First Fall Weekend in Dahlonega

Carrie picked up an antique brass bed that Joan (Carrie's mom) bought from a family in Woodstock, and we took it up to Carrie's parents. It is really neat and is going to look great in their new house. The bed is on wheels, and has a very pretty patina. Joan prepared a spaghetti dinner and Cooper enjoyed his share of this yummy meal. For dessert, she made the most yummy baked apples. I'm going to include the recipe below. They make a delicious, healthier dessert and they are perfect for fall. We played with Cooper outside on the grass and had a "photo shoot". Cooper had a great time. We were able to get alot of great pictures, so I'll put them on Cooper's blog. Also Joan is sewing bibs! They are so adorable. I'll post a link to her Etsy shop when she opens it as I am certain you will really like them. I am so happy because my mom is crocheting and Joan is sewing and I'm making jewelry I just love it! Joan is making bibs that have a "paci pocket"on the front to hold a pacifier! Stay tuned for more. My mom bought the most gorgeous yarn from Etsy that is hand dyed with Marigolds. The yarn is the most delicious shade of yellow. It looks like a ball of sunshine. I can't wait to see what she makes out of it.

Baked Apples

Core 4 Cameo apples and then cut them in half.
Sprinkle with brown sugar and apple pie spice (or allspice).
Add 1/4 cup of chopped pecans.
Bake at 350 for 1 hour.
Serve with vanilla yogurt (or ice cream)

It's so exciting that you're getting both your moms to start etsy!! I love creating, it's a wonderful outlet and it's great to see the results in the end. :)

Now I will have to try Joan's baked apple recipe. I'm a sucker for anything baked apple.
