Manic Monday - Leaf

MM Headquarters ~ Previous MMs
Graphic by Janna
I usually take fall photos of the kids out in the front yard. Last year, they both found some rather large leaves out in the yard and insisted on posing with them. Since it was the only way I could get them to pose, I allowed them to hold a leaf. This wasn't the pose we used for "the" photo, but I always thought this one showed their personalities rather well. We love fall around here. The only thing I dislike is having to rake the leaves.
Happy Manic Monday!

They look so happy!
At least I think that's happiness... now that I think of it, it might also be "My leaf is bigger than your leaf!"
"Is not!"
"Is too!!"

I agree - this photo really shows off their personalities!

I couldn't leave my Linky, but since you've already visited me, you know where to find my post. LOL

Declare yourself an environmentalist and stop raking leaves. You can be all noble and say you are using Mother Nature's ready made mulch.
