For Grandpa Ron

I got Ava some new monkey scissors to do art projects with. She was really excited and kept saying, "Thanks Mama, these make me so happy. I like my own scissors." After she cut her paper pictures out she asked to go out on the porch.

This is what happened:

My dad would be so proud. She got his natural pruning skills.

Now every time she gets hold of those scissors she's out there hacking away at the bush.

Terrific! And just in time, too - 'cause tomorrow's a holiday.(9/11; it's kind of a holiday. Close enough.) And what do we do on holidays?.....That's right, Lisa. Yard work!
She makes me PROUD!

I don't remember Matt trimming the bushes, only peeing on them!!!

I don't remember Matt ever trimming any bushes WELL. I remember some hack jobs!

I wonder to what Matt is referring exactly.
