Lots of good stuff to share!

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! We went to Disney, but I am waiting to post pictures when I get my mother in law and my sister in laws pics.....we had a great time...but came home very tired from rushing around:) I think next year we've all agreed to nosh out on turkey and dressing *and 7 layer!* around the house....MINE! Because, YES....next year, it's my turn....and hopefully I will get to do some proper Black Friday shopping! haha!

In other news.....I went to a yard sale on Friday morning and found the greatesy yard sale find of my LIFE! Brace yourself for gut panging jealousy.....I got a Magic Bullet!!! Brand spanking new in it's package....WITH a blender and juicer......for, get this.....TEN DOLLARS!!! That's $10.00 for those who read best in numbers. I am beyind thrilled.....I also got a really great plate to place on the high shelf in my living room, a few vintagey stockings, a new Santa to add to my collection, and 2 phones. Love yard sales, but love them even more when I find a lot of things that I can actually use...and I have been wanting to get a bullet for about...ummm.....3 years?? Here's a picture of my kitchen's newest best friend....





Now.....best for last......Brooke lost her first tooth tonight! YIPPE YI YAY COW PATTY! We have been waiting for ages....my kids are the only kids in their classes to have NOT lost a tooth yet....Brooke's has been quite loose for a while, but tonight it started bleeding while she was flossing...freaked her out...so I convinced her that it needed to come out before it got infected or worse, so it wouldn't come out while she was sleeping and cause her to swallow it on accident! Mwahahaha....my ploy worked and she ran upstairs to have her dad help her pull it. It came out easily enough and she grinned until she fell asleep. I am looking forward to the tooth fairy visiting tonight and finally putting that tooth fairy pillow to use:) Here are some pics of Brooke's adventure!







It's GONE!!!



I think this was the first night in a loooong time *maybe since last Christmas?* that Brooke WANTED to go to bed *I should really learn to space these things out...lol*! If you look closely at the small pillow by her head you'll see her tiny little tooth inside it's cozy pocket. Congrats Stringbean!!! We're so exicted that you finally lost your first tooth! Now....if only I had a way to sneak pictures of her showing it off at school tomorrow.....

GREAT news about the tooth! Congrats Brooke. She looks so proud in that photo ... cute. :)

Also, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my magic bullet. I have to shake it sometimes if the stuff inside is too thick - but it's such a cool invention. I like to make dips, and smoothies as well as veggie purees. Good find girlfriend.

Man ... AGAIN --- this darn thing keeps posting my comments from my other blog. I'm not sure how to fix it. Let's see if this works ...
