Harvest Party

A week ago Friday, our church had our annual Harvest Party. We were once again on a farm and we had a great time! Abby took her first pony/horse ride. The horse's name was... Abby!

We also had an Apple Bobbing "contest." Mostly, it was just the kids having fun getting wet! We ended up with a lot of apples with one or two bites out of them.

Here is my super dirty girl! This picture really doesn't do justice to the amount of dirt that had accumulated on her person. I can say with a fair amount of certainty that this was the dirtiest Abby had ever been in her life! Can you see the streaks on her face?

Oh, yeah. The chili was great!

Abby in the scarecrow cut-out. A cuter scarecrow I've never seen!

Then it was time for a hayride! Abby was ready!

She was down in the hay hole! :)

After the hayride, we had a bonfire and roasted marshmallows.

When we got home that night, I thought I would give Abby a quick "wipey" bath and send her to bed. But, between all the bug spray and dust and dirt and hay... I took her shoes off and her socks were brown (previously white) and her feet were filthy! So into the bathtub she went for the world's fastest bath.

She went to bed clean and happy!

You got some great pictures! I sure missed my camera that night!
I agree Abby was pretty filthy but I truely think ALL the kids were! When Kedric took his shoes off I seen a pile of dirt come out of them! I showered everyone quickly and then off to bed while I stayed up and cleaned up all the trails! It was all worth it though! I think it was the best one yet! I really enjoyed the hay ride and fire works, though I loved the hot toasty marshmallows, but then the chilli was so yummy, well hey we all had too much fun! Love Your recap of it!
