Autumn, the Year's Last, Loveliest Smile

See all the sunshine pouring down?
The leaves are gorgeous.

See the lovely...

School was out for the day and a beautiful day it was. The temperature was perfect and the great outdoors needed a visit from my children. I'd barely suggested that they should take advantage of what was surely one of the last nice days of the season, when I heard the door slam shut behind the last child. 

I set about cooking dinner, at a quiet and leisurely pace when just outside of the kitchen window, I was more than thrilled to observe the following activity...

Four sleds + two rakes + seven million leaves + four siblings + one sky full of sunshine = three hours of creative play and one very busy photographer/cook!

Great !! Looks like a bunch of fun. . . .in the 7th pict down, Meg and Cole were definitely telling Molly it the same thing. Looks like Kate and Molly in the sleds were just sitting there waiting for snow! How fun to see kids playing and running (shown by the blurr), and enjoying creation. You were perhaps a blurr in the kitchen too.
Thanks for the picts and the story, Love Mom

Precious good times! You're making me homesick to see them. ;-)
Love you all!
