Fall Fun!

I bought a bunch of these beautiful apples at the grocery store. My intension was for the kids to take one to their teachers because they were HUGE and BEAUTIFUL! However, this crazy mom forgot that she had purchased them and we didn't give them to the teachers last week. This week is fall break so we don't have school. I was afraid the apples would go bad so we made an apple pie instead. The kids had a great time using the "apple, peeler corer slicer." I hightly recommend them. Elisabeth is peeling. As she peels she is munching on the extra peel. The little boys weren't much help. They mostly ate the already peeled apples.
See what a fantastic job that gadget does. It works great for potatoes, too.
Hogan is holding a pile of peel. The kids had the best time playing with the peel and eating it. Unfortunately, I did not get any pictures of the finished pies. They were ugly anyway. :) I am not a Martha Stewart. They tasted delicious, though.
Today, we went to the pumpkin patch. It was very picked over but still fun. Sweet kiddies!


Sweet BIG boy.
Only little girl.
Poser!
Then there was Beck. He was not wanting his picture taken. Argh....there is always one.
Have a great day!

That last picture is hysterical. "Hmmph! I don't want to have a good time!" Your kids are so gorgeous -- even when they don't want their picture taken! :)

your kids are SOOOO very cute. In fact, today Jill and I were talking about how cute they are and she said it (I totally agree)--they are like magazine cute. It really looks like the perfect fall day!

Well, disgustingly beautiful pics as usual, my dear! You really do have pretty children! Even little Beck--you gotta have one, you know. My parents have that apple thing, and had an older one before that. I have put in many hours on that thing in my younger life!!

Those pictures cracked me up...especially the last one! Priceless!

And for the record, I'll take a delicious "ugly" pie any day!

Great pics. It looks like it was a beautiful day. Now you have me wanting apple pie! Lastly, you tease me with that picture where a Wataburger sign is in the background. I LOVE Wataburger. Add another restaurant to my list to visit at Christmas time.
