Its that time of year that large families just love. Here are just some of the highlights of what we used with the money Uncle Sam has blessed us with...
As I type, the kids are jumping on this (15ft) in the dark as my patient hubby tries to assemble the netting. God bless him!
After endless hours searching for the perfect bedspread/quilt/comforter/duvet for my bed, I finally decided on this one... one that I have seen a gazillion times before on my fellow blogger friends blog at PINK SLIPPERS
My girlie girls got a whole lotta spring clothes at their fav store. Between sales and coupons I walked away with a huge bag full for only $100 PLUS $80 of store credit and Justice bucks. Can't beat that!!
SHOES! All children got much needed shoes, sandals, sneakers etc... its the small things!
Last but certainly not least.. savings! We shoved a decent amount in savings for emergencies. It sure does feel nice to have that cushion. Prayerfully it will grow and grow and grow.
Our tax "extravaganza" has not ended. Small things still need to be done. Zoo membership for homeschool, a new picnic table for the backyard.
I discovered Staples and have spent the entire afternoon labeling and sorting everything that sat still. I won't even mention the million and one things I laminated!!! Oh boy. Pure homeschool mom heaven.
Christian books also received a small chunk of money. I ordered all new school books and some books for me. A new chore chart is in place, new daily schedule, another wipe off board and a whole lot more. I take my resolutions seriously!!
Unfortunately my bible reading has suffered. I will catch up though. I PROMISE! I won't let you down. But I must leave you now. The superbowl is about to begin and I have a whole bucket of wings from Quaker Steak and Lube just screaming my name!!!
