Last year I got the most wonderful spontaneous picture of the kids lying in the leaves. I tried to repeat it this year, with not quite as good results. Still cute, though. With some help from a few windy days, all the leaves finally fell from our aspen trees....and blew into everyone else's yard! We still filled several bags, but it didn't seem as big of a job this year. Sorry to our neighbors who thought they were sparing themselves a lot of work by not planting trees.
