Who knew leaves could be so much fun. My kids were having the best time in them. It is moments like this I feel proud of the life we are giving our kids. They were so blissful and happy in this pile of leaves. They have no care in the world. Stretching out childhood and the magic of it is my goal. Seeing a pile of leaves and just jumping, magic.
I see the beauty in these leaves. The changing of the seasons. The bright and vivid colors in the landscape. But, sometimes it takes my kids for me to see the fun in it. The possibility’s for pure happiness and giggles. After snapping some amazing pictures of them Dale and I jumped right in, attacking with leaves. It was perfection and a moment I hope I never forget.
And yes, we are finding bits and pieces of leaves everywhere. In fact it looks like a tree was in our home. I am still coming across leaves in the house. Right before we partook in this leaf craziness I was in the midst of family picture Christmas card planning. Trying to think of the best back drop, outfits, what time of day for lighting. But, looking at these pictures of my kids. Pure happiness, real genuine smiles, a little crazy and excitement thrown in. This is my family, my kids, my life. When life gives you a big pile of leaves. You jump in. I think I may have done the perfect impromptu photo shoot for our Christmas card. And my kids were none the wiser!
