My Applesauce Canning Helper(s)

 Todd bought A LOT of apples, so I decided to can about half of them.  We made applesauce out of the apples.  Alex was a great helper (and who knows how many times he stole a lick.)  The sister missionaries came over to help as well.  They were a big help.  By myself this task would have taken all day, but with everyone's help, we got all the cutting, steaming, and running through the food mill done in about four hours.  The processing took a little longer, but that's the easy part once you get all the prep done.

This is Sister Gordon and Sister Humbert. This was the last day for them in our ward as they were being transferred and for now we have no more sister missionaries for our ward until the number of sisters for the mission rises.  They were lots of fun to work with! They will be missed!

The Wiz

Kate auditioned for the school play this year.  The play is called "The Wiz" which is a spin off of the Wizard of Oz in the context of the African America Culture.

So Kate got the understudy part of Dorothy and will play a munchkin, unless the lead Dorothy really does "break a leg".  She is happy with her parts and we are excited to see how everything goes.
