An attempt to declare the Glory of God for what He has chosen to do with our lives. A legacy to leave to my children in the telling of it.

14 Gallons Later

Apples, apples, apples, apples, apples. One of the things I enjoy about Fall is the abundance of ripe apples. As a family, we were able to go pick apples from a friend's tree over the weekend. Then the kids and I spent a day washing, peeling, chopping, and freezing apples. Everybody had a job to do which made the work go quickly.

This handy peeler that a friend found at a flea market for us last summer even makes the work fun. Grace was the official apple bagger. Micah started out as the official apple washer, but given his history with sinks and sprayers we quickly found him another job.

We taught him how to spell "apple" and let him label the bags.

And then we put Alexis in charge of the sink and the sprayer.

In the end, we had 14 gallons of apple's in the freezer, which will be used to make lots of apple pies this winter, and a clean kitchen again.

Love the peeler! I'll have to keep my eyes out for one of those.

But come on, I think Mike's gets a bad wrap over there. :)

He sure has his Aunt Traci wrapped around his little finger! I swear~ that boy is going to be either a marine biologist or else a pastor so he can at least baptize people! A mother can dream, can't she?!

we've been doing the same minus the free part. Weird, I live in apple country but for the life of me can't find free apples:)
