move it or lose it sister...

C and i took our first road trip on saturday!
4 hour drive to sioux falls, SD.
C slept the entire way!
we had wonderful 4 hour visit with C's great grandparents.
took 4 generation pics!!
then a 4 hour drive home.      
we went with my parents and sis.
i love all the pics we got.
they will be cherished forever! :)

i took cullen the MOA (mall of america) on sunday.
i was on a mision for next summer clearance clothes! 
i was initially there to browse around and take my sweet time.
then B called and asked if C and i wanted to meet for apps at a nearby place.
of course we wanted to see daddy B!
so we hustled our mall time and the place is huge and there was a lot of people there!
i was ready to run over anyone who got in my way ;)
didn't get to all the stores i wanted to but we can go back any day.
we did get a few good deals for next summer and i picked up a few basics for fall!

when we got home C was sleepy so i decided to organize all his clothes.
i took all his newborn - 3 month clothes out of his closet and dresser.
it was sad to get rid of so many things.
makes me realize just how quick time goes.
the pile stacked as tall as me! yikes!!
i need to get it all into bins.

then i added more of his bigger sized clothes to his closet.
it filled just as quick as i emptied it  ;)
baby C has LOTS of clothes!!
he is wearing 6 month clothes now and some 9 month as well!
he is 3 months and around 16-17 pounds!
i really can not believe how fast he is growing!!

also, recently i did some christmas shopping!
buy one get one free toys are too hard to pass up!
i cant wait for christmas!! 
C will be 8 months and i'm sure he will love wrapping paper ;)

i got a mom cut yesterday...
i'm kind of sad about it but my extensions had to come out!
i'm guessing i'll be getting extensions again soon ;)
i'll post a pic of the new hair soon!
and that's the end of my random post!
it's bath time for culley!

Mateya said...

Yay for Sioux Falls! :) I went to college there and lived there for a few years after. Now I live about an hour away :)

Love all of C's clothes!!

Justin and Jessica said...

We live in Sioux Falls! I hope you enjoyed your time here! :)

We used to live about 45 minutes from MOA - I sure miss that place! I'm jealous you live so close!

Ashley @ KiwisandCocktails said...

I just binned up a lot of clothes too- and many were never even worn because they were the wrong season for the right size :( Makes me sad. I gave some away, but I kept most just in case we have another girl. Is that why you kept all of C's clothes? I might consign a few too...but if we end up with another girl, I would kick myself for not having all the clothes! ha

Danielle said...

Haha I chopped off about eight inches of my hair a few weeks ago and considered it a MOM CUT move, too. It is SO nice to have it a little shorter now! Takes a little less time washing - and I'll take all the extra time I can get! :)

Kelly said...

Your family is so cute! I would love to shop for clearance clothes (or just step foot in) at Mall of America. Wish I didn't live so far away so I could go. Baby C is one lucky little guy.
