Fall is falling!

Oh, the leaves!  Our beautiful maple tree is shedding...shedding...shedding.  Luckily, the weather has been incredibly gorgeous,* so the Helpful Hufflings and I don't mind the raking a bit!

Here is what our front yard looks like, once freshly raked:

(hoping that the new landscaping survives the winter)



And here is why the Helpful Hufflings like to help!  I have gotten smarter over the past few weeks, and now put the leaf pile on the driveway, instead of on the lawn, so that when they decide to UN-rake, there is less spread.  However, I don't think they'll be doing that again.  (Mommy was pretty mad....but quite impressed at their thoroughness.)



And of course, this is our lawn, less than 36 hours after raking.  Sigh.  But it's so pretty.





Unrelated, but hysterical:
Hat head + peanut butter as styling aid + "what do you mean, lunch is over????"




*  a little help:  native canadian summer?  first nations summer?  what's the pc term, please?
