Doing the leaves

Well.yesterday PL2 did the leaves in the driveway and we were inside watching(and then we fell asleep) Well today she woke up and PL1 said to her,"You had better look out the window" When she was done yesterday,she looked up and there had been ONE tree left with leaves on it....and guess what??!! Over night it decided to all fall down directly over where she had raked.To say she was not pleased would not be exactly right(especially since she spent the evening in the bath tub because her back was killing her and she kept popping Advil)So this time she decided that she needed extra help and grabbed us. This first video is us assessing the situation.You can see all the leaves( yesterday it was bare there when she was done!!)

Here I am trying to get Archie to be just a little bit more serious about the whole thing because PL2 was really saying a lot of naughty things under her breathe.

PL2 wanted us to show you how many bags she did yesterday!!! Thankfully we only had to fill one more today.But then we were really really tired again.......

It really is exhausting helping around the house....................

PL2 wants me to tell you to go to this website Of course we ALL know who TinTin is!!!!!Just the cutest WFT comic book character) OK ,now there is a game here that is ADDICTING that PL2 wants you to play because she can't stop playing this stupid thing...The game she is addicted to is Pousse Pousse.....

Goodnight all!!!!!!

Hey, A&A!

It looks to me like you were assessing your leads in that first video. Agatha, sorry to say it, but you sounded like a little piggy girl grunting at Archie in the 2nd vid.

Tell your mama to sleep with one of you curled up at her back, and one spooning with her in front. WFT's act as great heating pads.

Goober love,

Oh my, I can imagine how painful your mom's back must have been...Poor mom! That's a LOT of leaves. I think my mommy would have fainted doing all the work herself. Good thing you two were there to help her...

That's a lot of leaves! We love how you were kicking them into piles! What good helpers you both are!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Mojo, Digger and family said...

You two are so funny together pulling each others leads. I bet it takes an age to wear you two out.

That's the biggest yawn ever in that photo!

Hey A&A,
When my mom had her two little boys, they used to walk on her back in the mornings. Maybe you should do that for your mom. It might make her back feel a lot better.


Bebe said...

I've been helping all weekend too. I'm pretty tired right now. You two have time to talk with me, or my mommy and daddy about two wires? If so please email us

Hi A&A, you really did help with the leave raking detail, didn't you? we helped our mom rake leaves too. we had only 3 bags today, but 5 bags a couple of weeks ago. this weekend they were heavy though because they were wet. and after mom raked them, she founds new piles of dog poop that we hid under the leaves. hee hee. we're always playing tricks on her. that's what good kids do, right?


Joe Stains said...

watching those videos makes me glad we don't really have Fall out here, what a lot of work. I can see Archie is about as helpful as the doofus!

Noah the Airedale said...

G'day A & A,
We get loads of leave during Autumn too but nowhere near as many as that....Poor PL2, no wonder her back hurt.
Lucky she has two very good helpers.

Hugs and tail wags
Noah, Willow, Tess & Lucy

Ruby Bleu said...

Lenny said...

You guys deserve a nice long nap after all of that yardwork! The leaves are still all so pretty and yellow.

Your friend, Lenny

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Our last house had tons of leaves too...Mumsie's back aches in sympathy for PL2's...New house has woods...away from the house....much better for the lumbar area!
Stan's right bout the terrier heating pads. Scruffy charges more than I do cuz he's bigger, but it's still a good deal!

Jackson's J1 and J2 said...

What a lot of leaves! I think J1 would have just left them and hoped someone else (ie J2) would pick them up! Nice to see you two being so helpful. J x

You guys are really cute! I just signed your guestbook and I would LOVE you to leave me a nice picture of you in my guestbook too. Would you? Pretty pleeease!

Woofies, Alex
