Apple Pie

For Thanksgiving, Evan and I made two apple pies this year. Evan made it so much easier! (When can you say that about a 3 year old :) ?) He pealed 16 apples almost completely by himself using the apple pealer/slicer/corer. He was even loading the apples on himself and taking them off when they were sliced. It was a great way to get ready for Thanksgiving and spend some fun time with E.


So, it's been a long time since we last posted - but I wanted to share a cute story about Evan before I forget it. About a month ago, I was shopping with my mom and Evan. My mom asked if I'd like some gum, and Evan said, "I'm 3 and big now, I'd like some gum." So, Nani gave Evan a half a piece of gum with the instructions only to chew it, not to swallow. Evan actually did great with the gum, following his instructions. About 5 minutes into chewing, he asked, "Is it okay if I swallow the juice?" which we both cracked up at. We later were in the maternity department and there was a picture of a pregnant woman on the wall. Evan told us, "She must have ate a lot of gum!" He continued to chew the gum for another hour or so and now gum is one of his favorite treats.
