Corn Toss Championship Part II

Bonjour from Campagne Maison

It was a long hot day, the competition was fierce, but in the end we had a happy winner! Chris won 1st place and is shown here with the official, much coveted, Corn Toss trophy.

I am sure that we will all agree that there are lots of things that can be done with a cob of corn. But, whose brilliant mind was it to shellac it, drill a hole in it, screw it on a fancy cherry wood base, attach a gold name plaque for engraving, and declare it a TROPHY and make lots of $$$$ with it ?? I think that would fall under the "foolish things confounding the wise" category...LOL

Brandon was second place winner

Moving right along....

In an attempt to make sure that everyone gets their "minute of fame" I am trying to include pictures of all who attended our second annual 4th of July Family Reunion. As before, I will put a name to a face and what nut they are on our family tree.

This is my husband Sammy. Our children are Sam II and Jeremey. Kaleb and Haiven are our grandchildren.

This is my sister Jenny and moi. I don't recall what we were talking about but I sure was in deep concentration!

This is my son, Jeremey, Kaleb's father, Ian, and my other son, Sam II, who is Haiven's father. My children and grandchildren live in Arkansas.

This is my niece, Michelle with Jace. She is Rick's daughter and Jace's mother. She is also Mya's mother. (We are so excited for them. They are closing on their first home tomorrow! I can't wait to see pictures. They live in Michigan.)

This is my niece Leslie. She is the daughter of Jenny, mother to Chad and Michelle B, mother-in-law to Jenni, grandmother to Jayci, Boston, Madison, and Grayson. They live in Utah.

This is Michelle B. She is the granddaughter to Jenny, daughter of Leslie, sister to Chad, mother to Boston, Madison, and Grayson.

This is Chad and Jayci. He is Jenny's grandson, Leslie's son, Jenni's husband and Jayci's dad.

This is Jenni. She is married to Chad and is the mother of Jayci. The family tree continues on, as she is expecting their second child November 15th. You can read Jenni's blog at:

Thanks for stopping by the farmhouse for a visit today. We love having company.

Au revoir,
