Fun at Target

Fun at Target

Two recent trips to Target were not complete without a stop in the Christmas section.

Shecklet #4 took a few calls from Santa and the elves. (I had to tell her which way to hold the phone – she wasn’t sure why it had a cord!)

The boys found themselves heading the wrong way down the chimney.

We had celebratory cupcakes for dessert tonight in honor of Shecklet #3’s first day of kindergarten. The color was so bold, it stained lips, tongues and fingers!

This was Shecklet #4 in her pink tractor cart earlier in the day when we she selected the cupcakes. (We met Nana for breakfast at Hy-Vee after sending the other three Shecklets off to school.)

We did a little birthday shopping for me this afternoon and worked up an appetite.  While we were waiting for our lunch to be served, Little #3 broke out the crayons and drew the members of her family.  (Jake added the initials above the heads so we knew who was who.)  Reminds me of the family portrait that Little #2 drew earlier in the year.

My new comeback

My new comeback

I was shopping with the kids tonight, (the boys in the big kid part of the cart and Little Miss was in the Bjorn kicking her legs,) when we rounded a corner and crossed the path of the sweetest lady. Typically random strangers will see me and say, “You’ve got your hands full!” Instead this woman said to me, “You’re surrounded by love!” She made my night…and gave me a new comeback.

Getting ready for school

Getting ready for school

Our visit to the big red store today included a trip to the school supply section.  (I’m always looking for deals on Post-it notes since I go through so many of them.)  While we were shopping, we rolled past the backpack aisle.  Nolan eyed up a Toy Story backpack, so Lincoln, likewise, found one too.  Once we were home, the two of them modeled their new bags before promptly finding all sorts of things to load into them.
