Also, just a quick note some of the products might sell you to other companies. Read all of the small print. Another note, if they ask for your phone number and you don't want them to be calling you as I had some sell my info and then had people calling because they said I had signed up for information about college, you can usually put 123-456-7890 as your number.

Rockin' around the Christmas tree
At the Christmas party hop,
Mistletoe hung where you can see,
Every couple tries to stop,
Rockin' around the Christmas tree,
Let the Christmas spirit ring,
Later we'll have some pumpkin pie,
And we'll do some caroling.
I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
No crocodiles, no rhinoceroses
I only like hippopotamuses
And hippopotamuses like me too!Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Here is a picture of the baby's crib and bedding. Thank you Sharon for the crib and Shirley, Angela and Toni for the bedding. I love it and can't wait to see her sleeping peacefully.
This picture doesn't have anything to do with the baby, but Charles picked this tomato in our garden. Isn't it the cutest thing you have ever seen? He put it in his salsa we made on 9/4/08.

5 big onions (or more)
18 jalapeno peppers
1 cup white vinegar
1 1/2 cup sugar (more or less)
8 teaspoons canning salt
6 teaspoons garlic (minced or dried - you can add more if you like)
chopped cilantro (fresh or dried - just to you liking)
Drop tomatoes in boiling pot of water 15 - 20 seconds. Core and slip off peel. Run tomatoes, onions & peppers through food processor. Mix all ingredients together and bring to a boil. Turn down heat and simmer for and hour or so to cook down a little. Taste. Pour salsa into hot clean jars, 1/2 inch headroom. Hot water bath pints 10 min - quarts 15 min.
We would like to thank Merrie Rivers for the recipe. We tasted ours before it boiled and decided it would be great. We didn't taste it again after boiling. We also made ours chunky, but you can blend down in the food processor to your liking. We also boiled ours for about 1 1/2 hours to cook down more of the liquid for extra chunky. However you like it doesn't matter just add and take away until you find your own perfect recipe. Ours made 5 quarts and 1 pint.
