Snow is falling all around... Oh wait, I mean leaves!

Now, I know that a lot of you are getting snow and piles of it where you live... But here in Bagdad, we were excited because the last storm finally made the last of the leaves fall down. So, instead of feet and feet of snow we had feet and feet of leaves. And we celebrated by jumping in our biggest pile!!!!! We each had our unique way of attacking the leaves as evident by the pictures. Lund and Cassidy liked to flip into the pile, so it always looks like they are standing on their heads in the pictures. Sarah liked to ride an invisible motorcycle into the pile and I just liked to do some old fashioned karate. Morgan tried to even scare the leaves away, but that didn't work either. So enjoy the snow or leaves or whatever may be falling from the sky in your neck of the woods!

Can you find Lund?????????

Cassidy takes her first jump

Lund's first jump was a little more daring!

He got real good at landing on his head!

Cassidy tries a "Kung Fu Panda" move

Morgan tries to scare the leaves away!!!

They all jumped at the same time and Sarah got squished in the middle!

Sarah decides to ride her invisible motorcycle into the leaves!

Morgan gets some "sweet air" on this jump!

And, after much convincing, Mom jumps in too!!

Oh for a Pile of Leaves in Bismarck. Snow is a coming again tonight. We need 2" more to break the all time record for the snowiest month on history, ever, in Bismarck. We might make it in the next two days.

Leaves here are a thing of the past, but the snow leaves us wanting to leaves here and find a place with leaves!!!!
