Family Traditions & Making memories

I've been wanting to get on here the past couple days but life as a mommy is keeping me quite busy.
 Last week went went to visit GG and Grandpa Great. We had such a great time at their house, took them a couple of meals and enjoyed a delicious lunch in their back yard. Kate was thrilled to see them again, it had been too long! It's a lift for everyone when Kate is around. Seeing the joy on my grandparents faces when they are with Kate is the sweetest sight. Kate loves GG's jewelry and glasses and loves when her grandpa great sings her songs and makes her giggle. We do cherish every visit with them.
he is so in love
Saturday was jam making day. It has been a family tradition for over 50 years and we are still carrying it on! We didn't make any last year so this year we made up for it. We did both strawberry and peach jam, 78 jars worth! Amazing. It's so much fun and really quite easy. Kate joined in on the tradition this year.
Well, more like played around the kitchen but next year we will have an extra helper on our hands!
Check out our girl in her own apron.
 Her mimi got it for her in Franklin, Tennessee.
 Precious or what?

Sunday night my little family went to celebrate my best friends 25th birthday.
 It was so much fun hanging out and catching up with my girls.
 Kate thought it was pretty cool too.

.forever friends.

Look who has their candy corn and apple Cinnamon candle out

And one more thing before I end this random post...

trying new foods is so fun!

I think that's all I have for now. I couldn't not make my 500th post random!!

Absolutely wonderful pictures. The legacy continues with jam making. Great pictures with G&G. Too cute for words. Congrats on your 500th post!
