Carmel Apples

The boys and I went over to my mom's house and dipped carmel apples yesterday. So delicious! Last year we tried using the carmel wrappers that you find in the grocery store. Those did not work so well...This year we just used melted carmel instead. Much better! Then we had a variety of toppings to go on them - M&Ms, marshmallows, oreo crumbs, graham cracker crumbs, sprinkles and chocolate chips. I'm definitely planning on doing it this way again.

I'm a little late getting this post up (and frankly have been quite lazy in posting lately). Halloween was this past Sunday and I took the boys trick or treating. It was J's first Halloween so it was a lot of fun. We met up with three of his cousins so I got to see everyone's cute costumes. J was a firefighter - he wouldn't leave his hat on most of the time. He was content to just sit in the stroller and watch the action around him. C had a good time too. He has been obsessed lately with motorcycles, bicycles and things like that, so he was a BMX racer. I'm beginning to think I should have dressed him as Mario; he kept going to the other boys he saw as Mario and talking to them and asking questions. All in all it was a good night!
