Leaf Love

I've been bit under the weather, so Ry took the kids out today.  When they came home, I heard all sorts of yelling and screaming from the backyard.  Ry and the kids were having a blast playing in the backyard leaves.  I caught these first 4 shots of them unknowingly from the window; then they spotted me in the last one! 

 I joined them to catch a few more fall photos.   


We invented a fun new part of leaf raking--tarp rides!  
I think the pics are pretty self-explanatory.

That's a lollipop Ry's mouth; he hasn't taken up smoking.

 Tess had planned an elaborate FHE for us, which required us to split into groups and hide envelopes for the other team to find.  

Dad and Tess were "Group A."  Drew and Mom comprised "Group B."

Once we found all the envelopes, we opened them to read gospel messages.  
What a cute little bug we have!

Tonight I bribed that little bug into cleaning the entire living room in exchange for listening to pop songs with earphones on my iPhone.  Which of course requires that she dress like Cyndi Lauper.

Great update! Kind of reminds me of when Ryan was little and we tricked him (or did we?) into leaf raking by calling it "Family Home Leafing."

I'm looking forward to pulling the "fishbone" at Turkey Day with Tess.
