October Photo Challenge: Kids + Fall

Fall is my favorite season!!  I just love when the trees start to turn yellow, orange, and red, and the leaves begin to fall.  Some of my favorite childhood memories were during the season of Fall!  What kid doesn’t love Halloween, Thanksgiving – and maybe I’m crazy, but I loved going back to school too – LOL!!  For this month’s challenge, grab your favorite shots of your kid(s), or someone else’s kids for that matter, displaying some aspect of fall.  Everyone is invited to participate in sharing their favorite kids + fall photo (old or new)! 

Here are the prizes:

I had the exact same question…What if you do not have a blog? Can I use a facebook page?

Hi, at the risk of sounding clueless can you tell me where specifically to copy the code for the button for it to show on the post? It never works for me, and I’m sure is user error :) I have entered, but need to add that one step. Thanks!

I’m having trouble linking back to my blog post, I keep getting a message saying ‘%20 protocol’ not recognised or similar. Anyone have any idea what that’s about?

Kari Lane - October 11, 2011 - 1:03 pm

I just tried to enter and I’m not sure it worked. I uploaded my photo and I don’t see it there with the others but I also didn’t get any error saying it didn’t go through.
