Fall Festival

We went as the "Little Red Riding Hood Gang" to our church fall festival. We had a chili cook off, carnival games, and pie eating contest. It was pretty fun.
This is our friends' dog, Lilly. I thought she looked more like a wolf than our dog, Charlie. Carson was the woods man. Madi was Little Red. I was Granny.

PIE!! ~~ No hands!

I got second place by about one bite. (or should I say slurp)

The secret of a pie eating contest is to get as much on your face so you don't have to eat as much.
