Tuesday night I opened up my crock of sauerkraut and boy did it stink (in a good sauerkraut sort of way). I got five quarts when I canned it. I wanted to do pints, but Brian said bigger was better and that way we would have them for BBQs and when we have company over. I am really please at how pretty they look, but I was a little disappointed that I never got to hear the "pop" of the lids sealing. I guess with some of the new lids that just doesn't happen much any more. At least I know that they did seal and it sure will taste good on some brats or sausages.

This year for Halloween all three kids had quite the time coming up with their costumes. Angela wanted to be a ballerina, so we bought a bunch for tulle to make her tu-tu. Last week she decided that she and I did not have the same vision for her costume and she did not want to do it. She was told that she had to come up with something that would not cost anything since we had already spent a bunch of money for the other idea. She ended up being an office girl.
