Ambry is sitting in her "fort" she made by tipping the rocking chair over and hanging some towels on when she says this to me.
Ambry--"Mom, can I have some lonely time? And you say, 'What is lonely time?'"
Me--"All right. What is lonely time, Ambry?"
Ambry--"It is when you get to be all alone. So can I be all alone, Mom? You are really starting to bug me."
Thanks, Ambry. Thanks a lot. So Piper and I are going to go play and give Ambry some lonely time.

5 Minutes for Mom is giving away a Dyson...a PINK Dyson! So what if the odds of winning it are terrible? I am still entering the drawing. I can't resist. So what if I am comment #1782? I still have a chance of winning...although it is a very small
chance. So head over here
if you would also like a very small chance of winning.

Last night I got all of my pears done and canned. Yeah! Thanks to Esther stopping by and helping me out, I was only up to 1:00 last night. If she hadn't stopped by, I would probably have been up till at least 2:00. I got 28 jars done and all but one of them sealed. I will be happy if I don't have to ever peel another pear again! I seriously thought that my nose hairs had been singed with the smell of pears. I had to take a shower because I smelled like one giant sticky pear and also felt like one. While I was takinga shower I could still smell the pears. It was like they had attached their smell to me...permanently. Today is a little better, although it doesn't make me as happy as I had hoped when I looked at my jars of pears this morning. I think there should be more...lots and lots more! Oh well. At least we'll have some good fruit to eat this winter.
This past Saturday, Esther and I took the kids raspberry picking. I was really surprised that Ambry did as good as she did. She actually managed to pick quite a few. At least she enjoyed raspberry picking more than blueberry picking. We went for about an hour and picked about 5 pounds. I went back by myself later that afternoon and picked another 4 pounds. I froze two bags (1/2 gallon bags) of them and made jam out of the rest. Here are a couple pics of us picking raspberries.
Have a good Wednesday!

Man, oh man, have I been neglecting the blog, or what?!? Please don't answer that. I know I have been terrible. Anyway, there just hasn't been a whole lot of anything going on. Absolutely nothing too terribly exciting. I canned a bunch of my banana peppers. I got chased by a dog while running. I fell while I was running (and I thought that only happened as you got older. :) See? Nothing too terribly exciting. I did see this
on Esther's blog and thought it was very cute. I actually don't have an apron at all. So how much fun would it be to have one. I'm never too sure what to do with one but since I am not always the neatest or cleanest of bakers, I am sure it would come in handy.
Since I have no other exciting or interesting enough news, I'll let you all know that I am alive and still kickin'. I just don't have anything going on right now. Actually, I am going to go and buy a bunch of pears to can (which will be my first time ever canning those) so I'll let you know how that goes. I am also going raspberry picking tomorrow to make jam and to freeze some for the winter. AND...I am going garage saling today! YEAH! If I find anything totally awesome, fun, and cool, I'll let you know. :) Have a great Friday!

A Day in the life of Piper...
Begin by waking up and going outside to play. Here I am in my car.
Here I am on my tricycle. I finally figured out how to get on and off of it. Yeah!
Go inside for a snack.
Wash off with sissy in the bathtub.
Time for bed. It has been a long and exhausting day.
Oh to live the life of a little one again. Don't they have it so rough? Try to imagine a day of no worries. Your biggest worries of the day would probably be when my diaper is going to get changed, when my next snack is going to come, or if I will get to play outside that day. Sounds pretty rough to me. :)

These are pics from when we went up north. Kasey found these glasses and wanted her pic with them. Of course, Ambry also wanted hers. Aren't they hillarious?!?

Last Thursday I didn't have to watch the little 6 month old baby boy that I normally have. What a nice day off! I only had Lindzi to watch and I decided that we were going out. We first made a trip to the library and then went up to the gardens. It was a such a nice day for it.
Just as we were leaving, I noticed all these old cars parked around. There must have been some exhibit going on. The girls thought they were so cool so we took a couple pictures by them. It is amazing how different cars look now a days.
On a side note, I got a "new" camera! Yeah!!! I didn't have it when I took these pictures. Dustin and Robyn brought it over on Sunday. Thank you so much for letting me buy it from you guys!!!!
