The Neighbor




So we have a neighbor. He's kind, and keeps to himself. Most of the time he's quite too, except for two times each year. The first is late spring/early summer. He always gives Nathan a hard time about our trees. And he always asks us when we are going to cut down our trees. He does not like them. Not at all. The other time of year he gets noisy is when the leaves fall off the trees that he does not like. Then he gets really noisy. That little leaf blower of his sure is loud! For some reason he thinks that he can blow his leaves into our yard for us to pick up. IT DRIVES ME INSANE!! So, he gets his leaf blower out, and starts blowing away. I don't mind the extra leaves so much, really, look at the pictures. We have so many leaves that another bag of them from his side really won't hurt. But, for some reason it just drives me crazy that he blows them over the fence. AHHHHH. And no, we won't confront him about it, I don't want to have the, "Cut down your trees" conversation. So, I'll just complain a little here, get over it, and start raking the leaves.

There is a little boy hidden in this picture, can you find him?Ooohh, there he is!!! Noah was having fun hiding in the leaves.

Wow! That's a lot of leaves. I think you should blow a few back over the fence just to give him a taste of his own medicine.

Idea: Wait until the next wind storm (even if it's just a little breaze) and maybe give a few bags of leaves some help back to their home...

I have never seen so many leaves in all my life! Such cute pictures of Noah! Looks like a lot of work, but a lot of fun too! xoxo

We feel your pain! Yesterday Dax and the boys spent half the day blowing, raking, mowing, whatever they could think of to get the leaves up to just wake up to a whole new bed of leaves this morning... without the neighbor's help! Mother nature is hard enough to deal with. Father Grump would be even worse... he can totally help it! Well, good luck. I have a rake if you need me! :)
