Count Your Blessings Monday (10/29)

"I am giving us an opportunity every Monday to not only count our blessings, but to share them with others. This is a way that we can encourage one another. Make a post on your blog telling us about your blessing. Please put a link back to this post. You can add the URL of your blog post on Mr. Linky below. Many of our blessings we will have pictures of and we can share those as well. I think that many times we forget that it is a blessing to be able to breath, to get out of bed, to hold a baby... Share your blessings with us. They encourage others. We can share so many other things.... special gifts, recipes, let's take the time to share how God has blessed us!! -Marci"

I have never taken the time to take part of this....I don't know why, I just haven't. Today I decided is the day. The Lord has given me so many blessings that it is hard for me to imagine. I decided I wanted to share the blessing of getting to enjoy Autumn. Out of all of the seasons, Autumn is my favorite. I love the smell that is in the air, the crunching of leaves under my feet as I play outside with my children, and the rich colors that this time of year provides. Oh yes...and the exercise I get from raking the leaves. ;) Last week I had the opportunity to play outside with Sweet E and I wanted to show some pictures from this fun time. Little E was outside for a short time, but he just woke up from his nap and he wasn't very happy about being subjected to sitting in leaves. :D

Wonderful pictures, darling. I can imagine that Lizzy didn't want the tags taken off the backpack... LOL! ;-)
