An Apple a Day...

We came home from the apple orchard with well over 100 apples. That's a whole lot of apples to eat...even for this hungry brood! So if the old saying is true, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away!" well... then we should be set for a good L-O-N-G while! 
Most of the apples we'll just enjoy on their own, but it's also been fun finding new apple recipes to try out. 
Yesterday the littles and I got busy in the kitchen and had ourselves an apple kind-of day.
We tried out a new recipe that I had found for Apple Cinnamon Rolls. We made them ahead on Friday so we could enjoy them on Saturday morning for breakfast.
Oh.my.sweet.goodness...they were absolutely DELICIOUS!!!!! If you have any apples on hand, I highly recommend this recipe!!
 
 Not only did we bake the cinnamon rolls, but we also made chocolate dipped apples as well. The kids had so much fun dipping the apples and then covering them in sprinkles. 
Needless to say, there was a whole lot a dippin', a whole lot a sprinklin', and a whole lot a lickin'!!
  Oh, they weren't very pretty, but the were soooo YUMMY!!!!
Most of our apples were for the eating, but we also had fun doing a little crafting with them as well.  
 How cute are these "apple basket" hand-prints?!?!
 And how could we call it an "apple day" with out a little apple stamping too!
What a FUN and also YUMMY Friday;)

The Apple Tree
Away up high
In an apple tree
Two red apples
Smiled at me
I shook that tree
As hard as I could
Down came those apples
And mmm were they good!
