  • Today was a fairly slow Saturday morning. When Robby did come out of the bedroom dressed and ready, he asked me about going to the store. I had already made 6 batches of gingerbread dough and was starting to roll it out.
  • It didn't take me long to clean up my mess and shove things into the fridge, and we were soon off to the store. We walked around Costco and found a few things. I will say this about Costco-you can find deals sometimes. Though when Robby saw shirts that he bought for 18 dollars a month or two on sale for 6 today, that is a bit defeating. Ha! We did find a few good deals though and left happy.
  • Happy didn't last long because the grocery store was next. It is amazing how grocery prices have gone up. Nothing that we buy has gone up a ton, but just a small amount-but that small amount for all of our different groceries does add up.
  • We came home, and I unloaded the groceries. Then I headed right back out for Keaton's first basketball game. Keaton, Graham and Anderson missed their last games because we were out of town, so this was their first game day.
  • Keaton's game was first-she did good and might just need to be a bit more aggressive. However, I know that she will get more aggressive as the season goes along. They did lose, but the score was close-ish. 
  • We had a short break between the next game. It was long enough for me to go one Kroger to grab a few things (and yes, I was just there this morning). Robby took Campbell and Keaton to do some shopping at 5 Below and they also ran into a Kroger (don't judge us for loving the grocery store.)
  • Graham's game was good. They were down by a good bit, but came back to only lose by 2. Graham is one of the strongest players on his team. He scored at least 8 points-bless his team though, he has 3 little guys that are tiny, but they do have heart and play hard.
  • Anderson's games was next. It was a blood bath. Anderson did well though and got his hands on the ball a few times. His team was a head shorter than the other team. There were times when Anderson's team seemed to get things together and go on a little run, but then the other team was just dominate. I am sure that it was pretty defeating for him, but I do hope that he had fun.
  • After the games, we came home and made our meal from Costco along with some cheese dip. We all ate, and then the kids guessed ornament after ornament. Then I went to town on my gingerbread house making. Reagan is having a little party and inviting a few of her friends to make gingerbread houses-I had no idea it would be so much work.
  • Keaton made cookies for the big boys' lifegroup tomorrow while I finished baking my houses. Then the kids and I played Apples to Apples before I sat down to work on the blog for a few minutes.
