five things i love friday
1. homemade apple pie (here's a picture of the one I made last night - yummy!) see below for the recipe
2. watching the leaves fall off the trees in my backyard - it's like they are dancing!
3. the smell of a fire in my fireplace - i just love the fall!
4. the way Jesus constantly reminds me of His love and acceptance of me - just as I am! Thank you, Lord!
5. my cute husband - This morning, I woke up and found him reading to the boys on the floor of their room, all tucked in under a Thomas the Train comforter! How precious is that?!
Yummy Apple Pie
2 prepared 8 in pastry shells
6 tart apples, peeled, cored and sliced
