Canning Apples

We picked all of Grandma C.'s apples and last weekend we got them bottled. We made about 50 quarts of applesauce and 20 quarts of apple pie filling. Thank you Grandma!

Joshua is helping Dad turn the grinder.

Mattie was on "wash apples" duty.

A.J. liked running the apple peeler.

Hannah is big enough that she could quarter the apples.

Here's Joshua on the peeler.

Here's a little video clip of the boys helping Russ. (took the clip with the camera tipped and now I can't figure out how to rotate the video. I guess you'll just have to tip your head. Sorry)

Mom, that is so cute! I can't believe how grown up Ammon is. He is just like Joshua used to be, and Joshua like Mattie and... I'm so excited to see you soon.

Looks like Joshua is talking dad's ear off in one of those pictures [that's hard to imagine :)]
