An Apple Pie

“Mom, I’m picking apples at Matt’s and we’re going to make an apple pie…”
So driving off in the pouring rain she set off on her mission. A few hours later, we had created this:

Lots of fun – she ‘camera-phoned’ pictures of the pie to her Dad. We had girls night watching chick flicks and eating pie. I ended up with Ransom, Bruno and Chelsey all in my Bed – and no… I don’t have a king size bed….But there was enough covers for everyone so we all slept well.

I’ve got 8 blocks completed on the Harvest Home project. The completed size will be 64 by 76 ¼”. I’m shooting for four blocks a day. But first I’ve got my last class with my Sunday school kids before getting a new crop for the coming school year. I want the class to be special so I’m off to play with the construction paper for tomorrow’s class.

Gratitudes:
Cellphones to talk with Don
Pie plates and Dishes - I’m guilty of having too many
The hum of the dishwasher this morning while everyone else sleeps

Sounds like a fun time for all. What kind of apples do you use for your apple pie?

Sue said...

That looks so wonderful! I love the display along with the pie too:D
Boy, it's the season. Our apple tree out behind the house is just getting right for picking here in a couple of weeks! Can't wait to make some of my own:)

Apple pie is my favorite type of pie! Looks ever so yummy. Where's the vanilla ice cream to go with it?

Apples sure do mean fall. I bought apples yesterday and made a crock pot of apple sauce today. Plan to make a pie out of the remaining apples....decided that after seeing your pie!! I like mine slightly warm and topped with ice cream.

Sorry to read that Don has been laid off and things aren't looking good for you either. It sounds as if Chelsey is making sure her Mom is ok though.

The only thing that I like with vanilla ice cream is maple syrup!!!!!!! Having never been an apple pie person though DH loves it.

Pie makes everything temporarily better. Blogger should have spell check in the comments lol. Mmmm...pie...a trip to the orchard is now on the list for this week.
