The past couple of months have been a bit crazy and as a result I have been lax about posting. Between the holidays, lots of travel, and a funeral this has been at the bottom of my to-do list. Before I get into all of that I thought I would share a couple of photos that I took before the snow hit.
Fall has always been my favorite season. In Saint George it was the best time of year. Summer heat (in my personal opinion) was always miserable. I was NOT made for months of triple degrees. And I do like winter, but only if snow comes with it and, in Saint George, that was rare. As to spring - no thank you. I am sure it all ties back to the horses, but my memories of spring come with flies galore and with the horses shedding there is hair everywhere. So, back to the point - I LOVE FALL!!!!
These were taken early November. We had fun raking the leaves in our front yard. I have decided that it is okay for an adult to act like a child (i.e. throwing leaves, jumping in them, playing ring-around-the-rosies, etc.) as long as other children are around. We did all of these things out in our front yard and it was perfectly acceptable. In fact everyone just laughed and talked to my children encouraging them in the fun. However, I am wondering how they would have reacted if I would have been by myself - probably a bid differently! ;)
We love leaves!
They are fun to sit in.
They are fun to throw at people.
They are fun to lay in.
Did you know that they are also fun to chew on? Well, Trey thinks so.
He was constantly putting the stems in his mouth.
And, finally, of course they are fun to jump in. In this video, Nyah is counting 1, 2, 3, over and over, jumping up and down. It doesn't have sound, but you will see that she jumps in, jumps up, and starts counting all over again. I ended up running out of memory right before she jumps the second time, but you get the idea.
She still loves him. But he still avoids her kisses. Although I know he loves her too, because he is always pouncing on her, laying on her, climbing on her . . . and every once in a while he gives her kisses too.
Nyah was singing the whole time. My little girl loves to sing and she just randomly bursts into song.
I LOVE IT!
I LOVE IT!
