Leaves are Falling!

Yes, it's that time of year -- the raking and bagging of leaves time!

Oh my word -- instead of a slow downward spiral, the leaves came down in waves
in only a day or two. 

On Monday, Maddy raked and I bagged up 6 bags
plus a huge trash can full of leaves!

We woke up Tuesday to find the  lawn covered again!
After school, Maddy got out her rake and went to work --
this time we bagged another 8 or 9 bags  --
plus I mowed up the remainder with the lawnmower in the dark!  
 Really, someone needs to invent headlights for lawnmowers!

Muffy wanted to help us, but she has a hate/hate relationship
with rakes, so had to stay in the backyard. 

More rain, wind and . . . you guessed it . . . more leaves!
Plus -- leaves from the neighbors' trees are now blowing over!
 Fall in Nebraska --
We love it!

I didn't realize it until I moved here...they have giant trucks that suck up all your leaves. How cool is that! We don't need it, but man that would be awesome. Great pics girl.

Maddy is such a stylish raker. We can't rake leaves until the Halloween creatures and power cords are out of the yard. Oh darn (hee hee).
