Eli's almost crawling!

So, since last Saturday, Eli has been getting up on all fours and trying to crawl. He will get up and then lean forward...
rinse, and repeat...
until he get's to whatever he's got his eye on. It is too cute!

Landon, well, he's just Landon. The boy who doesnt want to eat anything half the time. But, the dr's say it's normal.

CVS'ing is going good. I went on Monday. I have to go back today because I got a nail polish and it didnt give me my ECB's, I got home and realized I picked up the wrong one! poo!

Also, Eli has his 6 month checkup today at 2:15pm. It was actually supposed to be last Tuesday, but I totally had no idea! Oh well. He should be getting some shots, but I am not going to have to pay them an extra $100+ just to do it there. (Cost about $12 just for the checkup) So, I am going to go by the Health Department and get them.. The cost...about $10!!!! It's sad how dr's offices charge an arm and leg. They charge for the vaccine itself, and for the girls to give it...and that's worth $100+,, NO! $10 sounds better to me!!!

Here are some pictures of my boys:

September 11, 2001...I was sitting in Spanish class at DHS....

At one point I was told there was a bomb threat at the college my mom taught at, but ended up there wasn't. That was a bad day...and 5 days later I had to put my prescious Jewels to sleep. She had kidney failure and I couldnt stand to see her suffer.

My Coupon Book

Here's a few pix I just took of my coupon book. It isn't great and I am already needing something bigger. Well I don't want anything bigger, per se, just maybe fatter/thicker. Click on the pictures to biggify them...

Outside: Front

In the front I have my CVS and Wags slots for ECB's, cvs cards, and RR's for Wags.

These are the tabs I have my coupons sorted under. (Drinks/Toothpaste/Shampoo&Cond/Tampons/Air Freshener are the ones shown)

In the back are my receipts for CVS and Wags..and maybe the occasional Wal-Mart receipt.

So, how do you organize your coupons???

Our Trip Last Weekend.. why I haven't posted in a bit. Getting ready for the trip, then coming home and being worn out and dealing with kids who's schedules were thrown off for 3 whole days.

I didn't manage to go by a CVS while in Tennessee b/c of everything else going on. It sucks b/c there was somethingI wanted to get that isn't sold here in Alabama. *wink, wink*

We went up for hubby's work. It was a weekend of them playing things like softball, volleyball, darts, walk/run, basketball, etc. They play other TVA plants around here. I think they got 2nd place in volleyball, and didn't place in softball. They only played 3 games. Lost, Won, Lost. Normally they don't do that bad at softball, but a lot of the guys are older-ish and have knee/ankle problems. Heck, even my hubby has knee/ankle problems too, so I don't guess it's the age thing. lol.

Me, the boys, and my mom & friend all went shopping and I got lots of Tennessee Vols, shirts, pants, and more.

Saturday night was the party. The theme this year was Mardi Gras. So, things were decorated with purple, green, and gold. There were beads all over the tables and we brought a bunch of them home too. Landon was being a typical 2 yr old. Running and screaming b/c he was so tired from not taking a nap, but what's new.

Eli was a pretty good baby. 'Nuf said.

We came back Sunday afternoon and have yet to really unpack everything and it's now Thursday. haha. We are just to worn out still...

I did however, go by CVS twice since I last posted, so I will post those receipts in a bit.

OH, and last week I got my first ever e-mail from CVS for $4 off of a $20 purchase! WooHoo!!!
