I finally followed my sister's example and got my peaches canned. Although I only did a quarter of what she did, it will have to do cause I gave all my empty jars back to my mom. I canned some salsa and tomatoes earlier on in the season, but it's peaches that I love. I don't know why I kept putting it off. It was like that homework assignment you just really didn't want to do, and it felt so good to finally get it done. I also just had to add a couple of pictures of the kiddos as well. Daylen took Kate's bow off of her head and wanted to wear it himself. Brad wasn't so happy about that one.

randomness about me...

So I was tagged by my neighbor and friend, Ashley, to share 6 random things about myself...

1. I love strawberry flavoring, but I reall don't care for real strawberries. I picked the famous Klicker strawberries for 3 summers at home and only ate 1 strawberry. Mostly just to say that I ate one.

2. Brad has had to learn that my definition of "doing the dishes" means doing the dishes, putting all leftover food away, wiping down all countertops, stovetop, high chair, and dining table. Pretty much leaving the kitchen spotless.

3. My favorite TV show is Bones...with The Office coming in close 2nd.

4. I come from a family of car washing nuts, thanks to my dad. It wasn't uncommon for my dad to drag my sisters and I out in below freezing weather including Christmas and New Years Day to wash the cars. You know it's too cold to wash a car when you have to drive it into the garage to thaw before drying it. My car must be washed in a certain order, using specific sponges for each part of the car, followed by a precise drying procedure.

5. I REALLY don't like to iron.

6. My left ear became plugged after swimming while we were in Washington a few weeks ago. Since then Kate has been GREAT about sleeping through the night. :)
