Would you look at that? YOU did that.
That's $2425.60 worth of toys. Well, actually, it's more like $3000 or so worth of toys because I *LOVE* playing the How-Many-Discounts-and-Deals-Can-I-Find Game on Amazon and I *LOVE* coupons (never ever go to Target without checking their site for coupons first, people). This year's coupons and free stuff total went over $500. Just thinking about it gets me all giddy.
In case you were wondering how tall and wide that was, here, have a 4-year old to give you some scale:
She was trying to figure out what in the pile was meowing. She eventually found it:
A FurReal Friend in the form of a big fluffy white kitty. After having it in my car for an hour today, I can now honestly say I will destroy anyone who ever gives one of those things to my kid. I'm truly very sorry to anyone who ends up with one of them in their house because OMG THEY NEVER SHUT UP.
Anyway. Back to sunshine and fairy farts.
All that stuff got loaded up into the back of a truck today, covered with a tarp thanks to the lovely rain (OMG, THE RAIN!), and then was attacked by a pallet of art easels at IKEA. It was sort of magical. Then it all made it's way to Toys R Us where several really fantastic and amazing and kind people took time out of their day to help me spend another $790.
That's their "I'm pretending I'm not ready to scream" faces. Let's just say SLOWEST. CASHIER. EVER.
After that was all done, we headed over to Stuff a Bus and, well, we stuffed a bus. A whole bus.
A. WHOLE. BUS.
There's video of some of the magic over at 96.1's website. Not shown is the FIVE other vehicles we needed to get it all there.
Y'all are the bestest.
And there's still more Christmas Crazy to come.
