I'm so unoriginal. My girls were the same thing as last year, but the 3 oldest did have different witch costumes. Since I totally forgot to even think about a costume for Tessa it's a good thing that the one she wore last year still fit her. So we had 3 witches and a cat again this year! We went to our cousins (Jake and Karalee's) house for homemade soup and bread and then the big group went out trick or treating. My kids had so much fun. Tessa got the hang of getting candy at each house real quick. She would walk right up and put her hand out.

more coupons!

Okay, so I know I've been so bad about posting and I have tons of things I should journal about(like bridget's birthday, Tessa's 18 month mark, Hannah and Emily dancing at the fair- to name a few), but I just got back from the grocery store tonight (well a few hours ago) and I can't believe how much I got for so little. This coupon thing is amazing! I get free stuff or make money on things at CVS and Walgreens all the time now, but with food it is a little harder to do, but tonight I scored.
I got:
2 gallons Blue Bunny ice cream,
3 boxes hamburger helper,
3 boxes quaker simple harvest oatmeal,
3 boxes quaker oatmeal to go bars
4 drinkable dora yogurts, &
3 packages of instant potatoes

The grand total $1.83!!
Can you believe it?!
