A spoonful of apple butter

Mmmm. That's the only word that could possibly come close to describing the delicious-ness of this weekend.

Visiting Mandy and making apple butter was so much fun! I have lots to tell you but I have to get all the pictures and stories organized and coherent first. In the meantime, a couple videos for you!

I'm not talking very loudly in this one and I sort of lost track of what I was saying because I was concentrating on stirring. (It's hard work! I stirred for five minutes and my arms felt like they do after an hour of yoga!)

In this one you get to meet Pap, Mandy's grandfather. He is beyond adorable. It's a little quiet halfway through (except for the wind!) but stick with us because we call out a few people and start talking about how Pap's going to be a celebrity.

I'll be back with more stories and photos later this week! How was your weekend readers? Happy Halloween! Happy almost November!

LOL. Love that Mandy says I'm allergic to apples and then you say I'd still love to be there; so true! I would LOVE to be there. Next year I hope. You girls are awesome and Pap? i can't wait to meet him too. Love you!

I love apple butter so much! Especially the kind made by my grandparents' church. Handmade is so much better than store bought!

And your videos cracked me up!

It's Mandy's mythical Pap, at last!! It looks like you guys are having a blast, and like the apple butter is amazing- I would totally bribe you to send me some!!

Glad you had a fun weekend, what a fall thing to be doing :)
