Yard Sale

Saturdays are yard sale days for Mommy and Jared. Jacob takes a nap for Daddy while he gives a voice lesson at our home. If we don't go to them we are usually hosting one! This past Saturday was a lot of fun. There were several close to home which was nice. Here are things we got...
Jared's Loot
He got a SuperFriends Cartoon VHS for 1.00, which he has watched like 20 times so far!
He also got a watergun (.50) and car (.25) that runs by itself (I think it is a Spiderman toy).
Jen's Stuff
I got a large basket that I will use for cleaning up toys for 1.00, a medium-sized basket with a liner for 2.00 that I will use to give a care package for a friend.
Also pictured: Holly Hobbie plate - Christmas 1974 1.00
Floppy hat from Talbots - .25
Pink hat for Mom - 2.00
4 kitchen gadgets for .25 ea.
Curling iron 3.00
Star nightlight for Joanna 1.00
Purse picture frame 1.00
8 Christmas placemats which are reversible for 1.00.
Yard Saling is soo worth it to me. For example, I got a replacement pitcher for an Iced Tea Maker for $0.50 that we got as a wedding gift in 1999. The old pitcher had cracked and eventually broke, so I used a gift card to buy a whole new unit from Target after Christmas. Well, that new pitcher melted from the dishwasher. I had checked online for a replacement but it would have cost the same with shipping as it would have to buy a new one. I came home with the pitcher and said to Mack,"This is why I yard sale!!" waving it in the air. He was happy because he loves Sweet Tea when the soda runs out!

Eli's 1st Birthday

Jen, Jared, and Jacob went to Eli's 1st birthday party on Tuesday. These pictures are from Renee's Facebook album, and though they were there for Eli's party, he isn't in any of these pics...

When I first glanced at this picture, I thought it was one of Renee and me from about 30 years ago. The carpet may have had something to do with it.
