They had several categories, and Baby Doll was part of the 0 - 3. She was nervous, but climbed the stairs by herself. She was wearing the little cheetah costume that was originally her Dad's. Every one of our 12 children have had their turns wearing that costume! She looked adorable. I didn't get a pic of her on the podium, but I did manage to get one in the fire truck later at the Safety Fair (check out yesterday's post).
The third category was 8 - 12. Sport climbed on the podium in his football gear since he had a game in about an hour. Not very original, but I thought he looked good. There were lots of kids in both of those categories and I was starting to think that our chances of walking away with a prize or two was pretty slim. Fortunately for us, there were only 4 people in the 13 - 17 category. Fajita was one of them and Crafty was another. We were virtually assured to win a prize! Fajita made a cute witch and Crafty was a pirate with a corset and long boots.
When they started the adult category, we decided it was a good time to hit the businesses who were giving out treats. We found Princess manning the city booth where they gave out t-shirts, candy, and water bottles. Just as we finished the last place looking for treats, they passed the word that they were ready to announce the winners. We rushed back to the podium.

We didn't win in the 8 - 12, but when they announced the winners for the 13 - 17, we cleaned up! Fajita won 2nd place in her witches costume to the tune of $30 and Crafty won the day at first place coming away with $50 in her pocket! My kids are awesome though, they gave the money to me to share with all of the siblings. We are going to go out to lunch next week after Sport's play-off game.
Not bad for a morning of fun!
