Pectin Free Crab Apple Jelly

The two oldest are back in school-full day. Can I just tell you that half day kindergarten kind of rocks your world? We survived and had a great summer. My little baby finally has some chubs-apparently failure to thrive is a real thing and it is scary. Nursing Pumping and feeding take up most of my time now-she's almost ready for solids-yippy!
My hubby's aunt called us a few weeks ago to see if we wanted to come pick some crab apples. She said she had a recipe for some easy crab apple jelly. I've never heard of it, but was intrigued.
 It is a time consuming and amazing process. The children were also able to step right in and help.
The smells in my kitchen were divine too.
This recipe also uses less sugar than your typical jam.
Just in case anyone has some crab apples they need to use, here is the recipe:


Early Arrival

My sweet pea arrived a few weeks early. I was kind of expecting her to arrive early. I had another c-section, and things went much better this time around. 
Our family is complete now, and we are enjoying this new little addition very much.


Night Owl Invite

My oldest is turning 8 this year! We are marveling at how she is starting to become a young woman-yet still be so silly.
In our family we only do a huge "friends" birthday party every 4 years. Her birthday isn't until the end of March-but... 12 of the 20 kids in her school class have birthdays in March, I'm probably going to have this baby in the next 3-4 weeks, and her birthday will be in the middle of spring break.  All good reasons to bump up the party a few weeks.
We also don't do sleepovers in our family. I saw an idea to have a night owl party-where the guests get all the fun of a sleepover, but go home to sleep at their house.
Here's the invite I made. I used word to make the owl and branch.
The Front:
I had them printed through Costco. They had an option for a double sided card-stock card with envelopes.
