Fall leaves, Halloween, and Apples

As fall quickly approaches, I enjoy watching the leaves turn to gorgeous shades of yellow, orange, burgundy, and red.

The boys and I raked all of the leaves, but I could not help but let them jump into the last pile.

Halloween came fast this year. The boys love to carve pumpkins!! They both like to do it all themselves and they each have their own ideas of what they want it to look like. Here are the results.

We did our annual trick or treating with Tammy. She was a princess this year. That girl LOVES Halloween.

After that, we gathered treats from Grandma Marti and headed over to see Grandma Dar and Papa. The boys filled their sacks with all the goodies from them too. We then went home and i expected the boys to want to go get more candy, but they started answering the door and handing out candy. They had a blast! They got to see all the kids and the fun costumes. Every time the doorbell rang, they would break out into giggles.

We have gotten a lot of apples from my friend Cathy, and I have been drying them.

Jaxson helped me peel them with our peeler. He thought that was the coolest thing!!

Here are the fruits of his labor.

Here are the YUMMY results.

I have now expanded the menu of dried fruits to pineapple, cherries, apricots, blueberries, and oranges. Mix all these delights together and you have a healthy (delicious) snack.

Getting ready for Jaxson's birthday. That kid can hardly contain himself about his upcoming party. Pictures of that next week.
