We had a big group here for Saturday breakfast - 5 children and 6 adults.
Mornings can be a bit crazy so I did as much prep as I could Friday night.
The table was set and stools were brought in of extra seating for little ones.
Back when our budget was much tighter I couldn't even consider them, but now, I am quite thankful to afford these treats.
I set up the coffeemaker with water and coffee. I set out the right combination of sippy cups and child size cups we would need.
I also laid out clothes for the overnight grandchildren to dress in and I even set out mine and my husband's morning prescription and vitamin doses.
I'm still shopping there though I have skipped a few weeks this summer.
2 weeks ago, I got $140 worth of stuff seen below for $40 and got back $37 ECBs. I don't usually spend that much cash but I got a lot of stuff, including 2 expensive lipsticks that were not on special.
This past week, I bought $93 worth and spent just $4 cash.
I used manufacturer coupons, ECBs personal CVS coupons from their app and from the red machine in CVS stores to drop my total so low.
By the way, the Gold Emblem deluxe mixed nuts and cashews are delicious.
Our 4th grandchild, Braeden, turned 4 and we celebrated at a local restaurant that also has 4 bowling lanes. It was very fun and the food was delicious!
The grandchildren really enjoy homemade Popsicles - just orange juice frozen in an old fashioned Tupperware mold.
Jackson wasn't too sure he liked his first orange juice Popsicle
But after a few tastes, he decided they were very good.
My daughter took this photo on their recent 2 week road trip. This is her husband's great aunt's kitchen in North Carolina.
Retro appliances like this are not something common nowaways as most everyone seems to want stainless steel and granite. But I think these old appliances are so cool. My electrician brother pointed out that the burner controls are the buttons on the vent hood.
That's the highlights from around here- have a wonderful Sunday everyone!
