Storm Prep



We have been in storm prep mode around here. Waiting for Frankenstorm (aka Hurricane Sandy) to make her arrival and hoping her impact won't be too severe or long lasting. We have a good stockpile of batteries, water, firewood, and leaves. Yes, leaves. While most of our neighbors have been frantically raking and piling up leaves, we have been picking out our favorites and bringing them inside. In the past few weeks, Camille and I have become leaf junkies. We can't get over all of the vibrant fall foliage. I can't stop taking pictures of the leaves and Camille can't seem to stop collecting them. We are keeping our fingers crossed and hoping Sandy won't do too much damage on her way through the area.

Have you ever done the wax dipping of leaves? The girls loved this and we had beautiful colored leaves to decorate our table and counters for months!!

Oh good idea....I have always wanted to do that wax dipping project but haven't lived in an area with colored leaves for many years. Thanks for reminding me about that, Shelly!
