An Autumn Wreath and More

This was the view out of my living room window. Our maple tree this year has been beautiful! I really want it to stay, but I know Fall leaves don't last forever. Me & the girls gathered some leaves in the yard and then went down to the bike trail to gather some more.

We put the leaves in the microwave to dry them out

and preserve their color (same effect as drying them in a big book)

attached them to a grapevine wreath with my glue gun

Ahhhh...I really love having the colors of Fall stay longer.

I took the kids to the park yesterday for our "Annual Fall Pictures"
Caleb had just got a haircut and looks SO grown up




And my favorite shot of the day!
