  • Oh heck yeah! When I was a kid, I used to bury myself in them and just lay there. I loved the smell and the feeling of the leaves on my skin. Maybe that's why Autumn is my favorite time of year.

  • I don't but my boys do! We live on the corner lot of a cul-de-sac so we get the whole streets leaves blown over as well as ours. We are able to make huge piles that the kids love playing in. The raking part sucks though.

  • We do once they all have fallen off the trees...we have quite a few trees and a very large yard. My girls like to jump in them if they are dry, but we try to hurry up and bag them all in one weekend so we can take them to the landfill. We usually end up with about 50 full bags. Good news is, we empty the bags and reuse them. :) It's a long weekend when we rake leaves and we have to do it or our grass dies.

  • I don't own a rake and don't do yard work, so no, I don't... And I never liked jumping in leaves as a kid, so I didn't even do it then...
