All because two people fell in love...

We met in February 1989, started dating in May, and got married in September. And Josh came *almost* 11 months later, just in case y'all were wondering. And then no more came. We waited, and waited, and then Lauren decided to make her debut in May 1995 (5 weeks early), and then Kayley 1997, Jacob 1998, Krissy 2001, Lindsey 2004 & Joey 2006. We lived in Texas until 2005, and then we moved to Arkansas, just about 25 miles north of Texarkana, Texas. Fortunately all my children are Texans (and my handsome husband) because Texans are just cool. Wish I was a Texan... but husband had to settle with a California gal, which I think is pretty cool too.

After Joey went down for a nap @ 10:30, I made 7 pints of Blackberry Syrup. I thought I would have more, but I guess I didn't have as many berries yesterday as I thought I had. I've made a lot of jams, frozen quite a bit, and have given lots of blackberries away, and that was only on 25 blackberry plants. Next year we will have over 200 plants! YIKES! What will I ever do? Good thing blackberry season only last 6 weeks. I don't think I could do this the whole summer! Next on my list for this afternoon is Grape Faux Jelly. Sounds cool, huh? I'm using yellow squash as the filler. Just like my Apricot Surprise Jam... I used zucchini as the filler, and Oh.My.Gosh! It was soooooooo yummy! I am sure this will be good too. I also have a lot of onions & peppers to chop to get ready for our salsas. I hope the tomatoes will be done soon! :-)
