And for the best photo of the night.
|Notice the three cute toddlers.|
|But look closer at this crazy face!|
|Seriously, what kind of expression is this?|
|Bobbing for apples is actually everyone's favorite.|

This last Friday we had our annual Apple Party. We had a table full of candy, nuts, and bacon toppings, as well as melted caramel and chocolates. We had sparkling apple cider, spiced cider, hot cider, and our favorite cider shakes (spiced cider + icecream). We also had a couple apple cakes, bobbing for apples, donuts on a string, and the highlight: apple flavored cotton candy. I, sadly, did not get a single caramel apple. But I was having too much fun visiting with everyone. And we have probably 20lbs of apples left over so we'll be appling like crazy over here. I've already made 6 jars of applesauce and our annual post apple party apple cider donuts. I love hosting parties that are silly but delicious and packing my house full of friends. Matt was having stress dreams about me inviting too many people and they wouldn't all fit in our house so they left without getting any food. Luckily for him only about half of our invites were attendees so we had plenty for everyone. Next year though, I'll aim for 100%. So mark your calendars now!
