Lacy Screen and Apple Sticks

Hello!  This weekend I got to spend most of the day with just my boys.  I'd love to share with you a lacy screen that the boys and I made for the kitchen window this weekend.  The old screen was full of holes and I'd seen this idea and thought it was worth a try.  We salvaged some small wood from the dump and the lace is from a valance we found at the free store.  A few nails and staples later it was ready to pop into the window.  The lace helped it fit snuggly so it won't blow out.   Something pretty to see as we wash the dishes.

Then we decided to make something new for snack time.  Apple pie sticks.   They were so yummy and easy.  We just made some applesauce (I added brown sugar this time where I usually don't.) then layered it between pie dough.  We used the boys play dough cutter.  Yes, I washed it first.   Once baked and cooled we dipped them in whipped cream. Yum!  Sorry we didn't get an after it was cooked pic.  But they did cook up nicely and didn't spill out the applesauce all over the place.

Thanks for dropping by!  Praying you have a beautiful day!
