November 6, 2008

Yes, gas where we live is now $1.85 per gallon. Is that awesome or what? Every day that I drive by a gas station and notice that the price of gas has fallen again I laugh and give a big cheer. The boys think I am crazy:).

We went to the farm today to see Papa, Mimi, aunts, uncles and cousins. My niece was there with her two little girls. The youngest is only 3 months old and it was the first time I had seen her. She is such a cutie and we all had fun holding her and playing with her. My niece's other daughter turned two over the summer and she is a cutie too. She is talking so well now and she is so tall. She is taller than both of my sons, younger by almost 6 months, and my sons are both in the 80 to 90 percentile range on height....and she is taller.

Anyway, the boys had a great time playing with everyone. A bunch of us drove out in one of the fields and picked up a bunch of pecans from under the trees. They have so many, they don't know what to do with them all. We really need to go back and get more of those. They are delicious. The boys had fun picking up pecans and also eating them. They each had two rides on Papa's four-wheeler. Nick even got to cross the creek on the four-wheeler, which was exciting. They also each got to go on a long tractor ride, which they loved. I was in the house and could hear the horn on the tractor beeping the whole time they were riding around out in the field and around the pond.

We also had a wonderful meal of homemade stew, delicious bread rolls and a fantastic dessert, all cooked and prepared by Mimi. I ate too much but it sure was yummy. The boys enjoyed all of it too.

Both boys fell asleep on the way home, which was much needed. Overall, we had a wonderful day out on the farm. I really love this time of year. Today we had clear blue skies, lots of sun and wind and it was just a bit chilly....a perfect fall day.

And all the better when we are paying $1.85 per gallon of gasoline:). We had better enjoy it while it lasts because it probably won't last long.

We had a great day too! It was really nice getting to spend the day with you and the boys! Can you believe that Alli did not take a nap? YAY me! Hopefully she will sleep well tonight...
