Canning Adventures....

My canning Adventures lately....
Well this year....I got a wild hair and decided to enter somethings in the fair. I did this totally thinking I would place in anything. Since most of my canning is experimental. But suprisingly everything that I entered place.
1. Dill pickles- 1st place
2. Bread and Butter zucchini spears- 1st pl.
3. Applesauce-2nd pl.
4.Whole Wheat Bread-3rd pl.
5. Cinnamon Rolls- 2nd pl.
6. Pumpkin Bread- Honorable mention
So Now....
I'm addicted and we have now canned
and Marinara Sauce!!!

Halloween 2011

Grant was my Hula girl...complete with a homemade coconut bra!
Mathew was an escaped prison inmate!
Caroline was a fairy princess.
Anna was a witch!
Ella wanted to go as Mrs. Claus!
All the kids had a great time. I was tired after it all was done! Over Halloween, Forrest had pneumonia so he was confined to the house for the duration of the weekend. I would hate to have to be a single parent all the time!!! One weekend was enough for me!
Everyone had a fabulous time and can't wait for next year!

Anna turns 6!

Anna's Cake for course made by daddy!
Her big present for the year was her bike!
She also got a new shirt, neckless with "A" on it and some new Polly Pockets!
Happy Birthday my Anna banana! WE love you so and are so thankful you are in our family.
