The last few months we've been SOMEWHERE every weekend, which makes for hard catch up during the week...with housework, with school work, with weight management, with EVERYTHING! But this weekend, we're home, and no major plans! Just canning, canning canning! Which has turned out to be a really fun family event! Jaden and Boston did over 40 apples each with the slicer/peeler/corer, Pearce has helped turn the food processer on and off, and Vivian helps taste test. Jase and I do the cooking, and cleaning. So far we're down 6 containers of peach freezer jam, 10 bottles of regular peach jam, 15 bottles of applesauce, and a few bottles of apple butter. We'll finish up more apple butter and apple pie filling tomorrow, then pear stuff on Tuesday! I really want to stay home every weekend now. Needless to say, the house is trashed form the 2 littles wondering, and the kitchen is sticky sticky from floor to ceiling, but we've had a great day, and no major drama! Got Pandora blasting Walt Disney tunes, the house smells like apples and cinnamon, and a few pantry shelves slowly filling up! Best day ever!!!!
