When the Leaves Change

DaddyO told EJ to watch for the leaves to change color as a sign of his coming home. They were starting to bud and bloom when he left and needed to be red, orange and yellow for him to return. She was very aware of the their colors around her. She would point out the changing leaves in her books and remind me that "Daddy comes home when the leaves change colors".

Well, the leaves are starting to change and that means DaddyO will be home soon! In celebration of the upcoming reunion we read "Autumn Leaves" and baked sugar cookies.

We mixed up the dough and started cutting out the leaves.

After they baked we mixed up vibrant colors and decorated the leaves. We hope the days till DaddyO returns disappear as fast as the cookies.
