From the ultimate Christmas movie, White Christmas: May your days be merry and bright, And may all your Christmases be white... okay, well if you're from the desert like us, you can pretend there's snow.
We went with my brother's family to Legoland about a week before we went to Missouri. I'm just now getting all the photos organized. We rented a condo on the beach and it was the best thing with five kiddos. They were able to have some space and we were able to cook a little and play some games!
This slideshow is a little over 80 photos, so sit back and soak in some summertime fun (even though it was not sunny out and quite cold, hence all the jackets!). I know my summer is fleeting.
There's just been a little too much excitement at this house this past week.
Last Saturday, there was Coleman with his very first stitch. Why do they always need to be on the face?
Today he just got his stitch out and it looks good.
On Sunday night, there is this guy-
who got an intestinal bug and was not able to go at all (two separate issues, two different meds).
The meds worked and he is all better.
Thank God one of my three was doing good- here is Amelia showing off her new skill from yesterday.
She still scream-talks alot but has learned a few signs. We signed with Coleman around this age to help with the frustration of them not being able to communicate and to help our own sanity. So far, she knows signs for milk/juice, all done, and more. Some other important ones I would like her to learn are: please, food/eat, clothes/get dressed.
The other day I caught a major deal at the Metrocenter Toys 'R Us in Phoenix- they were having 40-60% off of everything in the store (thanks Dad for the tip)! The store is relocating and apparantly it was cheaper to sell it off at a major discount than to move all the stuff, which meant major savings for me.
I was able to purchase:
3 birthday presents
a temporal thermometer at half price
Amelia's fav food at 30% off
a few school supplies to donate in the boys' classrooms
the best part of all- Christmas is done for our three kids, stockings included!
Since I work up until December 23rd this year, this is a huge time saver! Kind of hard to spend the money right now but I'll be loving it in a few months. Maybe now I'll have some time to bake instead of shopping in long lines trying to get good deals this year. I'll be making my rockin' rum cake!
