This past weekend our town held a Chili Cook-off complete with craft vendors, farmer's market, 13 different chilis to sample, and a pumpkin decorating contest. Years ago, at this same event, we had entered a pumpkin and won second place in the family division. But then, sadly, the chili cook-off lost a lot of it's volunteers and the once highly anticipated event was no more.
Until this year!
When I heard this festive event was back on, I knew it was time for the Dominique's to pick some pumpkins, bust out the paints, put our heads together, and conquer the pumpkin decorating contest.
And that we did:
Jacob created the batman pumpkin, the girly pink one is Bree's, and we worked together as a family on the other two. All our hard worked paid off as we collected a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place trophies. However, we do not know which pumpkin won what as we were not there for judging and everything was just grouped together when it was time to pick them up. But that's okay.
We're all winners in this house!
