An unidentified member of our familiy made this "football" today:
(No, Caleb didn't make it!)
Okay, here's the contest.
1. You have to guess what the football is made out of.
2. Leave me a comment at the bottom of this post (click on "0 comments"), or email me, with your guess!
3. You have until 12:00 Noon on Monday, June 14th to cast your vote. (Only one per person, please! :)
And the prize will be...your name and picture (if I have one of you) on our blog. :) [I don't know what else of mine I could give that anyone would want... :-] I know that doesn't inspire you to vote, but I just thought a contest would be fun! :)
I will give away the answer to the football's make-up sometime after June 14th, and the person who wins will get their name and picture, on our blog. (If you don't want a picture, let me know. :) If everyone guesses what the football is correctly...I'm never doing a contest again. Okay, just kidding. =) I'll put the names in a hat and draw out one person and that will be the winner.
Now hurry up and give me your guesses! :)
(I'm excited already! :)
Today we're canning cherries. Yesterday was raspberry day, so today is cherry day! :)
For those of you who have never canned, it involves a bunch of work but at the end, there's lots (well, sometimes) of yummy food, freshly preserved for our family! :)
Before you can you have to clean everything...jars, lids, and bands. So, (since we're doing 3 batches of jam) we stuck all the stuff in the dishwasher. :)
It's hard to see what everything is, but the top rack held most of the bands, along with some jars and a few lids.
The jars and bands.
This is the bottom level where most of the jars and lids were piled.
Lids and silverware from breakfast! :)
Lexi washed and pitted one bucket of cherries for us, and Seth is currently doing another.
And since I'm on the subject, here is a quick picture of the jams we made yesterday:
On the left is raspberry jam and on the right is low-sugar raspberry jam. Altogether there are 5 half-pints and 5 pints of yummy jam! :)
Okay, I need to go help Mama get a batch of jam ready! :)

P.S. - It is such a beautiful day outside, isn't it? :)
