Cleaning canning jars

On Monday last week we had Jean over to help us with cleaning all the mason jars that Mom got for canning. The Lord blessed us with 35 dozen quarts, pints and half-pint jars... For a fair price, but lots of elbow grease.

Barberville Fall Jamboree Pics- Evening Time

Look here!
I found more pictures from our time at Barberville. The Amundsen family was very nice in inviting our family to stay a few hours :) later and jam around the campfire with them and several other families! What a joyous time we had with y'all!
