First of all...I know, I know! This post has been a long time coming. I've been meaning to share some photos with y'all and tell you all about the fun we had at the Hello Muddah Crop (2011). The popular consensus was that everyone had a ball, ate themselves silly and want to do it again next year! So, watch for announcements for Hello Muddah 2012. But in the meantime, enjoy a few photos from our camping crop!
This is a group shot of almost all of our campers. What an amazing group of ladies!
The REAL Florida. We all loved this state park and (most) of the Rangers!
The park is just so very beautiful. Lots of ladies were inspired to take amazing photos.
There were just TONS and TONS of deer wandering around camp. In fact, Dawn saw a heard of 20 and Julie almost got run over by a group of "bolting" deer.
The morning Nature Walk was popular.
A few of the cabins in our group.
Some clever gals made signs for their cabin doors.
Getting cozy in the bunks! It felt just like summer camp...only in the winter!!
The much dreaded shower. It was all open screen at the top and quite chilly first thing in the morning. Most of us smarties, waited for the afternoon for taking our showers.
This is the room where we cropped at dusk. My favorite part of any crop is just listening to all the chatting and laughter coming from the crop room. And you could really hear the fun from outside!
Miss Barbara, Julie, Deanne & Kim looking cute as ever!
BethAnne's work space filled with goodie bags and snacks.
One of the buildings built in the 1920's by the CCC-this one we used for our Talent Show.
The audience waits for the Talent Show to begin.
Dawn, Tracy & Pam, AKA "The Scrappie Chicks" showed us how to take care of a pesky man in "Goodbye Earl"!
Stacey and I lip synced to the song, You're Timeless To Me, from the Hairspray soundtrack. No! I have not gained more weight...it was TWO pillows! Thankyouverymuch!
"If You're Chilly, Then You Should've Put A Hat On It!" An original song performed by these three cuties!
Stacey and I spent a couple of days just shopping for the groceries! Here I am with the first load we took to the park.
My spice central!
Lydia serves up some Meatball Subs.
Aahhh! That Pumpkin Bisque! Bliss!
It takes a BUNCH of food to feed all these hungry women! Especially when it's mac & cheese! I made Stacey "photo bomb" the shot so I could get perspective on just how big that pan was!
Lunch al' fresco. Bueno!
Tracy samples the super yummy Sticky Banana Bread Pudding.
Lydia and her fire! It sure was a thing of beauty!
Jo warms up herself and a marshmallow by the fire!
The perfect s'more!
A group of volunteers packed the amazing goodie bags.
This is the most amazing goody bag EVER! Each camper created something different, but all done in the same color scheme/theme so that we could all have some handmade embellishments for our albums. There were also lots of godies, like custom made cookies, cocoa kits and very handy hand warmers.
Lance Anderson from Rusty Pickle poses with Miss Barbara after one of his many classes!
This is one of the cool projects that Lance brought to teach. He is such a wonderful teacher!
The cute project that Stacey taught in one of her class.
Stacey taught a VERY full knitting class. Some gals caught on rather quickly...some, like me, were cussing!
PJ's and scarves were haute cotuer at this crop!
Such sweet gals!
The suspension bridge is a popular spot for a photo opportunity.
