monkey hats and yellow leaves

We have this beautiful collection of yellow leaves from the maple and aspen trees above our garage.. which also happens to be right above the trash cans.

That doesn't stop him from running head first into the pile, and I'm okay with it!

He's always handing me things he finds on the ground (leaves, flowers, grass blades) and I'd be lying if I said I never took them inside with us and pressed them in some books.

It's currently snaining (sleeting?) half snow-half raining outside, so we'll totally be inside sipping cocoa and making cookies for the rest of the day.


  1. So cute. He's getting so big!!

  2. Oh man, I want cocoa and cookies. Gorgeous photos! Gwen has started to hand me all kinds of things, too.
