My brother-in-law bought his own apple cider press.
They pressed a bunch of apples and we enjoyed fresh cider.

Today, after church, family and friends met at my sister-in-law and brother-in-law's home in the country for a fun afternoon of fellowship, food and carving pumpkins.
Everyone brought a different kind of soup. I brought Italian Vegetable with Ham and there was Curry Vegetable, Chicken Wild Rice, Mexican Chicken Chowder, Sausage and Cabbage, French Onion and more! That was just the soups. In addition there were too many yummy treats and desserts to list. Let's just say we eat really well at these family get-togethers.
After we ate, everyone moved to the garage to begin the pumpkin carving. We had young and old alike creating all sorts of goofy, pretty, silly and scary pumpkins. It was a lot of fun to watch.
We're home now and getting ready for the week ahead, but we had to put Daniel's jack-o-lantern out on the front step and light a candle to put in it. Jack is out there, smiling and glowing. A fitting end to a wonderful day.
