All The Leaves Are Brown. And Wet.

Happy Saturday Readers. 

Since it is nearly December already, and surprisingly it wasn't raining, I figured I had better tackle the ever increasing 'leaf carpet' that used to be my back yard. Of course it has been raining recently, quite a bit actually. This is Seattle after all.

Anyway, all that rain made for mostly soggy leaves not exactly ideal for working with. Thankfully, I had the best kind of help in Lukas.

And, because I'm the dad of a 4 year old, which honestly is probably the only thing which gives me license to, I got to do THIS with him:

I wonder if I can still convince him to do this when he is a teenager.

My 4 year old would need no goading at all.My 8 year old wouldn't either.

Our leaves are nearly gone, but our "helpers" want me to create big piles for jumps as well.

I hope you and the family had a nice Thanksgiving holiday.

Well if all else fails I think he's set with a career in cinematography and/or commentating! Wow! I was so impressed with his impromptu comments at the end. :-)

And nice jump dad!

@Doria - Everything is fun with a 4yo

@Daniel - They are fearless at this age, aren't they?

@Slamdunk - You need to borrow leaves from your neighbors.

@Momnextdoor - I Know! That was unexpected, but awesome.

@BloggerFather - I will try to do at least one gay with just the stache and get a picture posted.
