After the race, we headed to the church to set up for the Bowles Grove Ward Harvest Festival. As ward enrichment leader (or RS Meeting Chair), I was in charge of it. Thankfully, the 2nd counselor in the ward was SO helpful! She really put the event together. I was so grateful to have all her help and help from my board members. After we decorated, Ben decided today was the day to buy new tires for the 4Runner. We have lots of traveling planned this winter, so we decided it best to keep the tires in good condition. Les Schwab is the best.
We barely made it home to change and back to the church before the party got started. It was a lot of fun. We had a chili cook off with over 20 entries! Chili coming out our ears!! There was face painting and fishing and bean bag and ring toss games. It was a really fun night. Ben won "Most Original" for Kaye's Beans and I had samples of my favorite Wassail recipe. It was a really fun night. Brook bobbed for apples and got one! To celebrate her triumph, she had one painted on her face :) I couldn't get her to hold still for even one picture! Probably the sugar overload :)
Ellie turned into a kitty :)
