Random Thursday

Well, I didn't mean to take that long of a break from blogging, but time slipped away from me once again. I guess in a way things have been a little slow/monotonous, so that leaves little to write about without my blog coming across as slow. I guess it's good that things haven't been too crazy around here, but it is nice to have a change of pace every now and then from the typical day of keeping the girls from being too wild or from destroying the house!

We're getting ready for a weekend of going to bonfires and having one ourselves, so it should be a fun weekend.

 It's looking like it'll be a chilly weekend and probably a little damp from rain, so good for having a bonfire, other then the girls will probably manage to get extremely dirty...oh well, they somehow managed to look like they had eaten dirt the last time we had a bonfire, so why not add a little mud this time!

The park has been a frequented place lately...

Making the girls run off some energy! :)
 I really don't know what I'll do when it's too cold for the girls to be outside much....I guess just thick winter coats and boots! :)

We've also been doing some goodwill shopping. The first time it was cold enough for the girls to need to wear pants I discovered that all of Abigail's pants were too short, so I figured that needed to be remedied soon now that fall is officially here. I've never done much goodwill shopping, but I'm discovering it can be a good way to find nice stuff without having to pay a ton. Like this little jean jumper from Classic Pooh...
It's so cute, perfect condition, and only two dollars!

Then there was my best find of the day...
 a Hanna Andersson skirt! 
When I saw it I thought it was so cute, so I looked to see the size and saw the namebrand and knew I had to get it even if I had to wait for Ella to be big enough to wear it! It was on sale so I paid one dollar for it! Those of you who know that brand know that's an awesome it's in perfect condition too! :)

So, yes, I'm kind hooked on the goodwill shopping. :) I kept seeing all these cute little newborn/baby stuff though, but I kept telling myself we didn't need it cause I still have so much baby stuff from the girls, but they had a lot that was pretty tempting to pass up! I did get multiple pairs of pants and shirts for Abigail, so she's got a good start for this winter. :)
