Turning a New Leaf

Things are falling...temperatures...expectations of warm weather...and LEAVES. It is happening all around us.
Liam and Ada came for a visit with their Mama. It was a busy day.

Liam had his work cut out moving all those leaves. It took a lot of hard work and a lot of hard miles on that Tonka. All those leaves were in the wrong place! He had to rearrange everything!

Some went here.....

In fact a LOT went on Uncle Josh.

He also had the big job of introducing Ada to all this fun. She was such a good sport. Even when he tipped over and dumped her face down in all those crackly, scratchy leaves. Her lip came way out, but she didn't cry at the indignity of it all. What a trooper!

It was a welcome break for me. I've been buried in paperwork for the past week. I think I have the first giamungous pile ready to go to the accountant tomorrow. Then I start on the next job...even bigger. I am trying to shed my habits of procrastinating on things I don't like to do. (It's a long hard road. I'd much rather continue in my fantasy world that Procrastinators are the leaders of tomorrow!)

Out of the paper piles into the fun. This Grandma is enjoying following their lead!

Liam and Ada look so similar in the last picture of them. We had to rake the leaves the other day and it was difficult for Liam to understand you can't ALWAYS jump in the leaves. Sometimes they need to go in the bags and stay in the bags!

Procrastination.....if all the world would just be like us, it wouldn't matter.

Haven't talked in too long! Jim's home till the 21st.

Wow, I've been so "buried" around here I haven't even had a chance to comment, let alone post. Thanks everyone for stopping by. And I'm tagged! I've got a lot of catch up to do! Soon...I promise!

Hello there! I have so many found memories from childhood of being around my father as he raked the leaves and jumping in the piles. And my mom took photos of us, too. You'll treasure these for a long while! Kudos to you for making and capturing memories! :-)
