Hi Friends! Thanks for stopping by The Homemaking Party! Just wanted to share some of the fun we've had over the last couple weeks. The 23rd was my birthday and Jamie surprised me by taking the day off and taking us all to a local farm to pick out pumpkins!
While I was there, I grabbed some apples and have been busy making applesauce! I'll have about 40 quarts of applesauce and about 15 quarts of pumpkin puree once I'm through processing all I purchased!
Jamie even got in the canning mood and make some jars of pickled asparagus---his first time canning!
The night of November 1st, we had a Fall party. The kids decorated and carved happy scenes on their pumpkins.
Here's Brenna (our youngest) proudly displaying the owl sister helped her carve. After pumpkin carving time, we had snacks and watched the old movie, The Parent Trap with Hayley Mills.
Oh, I don't want to leave out my homemade cider! This was my first year making it straight from the apples and it was AWESOME!!
Thanks for stopping by---hope you're having a great week!
