Fall leaves

Even though the fall season is just about over, fall is definitely still in the air. The leaves on our trees in our backyard are a little late to change color, but they finally have. They have become amazing shades of orange and yellow this week and I just love to look at them. Today was a windy day and it looked so awesome as the leaves were falling from the trees in splashes of yellow. Ella and I spent some time together outside and I snapped this gorgeous photo of her sitting in the leaves....

Here is one of the trees. Pretty, isn't it? I just love these trees. They change with every season.
Speaking of leaves, this weekend we had a garage sale and we spent some time in the front yard. Between customers, Joey put up the Christmas lights on our house and then got the rake out and put little Cali to work raking leaves.....


Aubrey and Ella supervised:)

WOW you aren't kidding those pictures are beautiful. Ella is most photogenic for sure. Hey does Cali hire out? I love those supervisors I must say they take after their dad he'll have to tell you that story. Beautiful fall pictures hope you made out at your garage sale. Those are always fun great multi-tasking.

fall leaves . . . what's that?!? Sorry I've been a comment slacker--it has been a little busy around here & I'm lucky just to get a glimpse of all the blogs I follow. :( I totally understand about the pictures too--next time though we are going to have to work out a deal--your hubby take our pictures & I'll take yours--even trade?!?!

Cute pictures of the girls. Your tree is beautiful. I wish we had one of those trees in our yard. How much does Cali charge to rake leaves? :)

Those trees are beautiful! Cali seems to be enjoying the yard work. The other two also look like they're enjoying their chore of supervising, as well. Love it! How do you guys do with the garage sale? Did you make the big bucks!?!

Wow, what a great picture of Ella! I put Casey to work sweeping the driveway not too long ago. Isn't it strange how little ones always want to do the hard work that us grown ups despise! If only they were "life-sized"... even though that would be a little difficult. Lol
