Christmas Celebrations

  We’ve had a fun couple of days of Christmas Celebrations! Usually, when we are all said and done, we have had 6 celebrations between Christmas and New Years. 

The more the merrier, right?! 

Tell that to my tired kids.  🙂 

  No, they loved it!  We can just tell they are done for a bit.  It’ll be nice to spend a few quiet days at home, playing with new things, before we have the next few get-together’s!  

Here are photos from our first few celebrations, I’ll share the rest tomorrow….

Happy Monday Everyone!  As you head out to grab some after-Christmas bargains remember, the best way to double your money is just fold it up and put it back in your pocket! 

  Or if you are me and great deals are next to impossible to walk away from, just don’t go shopping in the first place. 

Ta-da!  What a light bulb moment!  Dale would be so proud to know I just wrote that. 

  So today, I choose to stay home, so we can continue to work towards being debt free.  And let’s be real……I’d SO be out there shopping for Birthday’s and Christmases to come if I could.  With bells on.  Happily swipeing my debit card knowing I was saving myself tons of money in the future. 

<SIGH>  Sometimes its hard to make a right choice.
