What a day....

I'm wrapping up a day that started like this...

And ended somewhere around here...
 Full of cuteness but evidence of the day showing itself pretty clearly.

The kids all had marvelous days at school so we capped dinner off with this:
Now the house is quiet, and as clean as it's gonna get... resting for what's to come tomorrow.
As for me, I have about 5 hours before I do it all over again!
So, goodnight and blessings to you and yours!

Thanks and Soccer

Wow! Y'all have been awesome shoppers! A big thank you from me, my closets and my husband!!
I have boxed what was left away. We went from 9 large tubs down to 4- woohoo!! But, if you see something that is still posted and you would like it, just leave a comment and I will pull it out. 4 boxes are much more manageable than 9!

Now, onto other news. The first week of kindergarten and phase in for preschool is over. whew! What a whirlwind week! We have all been exhausted! But, we know we will eventually get the hang of this, right? The girls have also gotten back into dance full swing, and my monkeys have taken up playing soccer! What a sight! They even had their first game on Saturday and it was sooo much fun!! I will have to post some pics of that after I get them out of the camera. Soon, I promise!
For now, I hope the first day of practice will do.
 making sure I am still watching...
 practicing "toe taps" I'm sure that's not what it is really called,but since I don't know the real name, toe taps it is!
 I'm not sure what they are doing here, but since Monkey See is still smiling, it's a win! 
 again, pardon my lack of soccer knowledge...but I think they are dribbling?? hehe!
 this looks like a kick!
 and this is definitely someone losing the little patience they had to start off with!
 entertainment by Puddin. Bud is not too happy about it so he is
"blowing the house down"... it gets messy!
 still smiling!
apparently they are having a discussion about something...maybe it's the technicalities of the game so they could share them with me! Especially since while walking up to the field for Saturday's game Monkey Do said, "I weally hope I get a touchdown today!"
oh boy!

Virtual Yard Sale- Girls

ok- I have removed the items that have been paid for, hoping it will make it easier for you to shop. Some things I had leave posted becuase either they have not been paid for yet or the picture was taken with another item that has not been purchased.
I plan to pack it all up and take it to consignment or back to the attic on Monday so this weekend will be last call!
Please tell your friends and neighbors to come and shop! I would love for all of this stuff to find new homes!
Thanks so much!!

* Udate-Update** The new listings start at #60. I will NOT be able to get invoices out tonight but I will tomorrow, probably around naptime. If you could please pay those through paypal that would be great! For those of you coming to pick up, I will be home everyday this week after 3:30. (thanks kindergarten! ha!) If I am shipping your items, please include your shipping address so I know where to send it and how much to calculate for your shipping costs.
THANKS SO MUCH! Y'all have been awesome!

**UPDATE... I found a few things in the dryer! HA! I will add them when I add the shoes. (A couple of dresses in there too!)

Ok, here are the girl items that I still have available. Many of  you have requested 2T and 3T but my little Daisy is still in those sizes too. So I pulled some of the things that she had duplicates of (yes, duplicates) and some of the things that don't coordinate w/ her brothers or sisters (yes, I still make them "match"- but really, they like it!).
Feel free to tell your friends and neighbors! I want to take back my closets and attic space!!!  I'm not sure how long I will leave this and the boy sale up, but I will let you know... I'm thinkig a few days and then we are off to the consignment stores and goodwill with what's left.

As for Pj's. I didn't list them because there are just too many. I donated a tub of newborn/baby gowns and sleepers to a ministry with our church last week so most of what I have in sleepers is 12m and up. If you are interested in those let me know and I will try and do a sperate email for that.

If you are new here, Welcome! I'm so happy to have you shopping!!! Below are the "game rules"... ha!
I hope everyone finds something for their little ones!
Here's how to play:
1.If you see something you like, leave a comment with sold, the # and your email.
2. I will send you an invoice and we can clean out my closets!! YAY!!!
3. If you are local and prefer to pick up rather than have me ship, just let me know and we can make those arrangements.
4. As far as shipping goes, I will try to package the items in brown envelopes and ship that way (typically cheaper) so it shouldn't be more than a couple of dollars.
5. Only mark it sold if you really want it! If you decide to pick up, I will need all items picked up with in 1 week.
6. If this works out then I will also do this for spring items too!

Also, I have checked and rechecked and checked again for spots or problems with all of the items listed. The only things I have listed that have "problems"  are some of the shoes with scuff marks. I don't mindmy girls wearing shoes like that for play time outside or on playgrounds so i went ahead and kept them and they are listed at a very fair price.

Finally, Bishop dresses, (a big favorite of mine and my girls wear them alot!), are typically pretty expensive (anywhere from $45-$85/dress) due the the smocking on them as well as the long wear you can get out of them. They are usually oversized and are a classic "grow with me" dress. So, most of the time you can get a couple of years wear out of them. Daisy still have a couple 18m bishops that she is wearing and Puddin has some that are 4T's that she can still wear. So, they are priced a little higher than most dresses, but you will find that with most of my boutique stuff.
