Canning Corn

This week has been busy, busy, busy, with canning, canning, canning!
We have got pickles made, peaches canned, apple pies in the freezer, salsa in jars and now the corn is done!
This is the first year since Josh and I got married that I actually have corn to can! Every other year something has happened to keep me from getting corn. So needless to say I was excited for the promise of corn this year! So last Thursday was corn day. the kids and I got started in the morning, I picked it and Andy and Kayla put it into baskets. Kerri, dear sweet Kerri came over and helped us husk it. Then after a quick lunch break we got busy cutting it off the ears. After 1 hour we were done, and by the end of the day I had enough corn in the freezer for 27 meals!
Harvest is such a wonderful time of year, enjoying all the blessings that God has given us.
Thank you Kerri for your help! With out you I'd probably still be working at it!

I Love this little Girl!!

Makayla REALLY likes picking dandeloin seed thingys.
She was on her way to see Daddy out in the shop today but she never made it there. :)
And the best part of all, after she had her hand full she gave them to me!
Yup, I love her!

Sunshine + Swimming

This week the weather has warmed up again, which has been super nice after we were having some cooler, what seemed like early Fall weather. We were not ready for that yet so the sunshine has been wonderful!
This was the first time I pulled out the pool this Summer, the kids loved it, it didn't take them long to empty most of the water, into their toys and by watering my flowers. :) But in the end they did jump in (once there was 2 inches of water left) :)

When I told Josh yesterday he said, that's all? It seems like Brendan has been has been part of our family forever. He brings us a lot of joy and we feel very blessed to be his parents!
Brendan is growing up so fast! He is very attentive and loves to watch Andrew and Makayla playing. He enjoys to exersaucer and is favorite thing to do is to talk to you, even if he is crying, if you take the time to talk to him he will cheer right up.
