The one with the big pile of leaves.

So, I am totally stealing an idea I saw on a blog somewhere. They had all their post title's like the names of past "Friends" episodes. I don't remember where I saw it, but I'm stealing it. Sorry if it was your idea. I tried to come up with something as creative, but let's face it, I wasn't blessed in the creative department when it comes to writing. Anyway, if it was your idea, thanks! And hopefully you'll be flattered. lol :) Now on to the real reason for this post (now that we have taken care of business).

We have been having a beautiful fall this year. A friend of mine mentioned that she thinks this fall has been the most beautiful (leaves-wise) since she has lived here, and I think I am going to agree! Or maybe it's because I'm getting older and seem to appreciate the beauty around me more and more? At any rate, the colors and weather have been amazing. This week, I have really tried to focus more on the kids and getting them outside to play, and my play with them! So, we did the traditional thing and grabbed a rake. Think the kids liked it? More like LOVED it!! I remember growing up loving to jump in the piles of leaves my mom and dad (or older sisters and brother) would rake up. As I got older, I dreaded being the one having to rake them, but now that I am REALLY old, I really enjoy it. It may have to do with the fact that we really only have one big tree too, as opposed to the thousands we had growing up (ok, I may be exaggerating a bit).

The "wind-up"

Savannah even enjoyed her bouncer from afar. She is such a sweet, happy baby!!

those pictures are just adorable! Your kiddos are precious. I'm so jealous because our trees are small and we just don't get the big pile of leaves. :(
Also - Thanks! I've been putting Friends-like titles on the blog since July, right after I got fed up with my titles being boring. :) I think the post before I started doing it was about how I never have any good title. :) :) :) Glad you thought it was fun enough to join in. And if it was someone else you are thinking of, then wow, it's a trend! :)
