My favorite days are here...the cozy ones!
The transition of summer into winter is woven with
sun burnt colors
made crisp by the new air's chill.
Fall pauses here for only a brief time
as we gather together
to enjoy the new harvest
brought on by the scattering of seeds.
Said so well below...
"We are in for a spell of perfect weather now,
every day is luminous. "
We spent our autumn Sunday at my parent's home sweet home
making caramel dipped apples
and watching Charlie Brown's The Great Pumpkin.
Traditional Caramel Apples are forever adorable
BUT they're just SO big and hard to eat through
the whole sticky thing at one time.
we made sliced caramel apples
and served them with toothpicks
for smaller treats and easier bites.
The boys took turns dipping their crisp green apples...
Little Titus has a broken collarbone
from a mountain bike crash
and did well using only one hand. ;)
Every single little time I serve cored, sliced apples
the boys use them for secret peek-a-boo views!
Served on toothpicks and ready to sample:
chewy caramel and crisp apple...
We also made some apple n cheddar snacks using symbols of the season.
We used cookie cutters to stamp autumn shapes.
I think this was the boys' favorite part...
We finished our day downstairs in my Dad's toy room
snuggled up for
Charlie Brown...and...The Great Pumpkin.
