Addison Hope is Two

I can't believe our little girl is two today. It seems like yesterday I was in labor with her. It is already going by too fast and lately I have realized I have been too busy. I think God is telling me I need to slow down.

Addison was born January 27, 2007 at 11:18PM. She entered the world with some breathing and platelet issues and spent 11 days in the NICU. You do not plan for your newborn to be sick at birth but it happens for a reason. She has had no other medical issues since then and I am thankful!

I am so thankful for God giving her to Phil and I to take care of here. I hope we can teach her to be a light in this dark world!

Please pray for Harper. She is a precious little girl who was just born and will be spending some time in the NICU.

Kroger Day

I haven't been to the grocery since before Christmas so I had a lot of items to buy. I did decent with many free items today. My total before coupons and kroger plus card was $177.13. I saved 33.13 with sale items on my plus card and 37.62 with my coupons for a total of 106.38.
Highlights from my shopping trip
3 4 roll packs of cottonelle=1/11 coupon 2/.50 which doubled, and a .50 printable= .97
Powerade zero=.89, mfc .40 doubled= .09 had 2 coupons bought 2
Cheerios= Free coupon
Suave deoderant= 1.00, mfc .55 doubled=free had 3 coupons bought 3 FREE
Colgate Total= 2.89, mfc 1.50, cellfire 1.50= Free and earned .11
Crest= 2.50, mfc .75, pgesaver 1.50= .25
Kroger Sour Cream= 1.39, mfc 1.00, cellfire .75= Free earned .36
Soft Soap Hand Soap= 1.00, mfc .35 doubled= .30
Pampers= 21.00, mfc 1.00, pgesaver 1.25=18.75
Cascade Complete=3.99, mfc .50 doubled= 2.99 had 2 coupons bought 2
Saved an extra $5.00 for buying $25 in proctor and gamble products so I essentially got both packs of cascade for .98. Generic is more expensive than this deal.

Phil hadn't been to a Louisville game since we moved to Arkansas. I thought the best gift I could give him was a set of tickets to a game while we were in Kentucky visiting. As you can see by the look on his face he was quite thrilled with the gift. We also used it as an opportunity as a date night. I love when I can pull off surprises for my my hubby. Love you sweetie!
