Our landscape crew came by and blew away some leaves. And this is what our yard looked like just a few hours later.

Dude! Mommy! There are a LOT of leaves falling. Yes, there are Kylie!

I knitted Kylie this cap last year. I thought it would be fun to make extra long cap dreads with the extra yarn.

Kylie thinks they are fun too.

Needless to say, we've had lots of fun making leaf lines, trains, and collages.

Floating them in any puddles she can find.

Getting mildly reprimanded for splashing in puddles. She looks really scared of me and my "No splashing" remark, doesn't she?

She's having so much fun with the leaves.

You can even say.....

They are mind-blowing.

Great toque (as we say in Canada)! I love the long tassels! Your new home has such beautiful light and you capture it so incredibly well. All of your photos are beautiful.

I have loved that hat ever since I first saw it. I love the picture of Kylie playing with the tassels. My favorite picture is the last one though...she looks mesmerized.
