Frost, Festival and Good Times

Good morning, we were visited by Jack Frost last night.  I woke to our first frost of the season.

You remember my writing, about two blogs ago, of how nice it was to be back at church after two weeks of being out?  Well I got to spend some more time with my church family in the middle of the week.  I’m soaking it all in because I know in a week or two, there will be another conversion at work and I will most likely be working long hours again.

Anyway, we had a fall festival at church this week.  We started out with fish fry.  The menu was fish, hush-puppies, fries, coleslaw, baked beans and desert. I zoned in on some banana pudding and couldn’t pass it up.  🙂

some of the men took care of the cooking

There were games for the kids; musical chairs, cup games, target games, goal games…  I tried to get pics of everything, but some didn’t turn out and I think I missed some games too.

 We had a cake wall for all the ages.  A Vulcan dj’d the cake walk.

We had a time of comedy, music and testimony.

We recognized all the costumes.

The evening was wrapped up with a pumpkins seed spitting contest.  Yes, you read it right, a Pumpkin Seed Spitting contest.  We had one for the kids.

And one for the teenagers and adults.

This is a very competitive group and we had to have a couple of tie breakers.

Good food, good friends and good times sharing the love of God.  That’s what it is all about.

Have a great day!

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
