Mmmmm. . . . cake!

I made personal cakes for the kids to decorate.  I used some small glass pyrex bowls.  I tried to find some small cake pans at the store, but the bowls were the only thing that I could find in the size that I was looking for.  They worked great!

The kids had a lot of fun!  They turned out
 really cute and yummy looking.

                                                    Great job!

I have been converted to canning.  So far this summer I have canned tomatoes, chillies, pickles, and now I am working on apples.  These beauties are apple pie filling.  I only did one batch which made 7qt jars, but I will be doing more tomorrow.

       As you can see I still have a ton of apples left.  I think that I might dehydrate some as well.  I haven't decided yet.  I might do spiced apples or some applesauce.  We will see.

Camping Part 2

We went camping again this last weekend and I forgot to take my camera with me.  Eva was sick and kept getting a fever.  She was pretty cranky and would only go to Kallee (her cuz.) or myself.  I think that she did have a lot of fun playing with Kallee.  Everyone seemed to have a fun time.  I am glad to be back to sleep a bit better.  Eva did not sleep very well and kept stealing James' cot.  I don't think that he slept very well either.
