They are really neat. You can even open up the train and airplane to store stuff inside. Thank you very much Jakob! Sean just recently started pushing cars and vehicles around, like you are supposed to play with them, so he likes this very much.
Our gift to Jakob was a sled. This is such a cute picture of Sean & Jakob. Looks like Sean is massaging Jakob's shoulders! Jenn had asked me to check to see if Zellers had any of them in stock while there, as her husband asked her to pick one up. Since I hadn't started my holiday shopping yet (bad bad Robyn), I decided to start it today, and pick up the Sled for Jakob. I also picked up a Sled for Sean. All I need now is to find a pair of snow pants for Sean. His winter jacket which my parents got for him at the Tommy Hilfiger store in New York, didn't come with snow pants. I didn't realize how hard it was to find 12-18 month size snow pants. I checked a few places out today, and already have checked a few places in the last week or so (including Walmart that doesn't sell just snow pants in that size). Tomorrow I'm going to check Winners and The Children's Place at the local mall. I really want to take Sean sledding on Thursday, but I need to find him snow pants first. The local mall also has kiosks with Children's clothing all throughout the mall, so I will hopefully be able to find something. I've even checked Craigslist, and ebay. There are some options on ebay, should I not be able to find tomorrow. I'm already watching some auctions. Next winter - I get him a set - not a jacket alone!
I am the master of finding good deals. Well, today, while I was in Maxi & Cie, I went specifically for whole wheat hot dog buns, and while there - I decided to check out the kids clothing department. I also had to pick up size 4 huggies, as Sean is no longer fitting into size 3 (which is 16-22 lbs, and He's 22 and a half pounds now. Anyhow, he's been leaking through the size 3's, so it was about time. It's still more economical to buy Huggies at Costco, but I was in a bind - and needed them now. Plus I'm still waiting for my Amex to come in the mail, the one that I applied for when I got my Costco membership last week. Anyhow, back to my good deal:
I picked up this cute little 12-18 month size pair of PJ's for Sean today for only .94 cents. You see, in Quebec, you are guaranteed Price Protection. The original price of this Joe outfit was 18$. There was a ticket on the outfit, that it was on sale for 10.94$. But, when I got to the register, it scanned in for 13.94$. So because it scanned in at a higher price than what the ticket said, you can open your mouth, and I did. So, the girl has to remove the 13.94$, and put in 10.94$ and then this is where the price protection comes in. If the item is less than 10$ - you get the item for free. If the item is more than 10$ you get 10$ off your item. So, 10.94$ minus the 10$ is a whole whopping .94 cents for this totally cute set of PJ's that came with little booties for Sean. Am I the Queen of getting good deals?? I think so! I won't complain!
On Sunday I got cracking on my yarn room. It's coming along mighty fine! I cleaned all the shelves first, and lined them with paper, and filled up each cubby with yarn. There is still some empty cubbies, and there is still some yarn to go into those empty cubbies, but I only got so much done so far. Though, it's looking fabulous! I do have to say so myself.
Here is a close-up of some of the yarn I have for sale. Doesn't it just look delecious?? I am open to Montreal knitters to come see the yarn room if they're interested in looking at the yarn before purchasing - so email me for further information on that - or leave a comment! That was the whole point of setting up the yarn room. After putting in all my inventory, there will be no room for my personal stash - so I'm going to have to come up with something for that. (Since my personal stash is still packed from the move. Eventually it will come out again, to be petted!
Tomorrow Sean & I are running more errands, and going to see Bee Movie for the Mom & Baby movie tomorrow. Tomorrow night, I'm going to Knit Night, and looking forward to it!
To all those celebrating Chanukah - HAPPY CHANUKAH! We forgot to light the candles before Sean went to sleep tonight, but we'll definitely do them tomorrow night before I leave to knit night. I also am a bad girl, and need to polish my menorah. It tarnished from last year, so I wasn't taking pictures tonight. Pictures of Sean's first Chanukah coming soon. I also plan on making Potato Latkes in the next few days... I've never made them from scratch before, I'm definitely looking forward to it.
