Halloween Week! : )

This greets you as you walk in front door :) We are very proud of our first Halloween Craft! :) All the kiddos point to it daily and say "my pumpkin"  The kids had a great time making the faces for there Jack O Lanterns :) :) We also decorated leaves with colors and rhinestones :)

Noah really loves our scarecrows outside... he always talks about it as we leave or go outside :)

We colored Jack O Lanterns and Kittens :) And, we made these super easy hand bats :) Noah LOVED to glue the wings and eyes on! :)

Noah excited about the ghost cookies we are about to bake!

Apple Butter

6 pounds of apples. After weighing, peel, core and chop them (It's tastiest if you use a few different kinds of sweet apples, like Gala, Fuji, Braeburn or the Delicious varieties)
4 cups of sugar (you could probably use less)
3 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt.

Mix the dry ingredients then pour over the apples and toss. Cook in a crockpot on high for an hour and then on low for 10 hours. Remove the lid and cook for another hour. Then blend it on low to make it extra smooth for a few mins. you might want to do it in small amounts because it is hot and can burn you!
When walmart had the glass jars... I bought a couple. 
Jar and freeze :)
