Stockin' Up on Cookies

I went in to Kroger today to buy some refrigerated packages of cookies since they were on sale and I had coupons for $1 off of 2 packages (the deal going on through next Tuesday is their BUY 4, Save $4 Promo). When I went to that section, there was a coupon machine spitting out coupons for $1.25 off of 2 packages of cookie dough. Score!
SOOO, I kind of ended up with 8 packages of cookie dough, which ended up being a good thing, BECAUSE, Pillsbury and Kroger are currently running a promo where a catalina spits out when you buy a certain number of participating items (i.e., Buy (4) and get a $1 catalina off your next order, buy (5) and get $2, buy (6) and get $3). So, on top of my great cookie deal, I ended up with a catalina for $3 off my next shopping order!

Cost per package = $0.87 and that's not taking into account that I have $3 off my next order!

If you run out to get this deal, remember this: to get the sale price on the dough, you have to buy in multiples of 4!

Guess I'll be bringing cookies to home team tomorrow night!!

I'm a LumberJACK

For Halloween, Jack dressed up as a lumberJACK. Not the SFA kind, because he's an AGGIE, but the kind that cuts down trees. Since we're a little tight on the budget this year, we had to make do with what we had.

He already had the plaid shirt and jeans. That was easy. I found the boots as a resale shop for $5. I made his suspenders for $4. I got his hat at Old Navy when they were having their 'Buy one adult item, get one child item free' promotion (which means I got me a tank top!). And Josh made the axe out of some stuff he had in the garage. Looks real, huh? I promise it's not sharp.
We really wanted to draw a beard on him, but he drools like no other and I figured he'd just smear paint all over his face. One less thing to have to worry about.

First Haircut (Kind of)

Josh and I started giving Jack haircuts when he was about 9 months old... we'd sit him in his bumbo out in the backyard (just in a diaper), cut his hair and hose him off. :)

We decided he needed one GOOD first haircut before he had his 18 month pictures done. So, we went to Cool Cuts for Kids. He wasn't sure what to think.I think he's wondering who this lady is.
He got to drive a taxi cab. There wasn't room for passengers, though.But then, he took a turn for the worse.I guess it took longer than he had expected. Oh well.
I think we'll go back to me cutting it, though. It was expensive!!
