Soup of the day

Catching up

It seems like so much has happened since my last post but now that I sit down to write about it, I can't remember everything. We have just recently gotten back from visiting Will's sister and family and our new niece, Carley, in Tampa. It was a great trip! We always enjoy spending time with Scott, Amy, Tyler, Taylor, Reagan, and Carley (the list is longer!) Will went to work 2 of the days so that was no fun for me, but I'm glad he could help Scott out with some of the orders. It really makes us realize how blessed he is to get to work at home. The twins spent time with friends and their aunt so we didn't see a whole lot of them. They are really growing up and I know they are soon going to be uninterested in hanging out with their aunt and uncle. We spent a lot of time with Reagan and Carley though. Reagan really loves Callan until he needs her out of the floor so he can play pretend baseball on the rug! Me and Amy took some fun pics of C and C in their matching strawberry sleepers and in their diapers and halloween hats. Very cute! We also took the girls to the mall where we realized how much life has truly changed as we tried to manage 2 small babies, pretzels, a cookie, shopping bags, strollers, and drinks! At least the food wasn't harmed!
We returned Tuesday to Bunco, lots of laundry and life full speed as always. Wednesday we went to the Nissan place to look at a Camry and ended up buying an Altima (Friday). We traded our Camry in and left with a silver Altima just like we had when we got married (before we started Dave Ramsey and sold the car to get out of debt). It is nice to be able to have a car like it again. We always did love the Altima...bullet is her new name!

Today is Saturday and after Upward soccer, Will flew with Dr. Wilson, Chad and another friend to the Alabama game. My mom came up to visit for the day and went with me and Callan to McGee Farms with several people from class. It was really fun! It was so neat to see how all of of our lives have changed with these sweet babies. The kids seemed to like it too! We got some cute pictures. Okay, everybody but me. Callan wasn't in the best mood. I was kind of frustrated because the whole time we were there she made that little snorty face (don't act like you haven't seen her do it 24/7). Then I finally realized, that is her face. She makes that face all the time so we need to cherish that funny face and know that it won't last long. I ended up getting 2 or 3 that I liked and I ordered some Halloween cards tonight. I'm excited to see them. Since we didn't get professional pics of her made, I am spending a little money on ordering holiday cards to send out.
This next week will be deep cleaning for Supper Club and finishing up making Callan's food for the next couple of weeks. We spent $40 on fruit at Wal-Mart (mostly for Callan) but soon I'm going to figure up how much money I'm saving by making my own and post it for you all to see! Have a good week!


  • I LOVE her little snorty face! It's hard to get pictures of them at this age! I wish we could've made it to the Pumpkin Patch, but I took Bonnie to Punkin' Day instead and she had a blast! I know y'all had fun!

  • I'd love to know how much your saving. And think of how much healthier it is. You might have to do some teaching to me in a few months!

  • I would love to know how much you are saving as well. I am a numbers person so that would be great to know! I love all the pics! We had a blast.

  • Keep us posted on how much you save. We may need to know this info in the future! Callan's snorty face is one of the most adorable things I have ever seen. It is just "her face", for now, it won't last forever. Bella had one like it when she was a little baby and she did it in EVERY picture but it only lasted a couple of months. Then I realized that it was so cute and I was glad that I got the pictures because I wanted to be able to remember that little phase in her life that she went through :)
