Apple prints hanging on the line.

Eating a whole apple, peel and all for the first time ever!

That's because her cool cousin Deagan ate his that way when we went apple picking.

Mmmm, apples!

 We have been enjoying our apples. We made a pie and a big batch of applesauce and have been eating lots of them for snacks. We did some apple printing too. I liked the way they looked hanging on the line, like peace flags. The dress Pen is wearing in these pictures was made by my mom for a friend's daughter a long time ago. When Pen was a year it was passed on to her. It fits her now, and it makes me so happy to see her run and twirl and love wearing this dress. We have been very lucky to have this dress passed on, as well as two beautiful sweaters knit by Mom and and a darling jacket, all three made for my cousin Melissa when she was tiny. It means so much to me that Penelope can wear these beautiful things that were handmade by her Grandma Peggy.
