Adventures in Autumn

I was pregnant with Elijah when Andy and I started house hunting. I kept re-emphasizing the fact that I wanted trees. "I want TREES!," I'd say. And, well, I got my trees.
In the fall, that means we have a lot of raking to do. Unlike a lot of chores, I really like raking. There's something satisfying about being able to look behind you and see all of the work you've done. Besides, it only has to be done once a year, and most importantly - those leaf piles provide all sorts of opportunities for fun!
This past Sunday, we spent the day raking as a family. Andy and I raked and Elijah helped by walking through the leaves and doing his best to spread the leaves back out on the ground.
By the way, Elijah is in the above photo. His little head is peaking through the leaves. Can you find him?Now do you see him? He's in there... Needless to say, we had a lot of fun!

I just found your blog by way of Hopeful Parents. I have an Elijah as well. Well, his name is Elijah and he's had a rough start in life too.
Your Elijah is so handsome! Looking forward to reading about him. xx
