This is a family joy. Man of the woods loves the apple picking part...
...While Laughter just likes to be around, this year his focus was how the wagon worked.
I love the smell, the squeals of joy the boys have in the orchard,
and watching summer turn to fall.
|Look, Mom, I'm a moose eating apples.|
We all love the fun of pealing, eating, playing and enjoying our time in the kitchen together.
Making apple sauce together is always a mile marker, each year showing how much the boys have grown. Now, man of the woods is able to help boil the apples down.
|Little Laughter's almost 2 year old toes from the first time he "helped" make the applesauce.|
Gifts over and over again...
~ Gazing at the beauty of apple trees.
~ Working at the counter with my three favorite men.
~ Having little hands involved in the process of making apple sauce.
~ Turning all of life into math practice.
~ The smell of hot apples and spice.
~ Even though this year I was to busy to listen for the "pop" of lids sealing seeing the end result sitting on my counter.
