Leaves Are Gone

Sometimes, I think I got "the" picture.  This time, I was pretty sure I didn't. 

And then I saw this one.  So silly.  No idea what Oscar was doing here.  Earlier in the day, the boys were playing with face paint sticks.  Love face paint sticks.  Beats the Sharpie on the face any day.  And yes, we have had Sharpie on the face in the past.  This rain and wind has taken the last of our leaves to our neighbor.  I love a good wind.

As I am typing this, the boys, all three of them, are watching The Hobbit.  The cartoon version with all the songs.  This is the movie that Tom loves.  He tried to have me watch it multiple times.  And for each time, I fell asleep.  I just have a hard time getting interested in a cartoon.  But this time, I think will be different.  This is the second time for the boys watching it and already they seem to be re-enacting and talking about different scenes.

It will be interesting to see if they hold this movie as dear to their hearts as their Dad.

The greatest adventure is what lies ahead.
Today and tomorrow are yet to be said.
The chances, the changes are all yours to make.
The mold of your life is in your hands to break.

The greatest adventure is there if you're bold.
Let go of the moment that life makes you hold.
To measure the meaning can make you delay;
It's time you stop thinkin' and wasting the day.

The man who's a dreamer and never takes leave
Who thinks of a world that is just make-believe
Will never know passion, will never know pain.
Who sits by the window will one day see rain.
The greatest adventure is what lies ahead.
Today and tomorrow are yet to be said
The chances, the changes are all yours to make
The mold of your life is in your hands to break.

The greatest adventure is what lies ahead.
