Apple Pie

My husband's favorite dessert in the whole world is home-made apple pie.When the air gets crisp, it just feels right to bake something with cinnamon.

Jonathan apples from the local orchard.

Have to mix the apple-y goodness with a wooden spoon.


And since my kids were helping me, D-A-D for the steam vents.

They loved making it for him and he enjoyed eating it up!

This is the word that I use to describe my friend's visit. I've only met Trisch once in person, but I feel like I've known her forever because we both spend lots of time on the T-Tapp forum, we both home school, but most importantly, we both love the Lord!

She and her family are traveling through the eastern United States for the next two weeks and they chose to visit my family!

We ate dinner and then her family ministered to us with song and instrument. How talented they are! How beautifully they praised our Lord!

Tuning up.

Such talent! Such sweet spirits!

The boys got a kick out of our parakeet, Augustine. Loved those belly laughs!

Angelic voices praising the Lord!

Trisch and me

The little boys. My son is on the left.

Little girls. My daughter is on the right.

Goodbye! Thank you for visiting! Please come again!

Fall Garden Party

I had some friends over for a fall garden party. The garden is strung with twinkle lights so it was especially pretty after it got dark. Everyone brought something tasty to eat. I made a crockpot of hot spiced apple cider. We had a bonfire and roasted marshmallows. It was a wonderful evening!

Kim at Dear Daisy Cottage is celebrating her 4 year blogging anniversary with a wonderful give-away! I just love her blog!

Edited to add: I'm trying the trackback thing, but don't think I'm doing it right, so if the give-away above doesn't work, try this. I'm still learning.
