Diaper deals!

If you've never used there is a great deal you should know about!! I learned about it HERE at Go there for the long version of how to get it. Here is the short version.
Buy 5 jumbo packs of pampers or huggies for 10.99 each (and there might even be a $1 off coupon on the page too. There was on mine). Use code JULI7828 and get $10 off your order. Plus you get free 2 day shipping. Print out rebate form HERE and get 14.97 back (instead of the magazine subscription). I got size 5 so I'm getting 130 diapers for $28.98 or 22.3 cents per diaper! That is a great deal!!
(I figured out that buying a box at Sam's club is about 30 cents per diaper. Still a good deal compared to other stores.)
your welcome :)

A game and Outside Fun

Emery really loves this game I made using an old (but clean!) egg carton, and 12 cotton balls. All I do is "hide" the cotton balls while he's in the other room and then he comes with the carton and tries to find them all. I happened to have some foam number stickers, so I numbered them but you don't have to do that. Once he finds them all he's like "more?" And I hide them all over again! I'm thinking he's going to LOVE Easter this year!

It warmed up for a week so we spent as much time outside as possible! He wouldn't stop running so I could take a picture. Oh well. He was having a great time!

He loves running back and forth crunching the leaves along the curb too.
We went to the zoo another day with his little buddy Sam.

Emery wouldn't smile but he fell asleep on the car ride over and was still waking up! Thanks for coming Sam! Congrats on being a big brother :) Be nice to baby Nate!

It's cold!

Not much going on around here. Just trying to keep warm (it's been chilly) and getting ready for Valentine's Day. Emery thought putting some heart stickers on his face and body was more fun than on paper Valentine's.
