Online Shopping...So Easy A Child Can Do It...

This past weekend we had some goals of things we wanted to accomplish. One of the major items was for us to take the kids out shopping for their gifts to each other. So after basketball on Saturday, we loaded everyone up in the car and went and had a wonderful lunch. After that lunch, we headed over to Target.

We were prepared for crazy busy – Christmas was two weeks away, and while it was cold, the sun was shining so we knew people would want to get out of the house. We were all talking and singing and whatnot when I realized that we had been sitting in the same spot on the road for a while. Then we looked around at the parking lots and realized that they were not just packed, they were FULL! And people were driving around just trying to find a spot. This was not just crazy busy, it was insanity! Horrible visions of us trying to navigate through a busy parking lot and store with four kids, one of which was a baby that probably wouldn’t last long, and knowing that we would have to trade off a couple of times so that all kids could get all presents for all kids started playing in our heads. So John whipped out of the line of traffic and turned around and headed home stating “we are going to go home and teach our kids how to online shop!”

So when we got home we put the younger two down for naps and John took Kylie upstairs to our computer and I sat with Josh on the couch with my laptop and we shopped! The kids had fun thinking about what they wanted to get each other and I liked that I was teaching them how to price compare and read reviews.

That night John and Josh went to the CBJ game with a friend and his son, so his wife and daughter came over to hang out with us while they were gone. We went out to a Chinese buffet for dinner and Ryan cracked me up when he exclaimed “Mom, this is the best broccoli ever!” Colton ate a ton of food…noodles, potatoes, cheese and melon. Then we all went home and after I put the boys to bed, I painted the girls’ nails

All in all, a really good Saturday :)
