Nine Months Old!

How is it possible that this boy has been with us for 9 months now?  Man, do we ever love him to pieces!  How did we get so lucky to wind up with 2 such adorable children?

Freezer Jam

Strawberry freezer jam is a necessity in our house.  It's one of the recipes that I contributed to our little family.  My mom makes freezer jam and I can remember Grandma Foster making freezer jam.  A couple of months ago we finished our very last container of jam and it was a SAD day when we had to buy a jar from the store.  It did not taste anything like jam is supposed to taste.  A few weeks ago while I was away for the night at our church's women's retreat David discovered that Meijer was running a Super Saturday sale on strawberries and they were only $1/pound.  So he stocked up.  He stocked up in a very Gafford way and bought 15 pounds of strawberries!  We got to spend a couple of hours the next day teaching Addison how to make freezer jam.  (We did NOT make all 15 pounds into jam.  That would have been ridiculous... a little.  We also froze some for smoothies.)
