Movie Night

Well we decided to take the kids to OPENING NIGHT of High School Musical 3. We got there at 4:40 (started at 5) and there was a line out the door. I was surprised! I guess I have never been to a movie on opening night. We did get in, it was close to a sell out, but I did see a few open seats!

The kids loved and I did to, the signing and dancing in the movie is really good. So I would recommend the movie if you were debating on going to see it. If you haven't watched High School Muscial 1 or 2 you better watch those before you go!

Have a great weekend! Tomorrow we are going to the Pumpkin Farm with some friends, hopefully I remember my camera and will post some pics!

Fall Time

Well today I told the girls I would carve pumpkins with them! We don't celebrate halloween, and so we don't do scary faces on the pumpkins. We just try to have fun, here are some pics of us this afternoon!

The girls carved this one last week with Bill, so I told the girls to sit down by it so I could take a pic, and Snickers (our dog) jumps up there with them and turned and looked right at me when I took the pic. I guess she likes the camera!

Grandma has been gone for 2 weeks and so the girls wanted to put the pumpkin at her house, so here they are sitting on her front porch, with the pumpkin we carved. Ali doesn't think that she will see it. We'll see how long it takes her to see it. Shh, don't tell her!!! Also Ali did the mouth on the pumpkin, she wanted it to look like her, what do you think does it look her missing teeth!? And Chloe well, she is a little grumpy, I think she misses Nana!

Fall is probably my favorite time of the year, with all the trees turning different colors, mums,pumpkins and just the cooler weather. I love to decorate for fall, although this fall I have been extremely busy, so I have not done much but do have a few decorations up. So anyways my mums are in full bloom, so here are our girls with one of my mums! I think the sun was in their faces.

Bus #6

Well last Thursday Jama got to stay all day, well school let out at 12:30 so she got to eat lunch at school.(Normally she only goes half day and gets out at Noon) So anyways this is the first time she got out of school at the same time as the rest of the kids. So I come to pick up the girls (which I do everyday, my kids do not ride the bus, never have, I have no idea what bus # they would ride if they did.) So Ali and Jama get in the car and Jama tells me she got on Bus #6, I said "WHAT", she said "you didn't tell me if I should ride the bus or not, so I decided to ride Bus #6 home" "the bus driver asked who my parents were and he knew you" This is about all I know, oh and Her teacher (who I saw running across the yard) went to get Jama off the bus. I have no idea what she was thinking, luckily the bus driver was paying attention and noticed that this little girl did not belong on that bus.

I asked Jama what she was thinking, and she thought that any bus would take her home. So we explained to her how buses work, so hopefully the next time she won't get on Bus #6!
I called Bill (my husband) and said only Jama, she is a very cute little girl, but sometimes she can be spacey and say some of the funniest things we have ever heard. We got a big laugh out of, so when you see Jama next be sure to ask her about her almost trip on Bus #6!!! We love you Jama you are too cute!

CVS Trip

Well, today on the way home from getting my girls some new clothes ( they desperatly needed them, they were wearing high water pants) we stopped by a CVS. I just ran in and got the following:
1-Blood Gloucuse monitior- 14.99
1-Milk- 2.99

Total 17.98
Used the following coupons
Free Monitor -14.99

OOP- .84
Got back $10.00 ECB
Pretty good deal, so I went out to the car and told my husband to run in and get the same on his CVS card. So he got the following:
1-Blood Gloucuse monitior- 14.99
2-Milk- 2.99x2=5.98

Total 21.97
Used the following coupons
Free Monitior-14.99
ECB used- 5.97

OOP- 0.00 Yes that is right ZERO dollars, I am not sure how that happened because he should of spent at least .80, I couldn't figure out the receipt!
Plus he got back 11.50 in ECB, 10. for monitor and 1.50 for quarterly spending!

He was quite excited as he came walking out of CVS, he wanted to do another transaction! But I didn't have any worked up. So today we got our weekly milk, 3 gallons for .84 that is pretty good!
