Where to Start?

Actually I have had lots going on in the past couple of weeks.

I will start with a small family celebration.  Last week my nephew visited from Philadelphia so my brother-in-law had a barbeque. This side of the family has not gotten together for a while so it was nice to catch up on all the gossip.

I love watching the little ones interact.  Our family is growing and I couldn’t be happier!

Monday, Kate and Lauren came over to can tomatoes.  We got 29 quarts and 6 pints of tomatoes.  Is it worth it?  I like to believe that along with having tomatoes all winter but we also created some good memories.  We also reminisced about my mother-in-law who taught me how to can. Now Katie is the expert, keeping us up to date on newer methods.


Finally, I am in the middle of making cookies.  300 to be exact!  Shophop at Mission Rose starts next week and Kate and I are doing pineapples. (I do cookies-she decorates)


Just three more batches to go!
