Raking Leaves with Snowshovels

We didn't need rakes in our treeless, snowy backyard when we lived in Nebraska....and apparently last fall we were too busy moving into our house down here to get RAKES for the boys.......So being the inventive boys that they are.....they used their snowshovels to rake leaves into GIANT piles........ Here is sweet big brother Alex working very hard to pile up the leaves for his little bros. to jump in!


We lost Brian in the pile a couple of times! :)

Our little actor wanted a dramatic "falling leaves" scene for his picture....









hmmmmm....looks like trouble.




so much fun....






Brian kept laying down in the leaves and saying "cheese"...missed the smile pretty much every time....oh well...



Kate wondering what we are doing in the backyard when she could be in her warm house! Actually she LOVES being outside....



















Run (in the) Forrest, RUN!








Kate has had enough excitement for one day..


HAPPY FALL!

The pictures were great! I also thought it was a wonderful idea to use a shovel instead of a rake!

Really cute pictures! Snow shovels huh? They're not going to let a little thing like that slow them down!

I love fall leaf pictures. Your children are so beautiful and being outside this time of year is so refreshing. Gotta love raking with shovels. Too cute.
