 Today (and yesterday) we are making apple dumplings for the whole year. Yesterday we made 79 and we are going to get up to 250!!    We make enough for each of us to have a whole one every Sunday for the whole year with a few extra for when one of our Grandmas come.   We took quite a bit of pictures but I am not going to put them all on here.  I’m doing this and peeling, coring and slicing apples…but its easy!!   Especially when you have a nifty difty tool called a Apple peeler/slicer/corer.  It peels, slices and cores a apple in 16 turns!! (Yes, I counted   And if you want to know, it is 15 turns for a small apple and 17 for a large one.    )  It’s a lifesaver!!!! Well, maybe not : )  But it sure is nice!!!

Now for the funny ones, (not very ladylike games )  we would take a peel and two girls would eat from both ends…


~Suzanna and Cassie   in this one we were having a race seeing who could get to the middle first.

Remember the apple men we did a couple of posts ago??  Here is a new version…a tomato man!!


~His open mouth is perfect for saying that!! : )


Now for the pictures from last Monday…Daddy rented a bobcat and cleaned out the goat barn!!

~Charissa is in awe with something!








~I have no idea what she is doing here!! : )   But I thought it was cute


~Isaiah playing in his car on top of a trailer!


~It looks like Noah is tickling Isaiah  It was so hilarious I just had to add along with the other pictures!!


I guess I better go help clean up and eat lunch!!! : )

    That was a very enjoyable post! How nice to get to have an apple dumpling ever Sunday for a whole year. πŸ˜€ We've been coring/peeling/slicing apples (by hand, not as quick, but still very delightful) and finished about 80lbs of them. We are planning on going back to the orchard to get more. We are freezing them as apple pie filling – not quite dumplings – but there is still a lot you can do with it! πŸ™‚

    Really looking forward to meeting y'all (we're kind of short)!

    I wish I lived on a farm! I loved the tomato man! One time I made a pumpkin man from some pumpkins my mom crochet!

    How many batches of apple dumblings did you make? It reminds me of how I wanted to make apple fritters this fall. I still should now that I saw those dumplings!

    Your almost to your 100th comment. πŸ™‚ I'll help you get there! It's quite victorious when you do. πŸ˜€
