He is starting to say cheese when you pull out the camera!

Wearin Grandmas glasses :)!
He is getting too cute! I just love all the time that we get to spend together. He is the best little boy in the world and I just love him to death. Cant wait for him to be a big brother. It sure is going to be fun :)! I am one lucky MOMMY!

FiNaLlY DoNe!

I can officially say that I am done canning for this year. I usually love canning, but this year it hasn't been all that fun. Although I cant imagine why. I am just glad to see that our food storage is stocked back up for another year. This will be my last post on canning. But I had just a few more projects to finish up the 2010 canning season.  

My Carrots were my first project. I was glad to get these done, but I never seem to plant enough. So next year I am going to plant three times as many so that I can get more for food storage. Although Logan and I are the only ones that like them, I just didn't get enough, because I can eat a whole pint by myself and so can Logan.

My second project was my tomatoes. There is always plenty to do. I was going to do pizza sauce and whole tomatoes, but by the time they all ripened I was only up for canning whole tomatoes. So I will have to use some of Lisa's pizza sauce.

I got 9 pints of yummy carrots!

I got 18 quarts of tomatoes!

All our hard work stored in our basement :)!

We hit the case lot sale at Ridleys to finish off our food storage.

A few case of water to add to our fifty gallon barrel. It sure isn't alot of water, but I am still working on it.

It was a good canning season in spite of all the worries after a horrible growing season. It sure was a long one, but it is always good to see the end product and to see just how much my hard work pays off. I am just glad that we have food that will feed our family. It will always be a work in progress, because there is always more that I want to add, but it sure is a start. So until next year, I am FINALLY DONE!!!!!!!!!!!

Every time someone has a baby my Grandma Jaynes hand quilts 4-Leaf Clover blankets for them. She draws a pattern on them and then hand stitches it. To me they are a priceless gift. I love seeing what she will make and they are always so perfect. My mom kept mine that my Grandma made for me when I was born and it is pretty worn out. The first pics are of Logans blanket, which is already pretty worn out. He takes it everywhere. I will eventually put it away so that he can have it when he is grown. And just today she gave me the one she made for Ashlee and I love it. We sure Love You (Great) Grandma Jaynes!



The Fight is On

Just thought this was cute. Matt and Logan fighting to their own Star Wars music. He sure loves time with DADDY.
