Fall Frenzy

Last Friday night {yes...I am almost a week behind}, we attended a Fall Frenzy at Banks' school. I went at lunch to help get the food ready. I assisted in frying 280 chicken breast for "Chick-Fil-A" sandwiches! After school, we headed out for an evening of fun!

He had a ball playing games with all his new classmates...

Banks and Ian waiting in line at the dunking booth. They both got close a couple of times but neither one dunked a teacher {probably a good thing since report cards come out next Friday}. B&Ian Banks playing the Candyland candy walk... Candy Walk I think he ended up winning a Kit Kat and a bag of Peanut M&Ms.

Mary Reese loved the Toy Walk {like a Cake Walk but you won toys instead}... Toy Walk She played it at least 10 times in a row before she finally won! Did you notice her blue hair? She paid a ticket to have her hair sprayed! She also won us a new family pet...a goldfish named Flower Diamond Cupcake {and amazingly the fish is still alive}!

She worked up an appetite winning all those prizes... Cotton Candy What's a festival without cotton candy? They also had a Silent and Live Auction. Banks' class was in charge of a tailgating basket for each of the high school teams in town. I made baskets of football and megaphone cookies. DHS/AHS Tailgating Basket Their class basket turned out super cute! We ended up coming home with an Alabama themed one and a sports ball themed one. On our way out the door, Mary Reese exclaimed "This fall festival was WAY better than last years!" I think she had just as much fun as Banks!
