Thanksgiving Shopping....

Just got back from Wal~Mart supercenter with all four kids to do our Thanksgiving food shopping. $199 dollars!!!!!!!!!!!! Um, the turkey itself was only 10....how do I go about explaining this to my very frugal husband???? Ha! I just wanted to get on here and commend my lovely children. I got one of those carts with the blue seats on the front for the two babies and then Ben and Chloe stood on either side of me. And away we went. I was so proud of my kids. I said "don't talk to me, I need to think." And so they didn't...well, for the most part. Then we got home, and the three eldest got busy bringing in the load! I came in and checked the internet lest something majorly exciting happened....it didn't. But you never know. And then, we cleaned out the fridge, reloaded, unpacked, straightened the pantry, loaded the dishwasher and all the kids had the first candy cane of the season. I thought it would be appropriate since we bought Thanksgiving dinner today.....And so, off to bed soon, but first, I smell something....I think it might be Ty who is standing beside me. GREAT.

Isn't shopping with kids 'exciting'???? Glad your trip went well you brave woman! :)

stopped over here from blogfrog. I love this post. It's amazing how fast one can spend money at Walmart. It's strange that the main part of the meal was $10, yet the rest $189...how many people are you cooking for? Have a GREAT thanksgiving!

Gotta love Wal-Mart! And way to go, Kids! The other day I went with my three youngest. The man at the deli counter might've been as old as Methusaleh, and moved about as quickly too! Oy! We had just started shopping and you should've seen my kids hopping on all the tiles on the floor. You know? I let them! I figured it was the deli's fault that my kids had ants in their pants so soon! Ha!
