Couponing to Prague

In November, I started couponing in the effort to afford our Choir Trip to Prague! I am starting an on-line account of my savings as to show that a busy mom can save her family some money if she really tries!

So this is Christmas?

These are our Christmas card pictures. They are a little better than the ones on the actual cards. I tried to be all fancy and do them sepia, but they ended up glowing in the dark;(

Aubrey was an Indian for his Thanksgiving Feast at school. Never try to design a costume with a 5 year old. We went to Hancock's and it took way longer that I imagined it would. He had a certain idea and so did I. We ended up compromising. He wanted an eagle design on the back and I did the best i could to freehand one. Anyway. Who knew a no sew project could get so difficult?

Halloween Night!

We had lots of fun Halloween night. We went to our friends the Thompson's for a party and to trick or treat. We all brought our scariest food. There is always lot of it! I made Rotel adn bone chips (I cut out bone shapes from corn tortillas), "skin graft sandwiches", and moonpies with ghost piped on them.

Aubrey really got into the running up to the door and saying "trick or treat." Oliver manned the red wagon.

Halloween Costumes

Aubrey will be "Flash Gordon." He has no idea who he is, but he likes the color red.Oliver is an octopus. He is beginning to walk, so it is super cute. The tentacles stick out and he doesn't even mind the hood/head.

Fall Festival

We went to Briarwood's Fall Festival last week. Aubrey got his face painted and his hair sprayed with blue and purple color. We had popcorn and cotton candy, even Oliver. It was the first truly autumn day we had in Birmingham. Finally!

Aubrey gave "fives" to the players. He was so pumped!
