This past week saw the end of summer and the beginning of winter. Hopefully fall will manage to work it's way into the mix, but for now, it appears to be cowering in Arizona with no intent of visiting us.
We've had several frosts and threats of snow on the surrounding hills.
So Mrs Notthat took the hint and swapped out her summer clothes for winter clothes, an all day process that I promised not to make fun of.
So I headed outside with the grandkids to see how big of a leaf pile we could make.
It wasn't a very big pile, but it was big enough for them and Selma to have fun with.
They tried diving into it, but it was a bit crowded.
Then the real fun began when they decided to redistribute the leaves around the yard.
Riley thought it would be fun to redistribute some leaves on The Blog.
The Blog had a slightly different opinion. (Observant readers will note that the cherry tree still has a LOT of green leaves on it. This means you still have LOTS of leaf infested pictures to come in the weeks ahead.)
As a punishment, I gathered the leaves back up and buried the kids in them. Note how badly this made them feel.

That's it - move along...
