Apple Party!

I've been meaning to blog about this for ages, but haven't had the time until now. Thank goodness for Thanksgiving! Anyway, at the beginning of the semester, we threw the second annual Apple Party. Some of you may be asking, "What in the heck is an Apple Party?" Well, I'll tell you; it is a party including everything apple: carmel apples, apple slices, apple cider, apple pie, apple juice, sparkling cider, apple fritters, apple cobbler, apple crumble, bobbing for apples, carving apples, apple juggling, apple stories... you name it, it's in an Apple Party. If it's true what they say that an apple a day keeps the doctor away, we have an anti-doctor radius that encompasses the entire neighborhood for about a year!
Here's some nice...ok, not-so-nice, pictures of bobbing:
All the apple goods!
We had some people carve apples.
Everybody got into groups and wrote stories about apples - apple wars, nonfiction Newton apples, apple poems, apple mutations, apple computers - you name it, there was a story about it. Then we had apple storytime!

All in all, it was a great party and now you that know, you can go have your own apple party next fall! Happy Appling!

The Battle of Entropy

Upstairs, two bedrooms face off! Door on the right: "Warning: This room is FREAKISHLY clean. Try to contain yourself." Door on the left: "Warning: This room is a WRECK. Brace yourself."
