Mom: Should we stay still?
Me: Yes
Mom: Okay *starts swinging*
Me: No, I said don't move, now smile

Me: Hmmm - not quite...

Photobucket

Mom: I don't like that one - let's take another...
Me: Okay, let's do a funny face since you have a hard time smiling

Photobucket

Me: WHAT?! You were supposed to do a funny face!
Mom: I did
Me: No.. that's a perfect smile - next time I tell you to smile, do that...

There is not much on sale this week. Buy what you need, then save your money for better sales later! It is hard to judge what you should pay for sugar – depending on how much you have on hand, you might want to get enough to last until April. The best deals on sugar won’t be until fall. Cocoa Mix will probably not be on sale again until late November. Canned vegetables are sometimes a little cheaper but not much. Get enough frozen vegetable to last until Easter sales.
