Thomas and Daddy after picking some apples

the result of Veronica's hard work

Well, in between horrible nights of sleep thanks to neighbors who can’t grasp the concept of being quiet, we got out yesterday morning and did some apple picking.

Thanks to a quirk of fate, Veronica captured a very short video of Thomas picking an apple (here).  When we got home, she decided to get ambitious and reduced much of the results into applesauce.  She then headed out and got some mason jars and actually canned the results.  So, we have 10 jars of homemade apple sauce (which came out very nice and made the apartment smell like apples all afternoon), an apple crisp that already has almost nothing left to it and still some apples left over.  So, a nice day all around.

Now if we could just get some sleep.
