Cutting down our dead tree

We had a dead tree in our backyard that needed to be cut down before it blew down in a storm. Peg and Dick came down to visit and brought their new chainsaw. The help and the saw made the chore of getting rid of the tree a lot easier than if it had just been Bill, Giselle, and a hand-saw. :)

The yard looks a LOT better now and we're really looking forward to planning out flowerbeds and a vegetable garden this spring.

Giselle told Peg to "Act tough." This is the pose she got.

This tree's gonna fall over before Bill's done reading the book!

Hard work is fun with the right company

"Can't we just leave it in the alley?" "No, Bill, you have to cut it up!"
