Last night I was told to make myself scarce when Jerem got home. Him and the kids had a project. 15 minutes later the kids marched into the living room carrying 12 pint jars all closed up with pieces of paper in each one. My mission? To put the “puzzle” together and figure out what my birthday gift was. This is the picture Jerem used. Anson looks like he’s trying to be all Mr. Cool, “you want garden fresh produce? Use this.” Ava, “I can hardly stand the excitement, it’s a CANNER”. Paige, “this is the face I make when I’m told to eat my vegetables”.

It was SO creative of him to do it that way rather than just wrap it up. And by the way, I LOVE it. I’m a practical gift lover. I have a small pressure canner that I can fit about 5 pint jars in, so this is going to make canning season so much easier! I told him it was probably a good thing he didn’t get me an ironing board, that may have been taking the practical a little too far.

Thanks hun, you’re the best !
