Lots of good stuff

Today we went to the in-laws to visit. We had so much fun. My mother-in-law had a bunch of new stuff to give to the kids and wanted to see us. When we got there she had a big shopping bag full for each child. They got clothes, pj's, books,stickers,etc.

Then they took us out to eat and we had blast. The restaurant was a buffet and the boy loved his brownies. Well he really loved my father-in-laws brownies. He kept taking them. :)

After we were done eating my father-in-law took the van and the boy and Macie back to their house while my mother-in-law, Makayla and I went shopping at one of our favorite stores. Shopping with my mother-in-law is always a blast because she is a hardcore shopper. I almost fainted when they said the total but she stayed calm and told me that they wanted to help us out. We are so blessed to have so many people that love us and want to help us out even when we don't ask for it.

We left with 9 shirts for Makayla, 2 pairs of shoes for her, 2 outfits for Macie, a pair of shoes for her, 2 outfits for the boy, a lunchkit, socks and a Disney cars comforter for the boy to match the cars pillow she bought him the other day. ( It was mostly school clothes shopping for Makayla which is why the kids stuff didn't even out.) Then there was the stuff she had already bought. I think we ended up bringing 10 bags home plus the comforter. It was such a good time.

Last night my hubby surprised me with the book Breaking Dawn. He knew how bad I wanted the final book and went to Barnes and Noble and asked someone what it was called. He didn't really know anything about the series so I can just imagine him trying to ask the sales people there. It was such a surprise and I was so excited. I LOVE that man. I am so incredibly blessed to have such wonderful people around me every way I turn.
