Hammin it up

I took this about a week ago. As soon as I pulled out the camera he started smiling like he knew he was supposed to say "cheese."
Its so nice to have a Monday "off." I hope you had a nice relaxing Memorial Day. Jonas and I spent some time at the pool while Daddy slept to get his body conditioned for the night shift. Grandma Barker babysat Jonas tonight so I could attend a cookout. It was a nice break, and Daisy and I had some time together. There were 4 dogs in attendence at the cookout. They all did very well together, I was surprised. They were quite amusing to watch at times. Daisy was the smallest, but always tries to dominate and show she is big stuff.
I experienced a big blessing this past week. Those of you who have had formula babies will understand. I look at the adds in the paper every Sunday to find Jonas' formula on sale. I also use coupons every chance I get. Statistics show that it cost at least $1,500, for formula, the first year of your babies life. Having Jonas on formula was not my choice, it was the Lord's. :-) Jonas' formula runs $27.00 for a large can. I had bought a couple at CVS, on sale, a couple weeks ago for $20.49. (including coupons) Then we went to Walmart and Joe checked the formula there. We knew what is cost already, but he was just doing his brief scanning of prices. Jonas' formula was on clearance for $20.00 and I have coupons for $2 off each can. So, that brought the price down to $18.00 a can!! That is almost a $10.00 savings per can! The expiration date on the cans is 2/08. We stocked up on 4 large cans and that might actually get him through the end of his formula stage. However, I have no idea when I will take him off formula for sure. I was just in awe the whole way home from Wal-Mart. I couldn't believe it. What a blessing!

What a sweet smile. He looks like he can be a real goof sometimes:). Congrats on your blessing, Sarah! Unexpected "nuggets" from heaven bless us when we least expect it. Have a great rest of the week.
