My Very First Thanksgiving












Well, it was my first Thanksgiving and all in all, I think it was a hit. I got to hang out with Grandmama and Grandaddy and Maw-Maw. I also got to see Aunt Bethany and Uncle Tim. Aunt Bethany's family came too. It was a full house! I did some nappin' while I was there but I was able to join the table for a bit of Thanksgiving fun. I really enjoyed playing with the toys on the floor. Hannah kept taking those balls from me. I don't think she realized just how much I love those balls. I made sure I kept my eyes on them. I wanted to be the first one to them if she dropped them.

On another note. . . today was our Monday Madness (that's what I call it because madness it is. I mean, I barely get in a morning nap on these days due to the grocery shopping). Mommy wanted me to point out a few of our deals that she was so pleased to have found. At CVS we took advantage of the Huggies deal. We bought two packs of diapers and three containers of wipes for about $22. Not too bad. But, better than that, we got Similac formula for $12!! That was a steal!

Three highlights from our trip to Walmart: We got TWO bags of Green Valley Steamers frozen veggies for .25 each! Hannah got her own special Dora the Explorer yogurt 6 pack (something she NEVER gets) for .77! Finally, we got two boxes of Betty Crocker instant potatoes for about .17 each! Mommy found these deals thanks to a few of the blogs she visits.

Those were our best deals of the day. And we managed to stay under our $100 budget..with two packages of diapers and formula!

It's such a high, isn't it? Shopping with coupons & sales! Who knew it would be this fun...I would have started a long time ago :) I've managed to get our weekly down to about $60-80, and that's with toddler foods & diapers!!

how do you get these deals? seriously! I don't get it! I cut coupons, but save only like $3 a week!

even Hannah is benefitting from the coupons, her very own yogurt.
