It Just Isn't Fall Without Leaves

Although I am really ready to move into the Christmas season now, I still have a few fall things to record.  We had to wait a little longer than usual to accomplish our annual leaf pile jumping tradition.  Daddy had blown the leaves in the yard up into piles the week before Thanksgiving, but due to several days of rain and getting dark earlier, we waited until the weekend for a chance to play in the leaves and to allow Daddy a chance to mulch the leaves.  Instead of bagging the leaves for our city to pick up and take to the landfill, we like to mulch the leaves and use it to replenish around the trees and shrubs in our yard.  It keeps the yard looking neat while being a little better for the environment.  The boys had a great time playing in the leaves.  Evan loves seeing how high he can jump!

  2. I love leaves especially when you can play in them! We always have fun doing this. It looks like yall have too!

  3. These are the cutest pictures!!!! I can't wait to do this some day with my kids. Y'all are such a cute family! We mulch our leaves, too.

  4. You got some great pictures Sherry! I especially love the ones of the boys tackling Eddie!
