My birthday festivities have come to an end. What a week!
I had forgotten until I started to unpack from the trip today that I also went thrift store shopping while I was down in Minot. I love deals and especially on kids stuff since we blow through sizes. I always feel guilty spending full price and then the kids only get a few wears out of an outfit and then it is too small. I always think I could have spent the money on shoes or something, well not something, just shoes!
Speaking of shoes we hit a shoe store when we were down there and got Ethan a few pairs. He has been wearing Robeez his whole life and now that he is standing and I am sure he must be considering walking, we decided it was time for real shoes. My Grandpa said he needed good flat shoes to help his balance, so we got flat shoes. Hmmmm, don't think they went over too well.
A Minot thrift store find.
I had eye balled similar boots here and was unwilling to pay the 25$ price tag. However at this blowout/thrift store I found theses- brand new, for 7$. My kind of deal!
Tonight was my birthday dinner at my parents place. Mom baked me her famous cheese cake, it is so amazing and I porked out till my belly hurt. Mmmmm, I love cheese cake!
Emily comes up with the funniest things sometimes and tonight out of nowhere she opened a bible, saw red type, pointed and said, "these are those words that Jesus said" and put it down.
Now Kaitlyn is going through a faze where she likes to try clothes on. When we where at the Victoria's Secret store in Minot I was collecting bras to try on and she saw what I was doing and collected tank tops saying, "dess (dress) dess, try on" so we went into the change room together. Once in she tried on her 'dresses' and then since I wasn't done she grabbed a bra and said, "try on boobs!" and slipped the stapes over her shoulders, looked in the mirror and exclaimed, "me, boobs"
Anyway, tonight she got into Emily's old collection of dresses and went to town. Here are a few of the outfits she came out to model for us.
