~20~ (and some)

Above many other things, Fall means LEAVES!!!! And lots of them, unless you live in a tree-less city, I guess. Around here, though, there are leaves in the grass, in the street, falling and flowing over your car as you drive, in the water, in the drains, in your gutters, anyplace you can imagine, there will most likely be leaves there. And what do you do with leaves?

You run through them (especially when your friends are trying to put them all in a pile, that little stinker)...

you jump in them...

you grab the biggest handfuls of them that you possibly can...


and then you throw them up in the air!!

Oh, the fun that can be had with just a small pile of leaves. Our walk got cut short yesterday because we came up on a space with a bunch of leaves, and we just couldn't leave them unhandled. We left with itchy, scratchy, crunched up leaves all over us, carrying home the earthy smell of fall. We will miss this when the snow comes.

Oh, how we will miss it... The smell, the color, the light, the warmth. I think that's why I make soup WAY too much this time of year. I'm trying to warm things up as much as possible, not willing to let the cold set in. And I know it's why I can't get enough photos of leaves this fall. I was thinking maybe of making huge prints and pasting them to the ceiling...

Hi, mommie blogs! Thanks for leaving a comment. Fall is my favorite time of the year as well, and as you can see, I love to capture it on camera. You are welcome to keep visiting. I have 10more "days of Fall" to go! Your little guy is adorable, by the way=)

Les, maybe try making really huge prints and pasting them to the windows! And soup, yes, lots of soup (much to the dismay of our husbands).

They look like they are having such a ball! One of our yards had 60-some-odd-plus trees--and the kids absolutely adored this time of year with plenty of leaf piles to jump into!

So glad to 'meet' you over at my place! I'm enjoying perusing yours!
Blessings!

Hey octamom! We don't really have any trees right in our yard, but a yard just down from us has several big maples that just shower down leaves constantly. We'll just have to borrow some of hers=)

Thank you, Steph! We had a blast watching them play and trying to catch their joy on camera. Oh, to have even half of their energy and excitement for life!
