Chili Cook Off

Well after much hard work we got in the money. Each year it seems that we put the effort out but never get any of the reward. This year we placed third overall. $35.00 to Jim's Razorback WooHoo!!! We plan on using it at one of our group times. I am sure it had mostly to do with our theme. I was actually pretty proud. Amanda did a great job of getting it all together and making the skit.

Our theme was Tool Time. Yes that is a video playing above the set. We are such high-tech people.

Characters:
Heidi - Kendra
Wilson - Brian
Tim -Tim
Al - Calvin

Here is a picture of our whole connection group

The Cooks made the chili and I made the cookie that we entered. I have to say I don't think my cookie got us very far. Most of us stayed after church Sunday morning and put the site together. Calvin and Timmy had went up on Saturday and actually made the set we just did the paper work on Sunday. It took us all afternoon. Brian was gracious enough to take our kids home with him while we stayed and worked. I don't know how much work I really did. Bending over is a challenge. We were all so tired by the time we got home that evening. Even if we didn't get first place we did have a really cool set.

Brian took all the kids??? Really?!?!?!? What kind of bribing did you have to do to get him to take all the kids with him??? :) Just kidding!!! I know he's come a long way in that department, especially since they are all older.

Y'all are cute! I love the Wilson and all. So fun. I wish somebody had pictures of all the other groups!
