So...fun things I am doing for the party. I wanted an EASY target game for my Wild West theme for this year. So I bought two airbazooca guns from Amazon.com. I spent last weekend shooting lightweight things, and finally decided to use plastic drink cups. You get five blasts to knock off five cups from a table. It's fun.
I went through a faze of thinking that I am too old to dress up for these parties. Then I decided, "Naw." So the above is my newest apron for the Chili Cook-Off.
Not everyone drinks alcohol with their chili. We provide water and punch for the others.
The huge drink dispenser at work is GLASS and a bear to wash. I saw this galvanized one online and tracked it down after a couple of hours--on Ebay.com. It holds a ton of liquid, but better yet, when the liquid gets below the spigot, I can provide a ladel to get the punch down at the bottom. YIPPEE!!!
Landscaped with two of the voting sheets. The guests were given six voting dots each. They put one in a box on six chilies they liked. I have included to two halves of the dairy barn in case you ever need one.
Below are the pattern pieces for the cardboard tipping cows. Glue the front to a piece of cardboard "pizza box" thickness. Cut out. Glue the reverse cow to the other side. Repeat process for legs. Cut 1 1/2" into cow's lower line to slide the legs into. Repeat for cow legs.
