I love finding super deals! :) Aaron and I had decided not to exchange presents unless we had extra money. Well I had a little bit of money to work with. Aaron needed a wallet and backpack. The backpack he has been using for school is a free one his company gave to him and it was starting to fall apart. I went to Kohl's tonight and found one backpack in the entire store. The tag on it said $50. I knew it had to be on sale a little bit. I walked over to the scanner and I was praying, "God please help me get a good deal on this backpack." It scanned for only $5. I couldn't believe it! It is a Nike Air backpack. The straps have special air pockets to give your shoulders support. I found a nice wallet for him for $15. So two nice gifts (and he needed them both) for $20.
I love receiving yummy gifts! :) One of the families at Co-op gave me Cocoa Chips. What are Cocoa Chips? Milk chocolate covered potato chips. You would not think these would be good, but they are delicious!
I love my new comforter! :) My mother-in-law gave me money for Christmas and she wanted to give it to me early to catch the sales. I found this comforter set at Target that I love! We call it our luxury bed. My grandmother also gave me money for Christmas and with it I bought a microfiber sheet set, which is so soft and warm. (Also from Target, on clearance.)
I love this picture! :) Luke's preschool class dressed up and took pictures. None of them look too excited to be doing this, but it is still cute. Luke was Joseph. When I took a picture of it the flash made a light right where baby Jesus is. Jesus is the light of the world, right?
I love Christmas decorations! :) Here are a few of our decorations.
I love this carousel! :) I was thrift shopping with my Mom and sister, one of our favorite activities, and we found this carousel. It works and plays Christmas music. My mom got it for me, I don't think she paid more than $10 for it. I think the carousel is really neat, but also it makes me think of special times with Julie and Mom.
