Well, we woke up this morning to a CHILL!!! We went from a hundred degree weather to 50's in a days time. I was freezing, and so were my kids. After living in such warm climates for the past 5 years, I found I was very unprepared for this. Miyah doesn't even have a jacket, or long sleeved shirt! The only thing I found for her to wear was her brothers long sleeved onesie.
I decided we needed to go clothes shopping, so I took the kids to the outlets (an outdoor mall). I put Miyah in a size 6 month green camouflage jacket of Easton's, and took off. Two people asked me if I had twin boys. I explained why Miyah was dressed like a boy to the first person, then lied to the second person and said that I indeed had twin boys. Well, after freezing for two hours, I came home empty handed and stressed! There was nothing! Everything was overpriced and ugly! Besides being poorly dressed, Easton and Miyah both drank large sippies on the way to the mall, and pee'd right through their diapers in the first ten minutes of being out, so not only were they freezing, but they now had wet pants on, which resulted in no pants. I was carrying Miyah around with a blanket wrapped around her as an outfit.
Anyway, I did score one good deal today. Just last night I was searching around the internet, and putting a Christmas list together for the babies. One thing I had decided on was a bounce and spin zebra because I knew it was something Easton would especially love. I had seen the commercials, and Nick and I both commented on how Easton would love the toy. Anyway, I searched and found several last night, and the best price was $45, so I added to the list. Well then today I did something I had NEVER done before, and went to a community garage sale for the heck of it, and to my surprise, what is one of the first things I saw??? Nothing other then the bounce and spin zebra a woot woot!!!!! I looked at it, and it looked brand new! The lady said it had only been used once (which I'm sure was a lie), but it truly looked like it had only been used once. I asked how much, and she said five dollars, so I took it! Then I came home and spent an hour rubbing it down with bleach, but after that, I had the two happiest kids in the world!!!
