Grandma and Grandsons shopping adventure

Happy Birthday to me! Today is my birthday and I have enjoyed it very much. Justin took me out to eat this afternoon at our favorite barbeque rib joint, Sonny's BarbQ. We took Micki and the boys since Timmy was having to work. Yum!
The only downer on my birthday is, it's Daddy's birthday also. I miss him terribly. Love you Daddy. Happy 83rd birthday!
Micki was going to work this morning, so the boys spent the night and went to yard sales with me. We had a good time considering they are 8 and 12 years old!  Justin gave them $5 each and they were very good shoppers. The most money I spent was at McDonald's, buying them breakfast! $17!! Ouch!
    This is what Sloan bought (with a little help from Grandma):

This is Gavin's loot:

I found these Disney toys for Micki. I was secretly hoping she wouldn't want them :)

These are mine...

Yes, that's Captain Jack Sparrow and Will Turner!! All of these for $3.

Oh, and Roly Poly Olly and his sister..

A teacup pin cushion for Mother...25 cents
A labeler for $2..
Books..$1 each
Silk Orchid..50 cents
Autumn Leaf plate..$1!!! SCORE!!!
A Lenox swan..50 cents..

8 Fire King custard cups...50 cents!!

Glass..50 cents, metal pitcher.. 25 cents, butterfly hair bow...50 cents
Another gift box..$1
A faux fireplace..$2

Sloan took this picture of me and Micki. I had no idea she was making a face because I thought this would be a good picture of me and my daughter!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!
