I Love a Good Bargain!

She sits up in her new toy like a big girl!

I have a feeling one day she may actually find a way to put it in her mouth.

My favorite dress of the four I found.

I love this one, too! It still has the tags on it!

I absolutely l-o-v-e a good bargain! Recently, I have run upon two great steals. In Indianola there is a thrift shop called 82 Outlet. They have everything from baby items to household items. I went with mama a week ago, and we found a very cute walker for only $30. Being the good Bella that she is, she got it for Ginger. Ginger has a blast in it. She's obsessed with the purple flower and pink butterfly on the ends and is constantly trying to pull them toward her so she can put them in her mouth. (Thanks, Papa and Bella!) I also found a great deal on clothes for Ginger at a big consignment sale in Columbus called Cooper's Closet. To my understanding, they come to Columbus once a year and sale everything you could imagine needing for a baby and toddler. I got four dresses for Ginger for only $30!! Can you tell I'm excited about it? :) I wonder if Hutson would let me stay home with Ginger until she goes to school if I promise to continue finding all these great bargains?

Poor, Innocent Evie

Poor thing never stood a chance.

She screamed the entire time she was attacking Evie.

Apparently, they had reconciled their differences by the next morning.

There is a sweet, innocent stuffed lamb at my parents' house named Evie that Mama bought for Ginger to play with. I think she's adorable; Mama thinks she's precious, but she has apparently gotten on Ginger's bad side (as you can tell from the pictures). Thursday night Ginger threw a temper tantrum to rival all temper tantrums ever thrown, and poor Evie got the brunt of it. Evie survived , but I don't think we will leave her in Ginger's crib overnight!

New Blog on the Block

I have been thinking about starting a blog for a while and suddenly decided that now is the time. I am excited about keeping everyone up to date on what is going on with our family. Ginger Belle is 16 weeks and full of so much personality. I've posted some recent pictures of her. She changes everyday, and no one can decide if she looks like me or Hutson. What do you think?
