Produce Productions

As promised, here is a post sharing some of the things we have done with the pumpkins and apples we have collected this fall.  The pumpkins are going to be no surprise - we turned them into jack-o-lanterns.
 Brynnie was just a wee bit grossed out by the insides of a pumpkin,
 but with a lot of encouragement and team-work
she managed to get the job done.
 Blair declared the smell of the pumpkin "won-er-ful", which I rather doubt since all of them had a tiny bit of mold starting to grow on the seeds.  (This always seem to happen to me - we haven't been able to roast pumpkin seeds in several years!)
 Ian, as you might expect, had no concerns with smells, mold or slime.
 Once we got the pumpkins taken care of, I had some fun baking with all the apples.  One recipe I especially enjoyed was "Pumpkin Apple Bread".  I made a double batch into several loaves of bread and mini-muffins, and they did not last long at all.
(I also learned that I am an especially bad food photographer - trust me, it tastes a whole lot better then these photos make it look.)

Happy producing, everyone!

Brynn is hilarious!!
Blair is funny. "Won-er-ful"
Can Ian's arms get any skinnier?

Great activities for fall. :)

I have noticed that Ian always seems to have just the bare minimum of necessary clothing. All that excess energy making him overheat?

I cannot make that kid keep a shirt on outside of school. Drives me crazy!
