Apple Fun

Fall is here!
A few days before we all fell ill to the flu we had some apple fun.

Yummy organic apples were on sale that week!

Goofing around

We read the story of Johnny Appleseed

Princess played on the floor & loved it when I made eye contact while I read the story.

After our story it was time to make our treat!

This peeler-corer is awesome!

I divided the kids into 2 teams pairing a younger with an older.

We made 2 batches of the same recipe.

They took turns measuring & mixing.

After the dough was mixed I kneaded it and rolled it out.
Then it was time to sprinkle in the apple pieces & brown sugar mix.

I rolled it all up & then cut it into circles.

Bugs with his mouth full of apples.

Apple-Cinnamon Rolls!

Princess was so good. She played & watched us the whole time.

The kids sprinkled a little more cinnamon-sugar mixture on top before we placed them in the oven.

As the big kids cleaned up Bugs went upstairs to play with his "Sodor". He was very proud that he put it together all by himself!
