There was also a hayride, which proved to be thrilling and chilling!  ;)



Our kids dressed up as the main characters from the Chronicles of Narnia.  If there had been a group prize, I'm sure they would have won it!  They were perfect!!!  Take a look and see for yourself!

Here we have the Pevensies: Susan, Edmund, Peter and Lucy on the back row, and the younger Edmund and Lucy on the front row.



The Pevensies with Prince Caspian!




The "classic pose!"


For Narnia!!



The two "Lucies" . . . aren't they pretty??



This picture of my little "Lucy" melts my heart!  :)



Did your family participate in any type of fall festival, harvest celebration or Reformation Day Fair??

I have to admit, I am really not much of a pie eater anymore, but those pies looked great! I am thrilled for Tiffany taking first place! It is nice to be rewarded for a job well done.

You should have shown us the "flop" as well as your masterpiece! You may not have won, but your cake looked delicious - plus, anything with caramel has my vote! :)

What a fun fellowship! Everyone looked so cute. What a great idea to have a fall festival, with food, fun, games, hayrides.......makes for good memories!
