Fall to Winter

Our weather has been getting colder these days....definitely a sign of the winter to come. According to Farmers Almanac, this will be the coldest winter here than we've had in ten years. It's been in the low 30's when I leave for work in the morning and in the mid-to-high 30's when I head home into the evenings. Hold onto your hats!

Two weeks ago, however, it was a balmy 52 degrees and the boys did some raking to get the backyard ready for winter. Pay no attention to the big shadow of myself (or that "big fuzzy thing" as T called it). I like this picture 'cause it shows how excited R is for hiding his bro in the leaves.

T had a lot of fun too, as you can see by his smile. By the way, do you see those red adirondack chairs in the background? Boy, I love those chairs!

This picture is for AJ, who always wants to see pictures of Macky. Here she is trying to dig T out of the pile.

Finally, a picture of proud R, looking oh-so-serious and tough. I guess that his rake is his weapon or something...

What a fun moment you captured. Great memories for the bros. I love R's tough face. Boy.. I wouldn't mess around with that rake bearing guy! Very fun!

Oh, I feel so special to have a picture posted just for ME! And I love it too! Thank you very much, that is one beautiful, sweet sweet doggy, I love Macky.

Really great fall pictures of the boys too. On that balmy 52 degree day. (You've got to be kidding! Hold on to your hat for the upcoming winter there!)

I just read Jen's comment about that tough rake-bearing guy, cracks me up. It's so R, too! Love the pics, thanks sweetie!

Great to capture those expressions on both boys having all that fun. Hope this comment will post, I've been having trouble with commenting on this blog. Macky is a beautiful color, I know I would love him too! I'm just sorry I won't get to see you and your beautiful family this Xmas. Thanks for that great homemade card you sent with the wonderful pictures. They immediately went up on the fridge gallery. Love you sooo much!
