Fall Fest!

Hey Everyone!
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.

Annie and Jill rolling out pie crusts.
Wooohooo!  2 down, 17 more to go!  Katie showing off 2 dutch apple pies. ;)  Gotcha Katie!

Peach pie

 9 pumpkin pies in the oven
  The hog for the hog roast!  We burned all the hair off with a big torch.

 On the roaster!

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!

Katie and I just got back at 8:30 tonight from Columbus, OH after attending and competing in Horse Bowl at the All American Quarter Horse Congress. There were 25 teams there this year. Unfortunately, they did not make top ten...but Katie may still be able to receive a finalist coat...we will see.

We had an incredible time at the party, spending time with your family, neighbors, and long time friends. I belive you all are truly blessed with so many great friends.

Thanks again for inviting us!
