It was one of the coldest days of the season but the sun was too gorgeous and the leaves were glowing, tempting us to come out and play. So I bundled the girls up in layers, put on their too-small mittens from last year and played in the leaves until their noses started to get red - which was a total of 15 minutes. Nick even surprised the girls with his magic leaf blowing power. Either way, it was worth it.
