Last weekend my mom and I met up in Columbus for the Country Living Fair. It was amazing! This is why I love Ohio. You can read more about the fair here http://ronanddianapike.blogspot.com/ (no point in rewriting it). After coming home I felt an urgent need to duplicate some fun crafts we saw there. First is my rake scarecrow. I wasn't able to find any straw so our corn stalks made due as arms. There was also a fun booth from http://paintideas.com/ they had a great craft for Eli. I know, Eli and spray paint, SCARY! But he loves his little bat. On Saturday we went to a great apple farm and came home with a bushel of apples for applesauce and apple pie filling. So 6 quarts of applesauce, 6 pints of redhot apple sauce and 14 quarts of apple pie filling (http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Canned-Apple-Pie-Filling/Detail.aspx) later my kitchen was a sticky mess! Where did summer go?
