Ahhhhh, leaves.


Rob raked the hugest pile of leaves I've ever seen...
... while Connor was napping.
As soon as Connor got up from nap...
...he immediately went to the patio doors in search of Daddy...
...and instead found "THE MOUNTAIN of LEAVES"...
... his eyes got big, his heart (I'm sure it did, wouldn't yours?) started to pound in anticipation...
and he said, almost reverently...
... "Is THAT for me?!?!"
It's great to be reminded of the simple joys in life...
...like a freshly-raked, mountain of leaves to jump in...
...which I secretly saw Rob jumping into, hand-in-hand with Connor after I had shut my camera off (of course). : )

Cute little video clip of Connor jumping into the leaves.

    That brings back some good memories. Connor looks like he's having a blast! What a special day for him. The birthday party looked like a lot of fun too. Wonderful photos all around. Miss you all lots. Enjoy the Fall before the snow - bbrrrr. Love NeeNee

  1. Hi Nee Nee!

    Can you believe it was snowing just a little while ago? I'm at work and afraid to look outside... I'm picturing a "mountain of snow" rather than a "mountain of leaves"! : )

    Love the new layout!!

  1. Ha Ha Kel, I remember Kel roping us in for the raking as well, hee hee! And the picture's w/ "Mr. X"...

    * GROANS * lol, what'cha going to do, such is life, right?

    & Danna,

    Cute about Ry wanting to do it too! Why do we live so far apart again??!?!?!? WHY WHY WHY WHY?!?! In my mind I can see so clearly our little freaks all playing together... there were definitely enough leaves here for all of our troops to get lost in! : )

    Glad you like the layout! : )

  1. You are sweet Beth! (Again, I just realized you commented. I can't seem to figure out why I am not receiving email alerts anymore).
