Hi everyone! Yesterday I had my 4 yr. old grandson Caleb and we baked cupcakes! He tried frosting them but to my surprise didn't like it! So he just did the decorating but wow, did I have to watch that! I think the whole container would have been on the 1st cupcake, lol!
We have him every Tuesday and he's such a joy! Thought I'd show ya a couple of pics!
I love Wednesday's, it's $1.00 taco night at "Fairways" and we go every Wednesday night, yum!!! Have a wonderful week! candice♥

Hi everyone! Here's some picture from our recent visit to Mackinaw City, Michigan!
Seemed every time we turned around there was a fudge shop, lol! We had a wonderful time with friends and went over to the Island. I'll post pics of the Island tomorrow!
I really have a lot to blog about so I just need to get better with this! I think I need to post some pics of my grandchildren. Have a wonderful week and hopefully I'll be back in a couple of days!

Today we went to a huge event in a small town about 1/2 hour away from our home. It was a beautiful sunny day but the air was crisp and cool! About 53 degrees! What ever happened to our "Indian Summer"? I think we missed it recently when we were in Georgia. Right now as I'm typing this our late news is on and he's talking snow flakes tomorrow, yikes!
So this big event we went to is called the "AppleButter Fest" and it's in GrandRapids, Ohio. A whole lotta people turn out for this every year! I'll post picture's of it tomorrow because what I really want to post is about my good friend Karen's Shop which is right in the town where this is held! It's called Cottage On The River and it's just the cutest shop, I love it. There's a river that runs behind it with a gorgeous view! My friend and her daughter Erika own and run the shop. They also carry my jewelry.
So right now I'm going to post pictures of their beautiful shop and hope you enjoy! Of coarse I have to post a picture of Karen and Erika!
And I can't wait till it's decorated for Christmas, it's the most gorgeous place to be! I'll be sure and get pictures to post when they have their Christmas Open House :) One year I even helped decorate,hmmm, maybe they need help again!

Hot out of the oven and on the menu today, Apple Pie! The steam was still rising when I took these pictures, lol!
I'm having my daughter, my son-in-law and 2 grandchildren for dinner today and on the menu is Lasagna, Olive Garden Bread Sticks and Apple Pie! Yum! We were recently in Georgia and missed both my daughter and son in laws birthdays :( So I'm making up for it!
Here's my recipe for Old Fashion Apple Pie!
1 cup sugar, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 4 tablespoons flour and a dash of salt.
6 cups apples ( I use equal of Granny Smith, McIntosh and Jonathon apples)
2 T butter
Pillsbury Pie Crust ( I use to always make my crust from scratch, but Pillsbury has made it too easy)
Combine sugar,cinnamon, flour and salt. Add this to your sliced apples and toss lightly. Pour into pie plate and dot with butter. Make slits on top of crust.
Bake at 425 for 40-50 minutes. (I love mixing these 3 kinds of apples together)
Hope you're all having a wonderful Fall Sunday!
