Children's Orchard

I forgot to mention in my last post that I got that great deal from a store called Children's Orchard. It's a second hand store so some of it is lightly used but sometimes they have things that still have original price tags on them! I'm sure they have stores in other states so check out their website and see if there's one near you! Sign up for the MOMS club and they email you a $5 coupon for your first visit. You can also sell old clothes to them--but the clothes has to look pretty great and have no stains or smells. They also buy used toys and other baby items like strollers, carriages, bouncers, etc... When you sign up for the MOMS club make sure you click on the box saying you'd like the deals emails they send out. They don't send a lot of junk mail. In fact, I've only gotten two emails from them since signing up about 2 months ago- one had the $5 coupon and the other was to let me know about their "fill a bag for $5" event.
Happy Thriftier Shopping!!

I love great deals!!

On Saturday morning I went to a local children's store while they had their summer deal:
"fill a bag for $5"
It was FABULOUS!!!

I got 21 items of baby clothes and shoes for Hali'a and La'akea for $5!!
That is about 24 cents per item!

I love deals like these, especially when it's a deal for children things!!
Keep an eye out for your local stores that do this!!!

The best bubble blower in the world...or at least the funnies!

Just a couple videos of La'akea


Our La'akea is now 4 1/2 months old and weighing 11 pounds, 10 ounces. She's growing quickly and still making funny faces. She sleeps 7-9 hours every night unless her teeth are bothering her. Yes, she's teething...CRAZY!
She loves to be tickled and loves when people make funny faces at her. She also loves to sit and watch Hali'a dance and play. Her favorite food is milk (haven't started solids yet) and her favorite thing to do is be held!

She's wearing the same shirt Hali'a wore on her first birthday:)

Guess what she's so intrigued with...


Here's the happs with Hali'a:

She'll be 3 in November but if you ask her she's either 12, 16 or 19. Sometimes you'll get the answer, "16 and 19". She weighs 24 pounds and 8 ounces so she's still on the skinny side. She loves singing, dancing, watching movies and doing anything with La'akea. She's hilarious and says some pretty crazy things. We're pretty sure she's going to be a smart butt as a teenager so wish us luck:)

This is her "Izzy hat", her favorite pirate on the Disney Jr show, Jake and the Neverland Pirates. She MUST wear it when she watches the show and she'll never put it on unless the show is on:)

Watching movies in her room:)

I taught her how to fold the little rags/kitchen towels and she got it down after watching just once! I will never fold a small towel again:) Can't wait til she's big enough to fold all the towels:)

She's a great help with La'akea too...

Hali'a got her first hair cut this summer so we said goodbye to some of her out-of-control curls!

The powder ordeal...the one every kid goes through...
