millions of peaches, peaches for me:)

 i declare that the peach is the most beautifully colored fruit i have ever laid eyes upon.
after i slipped their skins off, they nakedly glimmered at me from my counter tops.
shiny, sweet, and slippery.
brennan and max ate two peaches a piece.
and then ran outside in the rain.
until the thunder and lightening scared them back in.
max loved jumping in and out,
exclaiming her hair was wet.
and face rain kissed.
and she was happy about it.
so proud:)
i bottled those peaches until i ran out of bottles.
and then i did something i swore i'd never do.
i blended up those peaches,
{in my ninja, bless my ninja}
and made my baby man chase some homemade baby food.
in baby jars i've been saving for such an event.
{that i swore i'd never do. did i mention that already?}
and do you know what?
he gobbled an entire jar of those homemade, 
homegrown peaches down.
and i knew exactly where those peaches came from.
how those peaches were made.
and what was put in that little baby jar i fed him.
and thanks to my neighbor's tree,
they were also FREE:)
{thank you hanna for sharing, thank you julie for picking and planting!}
"if i had my little way, i'd each peaches everyday.
millions of peaches, peaches for me..."
i sang that while i was bottling my peaches.
my kids kept asking me to sing it over and over again.
except i only know that one verse.
so it got old really fast.
{old to me, not to them.}
millions of peaches, peaches for me...

I am so stealing that idea! I have a few left that didn't fit in my jars and was trying to decide what to do with them. Thanks for solving my debate!

Beautiful canning pics! Guess what... I canned pears a few weeks ago. It was my first time really canning a lot of stuff at once. I thought I would like it! I ordered 3 boxes of pears... I was miserable. I hated it! And now I'm scared to eat them because what if I canned them wrong and my children die of botulism? I'm a bad mormon...I hate canning. End of story. :)
