Big saturday project!

So our big project for saturday was to rake our backyard! As you can see in the pics we had alot of leaves! I didn't think that it would be that much fun but it ended up being a blast! We bought enough rakes for the kids and one for J and then I assisted in taking pics and loading the bags!When we got piles that were big enough we took a break and played! It couldn't have been a more beautiful day to do it either and the kids had alot of energy because of their halloween candy:) By the end we had packed full 10 55 gallon black trash bags!!!! The next morning we woke up to more leaves that had fallen so we will be doing this again hopefully before it snows:)

Our backyard with all of the leaves!

J, Kenzie and Weston rakin' away:)

Olivia loved playing in the leaves!

Alyssa hard at work, she was awesome!! Great job sweetie:)

For Weston's size he handled the rake pretty good!

Then the fun began..............
kept going.....................
and going.................
and going.................
still going...................
awhhhhhhh! Alyssa had to get a picture of us!

Little Landon didn't like the leaves all that much:)

The final result!! Some of our neighbors suggested that we use these for insulation and put them up against our house......our house only has the minimal requirements for insulation and we don't know if that is enough yet, so we are seriously considering their suggestion:) Maybe once we can't feel our toes then we will get smart..............we'll see.......

Leaves are so fun! I just raked our leaves this week too. We don't have nearly as many, but sure enough the next day they were already falling again.

wow, what a project. But how fun is it that you have a house and can actually do things like that. Looks like the kids had a great time. It reminded me of when we would rake the leaves in a pile at the courts and play, only we could rake them and make a mess and never worry about cleaning them up!!!!
And I love the halloween costumes, they look great!
