Saturday Pics for the Week

Another Saturday, and more memories made. I enjoy sharing them with you  each week.


No pic--I seem to miss Sunday more than any other day, must be because we are so busy. Will have to work on that!


The kids played costume party for Ellie's game. They sure are cute and creative!


Ellie and Jeff and Barney (our buck Chinchilla). The kids are great helpers with the rabbits.


In the spirit of dressing up for games, Jayne created this Teenage Mitant Ninja Turtle costume from our dress up clothes.  The nunchucks were a great Dollar Tree find for both her and Jeff. They battle each other! 


Grandma helped the kids make caramel apples. They sure enjoyed eating them.


We are learning about forces in nature, and did an experiment to witness the strength of water pressure. No one thought the water would stay in the inverted glass, but they learned they were mistaken. I love hands on learning opportunities. 


We were blessed with a deer from a family friend, and are very thankful for it! My step-dad and I butchered it on Monday, and today I made a roast in the crockpot. The recipe I found was super simple and called for bacon. It was a keeper! I'll have to share the recipe soon.

We also harvested apples today from our main apple tree. There were sure a lot! Here are some of them...

Simon thought it was great fun to roll them out of the bags. He'll be out of the kitchen the next few days as we slowly turn this bounty into applesauce (my goal is 26 quarts--a six month supply at a quart a week...I have 10 quarts already, so 16 more to go), dried apples, apple rolls and apple juice. We might get sick of them before we run out, but I don't want them to go to waste.

What are your favorite apple recipes? Did you have a good week?
