Free Fries and Frostys at Wendy's

It usually costs a bundle to feed a family of 9 fast food. We eat it once a week after church on Sunday. This gives me a nice break from feeding this crew and also our church lets out about 12:30. By then, we are all very hungry and want something quick.
The local Rally's has a .69 menu we frequent a lot. Another great buy is found at Wendy's. At Wendy's for Halloween and Valentine's Day they offer a book of 6 coupons for one dollar. There are 3 coupons for free JR. fries and 3 coupons for free JR. Frostys. If nine people order one thing each off the dollar menu and use 2 coupons each (one fry and one Frosty.) You can feed a family of 9 a fast food meal for only twelve dollars. Not very nutritious but a great bargain (for fast food.)

High School Basketball

We went to the local high school basketball game last night. George was excited about it all afternoon but in the end he got a little tired and restless in the 4th quarter.

He liked to climb up and down the bleachers. He fell and banged his head on Rachel, but he's ok.

My friend Catherine who is a pizza waitress is also a cheerleader and dancer, so we got to see her perform also. And when the cheerleaders threw out souvenirs to the crowd, she made sure we got something. Nathan came home with a new t-shirt and Rachel brought home a little blue basketball.

Emma was missing as she had a dinner activity with a group of friends from church.

My Little Jock

Our 23 month old son has his sports all mixed up and blended together. He has been calling out "Hike!" before shooting the basketball into his Little Tikes hoop. And yesterday he threw a golf ball down a hole and cried "Slam-Dunk!"

He's adorable.

Trashpicking in Suburbia

I have a confession to make. Last night coming home from church in the dark I spied treasure in my neighbors trash. I snuck over and snatched it up. It is a fold up Disney Princess castle in pristine condition. The things people throw away.

I am also proud to have trashpicked the following: Duplo Lego table with storage underneath, White plastic Cosco high chair, BMX ramp and an Evenflo Exersaucer (all in excellent condition.) My husband's ex trashpicked me a solid wood accent telephone table with wrought iron legs before she became my archenemy.

Will you confess to trashpicking and what's the best thing you've ever found?
