"That's a lot of leaves!"

So the McHusband and I were good homeowners this weekend and we raked leaves. We raked and raked and raked. And then, just for fun, we raked a little more. I don't have any pictures of the yard before, but I'm sure at this time of year it's not too hard for you to imagine what a backyard with lots of trees probably looks like.

Anyway, we got the leaves into piles and then moved them to a tarp, which we then dragged to the back of our lot outside where the fence will go to dump the leaves. By the time we were done, the pile of leaves was at least 5' deep and was almost as tall as us.

As we said after each dump, "That's a lot of leaves!"

But it was worth it to see green grass again and to know that getting the leaves up would help us have green grass in the future.

Morgan and Tucker sunned on the deck while we prepared the backyard for their fence.

"Are you guys done playing around out there?"

"Wow, that's a lot of leaves!"
