What a Day!

Today started off GREAT! While going through the coupons I found some for things that were on my shopping list that I don't normally buy. I went shopping early enough that there wasn't a lot of traffic in the parking lot or in the commissary. Once there I found even more coupons, 3 dollars total coupon savings. Wednesdays at the commissary are "Wacky Wednesdays," they usually have pretty good deals on various products (free lysol one day). At one point the line got so long the manager randomly picked someone waiting and gave them 10 dollars. They also sometimes play "Lucky Customer," where they choose a register and a random person wins a chunk off their grocery bill, I've actually seen them give up to 50 dollars off. Today, however, was 25 dollars off... I WAS THE LUCKY CUSTOMER!! I spent less then 40 dollars on a weeks worth of groceries!

The rest of the morning and into the afternoon was just kinda fun and happy! I got to take a nap with the girls.

Josh came home for dinner, fun and happy!

Brenna got to play at Grace's, fun and happy!

Anna watched my girls so I could run to Walmart, fun and wait... Not so much fun and Paige was really NOT happy. We are learning that Paige is suffering from a bit of separation anxiety. I was really hoping she just didn't like the church nursery but after today I'm sure she just has an attachment to her mommy and daddy. I guess we'll be working this over the next, well, however long it takes.

After Paige calmed down and took a nap, B and I hung out and had some more fun. When it was time to go to bed Brenna decided she and Paige needed to sleep in their matching cow pj's (I'm really hoping to get a picture in the morning).

So now, my babes are asleep, my dog's at my feet and I just rescued a spider and set him free outside. All in all, it's been an AWESOME day! Thank you Lord!

Good Sleeper

I was amazed when Paige began sleeping through the night at about 7 weeks old. Brenna didn't sleep though the night until almost 2 years old. I wasn't really sure what to do with all that rest. The answer now is very clear, enjoy it! Paige no longer sleeps through the night.
Since birth, Paige has slept in our room in a bassinet and, consequently, Brenna ended up in our room as well since she has to be where the action is. Well, Little Bit no longer fits in the bassinet and since she was trying to roll in it we deemed it was time for her to move into her room. WHY OH WHY?!
Paige loves her new bed and her new room, so much so that she loves to be awake when she's in there. She loves to wake up at 4am and thinks she's supposed to nurse since hey, she's awake. I feel like I haven't slept in a week, oh wait, I haven't.
The upside to all of this is Brenna wants to sleep wherever her little sister is and now sleeps on the futon in Paige's room.
