Canning was a disaster

My sister Sue and I should have known better, but we attempted to bottle peaches the other day and it didn’t end well. I will admit that I was all gung-ho and innocent and Sue tried to warn me, but I just wouldn’t listen. So instead of just enjoying the peaches in desserts and ice cream we blanched them and peeled them and cut them and made a huge sticky mess of Sue’s kitchen. The result…sixteen unsealed bottles of peaches, which means Nick and I have a lot of peaches to eat within the next week. This will be the last time I will ever attempt to bottle peaches.

Here we are looking all innocent and excited.

Little did we know we still had four hours of canning left.

P.S. We turned the peaches upside down and salvaged all sixteen bottles. Now Nick and I won’t have to make ourselves sick off of peaches!

Proud to be...

I am proud to be the son of a fireman! Today being 9/11 I have memories of that dreadful and crazy day. One thing I remember about that day is being proud to see such amazing people(namely fireman) help in a despereate time. I thought of my Dad and how he has done the same as a fireman. He had done some crazy things and been the one to help those in desperate times. He has done amazing things to help people he doesn't even know. He has put his life on hold and helped others, he has put is life on the line. So since its yet again the anniversary of that terrible I would like to tell my dad thanks, thanks for always being that Hero to me that I have always been proud of. I have always loved telling everyone about you and how your a fireman and so tuff and brave. You have been a great dad, and fireman....and even more hero to me. I know you might not be a fireman anymore, but you will always be a fireman to me, the greatest fireman of all! I thank you again for being that awesome hero that you are.

How we spent our second anniversary...

I forgot my camera, (Duh!) but this was taken with my phone that I later dropped in the lake. It was the perfect way to celebrate two years.
