This week has been good, it kind of got busy but still was good. Today was a good day. I've been thinking about Christmas and how it sneaks up on me and even though we do not go overboard with gifts it still gets expensive. So, I went to Target today (and Walmart actually) and headed to the clearance aisles. I got the kids some of their Christmas gifts for 50% or more off...NICE!! I'm going to keep checking out the clearance and the Thanksgiving sales and try to be done with all my Christmas shopping EARLY and cheaply (don't know if that's a word but you know what I mean).

We were invited to a birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese this afternoon. Our friend, Emily, had her birthday there. Addy has been looking forward to it all week. My kids love that place, all 3 of them, Levi included. I found myself giving Levi the evil eye multiple times when I realized he was playing the games and Keegan was MIA. I do tend to get a little addicted to certain games there myself, especial DEAL or NO DEAL...yes they have it there. Anyway, we had a great time.

We're heading out to Austin tomorrow morning. I'm excited about seeing the Self Family and checking out their church, Free Chapel. I'm also excited about being away, even if it's just for a couple of days. Our family needs some "away" time. We get really caught up in church stuff which is okay but it will be nice to enjoy being together and not thinking about anything else.

I've also been thinking of Halloween and scheming for outfits for our family. I'm one of those geeks that likes to be "themed." So, Addy wants to be Ariel (Little Mermaid). I found Keegan a lobster costume from the consignment sale last week so he's Sebastian. I am not sure what Levi and I can be. I think we might be pirates. That's the easiest thing I've come up with. Any ideas?? I need cheap costume ideas people. Let me know.

Have a great weekend!!

I'm really proud to have completed the Punkinhead's Christmas toy shopping. Either used toys from consignment or severely discounted Target deals (I check every week). The only thing not purchased yet is the play kitchen we're still saving for.

I LOVE the mermaid-lobster idea. That's going to be really cute.

Have fun in Austin. Prayers for safe travels!
