Cider Makin'

 
Cider01W

Every year we go to the pumpkin patch, every year we buy their cider, and every year we cry when the last drop has been drunk.

So this year, we thought we'd buy our own apples, and do the cider makin' ourselves.  Even more fun?  Invite others over to share in the fun, and the work, {and the cost!}, and the deliciousness!!
So that is what we did, folks.

 We took a lot of apples, did a lot of slicing, a lot of crushing, and made a lot of cider!

 And I'm thinking we're going to have to do this again soon, because there were an awful lot of apples left over ;)

 I'm seeing some apple pie in our near future.

And the little ones?  They're not feeling so great :(  There has been some sort of illness circulating the house for the last month, but Kam has gotten a lot worse over the last few days.  We may have to make a trip to the doctor soon.

Taylor is cutting four molars at once, sigh.  And her new trick?  I'll let you see for yourself:

LOL at her picking her nose!

I'm sorry the kids have been sick. I hate that part of fall/winter. I hope they all feel better soon.

The apple cider sounds so yummy!

LOL! One of my favorite pictures of Skylar is BOTH fingers in her nose at the same time!! :)
Such a bummer that you have some sick kiddos. Praying it exits quickly!!
Your cider looks awesome! What in the world is that beautiful wooden contraption?

So do you have your own cider making barrel? We love apple cider here, it's just such a cozy drink.
