Family Thanksgiving

This year my family got together at Hilton Head (less my brother and his family--we missed you!) It was a wonderful week. The weather wasn't overly great but that was ok b/c we had tons of stuff to keep us occupied like craft projects,
walking the beach (livy did better at not eating as much sand),
making christmas goodies to share (love the faces here),
ladies going to see New Moon
and of course eating thanksgiving dinner.

We had so much fun and much to be grateful for. On to Christmas :)

Guess How Much?

I know that lots of people out there can score big with bargains and couponing--I am trying. This is my small victory today at Publix which I am really starting to like not only because they have great deals but also because they are so customer centric--loading my groceries, helping unbuckle the kids, etc.

So this is what I bought today....

Four boxes of Chex cereal
Three boxes of Special K cereal
One box Honey Maid Grahams
Two boxes Betty Crocker Potatoes
One package Nestle Toll House Morsels
Three packages Nestle Toll House Cookie Dough
Three cans of Hunts Tomatoes
Two jars Ragu Pasta Sauce

Here is my picture of my purchases (for less than $15) that made me have to finagle again with where to store everything.

Our brainy idea of the wagon

on Halloween was thwarted a bit by the in and out motif...something that we had not planned on. So after about 3 houses on our street we traded the wagon in for a stroller. Livy came home before Ian and was thrilled with the treats that came out of her sack.Ians sack was filled with lots of stuff including some full size candy bars. They had a great time out and about in 70 degree weather!
