it's here....

The cold of winter, and by 'Cold of winter' I do not mean the frost on the windows and seasonal chill that makes me long for fuzzy socks, no I am referring to the god awful infection that has settled in my lower resp. system. Oh god It's awful. It's not so much the runny nose or congestion, it's the massive feeling of pain with every breath. owe. Should have been actress ( I need an oscar for that bit of literary drama)

So Maddie is for sure coming down with a bit of a cold, but I think it's something other then what I have thank god~knocking on wood.

In all of my sickness we went to Target this morning for some much needed shopping. I picked the kids up each a long sleeved tee and also a sweatshirt and 2 pairs of jeans. I forgot what cute and reasonable priced toddler clothes target has!! While shopping I noticed a trend in toddler girl clothes that I don't like. I keep finding adult fashions for little girls, for instance, a wide WIDE low square neckline with giant rhinestones attached all around or maybe the satin v-neck cami and black cardigan set!!!??? It gets me a little because I want my Maddie to be wearing "little girl" clothes as long as possible!! Ok stepping of the soapbox.

We bought a new set of flatware seeing as ours have been vanishing as of late, Nothing fancy, but nice none the less.

OOHH and Maddie shoplifted!! LOL we were looking in the halloween sale aisle and she must of grabbed them, but we wound up with a set of fake eyelashes (the sparkle ones wink wink) that she had obviously tucked under her coat which was next to her in the cart. When we were loading up the car I noticed them and freaked out and ran and gave them to one of the cart boys who actually said, "if you got out of the store with them, you can keep them...." I just looked at him in awe and informed him that I had no use for sparkle fake lashes.

So thats our day!

I'm going to try and shop for christmas online~

Going through toys!

So this morning started off fairly well, we went to bed with no snow on the ground and woke up with 5 inches, the twins are baffled by this white stuff!

I decided to go through all their toys in the living room today sine they have SO many. We made a a game out of it and have moved about 70% of it out of the room, packed up and will go in their closet untill this spring for a sale. Some of the neater things that I know they won't play with at all we are donating. I explained the whole time we were going through things that we were going to give these to other little ones who would like some new toys. We sang carols and generally had a good time.

Last night my mom and I went out to target and Bought the kids some new winter coats and snow pants. Maddie is pink and purple with flowers and she has lavender snow pants. John got a navy, green, red and yellow plaid (tartan plaid really) jacket and Navy pants. I think he's fairly "dapper" in the outfit! We did some other shopping, I love targets groceries, amazing bargains!! We finished off our target trip to the Starbucks in the front of the store, they have this AMAZING salted caramel hot cocoa, I am thrilled with it, it's so so so so so so so so good. Then we made a nice trip over to Hunan Gardens and got chinese to take home. Lovely evening. By that time I had been up since 5 and it was nearing 10 so I was pretty tired (early work morning)

We are just getting into the holidays around here, I think I am driving everyone nuts because I am trilled with the holidays and just can't wait!

Have to run, maddie is pushing buttons!
