We had our Ward Trunk or Treat and Annual Chili Cook-Off last night!
Alayna was a Feline Fairy, Eli was Batman, and Walker was Spiderman! LOL! I used to go all out and buy the kids the expensive costumes. But the past few years we’ve been using our imaginations a bit. We typically hit up the .99 Store and come up with something from whatever they’ve got. I think they did great! 😀
Close up of Batman..lol!!
So this year these two guys decided to enter the Ward’s Chili Cook-Off. They didn’t however really run it by their Moms…LOL! Derek came over the day before and I gave the boys 3 recipes to choose from. They picked a Spicy, Smokey, Sweet Chili. I supervised so there weren’t any fingers in the chili and the measurements were accurate but, they pretty much did it themselves. 😛
The judges tasted all of the entries. I believe there were 14 contestants. And wouldn’t you know it….these two ended up winning 1st Place!!!!!!! I couldn’t believe it when I found out! I was SO PROUD of them!!!! They were SO stoked! They couldn’t believe it either!!! Hahaha! This is them posing with their prizes and the Hulk is bulking up in the background on their winning recipe!!! LOL!!!
Last night was Campo’s Homecoming game and so Walker did’t stay with us long. He went with his buddies to watch the game. But I wanted to get a better pic of his costume all lit up. 😛
It was a fun night! We still are over the moon about the boys victory! 😀
