Apple Annie's

Last week we went to pick apples and pumpkins with some of our extended family. The kids had such a good time, especially picking apples. Aidan was so excited about using the apple picker. Unfortunately, we didn't get any pictures in the pumpkin patch because a tire on our double stroller had a blow out, and we were too busy trying to keep track of our kids to take pictures. Oh well, maybe next year... I had planned on attempting a pie with the apples we picked, but my kids ate them all before I could--secretly, I was really happy about that, since baking is not really my forte. Not pies, anyway. I am 33 and have never baked a pie in my life--not unless you count pre-heating the oven and popping in a frozen Marie Calendar's or Sara Lee! Any time I go anywhere with all four of our kids, I tend to get a little frazzled and overwhelmed, which leads to impatient and cranky. This outing was no exception, but at least Matthew took the day off of work to spend with us and help me. And, at least the kids had a good time and we were able to get some good pictures and delicious apples. Next week for FHE will will decorate our pumpkins and put them on display. That I am excited for!

I have always wanted to go to Apple Annie's, but we never have. Baking a pie is simple. Come over and I will show you!!!!
