Easton is the cutest little boy we know! He rightfully earned the nickname 'BEASTY' when he was a baby and it has stuck with him. He is such a sweet little mommy's boy and we are ALL at his Beck and call. Easton loves cars, snacks, and playing outside. He is talking up a storm and it seems like he learns something new every single day. He is at such a fun age. We LOVE LOVE LOVE this little guy!


Ainslee is the baby and she just turned ONE!! This child is a handful!!! She hasn't quite grown out of the difficult phase.....that she has been in since she was born, but we still find ways to find her sweet side! Hearing her baby giggles and watching her discover & learn new things make all the whininess......just a little easier to deal with. Aaaahhh, we love this Ainslee Girl!!


Oh our cute little Avery! With her blue eyes & blonde hair, she is one of the cutest 4 year olds around!! This girl is stubborn! She definitely keeps us on our toes. She is quite unpredictable, which makes for a lot of laughs! Avery is our TREAT-FREAK! We can always guess what is on her mind. My favorite thing about Avery is her smiles. She always has one for us no matter what and that makes everyones day just a little better. She attends preschool and says she doesn't like it, but secretly we know she does ;). We are so lucky to have this cute girl in our family! We can't get enough of her.

Kobe is our first child, born in 2004. He was 4 months early and weighed a whopping 1 lb. 4 oz.! We got to be with Kobe for 4 wonderful weeks. I feel so blessed to have been chosen to raise one of God's perfect children. We love him and thank Heavenly Father everyday that he is part of our family. We have a treasure in heaven.

Quinnie just turned 6! She is growing faster than we can keep up with! She loves going to first grade and is doing really well! She picks up on things very quickly and LOVES learning. She's seriously a sponge. Her favorite thing to do is write notes and draw pictures for her friends & family. You should see our continual stack of papers. Quinnlyn is creative & spunky & totally independant. We love her like crazy!

I think I did okay......

Well, I am certainly no Clenece (who gets some really great deals for practically NOTHING), but I think I did pretty good this time (since I had no help). It's so much easier when Clenece does all the work for me.

I got ten 4 packs of Duracell Batteries, Two 16 packs of Duracell Batteries, L'oreal moisturizer (which I now have 2 of since I got one from wal-greens too), 2 Colgate toothbrushes, 2 Pez candy's, and 2 crayola Dual-end Crayons, and 3 gourmet chocolate squares (filler items). All together I paid about $11.00.

I did screw up a bit so that cost me (I would've paid $6 dollars instead) but since I was in the market for batteries I am okay with that.

Now that isn't the only deal I found. The past few days I have had quite good luck.

I got Quinnlyn some Skecher Snow boots (I think they will be handy since we did have our very first snow lasted about 5 minutes) for $12 dollars shipped.

And I found me some jeans at New York & Company for $8.50....for real!!! Now I know they are super flare leg and high waisted but they are actually pretty cute on....and I was thinking for $8.50 maybe my granny could narrow the legs a bit when we go home for christmas.

Okay get ready for this. I bought another Willow Tree Nativity. I know, I know, I already have one...but this one was $124.00 shipped!!!! Regularly $269.99 PLUS shipping. I needed the wisemen, but it wouldn't give me free shipping unless I bought the whole I figured 'buy the whole thing, take out my wisemen, and sell the rest on e-bay or to someone else who wants it'. I woke up this morning to find the deal was over so I am really glad I did it last midnight.

It feels so good to get some great deals (those of you who are into coupons know the feeling). I'm happy tonight.

Clenece said...

WAY TO GO women...where did you end up getting everything in the picture on top? That is a great deal for everything!

I love the boots, and the Jeans...WAY cute! You have done well!

Erin said...

I think you did AWESOME! Clenece is sooooooo good at getting stuff FREE, but your stuff was a great deal. Too bad the nativity deal is OVER!

The Bowler's said...

Good job on all that, you are so good. how much are you selling the nativity for? that's on my wish list! when are you guys gonna be here by the way?

Clenece said...

Yes, I so WISH we had a CVS here. They are as good as Walgreens! I am jealous....

So... I am really going to buy the nativity set from you! Where did you find it for $125?! I don't even care if it doesn't have wise men!
