It's been a special day…

... and I don't mean special in a good way! Yesterday I sprayed lotion in my hair instead of hair spray. I did it right as we were about to walk out the door too so I had the pleasure of enjoying greasy lotion hair all through the afternoon and evening. Special! Today has been just as great.

Enjoying holiday gifts and the miracles of life..

On December 26th we headed into town to pick up some accessories for our new goodies and we needed to exchange a gift I got N, he needed a smaller size belt.. While exchanging the belt we found him 3 pairs of pants that were each under $10.00 and I got about 6 shirts that were under $5.00. The after Christmas sales were awesome!

Enjoy the finch video and have a good...
