Parenting

Look at those faces! 😆 all that squishy stuff! The other day our two oldest daughters led the 4 younger kids in making fresh pumpkin purée. They all worked together to carved, seed, pressure cook (for only 6 min! These machines are genius!), prepare it for the freezer, and they even cleaned up! It was so messy
