PeAcHEs, pEaChEs, & mOre PeaCHeS

so as I mentioned in the previous blog, I have been a busy little bee bottling peaches. I spent pretty much all day Saturday working away at my messy project. My mom came over Friday night to show me how to do it, then came over Saturday morning with my sis Chelsee to bring me more jars, and helped a little more. My sis Jamilee stopped bylater and helped a bit before heading off to get Ledger. I managed to bottle 42 quarts of peaches, but with 2 jars breaking (oh that makes me sooo mad) I ended up with a grand total of 40 quarts! Can you believe it?! my first time doing this and I done that many. I think I have turned into quite the little betty crocker, if I do say so myself!! :) of course at the time, I didnt even think to take pics, maybe it was because I had no time to think of that! so I took a couple pics of my great accomplishment afterwards! next up....freezer jam (which I already know how to do, so it won't be too tough)

Geez girl! Look at you go! I've lost my jars in one of our moving adventures and haven't been motivated enough to restock everything. Congrats! Those will taste delish in the middle of winter! (oooo especially on cobbler! mmmm! I'm hungry)

Hey send me your mailing address in an email or something and I would be more than happy to send you some clippies! I have them coming out my ears, but everytime I see cute ribbon or flowers I make more! Bryn would look very cute wearing my designs!!!

Sorry honey but your not paying me for them! Maybe when I turn big and I'm on QVC, then we can talk. jkjk. I have been making them just to give them out so its no big deal. Expect my pkg in the mail.....
