Labor Day

As you can see I didn't Labor on Labor Day!

So we made a family day of it, a little of this and a little of that...


Here is Madison pushing Wesley and James in the soap box car he made.


Wesley striking a pose on top of the car. Madison isn't finished painting the car and he has a few kinks to work out on it still.
Look what fun it is to ride in the car!!!!

CUCUMBERS
The girls and I worked on some canning.

With team work we had the cucumbers canned in no time.

We ended up with 17 quarts, and they'll be ready in 4 to 6 weeks!


SWEET POTATOES
This is what we canned next.

We only canned half of the sweet potatoes that we have, so little more work to be done there. I was just thrilled we were able to get any canning in before Baby Munck arrives.

Check out Wordless Wednesday for more Labor Day weekend pictures.

Hi Laura, I thought when I saw the blog say Labor Day, that it would have been the day you were in labor! Maybe soon you can call it labor day for yourself when Baby Munck will make his appearance.

I too thought this might be an announcement. I did have several hours of contractions Labor Day evening but I'm still here too. As you said, tomorrow would be a great day for babies to come for us. Let's see. Email me and let me know what your doctor has to say tomorrow. I go too so I will do a post tomorrow afternoon.

I am totally impressed at how much extra stuff you get done in addition to just "regular" every day life! Your canning is impressive and your pictures are always great.
