Thicker Than Blood

This rings so true for me! This certainly isn't to discourage my blood relatives, because I don't know what I would do without them! But the family that isn't blood is just as important, and sometimes even more important than the blood who won't accept you for who you are. :)

An Apple A Day

Well, this is my second apple post in a row. Our home hasn't been without apples in stock for weeks. My kids LOVE apples!

The apple eaters. I think they're pretty good, too!  :) 

Anyone have some awesome apple recipes?

Apple Shake Ups

This is a hit with Vincent! Then again, why wouldn't it be? It's certainly a very sweet snack!

What you'll need:

Ziploc bag

Peel an apple and cut it into toddler-size pieces, or cut it into larger slices and have your older toddler use a plastic knife to cut it into smaller pieces. Place 1-2 tablespoons of sugar and about 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon into a Ziploc bag. Add a few apple pieces, seal the bag, and shake to coat the apples. Remove the coated apples from the bag and eat!
