The Days of Fall

Just as Pumpkin Pie goes with a Thanksgiving feast, so does the days of fall go with falling leaves and unfortunately some work to pick up those fallen leaves. The greatest thing of all is when you can take those moments and make a little fun while the work is being done. Jeff was outside raking while the boys were playing some football and that is just a moment in this beautiful day!


Here is Tristin, Jacob, and Austin running some plays and trying to score.


Here is Tanner joining in the game. This was a flashback moment because Tanner and his friends used to play in this very yard.


Of course here is Jeff raking the leaves around the boys.


But then the next thing you know there he is getting in the plays.


Here is Tanner playing all time quarterback!


Here is Austin going out for a pass with Tristin and Jacob ready to try and get an interception.


Of course after the game and the leaves were raked up Jeff took the kids and put them in the leaf pile to jump around!


Here Emilee and Jaden are trying to throw the leaves up in the air.

Then finally of course Jonathan found his way into the leaves for his moment of fun.


Just remember there is always work to be done but it can always be mixed with fun. Every moment is another opportunity to make another memory. Of Course the days of Fall would not be complete without a Thanksgiving dinner with family and friends.

We have been so blessed this year and we are so very thankful for all that God has blessed us with and the friends and family that we are so thankful for. We pray that your days of fall were filled with friends and family as well and as we are almost at Christmas I am sure we will have more moments to share.
