1st leaf pile of the season!!

Yesterday we raked up our first leaf pile!! It was pretty small, but still a ton of fun for the kids!! Our yard manages to collect leaves from everyone on our street! In a few days, the pile will probably grow to about 10 times the size it was yesterday! Right now it is mostly leaves from our magnolia tree, they don't get real pretty like the oaks that line the street.






Can you guess what prompted this reaction?


They both wanted to rake at the same time, Macy won the rake getting contest and Jack was not happy! Needless to say, neither of them raked! LOL

The last pic will hopefully be the subject of my scrapping tonight!!

Hey, if you have a minute, go check out the ILove2Create blog. Melynda uploaded some of the DT projects for the October kit!! The latest post contains some of my projects with Friendly Plastic!!

Have a great weekend!! I'll try and share pics from my cousin's wedding tomorrow!!

Love the pictures- we love leaf raking and jumping, too. We usually go to my parents' house to help them and they have tons of leaves.

Can't wait to see what you do with the pictures-love your blog and your work :)

Looks like so much fun, the kids are having a blast. Can I borrow some of your leaves?

I am SO jealous of people who have an actual fall with the leaves and everything!!!!!! (although not jealous about having to rake leaves LOL) living in FL we have summer and winter...not really much of a fall *sigh* oh well..i can live vicariously through your blog LOL

These are such great photo's. What a fun time for picture taking! I'm sure you will create a beautiful LO with them.

These are going to be great photos to scrap that is for sure. I just love the one with Jack, it almost looks like he is begging, pleading for that rake. I have to say .. none of my kids would've ever done that! They would've just walked the other way and say its all yours! He'll learn. lol
I just visited I love to Create! Rachael I just love that mini-album and the Girls Rock one with the switch plates! Where can I get that Friendly Plastic???
Ok.. hope you have a great Sunday!

how fun!!! I hate to rake them though!

stacy said...

It is awesome that the kids get so many nice days left to jump in the leaves. Hopefully this weather will continue for a while.

It sounds like you need another rake. If the kids want to rake, let them... save your back. LOL
