Raking Leaves

Ho Ho Ho!

It is time for chores up here at the North Pole!

Mother Nature has blessed us here with mountains of colorful leaves to enjoy through the fall. The trees are preparing for winter by shedding their leaves. When the snow begins to fall and gather on the trees, the weight of all those snow flakes is too much for the trees if the leaves are still on. After the trees drop their leaves, they can usually handle the weight of the snow.

We are spending our Saturday morning raking the leaves that have dropped from the trees. Their are tons and tons of colorful leaves that we rake each year. We see yellow leaves, red, orange and brown leaves, and sometimes we rake leaves that have many colors on them! It is fun to make a great big pile of leaves to play in before we are done with our work! Well, back to raking leaves for now.

Have a great day . . .

Ho Ho Ho!
