Ask & Ye Shall Receive

The Queen requested that I get to my computer and make a new Munchkin Monday Post, so here it is:

Well a few weeks ago I posted(Leaf Lovin Munchkins)about a fun day playing in the leaves with the kiddo's but I was unable to put up any corresponding photos. I decided that sense it is officially winter now in our part of the globe that I should make one last fall post for the year. So here are some great pictures of the Littles playing forever on a crisp, sunny, autumn day.

We started out with a tiny little pile, which of course was big enough for all of the fun. However after you jump into a crunchy leafy pile of fun enough time, it starts to flatten out. So its time to grab the rakes and make.... a huge pile! This pile was but on the slope of the yard, and at its tallest point, it measured about 3 1/2 feet, and it was sort of oval shaped 5 feet wide at the widest, and 4 feet wide at the narrowest point. This was no joke of a pile. So of course, I thought, "Hey that pile is so big I should be able to jump in it just like the kids!"After deciding it was large enough fro me to actually do so, I showed Little Ann how to snap a photo, and she caught me just as I was landing in the pile, on my butt, leaves crushing beneath me and flying around, as I slammed hard through the pile to the ground and knocked the wind out of myself! It was fun, but painful too, I won't make that mistake again!

After I got up there was sort of a dent. Little Ann thought that it would be really cool to have a leaf fort, so we grabbed our tunnel from the house, plopped it into the center and piled the top with more leaves. The kids had the time of their lives crawling through the tunnel and sitting in the middle of the leaves. There was no lack of laughter at our house that day! Just a great way to toss up some leaves and enjoy the lovely fall weather and scenery :)

Hopefully everyone got a chance to truely enjoy their fall seasons.. on with winter!
