  1. Cedar has a new bed! 🙂 Exciting day for him?

    I know how it is to want an even number of canned jars. With our pressure canner, it always has to be in loads of 7 but with the water bath, I think it fits 12 and I’m definitely a person who loves even numbers.

    LOL about Cedar saying, “Meat. Fun”. Cracks me up!! 😉

  2. Yay for Cedar and his big boy bed, I hope that transition goes well for him and you 😉
    It must be the applesauce making time of year 😀
    And, we just watched Voyage of the Dawn Treader this past week. 🙂
