Tomatoes and Toilet Paper

We saw Rachel's post of Layla with toilet paper curlers, and we decided to try it with Natalie (we used Kleenex though). All I can say is, so cute, and not that much work! We'll definitely have to do this one again.

And here are the kids helping me can. Carson was awesome at peeling the skins off the tomatoes and peaches. I figured he'd get bored after a few minutes, but he never did! He peeled almost the whole box of tomatoes in one sitting, and he could peel them faster than I could cut them up. Definitely more help than I could ever have hoped for! And of course Natalie wanted to help too, though I think she ate more than she peeled. We had a great time canning, and now we have a bunch of peaches, pears, pie cherries, salsa, and spaghetti sauce! Yummy...

I have never heard of using TP for curlers! How creative! Can't believe how much curl you got! Nat looks so cute! Great idea having the kids help can. Sounds like you did a ton! Love to the kids!

Looks like fun! And those curls are great! Iris already has the curls and Abby won't let me touch her hair anymore, so maybe I'll just live vicariously through you!

Logan wouldn't appreciate curls either so I will have to live vicariously through you too. LOL. She looked way cute though!

I'd like to learn how to can. And what a nice surprise to have so much help. :) You're kids are too cute. I hope that you figure out what's causing the vomiting.
