The 4th Annual Donuts in the Driveway
It's that time of year again! This is the fourth year of our "Donuts in the Driveway" tradition and each year it gets better and bigger!
The stats from this year:
30 lbs of donut dough = >500 donuts!!
It was a huge success and we love doing it. Of course when I say "we" - it includes the following amazing, stupendous, incredible, fantastic helpers:
The donut rollers, cutters and deliverers: Mom, Dad, Kip, Amy, Addie, Cate and SJ
The donut cookers: Wes, Kip, Dad and Addie
The glaze contributers: Jan and Mom
The babysitters (I didn't see SJ once the entire evening!): Jan and Eldine
The set-up and take-down workers: Wes, Wes, Wes, Wes, my kids, Dad and Kip
We couldn't have pulled it off without this amazing help!!!
This is just a fraction of the dough we rolled out before the party started. My parents (i.e. slaves) were in the kitchen rolling and cutting dough almost the full two hours of the party.
She helped a ton!!!
The scene before the mobscene.
She gets to taste the very first donuts!
The first-comers. It doesn't get really busy until after dark.
The teens and kids found the backyard to be the perfect hangout. And of course the treehouse was big hit.
Maybe someday I will get better pictures.
And today I finally got a few Halloween decorations up!
