Tennessee Shopping Trip

Here is Toni, Me, and Stacey.

Here is my mother-in-law's suv.

by the way we went shopping again after this..........

us again.
So, last weekend me, my MIL and SIL went on a 4 day 3 night trip to Sevierville to go Christmas Shopping at the Outlets. We met the Tucker girls there (Toni and Becky)!
I did no where near the shopping as my MIL or SIL (in this case) did but I did get some done & scored a new Coach (outlet price my dear's)........ But I'm such a tight wad that purchase is killing me!!!
As I've stated before my MIL has had her Christmas Tree's up (all 9) since early September and the whole house full out. So, of course she stopped at Target on the way there and purchased a small tree to go in our hotel room. She also brought along wrapping paper, ribbon, etc. so we could wrap presents as we bought them. I said thanks but no thanks! I'll wrap the gifts AFTER Thanksgiving, ha!
I wish I enjoyed Christmas nearly as much but truth is when you get married and have kids it becomes so stressful financially that it takes the focus on what the holiday is all about CHRIST and decorating in August/September just wants to make me say Bah Humbug!!!

It was a perfect day for a party I think it was the best weather we have ever had for one! Just right!! We always plan on it being warm for Brinley Kate's party in April & it usually ends up a bit chilly & windy. All in All great day except we were missing Granna & BoBo who were cruising in Mexico!

Halloween Night 2009

So here is my little Raggedy Ann and The Postal Worker.... Brinley Kate picked this out of a magazine months ago it was a toss-up b/w that and the UPS man but she ultimitely she decided on this! As for Hallie she had to wear sister's hand-me-downs... I know bummer right....? But that how it goes cause momma here is cheap! Most of their clothes are secondhand anyway so who cares if it comes from sister or a stranger!?!?

We made a pitstop at my grandparents fall festival first of course they wanted to see the kids and they were in need of kids! You see they only have about 10 or a little more attendees every Sunday....

We opted this year to go to our church's Fall Festival we have never been so wanted to check it out. Sooo yeah it was like a carnival alot of rides,concession stands the works! As usual we did it big!
B.K refused to wear her mailbag & hat when we got there although I don't blame her on the hat she has a big head like daddy & it didn't fit all that well....
Think we might just go with old fashioned trick-or-treating next year (we didn't get enough candy for my liking!). Although we saw a few ppl from church it was alot of ppl that didn't go to our church that we didn't know. I was hoping for B.K to be able to spend time with ppl from her SS class but too many ppl there to find anybody. Were talking thousands of people!
