OK I feel the need to brag alittle =)

I'm so PROUD....

--- That my Nicholas has gotten all smiley faces at Preschool this year and gets in the "treasure box" on a weekly basis now

--- That my sweet little girl has about mastered sitting up and crawling

--- That I have been able to successfully breastfeed Emily for 6 months, here's to another 6!

--- That my husband is just so awesome and has the biggest heart!

--- That I got into a pair size 6 jeans this weekend (and I could still breathe)

--- That I am DONE with my Santa shopping and only have left the secret Santa's to get!

--- That I have the best family in the whole wide world!

My SIX Month Old

WOW its hard to believe my baby girl is 6 months old already! Time is going by too fast. I wish I could just stop the clock and keep her little awhile longer. She has grown and changed so much over the past few months. I wanted to share some pictures of our six month old baby girl, showing off some things she has learned in her six months!

LOOK I can sit all by myself

I can also get up on all fours. I have crawled a few steps, but Im getting the hang of it!

I LOVE to stand up w/ some help from Mommy and Daddy

I Love these two boys so much, and they would do ANYTHING for me!

And I can give attitude when I'm tired of taking pictures =)

The "Coupon" High

So in the past (many times) I have attempted to clip coupons and "save" money! But I never really got it and couldn't for the life of me figure out how people actually saved money doing it..

Well recently a friend of mine (online) told me about a sale Target was having. She had went to Target and purchased 3 Wii games, each costing $14.99. She ended up walking away paying only $22.50 for all three Wii games by using a coupon and taking advantage of the store special.. So off I go, two coupons in hand. I walked away with 6 Wii games for "Santa" and only paid for 3 of them.. This was my first time experiencing the "coupon" high!

So I began researching and found an amazing site. It broke down how I could save by using coupons with store coupons with store specials, etc... IN the past couple weeks I have managed to save over $300!!!!

Here is my last purchase using my coupons! (Purchased today)

Total Cost BEFORE coupons: $74.64

I paid ONLY: $26.20 Before Tax!

COUPON HIGH BABY - I'm hooked!

Happy Halloween

I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween! Ours was a blast! The kiddos had been sick for about 2 weeks with bronchitis and I was just praying they would get better in time to go trick or treating. To our luck they did and it even stopped raining long enough to get a few pictures and hit about a half dozen houses and rack up on some candy. Justin had a blast as Darth Vader and Nick was a super cute Batman! Emily joined in the fun with her warm little fleece bunny costume! After the trick or treating fun we had a blast handing out candy to other kiddos. Then we watched the new ice age movie and then the adults played scategories and had some warm apple cider! We could have not asked for a more fun night! Here are a few pictures of our little spooks!
