Weekend Wrap-up

Wow, we had a great weekend & I hope you did too.

Mr. Fix~it worked Saturday, & when he cam home we made the rounds dropping of everyone’s “stuff”.  Stopped in at my nephews house (the one that flooded)…..The clean up is done thanks to family friends and kids from you church youth ministry..the other family!  I was amazed at the damage, the force of the water pushed  his French doors, frame and all into the room against 30 inches of water already inside…but stayed connected on one side like a swinging door.  They have only been in the house about 5 years & are pretty devastated.  No flood insurance as that area has never flooded!  Insurance offers a maximum $5,000.00 payout.  That may replace the flooring.  not the walls or anything else. 

We took Erika her things after that & were invited to stay for Supper.  We were joking after words wondering if supper was a thank you for bringing our things or, an attempt to bribe us not to bring more!  Either way it was a wonderful evening made even better that Danielle was able to join us. 

Speaking of Danielle, I wanted to show you one of her cakes,

Sunday We shopped at Kohl's for a niece’s 1 Yr birthday gift and I just had to  pick up few outfits for Evie.  My total was $48.05, saving shown at bottom of receipt $68.94!  I love clearance racks!  Just goes to show the mark up in garments.
