The Apple of my Pie- and the Recipe..

If you dont have a grandparent to spend time with- borrow one! Got 20 minutes? Come laugh with my Grandma and I, as she shows us how to make her old timey Apple Pie!

Hopefully you have a grandparent who is alive and well. See, all my grandparents passed away a long time ago, but my hubby's Grandma is still just as spry as ever! I try to spend time with her as often as i can, and we always have a great time! I can only hope to be as amazing as her when i turn 90! Yes folks, the lady in my Old Timey Apple Pie Recipe video is 90 years young, she was 89 when we did the video, and she gets more interesting every single year!

Now, in the videos we have a great conversation about Apples, Apple trees and she shows us exactly how she makes the pie- and gives us her recipe... and we laugh alot!

If you dont have a Grandparent to do something with- find one- or even borrow one! Take one big ole day out of your OH SO busy life, to sit together, or even work together. They will teach you something- I promise! They always have excellent sories of "back in the days of old". Im so amazed, humbled and most of all, inspired- every time i spend time with her.. She is a library of knowledge and a fountain of fun. I might not have my own Grandparents any longer, but feel extremely lucky to call this magnificent lady Bonnie Linne, my Grandma!

She always has something interesting going on at her house, and it's usually cooking or entertaining guests, but most of the time she is doing both!

So grab a pen and a piece of paper- and come laugh with me and Grandma. There are 3 videos in the series. Maybe you have 20 minutes for laughs?  You will enjoy this- We had such a great time! ~Melissa
