Leaves For Sale!

We have SO many leaves at our house and we have been slackers at getting them picked up this year! First of all, our trees shed their leaves a little later this year than usual and just in time to get rained on for quite a few days. Cam kept telling me that we would let them dry out for a few days before we raked them up. Well that day never came, it would rain again or we had something going on, the list of excuses could continue...

Finally, after feeling like we were "the trashy owners who didn't care" on our street, I started raking the wet soggy leaves. I set a goal of picking up one section of leaves a night, which is all I could manage before Little Miss had had enough. I completed 3/4ths of just the front yard until I ran out of bags today. On Saturday Cam Cam did the back yard and side yard. I have everything raked up and just need to get some more bags and then our leaf problem will be over for the year!

So far we have 28 bags of leaves and I figure I need 8 more to pick up the remaining piles!

Okay, this post is very boring and I am sure you were all dying to know about the Greener's raking up their leaves so I will end now with the most important part-pictures! :)

Check out Hannah's face in all of these pictures. She pretty much hates anything to do with leaves...touching, stepping on, looking at...

Wow! Makes me appreciate still living in an apartment where someone else cleans up leaves...though in Cali we don't get to many that fall of the trees. Looks like quite the job!

Hannah I am so sorry your mommy makes you play in those leaves! My dad and scott were talking the other day about inventing beautiful trees that were made of plastic or rubber that would change colors of the seasons. Great idea! Why don't you let carson show off his great business skills and sale the bags of leaves I am sure he could talk someone in to buying them for a buck or two.
