This week has been full of preparation for the fall party we held at our house last night. With a total of 161 people attending, it was quite a bit of work but very much worth it! On Friday, we had a bunch of girls over and they helped us making 19 pies and 4 batches of pumpkin bars. All the pies and most of the bars were gone by the time everyone left last night. :) Thank you, thank you girls!
Here are just a few pictures taken over the last few days.

Wooohooo! 2 down, 17 more to go! Katie showing off 2 dutch apple pies. ;) Gotcha Katie!
9 pumpkin pies in the oven
The hog for the hog roast! We burned all the hair off with a big torch.

Hayride! We took two wagon hooked up together.
There was a beautiful sunset.
Several of us sitting around the fire.
So now you have a little idea of our weekend. Again, thank you to all those who attended! It is wonderful to know each one of you, you are all a blessing to our family.
Just for a little update on my livestock judging, I'm going to be judging some steers tonight and giving some reasons there. We will be leaving in just a little over a week. Oh, and right now, I'm listening to several sets of reasons from college livestock judging students. They are really good, and help me pick up more terms, etc.
Well, have a great rest of the weekend! God bless!
