We Love Sugarhouse!

Honestly, we really do love it here. We love fall, the huge trees that line our streets, and the awesome changing colors of the leaves. BUT, once those leaves fall - it is madness! We hate raking leaves! We tried to mow up some of them, but there are so many that the mower just can't handle it - so we put our arms to work raking and bagging! The city drops off bags (well only 10) and then you can put all your bags on the sidewalk and they will come and get them. How nice of them?! Here is the start for us - 28 bags and counting!! Most of our leaves have fallen, but in the back yard our neighbors have huge trees that droop over to our side and those leaves have not fallen yet - so there is more raking to come! AHHHHHH!

We feel your pain here in Michigan...but the city won't pick them up so we have to make a compost pile in the back. What a pain but well worth the beauty!

Ours got picked up yesterday!?!?! Sure hope that doesn't mean they aren't coming back. Our trees are still full of leaves. Wanna come over?

Holy moly! I wish we even had one tree that dropped leaves.

Tey,
Could you tell the trees to stop dropping leaves. Ours son (Blakers) is afraid that we won't have air to breath if the leaves don't stop falling. I guess he really was listening when we discussed how plants are necessary for good air. Al

Are your arms sore? That's a lot of work!

That is one of the few things that I do NOT miss! Cute house, though!
