14th Penny Pinching Party

Tuesday, December 29, 2009

I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas. I had a great Christmas and enjoyed watching my 2 year old really experience Christmas for the first time (Last year he was too young to fully appreciate the experience). I am so glad that I got my 2 older kids gameboys for Christmas, because my son just had a tonsillectomy 4 days after Christmas. The gameboy has turned out to be a wonderful distraction from the pain. I wasn't the only parent that thought Christmas vacation would be a good time to schedule a tonsillectomy as they were very busy and the kids where coming in and out in assembly line fashion. Poor kids. What a way to spend Christmas vacation and welcome in the new year. Is there ever a good time for a tonsillectomy though???

If you are spending more time with your family this week like me, don't worry about linking up, we'll catch up with you next week. I have barely been in the blog world for the last week or so and am enjoying the time with my family. Have a Happy New Year!

Here are some of my favorite Penny Pinching favorites from last week:
(If I haven't been featuring your links, check to see if you are posting a link back to my party from your post.)

Check out this wardrobe makeover by Domestically Speaking. I am stunned at the difference and LOVE the finished piece. This is probably one of my favorite makeovers yet!
Sit Relax and Read linked up these cute winter wonderland cupcakes, but what I love most is that she let her daughter make them. I am trying to learn the patience it takes to let my daughter help me cook.

Isn't this personalized hand sanitizer by Little Lizard King the cutest! I love gifts that don't add to the clutter, but are useful and cute.

14th Penny Pinching Party!
