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!

I hear ya...we also get an overload of leaves in the fall/winter. The first winter we were here, that's what we did on Christmas day, was jump in the leaf piles. Good purchase... (is that Bono using a leaf blower/sucker?)

I love how you get so excited about things like that. It makes me excited to have a house one day and know that I won't have to rake leaves.

Derrel, I love the new look: slicked-back hair (did you dye it darker?) and safety goggles. And your house in the background looks snazzy!
