One More

Another leaf jumping video, this one Photobucket again. I think Photobucket distorted the video the least.

More Leaves!

I'm having fun with the videos. I think the photobucket upload came out the clearest. What do you think?

This one is another upload to Blogger:

Hmm now I have to learn how to edit the videos so I can cut out the end LOL It would have been better if I could cut off the part when Noah leaves for the bathroom!

more videos

and here I try Blogger's video hosting, to see how they compare:

My First Ever YouTube Video

Here is the first of several videos I took of the boys raking and jumping in the leaves. I'd have more, and picked the best ones, but even with DSL it took soooo long to upload! Also, the quality isn't as nice as it was on my computer.

Here is Jacob helping with the raking. You can hear Caleb talking in the background.

Here is a video I uploaded to Photobucket, to compare uploading times and picture quality. It is a short one of Levi jumping into the pile of leaves.

They're Baaaack!

According to the website Muppet Central , Disney is making a push to bring Muppets back into popularity. Part of their strategy is to release a bunch of videos on YouTube. Some of them are hilarious. Here is one of my favorites:

My kids Looooove the Muppets, as properly taught by their Muppet-loving parents :-)
I hope if we are going to be seeing some new material, that it is as creative and funny as they were at the start.

They've also filmed a new Christmas special this summer, to air some time in December. I'm keeping my eyes peeled for air time; it will be on NBC.

These are the days that make Fall a favorite season. As opposed to the cold grey rainy days LOL

Indian Summer


Today it was almost 70 outside. In November. Woohoo! The boys took full advantage. Some went bike riding, so went tree climbing. This afternoon they started raking. We have too much yard and too few trees to really care about the leaves. They will blow across the street into the cow pasture eventually. But they make great piles for jumping!

In the back yard:

Jacob helps out:
Let me help spread those out for you

Levi jumps in!

I love this one of Troyer and Noah; Noah is just about to jump in and ruin Troyer's pile LOL:
