How do you like them apples?

For family night this week, we did Apple Night.

I had really wanted to go up to Oak Glen and pick some apples, but I don’t know if we’re ever going to find time to do that while it’s still apple pickin’ season, so we just did apple night at home instead.  We bought a ton of apples at the grocery store!  I had them all set up in a bowl and then I realized that Geric took the camera to work with him, so just imagine it. 

During the day the boys tore paper and made apple placemats and I made apple candleholders.

They also helped me make homemade applesauce and homemade (even the crust, people!) apple pie!

Here was our dinner:  Apple chicken, applesauce, rice, and green beans.

After dinner, I realized I only had one apple left.  I had planned on bobbing for apples, so that was out.  We played hot potato, apple style.  Caden won.

Then we took a break to give Jacob a bath and get him to bed.  He was losing it.  And we played a game that Geric thought of where we rolled the apples into different containers and got points.  Caden won.

Then we relaxed and enjoyed our apple pie.  So yummy!
