Oh, the leaves!!

Here is a picture of our home right now. We have a large Maple tree right in the front yard, and each fall it presents us with a blanket of leaves. This year, even the porch and steps were covered! This photo was taken right after Jeff blew off all the leaves.
I love our Maple tree. There are big, strong branches to hold our tree swings, and it is fun. You can tell what I'll be doing all weekend....yep, raking leaves! This isn't the only tree in our yard either, there are even larger trees, with MANY more leaves. The girls are just waiting for the big piles of crunchy leaves to jump into...let's hope it's a dry weekend.

Lilyann is enjoying the playset now that she is big enough to swing and climb and slide. See her sweet, sweet smile? Wishing you all a beautiful Autumn weekend!

I have reared adoptive children. One of the most hurtful things ever said to me is that I could never love an adoptive child as much as my own flesh and blood. How would that person know.

Leaves! Piles of leaves! That is our favorite part of fall.... Well, one of our favorites!

Wow how beautiful, like gold falling from the trees! Maybe money really does grow on trees?

I miss leaves. I am sure raking them is not fun.
