Well, this post really doesn't have anything to do with Ella...or Down syndrome. Instead it's all about the 40lbs of apples we got at the farm last weekend. Ella did help us pick out apples, so that counts right?
Oh and she LOVES applesauce.
The beginings of the apple butter....it cooked for 48 hours in the crockpot, adding more apples and spices every 10 hours.
On Friday Hunter and I made Chris an apple pie from scratch for his birthday.
It was pretty tasty.
Peels peels peels. My kitchen may never be the same...or not sticky.
We got 21 half pints of apple butter out of that batch...we kept one out for ourselves so it's in the fridge.
Sure hope it's good, frankly I've smelled it for so long now that it has lost it's appeal : ) Oh hey wait, that towel is blue and yellow....Down syndrome colors. There you go, I'm advocating : )
I am a mother to two incredible children. Hunter is 8 years old and Ella Grace is 6 years old. My children are my life, my true joy. My life was turned upside down when my daughter was born and surprised us all by having Down syndrome. Since her birth I have come from sorrow and a sense of loss to greater happiness than I ever imagined and I owe it all to The Amazing Ella Grace! Contact me anytime by email email@example.com
My face may be different,but my feelings the same.I laugh and I cryand take pride in my gains.I was sent here among you to teach and to loveas God in the heavenslooks down from above.To Him I'm no different,His love knows no bounds;It's those here among you, in cities and townsthat judge me by standardsthat man has imparted,but this family I've choosenwill help me get started.For I'm one of the children,so special so few,that came here to learnthe same lessons as you.That love is acceptance, it must come from the heart;we all have the same purpose,though not the same start.The Lord gave me lifeto live and embrace,and I'll do it as you do,but at my own pace.-Unknown
