it's not cheap!

...these are the words i hear constantly from james whenever i celebrate the low gas prices. he likes to emphasize to me that while the gas here in iowa is LESS EXPENSIVE, we can not let ourselves believe that it is CHEAP because that means that "they've won."
but i was still so excited that it only cost us $35 to fill up our gas tank tonight that i had to document the event!
so here i am pointing out the very LESS EXPENSIVE gas price at our local gas station - the kum & go. (james was a good sport to take my picture in front of the busy street of cars. he must have known when he married me that i came with a few embarrassing moments. :))
and here is cute james pumping our car full of "still not cheap" gasoline.
another fun part of our weekend was a two-day monopoly tournament with our friends jessica and andrew. but they're babysitter could only stay so long , so we ended up wrapping it up before there was an official winner. though i have to say that i was on the path to victory.

and yet again, there are no words to explain this picture accept ridiculously loveable.

I LOVE those pictures! He is so smiley and it is very very cute! I think he may be bigger than Alli now, but I am not sure. I am glad that gas is "cheap" for you guys, hopefully ours will keep coming down to match. We miss you all!

You're looking good! A week ago today I was rocking little Scotty while you and James were getting ready for church. Miss you so much, but the pictures sure do help. Thanks for keeping me updated.

I love the cheaper gas prices. That little Scott is such a cutie. They get big so fast.

I was jumping for joy, almost literally, when it was less than $50 to fill up my tank. Seriously :)

Don't even worry about it, I could tell you had something on your mind. I kind of have a one track mind so that happens to me ALL of the time and I always hope that I don't offend people! New calling? What are you doing?

Oh man! Just today I pointed out to Mike that the gas prices are $2.99... way cheap! It now depresses me to see how much more expensive it still is here. Ugh! You're seriously getting a bargain at $2.39.

Oh my heck, $2.39 for gas!!! That is amazing. It is still around $3.30 her in Utah. You guys are so lucky. How are you guys doing? Looks like you are having a fun time!

funny, i agree with both of you. i was celebrating yesterday that it was less than 40 dollars to fill up my car. just last month it was at least 60. yet, i agree with your husband, they win, uhgg. oh well, at least it is cheaper at the moment. by the way, i think you are so cute. i love that you took a picture of the "cheap gas" sign. you look happy!

$35 for a tank?! That IS cheap! In fact, all US fuel prices are cheap...! ;-) I was excited the other day when our car filled up under the £70 mark!! Yep -- £70! I think that's around $110 :-/ Depressing, huh? ;-) x
