snow or leaves...which is more fun?

On Thursday night I went with my dad to a free snowshoeing clinic at REI. This is where they make you so scared of avalanches that you don't leave your house all winter. And then they try and sell you on all this gear that you won't really need because you won't be leaving your house. Actually, it was fun and it's made me excited to try snowshoeing, so for the first time in my life I'm actually excited for it to snow. I've always been scared of being buried alive in snow anyway, so I won't be doing anything risky like going in the back country.

So here's a bunch of pictures of Tyler doing cute things.
This one looks a little indecent, but everything's covered. I debated about posting it but there's nothing cuter than those fat legs, so I had to share! Tyler's favorite thing to do is get up in the middle of a diaper change (after he's been wiped) and run around half naked. He hasn't yet peed on my carpet or furniture, but I'm sure once he does I won't be so willing to let him do this.
Looks comfortable doesn't he? This is how he was sitting as he ate dinner the other day.
Where's Tyler?

This weekend we went up to Ogden to rake up the leaves in Jeremy's grandparents backyard. We enjoy doing things like this because we don't have a yard with leaves. In fact our yard requires pretty much no maintenance, which is good because it gets neglected. We had lots of help from my parents and Jeremy's sister and her husband. It only took a few hours and the weather was gorgeous!! I couldn't believe it was November! And during a bit of down time we climbed a tree, sorry, there's no pictures of that. You'll just have to take my word for it.Alexis buried in the leaves.
We sat Tyler down in the leaves and he didn't dare move.

Piles of leaves and the tree we climbed.
Cramming 20 bags of leaves into the truck bed!

We've got a busy week ahead of us while we get ready for Thanksgiving, and a visit from Jeremy's family, and our trip to Denver to see the Bronco's play. Which means I'll have more to post about later!

Those are some of the cutest pictures of your kids I have seen yet. I would swear it looked like Tyler is about to start flying in that first picture. :) It looks AWESOME! :) I also love the one of Alexis buried (sp?) in the leaves. Looks like you had a fun time.
Let me know how your snowshoeing experiences go. :) See you in a little bit for preschool.
