*In my bestest Rachel Ray voice* YUMM-O! This has to be the sweetest post ever!! Yesterday we went berry picking! We got a ton of Blueberries and 4 pints of Blackberries. The Blueberries went straight to the freezer. They will taste sooo fantastic in muffins, pancakes, cobblers, yadda yadda yadda. And I -- for the first time ever--- made Blackberry Jam. I had one of the jars not seal correctly so I got to Open it and sample it. I cant help it that it took at least 4 whopping spoon fulls for me to get the taste. It is sooooo good and I am sooo uber proud! The berries were in perfect condition and the girls really had a good time. It was the funniest thing, as Heather brought me her bucket of Blueberries. It was T-Tiny. I asked her where her berries were, to which she replied: Ive been eatin! Hmmm...I wonder if they charge you for how many you can stuff into your belly?? I did pay the little man just a little extra to cover our munchies.

It was a perfect day!

But on to a much much more perfect day!! Its Heathers Birthday! 12 years old officially! We are up and running! I hope to share more pics later this afternoon!

Yumm-o indeed. That blackberry jam must be delicious. There is nothing like fresh-picked berries for home cooking, be it making jams or using the berries in baked goods.
