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.

Blackberry Jam/Jelly

I have no idea why my pictures are not going in the right order.  Not any of them!  Hmph!  So the top picture is Blackberry Jelly.  Only a few jars left of the jelly.  Just took to much time to take all the seeds out!

And this is our Blackberry Jam.  Took some of it to the Miller Family Reunion, and I think one of the bottles "sold" for $25!

Jacob smashing the berries!

Krissy helping to rinse them off before smashing them.

Krissy taking her turns at smashing them, as Lindsey watches.

Jacob still smashing, as Kayley supervises.

Joey wanted a turn... Krissy allowing him.

Kayley still supervising with Lindsey

Cooking the juice!

Waiting for the juice to get done.

Lindsey smashing!

And so, this is what we did in June before we started our busy summer!  Tons of berries that were picked and sold.  Can't wait to make more blackberry jelly next year!
