Safe and Sound

Yes! We are safe and sound! Though Mike and I spent yesterday crazily making ice, filling every spare container with water, and having a Walsh family "camp out" in the basement :). I guess I went a little overboard... What can I say- it was my first hurricane. The boys and I were out of town for Irene and Mike had to brave that one alone. We haven't been out today, but everything out our windows looks just fine. Now the big question that is on Owen and Ben's minds: how will this impact Halloween?!

The Best Day Ever

Last weekend we went to the open house at the Germantown Fire and police department. And for Owen and Ben, this was the best day ever!!! Owen has been a police officer for Halloween the last 2 years and just decided that he wants to be a police officer again this year. Ben pretty much lives in the fireman costume we have. After leaving the open house, both of the boys decided they would like to be on the SWAT team or bomb squad! Start praying for them now! And their mama, that my nerves could survive knowing my boys have such dangerous jobs! I'm hoping this is a phase! Going to things like this probably just encourages them, though...

Apple picking

Last weekend we went apple picking at an orchard near our house. We had so much fun! The weather was beautiful and we picked 34 (!) lbs of apples!!! So far we have made apple pancakes, apple crisp, apple sauce, apple and oat scones, and some sautéed cinnamon apples. Yum! If you have a favorite apple recipe, please feel free to share! We are always open to suggestions! I checked out the Pioneer Woman's website and found a couple of new recipes to try this week. I'll report back soon!
