Congratulations ladies! I'll be contacting you. If you would still really like this book it is now available for purchase at Amazon here.
Now my friend Barb and I were discussing yesterday our love of fall. Around here fall is in full force. The cooler weather, the trees turning color, the leaves falling. It's been absolutely beautiful and warm during the days. My dayhome kids have been outside everyday raking, jumping in the leaves and driving every vehicle they can find through the backyard leaves. Barb was telling me her little crab apple tree has dropped a handful of leaves. So Barb, in honor of your little crabapple tree, and to let you savor some more fall here's some fall love pictures courtesy of my backyard.
My yard's version of the yellow brick road
The pic doesn't do justice to how big this pile really is. That is a 5 year old standing next to it. And 2/3 of the leaves are still on the trees. We spent an hour piling these continuously in front of that little tower while the kids took turns jumping off into the pillowy cushion of this huge mountain of leaves. They had a riot!
Whee! I love fall.Fall makes me happy! The one drawback that fall brings is a lot of this yellow stuff ends up in my house. But that's okay. It's so worth the giggles and smiles and I have a vacuum that becomes my best friend this time of year. Although I am pining and hinting for one of these.
