I Love Autumn!

What better way to start the season then to have a doughnut and cider party! :D Remember all those apples I canned last week? Well there were still plenty of apples left over, so a family in our church graciously had everyone over for a get together. They made fresh doughnuts and cider. Here is a picture of the ladies getting the doughnuts made.
Here are the doughnuts being fried up...it smelled heavenly in that kitchen. ;o)
And then about half of the doughnuts after they had been glazed. They were delicious!
While I was inside near the doughnuts ;o) Beloved was outside helping with the cider. We had 2 presses and I think almost everyone helped out.
We even had popcorn popped over a fire. So much food and great fellowship. It was a wonderful evening.
Oh, and after everyone had some doughnuts, cider and popcorn most of us went for a ride on a hay wagon. The children, and adults, had a lot of fun. Although we should have made a stop at Marci's house to serenade Josh before they left for the wedding. ;o) But we missed our chance...oh well...I know where he is going to live. ;) Oh...and here is a short video of the children helping with the cider.

It sure looks like you had fun. I love the donuts they make so it is probably a good thing I was not there.

I hope you and Brittany become good friends. You will be good for each other and you are both awful nice!!!
