Signing off...

Our Tennessee adventure officially came to an end on March 13, 2010. I moved to Sidney, NE to start a new job on January 10, 2010 and Jeanné and the kids joined me two months later.

Just because our time in Tennessee is over (at least for now), it doesn't mean the blogging...mostly by Jeanné...has to come to an end.

Please join us at "The Good Life."

New Pumpkin

About a month ago we got a Disney family magazine. David found an article on a window decoration that he was absolutely dying to try. I think it turned out great. For a little over a dollar we have a giant pumpkin in our window!!

The spots are the rain! It hasn't stopped in a month I think!

Busy Saturday

Yesterday was a busy day for us. We had a great day. We started out at the grand opening. Then we headed to the Hendersonville Farmer's Market. We got some peaches, corn on the cob, salsa, and gourds.

Last night we cooked up the corn, and also made some soup. Last nights dinner was amazing. We are going to eat the soup today. I can't wait! Enjoy all of the pictures. Janie took them.

Here is David working on the corn. He made it on the grill. This is the first time we tried this. IT WAS REALLY GOOD!!

While David was working on dinner, Janie and I were working on the O'Charley's soup. I was a little worried about it because the recipe the said use two dutch ovens. I don't have one, so I used giant pots. Here are pictures of the potatoes cooking, Janie stirring the soup part and then the final pot of soup. Today when we eat it we will top it with bacon, chives, shredded cheese and parsley.

Alex really enjoyed the corn. Here he is eating his. Janie also took a picture of their gourds, and a flower decoration we got earlier in the day at Dollar General.

Dollar General Grand Opening

Saturday was the Grand Opening of our new Dollar General. Dollar General has made a lot of changes in the last year. This new store is just down the road from our Corporate Office and is going to be our Model Store. It is Awesome. The new concept of wider aisles, better merchandise..its great.

We also have a new theme if you haven't see the video check out this link. They showed this at our Company meeting.

Anyway we were at the Grand Opening in time for the ribbon cutting. They had both the Indy Racecar and the Nascar Car onsite. Gretchen Wilson was there. They also had games, prizes, hotdogs, soda and lots of fun.

When we got in the store we got coupons, a free snuggle bear, and a free Coca-Cola tshirt. Janie had Gretchen sign her tshirt.

Alex enjoyed the outdoor activities more than then being inside. He liked the racecars and racing the pedal car. He won a few prizes too. We came home with a Dollar General grocery bag (one of the reusable "green" bags) a DG pillow, a cup, watch, and several racing pictures.

It was a great day at Dollar General!

"Mom can you please get this?"

So last night we stopped on the way home to do a little shopping. I was looking for more work clothes. We stopped at Ross which is close to our house, and a lot like TJ Maxx. Anyway, as I'm looking around Alex is going crazy. Janie and David are both looking in their sections of the store and Alex is hanging out with me. I have a couple of things in my hand when Alex runs up to me and says, "Mom, Come here" I politely tell him I'm looking at something and what does he need.

"I need you to come here!"

"What Alex?"

"I want to show you something"

"Just a minute,"

"UGH! Mom, will you please get this" He's holding up a pink lace nightie.


"Please, Mom I really like it!"

"Uhm, NO!"

"Please Mom, let me ask Dad!" He runs off with the nightie in his hand to ask David!

I'm about to die of embarrassment when Alex comes back and says

"dad says its okay!"

Absolutely not! Its not my size and I'm for sure not buying something like that, that my four year old picked out. Why do boys have to start so young!!!
