I’ve had lots of things to write about recently but not a lot of time, so here’s a brief recap of what we have been doing the past few weeks. All images are in the gallery in the Autumn Fun album.
My co-worker Melissa had a birthday…she leaves the office at 3:30. Six of us descended upon her desk and wrapped literally everything in foil. Something tells me that before future birthdays, she’ll be working late.
Melody and I learned how to make homemade applesauce. It’s super easy – 3 1/2 lbs apples peeled, cored & chopped; 1/4 cup water; 1 tbsp lemon or lime juice; 1 tbsp vanilla; cook in crock pot on low 4 hours. Mash for chunky applesauce.
Gramma Alice, Melody and I went to Disneyland one Saturday and had a wonderful time! We went on the new Finding Nemo ride, the Autopia, the train, and so much more. We called it an early day so we wouldn’t all be too exhausted around 3:30. It was so much fun!
My little superhero was Super Girl for Halloween. We trick or treated our own neighborhood for the first time and there were a lot of folks participating. Our next door neighbor Caelen (watch out Burke, she loves him!) had never actually been trick or treating, so it was a lot of fun to see the kids having so much fun together. This was the first year Melody seemed to really get it. And, she’s been obsessed with candy since.
