It's Raining Leaves!

"Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower."
~Albert Camus

It seems like our yard was filled with leaves almost overnight on this first day of autumn, so Elise and I thought we'd go out and do some raking so Jamie could mow the grass. She was very helpful, of course.

I also did a little bit of decorating on the porch, and Elise seems to really enjoy it! And a big thank you to my mom, who took me shopping for our deocrations as an early birthday present yesterday. She's going to be at a conference in San Diego over my actual birthday, and she knows how I love fall, so we had a great time yesterday celebrating in advance. Thanks, mom!!!

Your house looks ready! I need to do some decorating, but mine is going to have to wait a few weekends I think...

Looks like so much fun!! I always remember your birthday, not only because it is a day after my dad's, but also because we were good friends for so many years. Don't you just love Oct.....I know you do hahaha. I got that slide show from It's like and photobucket, but it has different slides. What a good helper Elise!
