A haircut and more leaves

On Wednesday, Mrs Notthat, WHM, and Riley all watched as Darci got a haircut. Here is the before picture:

And here is the after picture:

Yeah, I don't see much difference either. Riley seemed to have had a pretty good time waiting for the event to end.

The grandkids both love wearing their rain boots. A lot. What kid (or stunted adult like, ummm, me) doesn't like playing in puddles? I'm with them - it's best to be prepared for "just in case."

One nifty thing to point out, that hooded sweater that Riley is wearing was made by WHM! She worked on this a lot during the trip to Maryland. Amazing.

Yesterday the grandkids came over so that WHM could study. It never did warm up very much - it only got up to a cloudy 61 - but that didn't slow down the assault on the front yard leaves.

One thing you might notice is that the trees still have a lot of leaves on them. Our fall is just getting started. There will be several more weeks of playing in the leaves. Also, I have no explanation for the "tent" over the leaf pile. I took apart some deteriorating edge railing and this seemed to be the right thing to do with the bits.

Again, can you see how much hair got cut? Darci told me this was her sword. (It appears to be an Impossible Dream to get the kids to not pick from plants you don't want them to pick from.)

Just to wind me up, Riley has almost as much fun destroying the leaf pile as creating and playing in it.

That's it - move along...

Darci's haircut and Riley's sweater are gorgeous. But what is that on Riley's head?
