My Top 5 Christmas Shopping Ideas For Kiddos!!

So with Thanksgiving and Christmas so very close together I've stared my shopping early and thankfully I'm just about done.:)
I wanted to share with you just our Top 5 places we like to shop for our kiddos.
If' you have been with me long you know how much that I love Good Will and Salvation Army ( Sally's as my family calls it!)  so you know that there will be other cool places like that on my list!
So on with my list. :)
  1.  Your Local "Facebook" Garage Sale, Buy Sell Trade Page.
    Just look for it you'll find it. we have 6 for our area!

 I have bought 3 or 4 gifts for the kids this year on there for about 1/4 of the price of the store.   and you know that they don't care if its not brand new. it's already out of the package and ready to play with! :)

    2. Good Will and Sally's .
Again you have gently used clothing and great toys, just double check if your buying games that all the pieces are there!

    3. Garage Sales.

 It's kinda late this year for this one, but I love shopping all summer long for great gifts, and again for about 1/2 to 1/4 of the price of the store for " Like new" things.

    4.Christian Book Distributers
I love that I can find great God Centered books and Toys Here as well!


    5. Vision Forum
We have bought a few Birthday gifts as well as Christmas gifts here. we love that they have REAL boy toys. like sling shots and play guns. They also have a great staff that was very helpful as well!

Ok I can't just stop with 5. I need to do just one more! :)

   6. Itsy!!!!

 I love, love, love all the cool stuff that you can find on there, I love the kids pages you can go here to see it! But you can also find neat stuff for YOU from the Kiddos ;) .  You can go here to find that too!

So there you have it! and now you know my secrets to where most of our kiddos gifts come from. :)
I may post about Adult gifts this week and the fun of finding a great deal to give as gifts too!

Have a wonderful day !!! I'm off to get life going in our Little home. that includes starting a fire, cause my fingers are about to fall off from being so cold! :)

I Am Blessed!!!

I'm so sorry that I have been gong for so very long.
Life was in a spiral that last few months it seems to just keep getting faster rather then slowing down.
But the Lord has worked so much in my life in that time that I wouldn't trade it.
Back in July the Lord blessed us with another " Little Treasure" we we're thrilled and excited!
We really were not planning or trying so it was a HUGE joy. but just a few weeks later in Aug. the Lord chose to take our 5th "Little Treasure" to heaven to be with Him.
It was more of a trial then I ever dreamed that I would walk through. At the point of losing the baby I wasn't sure of where the baby had gone, it was one of those things that I really never thought about." When you miscarry what happens to the baby's spirit"??? 
I prayed and prayed about it, sought godly counsel. and finally the Lord just gave me His sweet peace in knowing that the baby was with Him.
I'm NOW thankful to have walked that road, so that in the future I can morn with those who the Lord make take down that same path. So thankful for a Savor who loves me and carried us through.

So all that to say I'm Cherishing each second the Lord give us with our 4 Little Treasures and trusting that He will bless us with a few more in the future. :)  YES I said a Few. :)

 I want to share with you just a few shots of our Treasures from this Fall



I'm so smitten and Blessed!
We now have the internet at home. so Lord willing I'll be updating much more often, and I still have a review and giveaway for you!
Have a wonderful weekend!
