In his first ever year of entering something in the fair, Shav came away a winner!!
David got a third-place ribbon, too...
And Tobin, with his heart-shaped maple fudge...
The other non-winner was Josiah who made forgotten cookies, one of my favorite treats. Ironically, on Monday evening, when Jeff sampled each of the four desserts the boys made to enter in the fair, he, not knowing which boy made which dessert, awarded first place to the forgotten cookies and last place to the maple fudge! If I had uttered my judgement, which I didn't, I would have given the forgotten cookies second place.
I guess it just goes to show that the judges don't know what they're doing. ;-)
I mean, I guess it just goes to show that Jeff and I don't know what we're doing! :)
No, really, I mean that I guess it just goes to show that there is a certain amount of subjectivity in the judgment of baked goods!!! :)
Regardless of the ribbons or lack thereof, I am SO PROUD of my boys for not only doing the work of making the treats, but more importantly, keeping great attitudes no matter what the outcome of the competition.
In my book, they're all winners through and through! :)
