My favorite season is upon us! FALL!  It seriously is my favorite.  The thought of jeans and sweatshirts and comfy cool weather makes my heart happy.  Another thing that makes my heart happy is doing family things in the fall and holidays that are coming up.  September and October are the perfect time for apple picking.  We love the fresh delicious apples that you can go to the farm and pick yourself.  The kids totally love it.  Plus, this was Charlee’s first year of being able to pick them herself.  She really just wanted to pick up all the ones on the ground.a simple recipe :: apple crisp

This past weekend we went to a local farm to pick some apples.  It was actually quite hot, but we were able to pick 10lbs of apples in no time.

Now, that you have picked all your apples what will you do with them.  My first recipe to make is apple crisp, this is my all time favorite recipe.  Everyone loves it.  One year we actually had a apple crisp contest and mine won. That just means you have to try it.
