Allison had an incredible 3rd birthday party this morning with lots of friends and special guest Princess Rapunzel. The kids played games with her, got princess treasures and makeovers. Each child then got to take a special picture with the process before we had pizza and cupcakes. There are so many special pictures but here are just a couple.

This is Allison right before going to bed tonight. This is the last picture of her being 2. Tomorrow morning she will wake up and be 3. I'm so proud of how well she is growing up - articulate, polite and starting to say her prayers on her own. But part of me wants to keep her my cuddle bug forever. Today she fell asleep curled up next to me and took a long nap. I know days like this are numbered and it just about kills me.

Take a look at this morning's project. I've been wanting to trying canning my own pie filling since seeing a few different recipes on Pinterest and finally made a couple test batches. Cathy and I made apple and peach and I can't wait to try them in pies next week.
If the pies turn out well these will definitely be holiday gifts, and my next batch will be in bulk. I love peach pie but rarely make it because I hate peeling peaches. However I could manage doing a whole bunch in one day if it makes me a years worth of pie filling. This pie filling would also make great cobbler, pancake topping or ice cream topping.
