Looking forward to Thanksgiving.

We are really looking forward to slowing down & getting to spend time with all the family at Thanksgiving. Baxter & Huff absolutely adore their older 1st cousins. I think....what great role models, b/c they are really great kids. Already the boys are playing soccer like 2 of the older cousins do.

These photos were taken at a soccer tournament last year. 10/08

This is Sara Kate & Anna! Cutie Pies! Also, wonderful cousins of the boys....they live in Memphis. The boys really enjoy the girls...haven't spent as much time with them as the older boy cousins BUT I do see more time together in the future. Nashville, HAS to be a destination very soon to see Lucy! I really need to met her...this is technically my 2nd cousin but we say niece....well, b/c her mama & I are onlys. Her big brother Isaac & Gabe are getting so big I 've to got visit them & the Lance & Jason. I mean, how do people keep up with everyone in their families! my word. How do people do this? I suppose plan small trips to visit...right?

Well, let's see we've made it this far through the weekend while spending no money amazing!
It's actually become somewhat of a fun game for me. Jeremy said last night, "Let's have fish tacos"...I quickly remined him that we don't have those ingrediants & can make about 4-5 other meals without buying anything. Don't get me wrong....he makes some MEAN fish tacos...really. But it's just fun to say no & use what you have & pick some stuff out of the garden. Garden is dwindling at this point....bell peps, anchos, jalopenos, cucumbers, green beans, eggplant & couple of lettuce types is all we have left going ...hmmm, that actually sounds pretty good?
I DO KNOW we use to jump at the thought of going to the grocery to get dinner alomst every other night or order dinner, out to that adds up! Can I tell yall ~ we spent $60.00 on grocerys that will last us a week. I am tickled.
Mom will be moving here in about 40 days! Family dinners will be nice.
