Making all the apple stuff reminded me how much I love to bake. I was trying to think of something to do with what I had in the house, so I made these.

I got the recipe here I didn't have any almond extract, so I chopped up some Emerald cocoa powdered almonds and mixed that in. For the icing I melted some bittersweet chocolate added some powdered sugar and water. They flattened out a bit but are super yummy!

Apple Picking

On Saturday we went apple picking with our best friends and their daughter. I had such a nice time. It was something different to do, and a way to get some fresh air. After we were done, we went to my Mom's house to make some mini apple pies and an apple crisp with my sisters. That night Avery started trying to crawl and now she is all over the place! She is pretty quick so needless to say I have pillows everywhere lol.

She also started sitting up on her own. I went to get her out of her crib when she woke up yesterday and she was sitting in the middle smiling at me :) I can't believe how big she is getting or how fast.
