Today is also the birthday of Johnny Appleseed.
We will most like celebrate it with a tea and some
"apple sauce muffins" in the afternoon.
The weather is supposed to be miserable here,
and we have much to do to get ready for Princess's
"Autumn Birthday Festival" this Sunday.
I was hoping to get in an apple craft to celebrate today, but we were too busy
cleaning out my closet..looking for the party favors I had ready in advance.
Last year we had a lot of fun making "apple stamps" and printing cards and wrapping paper
with them. Princess's Great Aunt Grace L-O-V-E-S apples, so we make many drawings of them for her.
We will read a few books... Johnny Appleseed by Reeve Lindbergh
and our favorite is by Steven Kellogg.
I think he's an interesting character well worth learning about.
Happy Fall Y'all!
