Leaves and Pumpkins
Fall is my favorite time of year. Maybe because it is when I got married or maybe because I just love seeing the trees change colors. And I love when you get to start wearing those warm sweaters on cold nights. Unfortunately the neighborhood we live in does not have any mature trees, so we don't get a ton of leaves falling. Thus, no big leave piles like when we were kids that we could run and jump in. We put in last fall a beautiful tree that gets bright red leaves in the fall. I think it is gorgeous! So, I went and raked them up on Sunday so the kids could have a little fall fun. Meg is getting over being sick and she really needed some fresh air, so even she got to have some fun!
It was such a beautiful day outside that the kids got to carve pumpkins outside. Thanks to the Voster's for the pumpkins. The kids had a ball carving them and actually got to decide how they looked (except Ally). They turned out pretty good! Downside is that we may have some pumpkins growing in our lawn next year. HAHA!
