Tents and raking leaves

Monday afternoon, Christian and Carson decided to rake the leaves in our front yard. They had them all raked into piles and started to put them into bags when they decided that the bags we had were too small and it would take them forever to put all the leaves into the bags so they stopped until I could get some more bags. Well, since then, we have had some ucky weather and we still have 4 piles of leaves in our yard. Maybe today we can get them picked up. Here are some pictures of their hard work.

That night Christian and Carson worked on building a "castle", as Carson called it, in the living room. I have to say it was a pretty cool fort and they had a great time building and playing in it.

The picture of Carson in the leaves is so sweet! We have no leaves to rake and I remember in WY the kids loved helping! A great age for that!

Jill...It was great to hear from you. I can't believe that you guys have two boys. They are sure cute! I hope things are going well for you and your family. Maybe one of these times I'll get the courage up and go on a cattle drive.

Hey! Over the summer Jay worked for APX Alarms. So we were living in Nashville for 3 months while he sold alarm systems. It was pretty fun at least for me and the kids. It is pretty hard work for Jay though, but its a great company! We are planning on it again this summer. It will be fun to see what new place we will get to move too!
Carson is so cute in the leaves picture. You definitely have to frame that one!
