Priceless...

Today I worked and left Gunner in charge of all three kiddos. I came home and Junior was still in his pajamas, Abs was wearing black and white checked pants with an orange shirt and Em, ever the fashion diva, was color coordinated down to the hoodie that she has to be wearing at all times (Thanks Uncle David!). He got some things accomplished, but his mom also had to make two trips over to help him out. The guy cracks me up--he can go to war, but three little kids are overwhelming!

After two weeks off of work I had a lot to catch up on. I finally got it all done and then my mom and I met my sister and her boys for mexican food at our favorite restaurant. Enchilada Wednesday! After missing a week of our mexican fix, the food was exceptionally good today.


Then we ran by a few stores to pick up a few things that we needed. My mom needed medicine from walmart and ummmmm.......I think that was it. After 6 hours (and three stores) we ended up with this (minus the bag in my hand and the two bags in the backseat). The time we spent together collecting crap we didn't need was priceless!

At least we didn't stock up on wrapping paper this year! I better get busy using all these things I bought though...

When the girls say shopping, I just step aside and wait at home. If not I would be the one with deep pockets, or so C8 thinks.

Happy New Year! We loved the Christmas cards and now I feel as if I know you so much better now, though I don't really know why. I lucked out without doing too much after Christmas shopping, I had enought stuff to bring home and am still unpacking the Tahoe even though I've been home three days now (and I don't have kids just a dog!)
Well, it sounds like you guys had fun. I'll stop by later ...
