Applesauce, Hearts and Butterflies

I had every intention of sleeping in this morning, like really sleeping in, but of course the family and the dog had other ideas. The two boys and Dad decided to take off for breakfast to Tim Horton's (apparently this is what they do when I am not up to make breakfast) and as soon as they left the house the dog decided to bark, a horrific don't leave me whining bark. Try as I did to sleep through it, not possible.

Ok so early this morning instead of sleeping I was attempting my first shot at homemade applesauce. Brendan loves the store bought variety and after realizing that I wasn't supplying him with a healthy snack (high fructose corn syrup) I decided this would be a project he and I would share. He was having such a good time putting everything in the pot and then mashing I thought we had a winner, as it turns out I think he will eat it but I believe it may be the high fructose corn syrup he really liked ;) Time will tell as I made a triple batch.
Here is the link to the recipe I used:

So after the applesauce experiment, many loads of laundry and a little bit of chilling in between I figured I had a perfect time while the kids played games and dh watched football to get some crafting in.
Here are my latest creations to be added to the shop:

Tomorrow I am hoping to get some dinosaur toppers done, they are next on the list.

Wishing everyone a happy Monday,
