The Annual Fall Festival

Okay, so this last Saturday was our church's Fall Festival. We had a chili cook-off, pie contest and even a papusa contest. All was amazingly wonderful! I ate my weight in pie!
Grandma's pecan pie won! I was so proud! I'm not talented enough to do anything different, but I know my grandma would be so proud. Actually, she would probably say "I've made better." or something silly like that.
Since it was raining and 40 degrees outside, we did the whole festival inside. It was still a HUGE success.
Anyway, there was a professional face painter and all of the kids got a princess face, or a monster face, or a pretty flower around their eye. It was adorable. Well, me being insanely pregnant, the lady really wanted to paint my belly. And this is a testament to the fact that I have a hard time saying "no", I allowed her to give my daughter her first Halloween costume. She was a pumpkin. :)
Now when she started, there was no one around, so I felt it safe to proceed with caution. The next thing I know, half the church is gathering around with cameras and camera phones, as though I were the naked girl in the window of the red light district. I think I had become a car crash and no one could turn their head. Sad, but true.
Anyway, here is the damage....


There are better pictures that I will post later today. Anyway... this was my Saturday.

I loved it. You are a braver woman than I. I think we only have one picture of me pregnant and I didn't know that someone took it. I'm making enchiladas and wishing you were here to hang out.
