The day before we make apple butter, the men peel the apples....
...the ladies cut them up.
Mom washes the apples bright and early in the morning.
Dad builds the fire and keeps it burning all day.
All day long we socialize and enjoy each other's company.
A few of the grandchildren play games.
The men enjoying Moms vegetable soup and lots of other goodies.
It it time to start adding the spices?
Mom adds the oil of cinnamon and oil of cloves.
"Brighton you are such a sweety"
