Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

People must like giving me their stuff. About a week or so ago my husbands uncle brought me a box of apples. Lucky me! I've made a few pies, and they turned out ok, but the greatest creation of mine had to be Apple Cinnamon Pancakes. They where the perfect morning treat . So lets get started.
First you will need to gather you ingredients.
Apples about 4-5 cut up
Brown sugar
Pancake mix
Second, we make the yummy apple topping.
This is very simple. Use the raspberry bliss recipe but substitute apples for raspberries ( of course), brown sugar in place of white sugar and add a few shakes of cinnamon. You need to let it simmer until the apples are soft but not mushy. If the skin of the apple looks kinda shriveled up then you cooked it too long. Set the apples aside.
Next, prepare pancakes according to the instructions and add a couple shakes of cinnamon to the mixture.

Last, pour apples over the pancakes along with your favorite syrup and maybe some whipped cream and enjoy!

Fat Quarter Skirt

My obsession for all things purple, led me to the purchase of of 2 fat quarters, for a buck each at Wal-Mart. Once I was home I then realized, what the heck are you going to do with 2 purple fat quarters. That then led to the creation of the fat quarter skirt and matching top.
I apologize for the poor quality in the pictures. I am, how ever working on a tute for the fat quarter skirt and it will be up soon.

Our first Snow

I woke up Monday morning to a light blanket of snow covering my backyard. I cant believe this, its only October.

A Classic that never gets Old

I don't even need to give instructions on this one. I think everyone at some point in their life has made stamp art with either apples or potatoes. You can even use oranges, broccoli and corn on the cob . Its an easy art project that kiddos of all ages love.

Fall Fun

Fall is here. The kindos and I have enjoyed spending long mornings and afternoons outside. There's leafs and sticks that have blown off the trees and how cute are munchkins when they're all bundled up. I love it. The pumpkin loves her new jacket too. I saw the awsome jacket that Zooey Daschanel wore in Yes Man and I knew that the pumpkin would have one too. I think that I'll try to make a matching one for myself. I used Vegbee's Fair weather Jacket pattern but ditched the front belt. I think that it turned out great. The best part is that it cost me less than 10 bucks to make. I got 2 yards of navy blue linen for the shell at $ 1.97 per yard and the flannel lining was $1.98 a yard for 2 yards. YEA!

The inspiration for the jacket.

My version made for a 2 year old.
