Your illustration exactly captures the spirit of the season.
Nothing my two liked better than diving off the porch onto the fallen maple leaves.......ah lost youth -

Thanks, Alicia! We loved to jump in the leaves as kids (despite the occasional dog-doo...) Nowadays there are so many ticks around because of all the deer, so I'm not sure kids do it much anymore.

And thanks, Christine! The themes are good to keep me motivated. Ha-- I wasn't thinking of my hubby and kids in particular when I did this-- but if it were them, then I'm the one painting the picture, silly! ;-)

Elizabeth- Glad you're back! Youth-- oh yes, I'd worry about hurting something if I jumped into a pile of leaves now!
