Lydia and Kate have been playing so well together lately. I LOVE it. They are best friends. They give hugs and kisses every morning when we drop Lydia off at school. Kate gets so excited to see Lydia when we pick her up.

Leaf Hog

Have I ever shown you a picture of our yard at the peak of the fall leaves? Or should I say after all of those fall leaves have graciously fallen onto our lawn (and that's only a 1/4 of our lawn). Well, fret no more! I have just two words to say: this is the best thing I have ever bought!!!!!! I am so excited. After learning the hard way last year with having to rake every single inch of leaves on our lawn (we even left a small pile over the winter and it totally KILLED the grass) we decided to buy this:

Yup! It blows the leaves into a pile and then sucks them up. It also mulches 10 bags of leaves into 1 bag. You're probably saying, "OK, Kim this is OLD NEWS," but this is the first time we have owned a house and I didn't know it existed. So now I will have time to relax this fall and enjoy life instead of raking leaves every day=). Yeah!

School Pictures

Sorry about the pause in posts. Lydia started preschool. She even had a "picture day." So I took pictures of her in the morning so that when she took her picture after lunch and recess, I'd have a half way decent picture of her. I'm so happy that she let me cut her hair. The tangles in her hair were causing rifts in our relationship!=) Well, Lydia's in school, Kate misses her during the day and I am getting so much done around the house. Fall is soon approaching here. I'll definitely send you some pictures of the view. It's beautiful here in the fall!
Kate misses Lydia while she is gone but she finds things to occupy her time. This is one of Kate's friends, Elijah. He is a ball of energy and we love him lots. His dad just started medical school so we've been getting to know his family.
