IT'S SNOWING LEAVES!

TRULY IT IS!!!I looked out my back slider at precisely the right moment -- just as a colorful Maple had decided to shed its coat for another season. Off came its leaves, drifting down by the thousands like feather-light snowflakes, blanketing the ground in red and gold. We were baby sitting our grandkids, Dylan and Lexi, at the time, so Cecil decided to take Dylan out for a bit of raking. Well, as you know, you don't rake with a two-year-old and expect the pile to stay intact. In fact, the pile became a "bed" of sorts.

HERE THEY ARE RACING TOWARD THE BED OF LEAVES!


DYLAN CLEARLY IN THE LEAD!


WHEEEEEEE!


DYLAN AND PAPA WRESTLING. AGAIN, DYLAN, CLEARLY ON TOP!


There is NOTHING on earth like Grandpa/Grandson time. SEIZE THE MOMENT!

What wonderful, precious moments! My daughter and almost 1 yr. old grandson are staying with us while my son-in-law is deployed to Turkey. We are eating it up! Lol! Don't know what we will do when they leave for home again...:(
