Fall Down

In the chaos that has been my life recently, I completely missed Fall.

Sure, I'm living through it, but I got caught up in life, and one month of Fall passed before I realized it.

And now, the leaves are gone. Well, almost gone.

This year, we didn't have vibrant trees for long. Perhaps it was our unusually hot and dry summer or the fact that it recently rained for almost a week. That rain knocked down all the gorgeous leaves.

This sucks, because...

A) I love Fall.

B) I love Fall.

C) I love Fall.

Now, everything looks dull outside. Which reminds me of winter. And I really don't want to think about winter!

We may not have taken our Fall hike (other than a very wet one) or posed for Fall pictures, but we did get to enjoy the leaves via a very small leaf pile! Ah, my raking skills at their finest! The kids thoroughly enjoyed their leaf pile!

  8. thats what I thought too! where did all the pretty leaves go so soon? thats why I rushed out to take some pics on friday since I was afraid what little yellow leaves we had would be all burnt brown in a day. and I know the leaves stayed colored longer last year!

    anyway, love her dress. i wanted one like that for sofia from some catalog and now I forget which one. and dylan looks boy-ish running into those leaves.

    happy fall!
