This weekend was another full one. Saturday we celebrated Christmas with Paul's family. That was a lot of fun! It's always a good time watching the girls open their gifts and get so excited! Scott and Jenell really liked the camera that we all got them...they were definitely surprised! One of Paul's gifts from his mom & dad was a box full of 'goodies' from when he was a baby...like a couple of outfits, and his old blankie, and some keepsakes...so he really liked that. I will be putting most of it into the cedar chest.
Today we went up to Foley for a fundraiser brunch in support of Sawyer. They had a great turn-out, so that was awesome. They served breakfast, and had a silent auction and bake sale going on too. I think it was put on by Thrivent. On the way home from the fundraiser, we stopped in St. Cloud to return the camera that I got a few weeks ago and decided I didn't like the picture quality...yes, I am picky... I didn't pick out another one yet, so hopefully I'll be able to find one that I like now. I just have to remember it's only a point and shoot and I have my dslr for better pictures. Anyhoo, we also stopped at Once Upon a Child. Pretty sure that is my new favorite store for baby clothes. We spent a grand total of $84 and got a pile of clothes, 2 pairs of little boots, and a carrier (that I have not figured out how to work yet...). So I think we got a pretty good deal, considering that a lot of the clothes were brand name. We'll definitely be stopping there whenever we go to St. Cloud from now on. :)
