Watch Out Gerber


Last week, I decided to test my Mormoness and turn all of this




into this



(homemade applesauce and pureed peaches galore!)


I bought two 20 lbs boxes of of apples and peaches and turned into 
a crazy woman making baby food for sweet Austin. And I did it all while wearing my apron and listening to Rosemary Clooney.  June Cleaver's got nothing on me!

 My freezer is chock full of 
organic goodness and it makes me smile.  



This little guy is also making me smile.

Whoa, that is pretty ambitious. So if we need any baby food we'll be sure to stop by.

Amazing! I need to prove my mormoness and get on the canning train.

I'll just call you Molly Mormon from now on. I tried that with Jacob and it didn't work out so well. Maybe you can teach me how some day!

Yummy! Making baby food is one thing I really do miss about having a baby. I found such satisfaction in knowing that the food my babies were eating came straight from my own fresh food.

And this picture...oh my goodness! First of all, you look gorgeous! Serious. Second, the fact that Austin looks like he is rooting on your cheeks has me smiling from ear to ear. Love it!

Karen, you look fabulous!!
Austin, I love your hair!!

PTA prez, super mom, and now canning champion...You really are making me look bad. I guess I need to spend less time in my hammock.

Good for you. I always felt like I'd done something great after making baby food. Those peaches look Lisch! And you look great in that picture!
