Apple Pie Contest: The Results Post

{Don't forget to enter the Thanksgiving Giveaway. You don't want to miss out. Click HERE to enter.}

As I was saying yesterday...

Belle woke up very excited about entering her pie in the 2nd Grade Apple Pie Baking Contest. In fact, I only had to tell her to get out of bed once.... as opposed to four or five times on most days, along with lots of poking and prodding.

When we arrived at the school, I was shocked to see over thirty pies waiting for judging. I was expecting maybe ten. I was wrong. Here's a shot of Belle and her adorable little friends while they waited for the contest to begin.

The pies were kept "anonymous" for judging. There we are. Y13.

I felt so sorry for the distinguished panel of judges. Can you IMAGINE sampling over thirty pies, some more than once? And all at 8 in the morning? Ugh. Makes me nauseous just thinking about it.

But when all was said and done, Belle Slaughter took home the SECOND PLACE PRIZE! And that little girl was over the moon excited. She is still talking about it, and I think it has even made her excited about baking in the future. She keeps asking what we can do together next. Here she is getting her prizes.

Yes, I spent an entire Sunday afternoon helping her bake those pies. But this smile made it all worth it, even the Sunday nap I missed.

She even made the Shiloh blog. Click here to see. (It's totally irrelevant that her daddy does that blog, right? I mean, there is absolutely no favoritism there. That's just crazy talk.)

So if you see my girl, congratulate her for a job well done. I promise, you'll see that smile.

Well, my favorite pix is of Belle and her gorgeous smile, and then next is the pix of the judges! James, Ms. Jane, and Ben...that is soooo funny! I bet none of them ask for apple pie for Thanksgiving dessert.
