Happy Birthday!

Happy birthday, baby boy! Can it really be two years since you made your arrival in the wee hours of the morning, with such speed, I barely had time to get checked into the hospital and convince them to give me some pain relief. You've continued through your life full speed ahead. You've kept me on my toes. You make me smile, you make me laugh, you make me just want to hug you and hold you, even though most of the time you can't stay still long enough to let me, but sometimes you do and I love that. You've always been such a happy child, and you're nice enough to let everyone else around us know that. You save your not so happy side for us at home, which I appreciate. I'd much rather have people say he's such a happy child then, wow, look at that temper. You are happy more often than not, but I'm glad for the most part you save the fits for at home when it's easier to deal with. You love your brother and sister so much that some times you get carried away in showing that love and you can tell that they love you too, by how quick they are to forgive you and play with you. You are so special! You love to say your prayers and take advantage of the power of the priesthood in our home. I love you more than you'll ever know! Happy Birthday Speedy!

So I just recently started getting newspapers to start couponing. I went to a class, and when I heard the money that was being saved, I figured I'd give it a try, especially since their is a website that does the hard work for me.
So this week I went I made my first purchases. I got 2 things of lysol wipes for $0.27 (that was just the tax, since the coupons I used made them free!) I got Chex Mix for under a $1.00 a bag. And this week I plan on picking up A-1 sauce for $0.79 a bottle.
It usually takes a little while to really get going and have all the coupons when things come on sale, but I'm excited how things are starting!

Happy Birthday Baluga

Happy birthday my dear sweet wonderful girl! I'm so glad you are part of our family. I'm so happy to have another girl in our home, even though we are outnumbered. You make me laugh, you make me smile, you make me so happy to be your mother. You love me in spite of my faults and you are quick to forgive of my short comings, I can only hope you keep that up, but you probably won't, but know I will always love you! You are my wonderful helper. You are probably going to be a wonderful cook, you love to help in the kitchen and ask questions about what I am doing. You are growing so fast! You play so well with your brothers and you are best buds, and I hope it stays that way! There is nothing better than being best friends with your family. I hope you remember I will always be there for you to listen and help you. I'm so glad you are my daughter. I hope you had a great birthday!
