Stephen's been wanting to do a 3-D puzzle for a while, but they're just too darn expensive. Not this one! Never been opened before - 25 cents:
And I hauled in all this baby stuff! In this pile is books, socks, hats, toys, Carter's clothes, cloth diapers, receiving blankets, burp cloths, a changing mat, and a little sleeping bag thing to wrap up the baby in - all 25 cents except the changing mat (50 cents) and sleeping bag (1.00):
Yes, I'm very happy with how we did! Of course I got many other things, but I didn't think everyone was that interested in everything I got. Mainly it was just puzzles and candles and stuff. One thing I did get for free that I am really excited about is:
Our youth group is doing Operation Christmas Child this year. At one of the yard sales at Our Savior Lutheran church, I saw several shoe boxes underneath one of the tables. When I asked the lady in charge about them, and told her what I wanted them for, she said that's probably what they were going to use them for, but she would call me if they didn't use them. Well, about 20 minutes later, she came and found me and said if I wanted a box of ten, I could take them. Yes!! That was so nice of her to hunt me down and let me take them. That means the kids don't have to find empty boxes, just fill them up, which is the fun part anyway!
After yard sales, mom and dad took me to 195 for lunch, of course. It was absolutely delicious and filling. Now I am going to be waddling around all afternoon because we are having visitors from Georgia come tonight! I better get to work cleaning up all my yard sale finds!!!
