Autumn leaves

I raked a pile of jumping leaves in the front yard for Peanut. She didn't have a clue what to do with them. I showed her - right when the neighbours were pulling up into our shared driveway. These things always happen at the worst time. I think I probably blushed about the same colour as the leaves, so I''m hoping me galavanting around wasn't too obvious. Ahem. Anyway...

She soon got the jist of it.

And now, I can't get the kid back inside.

And it's FREEEEZING. Why do kids always seem to have broken thermostats, and be totally immune to cold?

In other news, Bug has discovered her feet. Big news, people, big news.  Have a lovely week!


  1. That looks great - as long as you're the only living creature in the leaf pile. Sometimes strange things get down your neck...

  2. Oh, and I was tickled to hear you enjoyed "The True Confessions Of Charlotte Doyle", too!

    Good book, wasn't it!

  4. Gorgeous girls, and looks like so much fun in those leaves! I wish we had some of those over this way!

  5. Thanks for all the comments over on my blog. Your kids are simply adorable! I think I'm going to have to try hard to get in the pictures more with my baby - you're absolutely right. She won't care if I look bad. I think I'm only in 3 pictures so far and I have hundreds with everyone else!

  6. What gorgeous little ones you have! Missing your blog, thanks for your kind comment on mine though. Glad to hear that someone used the contraction timer and that it was good!
