For The Love Of The Game

 We are living, breathing, eating football around here.  This is Emmett and my "other son" Cody, (our neighbor) teaching Nolan a thing or 2 about football. 

Emmett and Cody are playing actual tackle football for the Cavemen White Pop Warner here in town, and are very competitive when it comes to playing the game (I promise to post pictures of them in full gear soon).  However, the best thing about watching them play this day was the fact that they decided Nolan was going to win this particular game.

They knew I was taking pictures of them and they carefully planned out their fake tackles.  It was like watching a movie, how precise they were in their reinactments.  Nolan had a blast, won the game, and these pictures couldn't have turned out better.

The Adventures of Grandma Pickles

Nolan calls Jackson "Mr. Jenkins." We don't know where he got it from and in true Nolanism fashion, we don't question it. We simply go about our daily lives trying to never forget Mr. Jenkins.

While my mom was here, she asked for a special name.....

and Grandma Pickles was born.

From Green Thumb to Kitchen Pantry!

I would L.O.V. E. to take credit for this amazing garden,
but it belongs to my in-laws. Ours is producing enough to keep us entertained,
but when Sy's parents mentioned that they were "overtaken" by veggies,
we simply replied with a "Be right over!"

Not to toot my own horn, but I have become VERY creative
with the types of dishes you can make with
tomatoes and spaghetti squash.

Helloooo SALSA!
Big shout out to BFF Nicole, for teaching me the
tricks of the trade!
