Winter is here!!! (Plus Diaper Savings)

On December 1st we had our first snow flurry that stuck. We have had such weird weather lately that it has surprised me just how fast it can get really cold!!

Also, since Jenalee has showed tons of interest over the past few months in potty training(mainly pooping on the potty) I decided that we are officially potty training starting today. She did really well getting her poop in the if I could just get her to care about peeing in it!!

FYI to anyone interested. If you join Amazon mom and do the subscribe and save you get 30% off diapers and wipes. Also, in most baby magazines their is a 20% off amazon diapers coupon, and this works for training pants too!! The two deals stack!!

This has been a real inexpensive way for me to stock up on diapers at around 8.5 cents a diaper(pampers, huggies size 1/2), and I just got Leah some easy ups for around 14 cents a piece(make sure to use pampers coupon given on the page when ordering for another $1 off). Plus free amazon prime for 3 months(not that I use it, but maybe it will be great for you).

Also, I just got Huggies wipes for around 1.7 cents a wipe(3 refill packs of 216 count each in one pack for $10.15 ). I bought 3 so I would get another month of amazon prime free. Apparantly I should have told Jeremy about it sooner. ;p

I love this, just make sure to cancel your subscription after you receive the item. I put in 2 months frequency to give me ample time to cancel. Hope this helps someone out!!

Primary Program and Thanksgiving

November 14th was our Primary Program. Natalie had a speaking part, and participated in a group song. Brayden and Jenalee went up to sing one song( I love when they have nursery participate). Since it was so close to Thanksgivign we broke out their Holiday dresses and did their hair up in curlers.
Jenalee didn't have one curler in her hair in the morning! But Natalies stayed in and I think worked out great.

She looks so cute!!
This is actually Jenalee on Thanksgiving weekend, I changed their hair pieces from maroon to black. She is too cute too!!
My handsome man is dressed to match and decided this was the pose to strike.

We did Thanksgiving with the Parkinsons. We split up the dishes and planned to eat at 2pm.
Unfortunately there was a power outage in their neighborhood. So we had a fun time trying to cook/fit everything into my stove. It took us a little longer to get done but we at around 4pm and the food was delicious! Especially desert!

Sad we only have a few pictures. Here is Faith and I waiting to eat. We're pregnant...give us a break!!

Here are the kids. Natalie and Alice had matching clothes on. They had so much fun fooling the parents with who was who.
This week Jermy has been away to Florida. He left on Monday. While he was packing Jenalee was following him around, especially lingering in the bathroom.

Jenalee is by far the biggest mess maker I have had. It doesn't matter how many times you tell her no or move her...she will still get into whatever has caught her interest if you give her any privacy. Jeremy literally was away from the bathroom less than a minute and this is what he found.

Vaseline was all over her face and hair. We had to get jeremy to the airport, so I did a quick clean up of her to take him. It took shampooing twice and then combing in dish soap and rinsing to get it out of her hair. What a mess!!

Last bit of costume fun

I went shopping after Halloween and found a few costumes worth buying. So the kiddos had a fun night playing in some of them.

We have already seen brayden as a knight, but I didn't buy him a new costume so he put this on.
Jenalee is actually wearing a dragon costume I got for our new baby boy to be next year. The kids are attacking her!

Natalie is wearing her new pirate outfit and holding her sword. Just guess the total cost...would you believe 85 cents!! Best deal ever.

This was just a cute picture of Jenalee I decided to post.
