Happy Fall! It's APPLE Time

Hey Fall Dolls!

This is my favorite time of year.

It's starting to get colder,
 the leaves are starting
 to change.

I love all the flavors,
 colors, and foods of FALL

It's apple season.

Our family goes to the
 apple orchard every year.

I love to make pies,
 apple sauce, apple crisps etc...

Apple Crisp
