I didn't appreciate the fall at the beginning...I just like summer so much, but the more and more it's here, the more I like it.
Between conference sessions on Saturday, we went to the apple orchards on campus. You go and get as many apples as you want, and then weigh them in a little booth for 50 cents a pound. We got 47 lbs--it was so much fun! When we got home, after the second Saturday session, I canned some applesauce, and the next day made an apple pie while some friends were over (the Youngs)--it was great! When we went down to Utah, we canned the apples so that anytime we want to make something with apples we just have to open a jar and they'll be right there! (we just canned them in water so we could make stuff sweet and not-sweet)
Later that week, Stephanie Young came over again. We made sugar cookies and decorated them with Halloween stuff! I had been really really wanting the 101 cookie cutters from Walmart for $10, so Jordan said I could finally buy them for that occasion. It is a great set of cookie cutters--I'm so happy to have them. Anyway, there were a lot of Halloween cutters so we used those. The only one that was left by the time I got the camera out was my haunted house--they were so good, and so fun! My friend, Emily and her son Jensen, came over too, and all three boys just played with the pumpkins on our kitchen floor--they had a blast.
We got some Halloween clothes from Jordan's mom, and they are adorable! Porter is so cute, and stuff like this doesn't hurt! Thanks, Tawna!
