Fall Experiences: LEAVES

Tuesday, November 3, 2009


The tree in our front yard, produces the most amazing bright, yellow leaves. When the sun shines through its branches, the leaves practically glow in the light. It's gorgeous to look at!

This tree is quite generous with its leaf production. So when the leaves fall, the ground is completely saturated. That means lots of raking. But that is a small price to pay for the lovely enjoyment of this gorgeous tree.



This look on Cayman's face has me imagining that she is thinking, "Where did all these leaves come from?? We just raked a couple days ago!"

And here she might be thinking, "What's this?? Not another hat!"

"Mom, I'm taking this ridiculous hat off!" -Cayman
"Cayman, don't you take that hat off. Mommy worked hard making it!" -The Mommy

"Oh man, now I have hat hair!"

"I guess I'll put the hat back on."

"Hey, why won't this go back on? A little help please!"

"You're right, Mom. I do look cute in this hat!"

This is by far my favorite photo shoot that you have done with Cayman. The color of the leaves are glorious! I especially love the picture where she is holding the leaf in her hands.

Happy raking!

That really is an amazing tree! I love fall colors, and I can imagine the yellow is even more brilliant in real life!
And Cayman is seriously cuter in each picture you post. I love how expressive her little face is, and the captions you post make me giggle aloud. :) I'm SO impressed by all the hats you make...I especially love the one she's wearing! SO CUTE!

Your comments only make the pictures cuter!! P.S. If Mike ever wears something non-OSU, you MUST take a picture!! :)

Your blog is one of the highlights of my day!
