Every October when the leaves fall from our neighbors tree the boys like to go play in them. Yesterday I saw the leaves and remembered a picture I took of us the year before and decided to take another one. So I told the boys I’d get them each a maple bar if they could cooperate and take a few pictures.
This is what we got!
And the rest came out kinda like this.
Here’s the picture I was thinking of. It seemed like just last year but it was actually two years ago.

Here’s our snowman and William’s letter to Santa.
I helped him write each ‘s’, ‘b’ and ‘y’, the rest was all him.
Wanna know what it says?
I am William Krehbiel.
I want a (drawing = Darth Vader helmet and a Darth Vader light saber) for Christmas.
I’m a good boy.
William and Andy are good buddies, in fact they adore each other. Every morning when they first see each other they smile from ear to ear and William yells, ‘Andeeeeee!! Andy waked up!’, I love it. Andy thinks William is the funniest thing on Earth, he can get him to laugh like no one else. I love that too.
These pictures are from our little jaunt this morning, before Andy’s nap. We wanted to play in these beautiful leaves one more time before they were gone.
This was William’s first time on a t-ball team and he loved it! Wearing a helmet and batting I think were his favorite. The week he got his t-ball shirt he wanted to wear it every day and I let him until it got too dirty.
here he is practicing in the front yard at home (wearing daddy’s batting gloves)
up to bat
fielding the ball
and sliding into home.
Anderson and grandpa and grandma came to every game to cheer William on.
We’ll definitely be doing this again next year.
Monday morning William decided he’d moved on from diapers to big boy underwear. Potty training began and it’s been wonderful.
We started Summer Reading at the library.
Anderson started rolling over and already skootches on his knees.
And lots of yard work. Mowing lawns, weeding and putting in bushes. It took us most of Saturday with grandpa’s help to put in five Boxwood bushes in front of our house.
