As you may or not be aware, our 4H is having their big annual fair this weekend, Collene and Tanner are competing in the dog show on Sat. morning but she has placed 8 other different entries in for competition to be judged. 1 for her records she keeps throughout the year, and 3 arts and crafts type entries which were #1 a wooden plaque that she hand stippled our last name onto and then stained the name in a dark walnut stain and then stained over the whole thing with a shiny oak stain so it looks like burnt wood she made a couple of months ago. #2 a poster she did on the Golden Retriever and #3 A machine quilted pillow. Then she entered 4 food items. The judging was going on tonite while we were practicing the dogs, so me and another parent went in to the exhibits to see if we could peek at how she did, she doesn't even know this yet but she got a First Place blue ribbon on the wooden plaque, and a First Place blue ribbon on her poster and a Second Place red ribbon on her pillow. The food items hadn't been judged yet by the time we left so I don't know about those yet. All this and then we'll have to see where she and Tanner place on Saturday, every win she gets is cumulated at the end for one of those big Rosette style ribbons which she wants so badly! I had to just share all this with someone cause I dont' want to spoil her surprise! She will be thrilled! I am not allowing her on the computer until Sunday so by the time she comes back to the boards she will have already found out so I can spill the beans here lol.

MORE RESULTS! Collene managed a Second Place red ribbon for the soft biscotti cookies, and then a First Place blue ribbon for each of her Pumpkin Bread, Peppermint Bark, and Peanutbutter Fudge! Then she went to the dog show this morning, and she finished 3rd out of 7 in Obedience and the out of the same number, she got 1ST Place!!!!!!!! WAAHHOOOO!!! This is her first-Fist Place win and she is on cloud nine, everyone was applauding her and the local newspaper photographer was there and he went over and interviewed her and took pictures of her and Tanner with the ribbon, what a great moment in her life thus far, I'm so proud of her. Tomorrow morning at 9 they are having a big awards ceremony that we need to go to, they will be giving out trophies and rosettes and such so we don't know if she clinched a rosette for herself quite yet but should find out tomorrow hopefully.
