Pie Filling, Apple Sauce & Sweet Corn

On Monday Moms family came for the day. See in our family Mondays are just grand!!! Uncle Waynes live on a farm, Uncle Roys own a Bulk food Store and Deli with full time employees and our shop is closed on Mondays. So we often get together on Mondays. This time we canned pineapple pie filling, applesauce and did 25 dozen sweet corn!!!

Just a warning, there are lots of pictures:)

Many Hands...

...make work light!

One of the things that most stands out to tourists when they come visit our community is how the Amish and Mennonites work together and help out where needed. I was just reminded of that last night when we helped my uncles family move the contents of their country store to a brand new facility next door. It seemed like people came out of the woodwork to help move, stock, organize and clean. Friends, family, church people...

Some discussed what they should be doing next..


Now where exactly was this product supposed to go?


This is just my size!!!






Dirty faces and toes..



Pony Rides.






Relaxing on the new porch.





Putting up the new sign.

And..they opened up today to the delight of their customers...

Home Sweet Home

It is always so exciting and fun to pack up and go on a trip but it is always so much fun to come back home again! I am sitting in the living room with a cup of coffee after catching up in the kitchen with my sisters and mom. It is so good to be home again!! I can't wait for my bed! On Tuesday I will be heading back to work again so you will be seeing some sewing related pictures soon.

Way back in the hills

On Thursday we drove through the ozarks and found the neatest cafe in Jasper. Est in 1909 it has the look and feel of a classic 1950's diner. The food was wonder an reasonably priced. Ozark Cafe is right on the main drag and hard to miss.
