Thank you cyber Monday ...

This summer and fall my husband went without a job.... we had alot of money put back for Christmas ( we do Chrsitmas big and have 3 different family celebrations for it ) .... so needless to say we had to use all of that money ...

My mom and dad usually give my husband and me $100 / each as our Christmas gifts ( and then usually also buys us like an outfit and 1 other thing ) ....so this year we just put our $200 for the kid's gifts... ( $100 each )

I know that is alot more than alot of other people get and that we are very lucky to have got it....

But with the things our kids wanted I didnt know how I was going to stretch it... BUT I DID.... thanks to cyber monday savings I was able to get them 23 gifts EACH .... and they were all usually very high priced items, but the most expensive thing I bought was $20 ( originally $62 ) ... I even bought my daughter a starter violin for $6 !!! and i got them both matching sets of pjs for $6 - for both pairs !

I am kinda proud !!!!
