Bringing in the Harvest!

A few weeks ago cousin Em and I helped Gram bring in the peach harvest. Here I am in the top of the tree (stradling branches that I'm not sure won't snap). Amelia and Emily are on ladders.
Here I am in my harvesting regalia, which I obviously save for special occassion only.
Amelia and Ellie had all the peaches they could eat, and man did I reap the whirlwind in Ellie's diapers the next day. I was reminded of that part in The Grapes of Wrath where they're all working in the orchards...
By the time all was said and done, Gram probably had about a thousand peaches in her utility room.
We took one huge bag home, and that next morning as Amelia said our breakfast prayer she pretty much summed it up, "Dear Heavenly Father, Oh, what are we going to do with all these peaches?"

We dried them.

How fun! That is so cute what Amelia said about all the peaches!

That sofa in the background is amazing! I love it!

That's the cutest prayer ever.
