When Autumn Leaves are Falling.....

..... We head on out to our local woods at the back of our home and get the kids covered in those leaves, just for the fun of it!! And they loved it. You can just see Ethan's head poking out through the leaves... bless him.
Autumn is my favourite time of year, I adore the Autumnal colours, burnt umbers, reds, golds and browns, I even had my hair coloured for autumn at the hair salon yesterday!

Once we came through the woods we reached one of the many fields surrounding our home, they were full of these hay bales, the boys loved rolling around on top of them. You can just make out that they are both carrying wooden sticks that they had found in the woods, they were using them as broom sticks like Harry Potter, and then once we were in the thick of the woods they decided that they were their weapons to attack any Goblins that we may encounter, "like in Spiderwick Mummy" they shouted!! LOL!! Oh I do so love their wonderful imaginations.

We are so lucky to have such a wonderful wood on our doorstep, in Winter it is quiet and mysterious in thick Snow; In Spring glorious with Bluebells; In Summer warm and very green, and in Autumn, wow!! it comes alive with amazing colour.... oh and the smell in Autumn is my favourite, burnt woodsmoke from the surrounding chimney's, as people keep warm in their homes.
We came back from our walk to a homemade lasagne, courtesy of Daddy.... yummy!! And then we too sat in front of our fire for a toasty evening in front of the TV.

Oh my it sounds so fun! I love the Autumn also, it is my favorite time of year. I am making boiled dinner tonight and I spent the afternoon at the park with my 2yr old grandson.
Have a lovely evening

Hi Mandy! It was so nice to hear from you! It looks like you guys are having so much fun. I wish it felt like fall here. We are having a heatwave. It hit 100 degrees yesterday. I'll hang in there... the cool will come. Have a fabulous week sweetie!!!
