Better late than never...

This year the kids picked out their own costumes... I was a little apprehensive, since I am a control freak, but it worked out well. Alex got her skirt at a garage sale this summer for 50 cents... the scarves and shirt at the thrift store. While we were at the thrift store looking for accessories for alex, abigail pointed out a strawberry costume... and went crazy. She LOVES strawberries! I was tickled that it was adorable and it was only $3.99. Gavin chose a costume from Family Dollar for $7.00. So, in all we spent less than $15.00 for three costumes. When Alex was younger, I used to go to the disney store and spend $75.00 for a costume & accessories and not think twice about it. What was I thinking? I think that is just pure silliness. As I am typing this, I am talking to my sister on the phone and she just said that she got 2 kids costumes at walmart last night for 70 cents each. I will be visiting walmart today or tomorrow. I am on a mission to save as much money as I can, and getting the best value. I would rather put the extra money in savings, instead of in a costume that my children are going to wear for 2 hours. The cookies above were baked by my neighbor, who is a fabulous baker! YUMMY!
