1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
6 tbsp. water
8 to 10 apples
I kept (hid) a few leftover apples for this evening when my husband got home and we could share some with the baby and with Daddy. My husband made a fire and I got the kids all bundles up to enjoy our Caramel apples on a crisp Fall night.
We put up their cute little play tent to camp out on the porch until bedtime. We stuffed it with blankies and pillows and don't forget each child's favorite dolly and stuffed animal. In this photo you can see Jaedin's favorite cat named "Snowball" This was my favorite cat when I was a little girl also. I don't think I named her though. The other morning as we were driving to Grandma and Papa's house we had this discussion about the cat..
Mom: Jaedin, What is your cat's name?
Mom: Well your a Boy and your name is Jaedin but I don't call you "boy". So we should name her. And we shouldn't just call it "cat"
Mom: So is your cat a him or a her?
Jaedin: Uhhh a her
Mom: Okay, well she's white. What can you think of that is the color white?
Mom: (thinking it's clearly evident I DO change too many diapers) hmmm..what else is white?
Jaedin: Snow is white
Mom: Okay what about snowy?
Jaedin: No, she looks like a snowball!
TADA!! her name is officially Snowball. And I'm so proud of him because this week he has learned how to name things, interrupt a conversation properly by saying "Excuse Me" and how to Excuse himself from the dinner table when he is done. That doesn't even include his progress with writing his Alphabet and what sounds he's learned this month. I'll make a big post on that I'm sure!
We've had the most fun fall ever so far unplugging ourselves and really spending quality time with each other as a family. I hope they can remember these times when they get older and come around often to make more memories like this! I urge you to go have a Caramel apple night! :)
