Fall Has Arrived
We had to can the more tomatoes today. We even canned some green ones, because we have heard that you can make a green tomato relish. We did not have time to make and try the relish before canning, so we just canned some green ones, hoping to try the relish later. It is just an experiment.
The boys always love to work with their dad.
At the end of the canning day, after dinner, I had promised the girls a tea party. Adela and Mary were so excited they ran to put on dresses and made place cards and prizes! I didn't have the heart to dress all up, but I did take off my apron and manage to squeeze a batch of cookies in during canning time.
As classy as we were trying to be we just can't totally get country out of us. Not one of wore shoes. After we started, I notice the list of rules on the table.
Of course, as cute as the girls were, they did not fall from this bumpkin tree. Here I am doing the mom check:
"There's what? on my shirt?"
Oh well, Russian Tea Room may not be for us!
