More Canned Gifts and Little Pumpkin Baseball

At our last Stamp Club I taught them how to can gifts. You basically just cut the bottom of a can open with a safety can opener, fill it with a gift and seal it closed with Crystal Effects. Joyce, made these darling gifts from short pineapple cans. Aren't they darling?

She stuffed them with would be a hard decision to destroy the can to get the gift! Ü

We had a bit of sunshine and the snow had melted last week, so it was time to get in the ceremonious end of season pumpkin baseball game. The pumpkins are pretty gross after they've been frozen a couple time...but it never stops my kids especially my ring leader husband!!!

Nicholas smashes a big one!

Benjamin in on the fun too! Sarah awaits the real baseball as she is a retriever you know.,..she refuses to retrieve pumpkins!

  6. Great pictures. My Golden won't even retrieve a baseball. He watches it drop then turns to us w/ a look that says something like "You, with the thumbs, you go get that, k?"
