Success!


Today was shopping day for me at our children's consignment sale that is held twice a year. I'm always SO excited...both to see how much of my own stuff I'm able to sell, and what great deals I'm able to find! My mission this year was to get winter coats for Josiah and Callie....and I found both (as you can see, Callie LOVES her new coat)!!! I was able to get a few new games (the Disney edition of "Sorry" - BIG hit!), a couple play clothes outfits for Callie, a pair of school pants for Josiah, a new rescue hero (complete with quad bike) for each boy....it was GREAT! The big ta-da though was that I was able to find a star wars costume for each of the boys. It's going to be a surprise - I don't know WHEN I'll tell them about it, but they are going to be BEYOND excited! :) I'm very thankful for the blessing that this sale is for our family! :)

I missed that sale again! Callie looks adorable in her winter parka. I am looking forward to needing a jacket :)

I missed out again! But only because I was just too lazy to get there! Glad you had some good finds. You need to keep the costumes packed away for a rainy day or when you need a good bribe!!
