For the past two days, I had the privilege of volunteering at my children’s elementary school. In our small, rural community it seems that everybody knows everybody. However, after spending some time with the students, it became very clear to me that I don’t know as many people as I thought I did. While I won’t share any real names or personal information, I do want to tell you about the lessons spending time with these awesome kids taught me.
Move Over Thanksgiving! Christmas is coming!
I don't know about you, but I LOVE shopping on Black Friday! For me and my sisters, it is a tradition that always proves to be a great time. We literally leave at midnight and get to our favorite shops around 1am. (Did I mention we live in the country?) Lines? Nope. Just pure no-kids shopping, super deals, and no headaches (until at least 5am). We eat breakfast two times in the middle of the night and then grab lunch before arriving home just in time to lay down for a nap with our littles. The awesome thing is that with a good plan in hand, I can usually knock out my entire Christmas list in one clean sweep. However, since my money tree isn't producing as well as I'd like, I have to pay close attention to what I am buying and how much I spend. Read on to find out how I shop for my four favorite little people.
