Another shopping trip!

My Smiths Trip. I spent $21 on all this!

Walgreens trips (What a pain but worth it!) $4.50

Target trip $5.55 yeah that is right $5.55

My free 25 prints from walgreens

This is how excited Felicity is about couponing!!

This couponing trip was not for the faint of heart. I ran into town with Alexia for some stuff for the primary carnival on Saturday and figured while I was in town I might as well go shopping at a few of my favorite stores for deals. My target trip was great. The coupons beeped but she still approved them and I gave her a TON of coupons. The walgreens trip was a NIGHTMARE!!! The checker was NOT helpful and I had my whole plan together but it didn't work out. I am on the floor with Alexia crawling around in Walgreens reorganizing my coupons to get the good deal. I would NOT advise a beginner couponer to do this...I was confused and flustered and even sweating(HAHAH)! So I left the first walgreens and went to a different one about 2 miles away and had a way more pleasant experience!!! Some days it is worth it and some days it definately is NOT worth it. Today was frustrating but when I got home and saw what I got for so little I realized it definately was worth it!
I know I'm a geek but I had to share.

Some random pics from the summer

Our little family

Grandma and Grandpa come to visit

Making yummy brownies with daddy

Playing in the sandbox

Everyone attack daddy! The girls love it when daddy gets home from work. Alexia has started bouncing up and down and squealing every time Trevor walks in the door from work. It is so cute to watch them with their daddy!

My sleeping babies

There is something so angelic about a child sleeping. No matter how crazy the kids are and how bad of a day I am having, once they fall asleep...I just love them to pieces. They truly are so special to me. Our little angels(while they are sleeping of course).

June and July posts below

I am a total slacker and am super behind on my blogging. I will try to catchup over the next week but enjoy the old posts anyway!

Playgroup at the Johnson's

We had some friends come into town so we had an impromptu play group at the Johnson's house. This is a special treat for the kids. They love playing with Dolly, the dog, swinging, playing in the sand and whatever else there is to do. This is one of my favorite yards in all of Fernley with all of the huge trees and beautiful flowers. The other day we flew into Columbus Ohio and as we were landing I told Felicity to look outside at all of the trees. Her response was...Mommy we are by Marilyn's(Johnson) house! Not quite but I got a little giggle out of it.

I just love this pic of Felicity

The Cards from Bend come to visit

Grandma and Tayven

Felicity and Grandpa

Felicity on the new 4 wheeler

Going for a ride

This is Felicity's standard wink. You gotta love it!

Trent, Lorrita and the kids came to visit for Tayven's birthday. We had such a fun time hanging out together,riding the bikes and the new 4 wheeler. We even had a little slumber party in grandma and grandpa's garage. We don't get to see them as much as we would like to. Thanks for making the trip guys!

More pictures from the visit

Trevor and the girls dirtbike riding. I think Trevor already has two fans. Alexia LOVED the dirtbike and would get mad whenever we would take her off.

Lorrita and Tayleigh. We are so thankful Lorrita came into Trents life. She has truly been a blessing in all of our lives especially Trent's!!!

Trent and Alexia. Alexia was attached to Trent the whole visit. I am afraid Alexia is a total daddy's girl. Trevor loves it!

The Card cousins. The girls!

I love this pic of the girls. Felicity just loves her cousin Tayleigh.
