If you're familiar with Old Navy and you have one of their cards, you know about their "Stuff and Save" sales. You usually get 30% off whatever you can stuff into one of the totes that they give you. Well today, they had a special bag for the first 50 customers and you could get 50% off whatever you fit into the bag! I was so there, my boys are running out of pants and RJ especially needed some clothes. So I showed up 10 minutes early, and when I encountered the line that was already there, I almost turned around and went home. But, I decided that I could stand in line for 10 minutes "just in case." I'm so glad I did! I think I was number 45. Of course, the special bag was a bit smaller than the regular totes, but I was able to shove so much into it, I'm very proud of my stuffing skills! The checker actually laughed when he realized how much stuff I had in it, and when he was putting it all away for me, he filled my bag plus another large shopping bag! So here's what I got for $138.... 2 winter jackets, 3 pairs of jeans, and 10 long sleeve shirts, woot woot!

Every year our house gets "Booed" and it is so fun for the kids. If you don't know what this means, someone anonymously leaves treats at your door and you have to do the same for someone else. It's a great FHE activity. Usually when we are Booed, it's a small bag of candy or brownies, or something simple. This year we were Booed good! Someone left this fantastic basket on our door. It had a cute halloween bowl, 3 decorative halloween plates, glow sticks, glow bracelets, glow in the dark stickers, halloween socks, ice cube trays, candy, silly string, and that is not even all! I can't even remember everything, it was so much. We felt great pressure in our Booing adventures. I think we did a good job, but I can't show you what we did, because it might have been you who received it, and it's supposed to be anonymous! And for FHE this week, we made this giant pumpkin cookie. And even with my lacking artistic skills, I think it turned out cute enough, and the kids were SO excited. :o)

Our ward has a trunk or treat every year and it is always a big hit! This year did not disappoint. Except for the party-pooper dad in our family, we all dressed up. I didn't take any pictures at the actual event, but here we are looking good and ready to go! Cutest clown ever!

80's Music!!! I was feeling a little blue for a couple of days. In preparation for our 80's themed bunco night, I blasted 80's music all day long, and I felt better! It brought me happiness. And even better, if you can convince 10 of your friends to dress up 80's style, it's completely perfect!
