Apple Print Wreaths

Apples, cut in half
Paper plate, with the center cut out
We cut apples in half. When you cut through the core it leaves a star design from the seeds. Great for apple printing. So pretty.

Once dried, we cut each apple out. And cut a hole in the center of a paper plate to make a wreath. The girls then glued the apples onto the paper plate to make the wreath (didn't get a picture).

My oldest really likes to be creative with whatever project she is working on. So when we were glueing the apples onto the wreath she made a sheep out of glue instead. Silly girl. Here is her glue sheep.

Dehydrating Fruit

My good friend, Rachael, teaches me so much about food. Her passion is preparing and eating whole foods. Last year she taught me to can and together we canned fruit like crazy women! This year I decided to try to dehydrate some apples and pears I received from my parents and a neighbor.
What a healthy, yummy snack. It's totally helping me to not eat all the leftover halloween candy!
It's so easy. My oldest dipped the pear slices in a honey water mixture and placed them on the dehydrator racks. They took about 6 hours to dry and taste great.

Drawings, My oldest Sept. 2010

Loved these cute people my oldest daughter drew (3). But I don't keep artwork for very long so it's nice to have a little record her on the bloggity blog so she can see and remember it someday :)
