Playin' in the leaves...

A couple weeks ago, I had the bright idea for all 4 of us to go to the park and use my tripod and self timer to take some family photos. My intention was to get a great photo for Christmas cards, but I just didn't get one I loved (don't worry - I made them try it again the next wekeend in a different location and different outfits for Jenna and I...and got a Christmas card worthy photo. You'll just have to wait a few weeks to see it when you get your Christmas card!). When I was done torturing my family with the mandatory family photo, I asked Jacob and Jenna to play with the leaves, and just started snapping. I love how these turned out!

First...the non-Christmas-card-worthy family photo (it's okay....just not what I had in mind...I don't like our mix of outfits...I don't like the shelter house in the background...plus I look squinty!)
Lots of fun in the leaves....




Jacob...throwing leaves at me! I think he was a little tired of the photo taking at this point!
Jenna...another spinning photo! There's just something about spinning photos that I like. I know I have taken a lot of her spinning! I could probably publish a whole book of photos of Jenna spinning!
One of my favorites from the day....I know there will be a day very soon when I won't be able to PAY them to lay this close together in the leaves for a photo! :)

I'm already missing the beautiful blue sky and colors of the leaves. I like the 3D effect of Jacob throwing leaves.

I love the one of Jacob throwing leaves at you. And the black and white one.

Fast forward my kids 6 years, and that last one could be them.It reminded me so much of the one of them on your floor!
