Five on Friday

1.  The town of Paris comes out in droves to trick or treat.  Our church sets up a station in one of the "hot spots" and passes out bags of candy (with information about our church and Jesus), hot dogs and drinks.  We started serving around 5:15 p.m. Monday night.  By 7:30 p.m. we had distributed 800 hot dogs, 800 drinks and 730 bags of candy.  Whew!  What a night!  We had GREAT help from our church folks and as always had a great time!
2.  I bought a bushel of apples last week and I have had more fun!  I am almost through the box.  I've made a "healthy" apple cake, apple butter and applesauce.  I am still going to make apple peanut butter bars and baked apple donuts. 
For the recipe to the apple bars, click here.
3.This year the boys were Alvin and the Chipmunks for Halloween.  Clayton politely asked if next year they could dress as something people recognized instead of walking around in their dad's shirts.  I thought they were cute.  Fred agreed with Clayton.  Oh win some, you lose some!

On a side note...while Jack was getting dressed for Halloween he called me to tell me something had happened to his shirt.  It was too small.  Yes, it was too small.  He was wearing Andrew's shirt. Ha!

4.  Jack was using the restroom this week and Fred asked him to turn the fan on in the bathroom for obvious reasons. ;-)  Jack replied by saying, "That's okay dad.  It's not hot in here." 
5.  Andrew has really begun expressing himself.  If the boys do something that he doesn't like he throws his hands in the air and says, "Bad boys!"  We are working on this.
