It's fall...and one of my favorite fall foods is caramel apples.
Now, Randy & I are pretty paranoid parents. We both work full time, and quite frankly, we have a hard time keeping up with work, the kids, and general household items - let alone take on some monumental task...like making caramel apples.
Never fear...that's where our neighbors come into play. On Saturday evening, they brought over homemade caramel apples for the kids. And, not just the kind where you buy the pre-made caramel in flat round disk and then wrap it around the apple. The real stuff where you heat up the carmel and then dip the apple into it.
Here are some pictures of the kids enjoying their treats.
Tanner, obviously very excited by the apples:

But then deciding, that really, isn't the point of all this just the caramel?
Now, the mistake that we made was giving them the carmel apples after supper. The sugar in these here apples kept the kids bouncing off the walls until after 9 p.m. (their bedtime is around 7 p.m.).
Also notice the new haircuts in these pictures...no more hippie babies.
