Yesterday the kids and I conquered blueberry Jam. Blueberries were on a fabulous sale at the grocery store ($4.99 for 2lbs)so we had to snag some up for Jam and to freeze (does anyone else love to eat frozen blueberries? YUM!). It started out just Hailey and I on the first batch. She is a great helper because she understands the concepts of patience, things are HOT and things need to be measured. Shortly after we started, Ethan joined the party followed by Ady. There were no major tragedies except for Ethan pouring 6 cups of sugar on the dirty floor instead of in the pan.. it was a close miss. He was fervently sorry about it and insisted on remeasuring all of the sugar himself to make up for it. I am not quite sure how much under or over 6cups we were! It was really a lot of fun and everyone was stoked to get to try our jam as soon as it cooled down. Luckily, all of my jars sealed. The most memorable part of the afternoon was when Ady fell asleep amid all of the commotion on Hailey's lap without even making a peep. She is sure a sweet little baby!
We survived Halloween!!.....Barely!!
