The total doesn't show that they charged us tax at all. There were quite a few swords and daggers that weren't as pricey but Hunter had a little extra money to spend. And, the sword that he picked out was pretty big and it was heavy so that probably had something to do with the cost of the shipping.
They did it right, then!!! We were told if you ship the sword to your home, you are not supposed to be charged the sales tax.

for saving $6 (I take it wherever I can get it)

What happy& warm Christmas pictures! I enjoy spoiling my kiddos too, but I'm running outta room with all of Kadence's toys!

Your ice pictures are beautiful! I love winter, SORRY! I DO and I think there isn't too much more beautiful than new snow & ice on trees.

I hope John's Mom will do better soon!

Wow, those are some lucky kids you have there. Santa has been so generous with them!

Your "ice" pictures have inspired me. I think I'll post a picture of the snowstorm we had just before we left for Disney.

I have the same race car baking pan as Lacey now has! I bake cakes and cupcakes and donate all the proceeds to the Alzheimer's Association. I was told to go into business for years but I didn't want my hobby to become a job, so in my head, donating the money to a good cause (especially one so close to my heart) keeps it a hobby. My mom is the same way with Santa. In fact now that I am older I believe in Santa more than I did as a kid lol. I just love the spirit of a kind stranger giving gifts expecting nothing in return.

Your new decorations are so nice! I love the three snowmen! So simple yet they definitely are festive! I am hopefully closing on my house at the end of this month and I am already planning on how I want to decorate it for Christmas lol.

David's Dream! He has some tools, if only we had a place for him to get them out and work. Woodworking is also calming for David.
Our house is just a single story and I'm pretty sure that when we are old, we'll thank ourselves that we don't have to climb stairs. I took a picture of the house when we had the freezing rain and sleet. I'll see if I can find it and post it for David to see.
I would LOVE a single story and I am fairly certain that David was envisioning that. I can't wait to show him the pics, he will love it. And Rachel is going to love that Mandolin, she wants one and a Banjo. One of these days! I couldn't believe all of the things in the pics I saw that my children like, our children would get along great I think. I LOVED all of the fun Christmas pics, as well as your new decor! I think it is marvelous you are able to keep the fun of Santa alive and that they had so much obvious fun with it all. And your family is so close!! How marvelous! Our "ice event" on Friday didn't even give us frozen trees...well, just barely! You definitely had more, though our streets were a nightmare. Carolyn's hats were cute (as was Beaker, can't show Rachel ) and your Mom's tree looked like she had a lot of Chrismon Ornaments on it...of course, my old eyes could have been playing tricks on me. Both of your trees were beautiful!



John's brother has a lathe but hardly even uses it. But, in his defense, they are building a house right now so he hasn't had any down time lately.
David would use a lathe daily if he had one, to turn his pens. How marvelous they are also building their house, that is just amazing to me! I saw many gorgeous pieces in your house I know John made!

Thank you! Every year, my Christmas tree has a different "theme". This year was fishing and camping. I even hung little fish bobbers on the tree.

Nope they aren't edible. But, the birds and squirrels sure do love them.

I understand completely about running out of room. When Lacey got married, Hunter moved into her room but kept half of his stuff in his old room.

I'd enjoy Winter more if we had pretty snow. If we ever do get snow, it's slushy, mushy stuff.

We talked with John's Mama last night and she said that she's feeling a bit better but that her right side feels heavy which is to be expected.

I always always overbuy for Christmas but it brings me such joy!

I'd love to see what kind of snowstorms ya'll get up there. Here, we just get a bunch of ice and rain.

I guess that I had never paid attention to the sales tax on the swords. I'm like you....I'll take that $6 savings!

How very very kind of you! Lacey bakes goodies for the kids' in their church or for friends. Baking supplies and cake pans can be quite pricey. Every time that Michael's would have a 50% off bakeware sale, I'd buy her something.

Thank you! I was proud of my decorations. John helped pick them out and said that he didn't want any "el' cheapo looking junk". Ohhhhh! I know that you're so excited about the house closing.

Our kids do have a lot of similar interests. Maybe one day, we'll all be at Disney at the same time and can meet each other.

John did make quite a few things that are in the pictures. He made all of the picture frames in the dining room, our dining room table out of an old barn that I used to play in as a child, the hutch in the corner was also made from an old barn and then the shelves in the kitchen which match the hutch.

Thanks Angie! Isn't it hard to choose from all of the delicious looking caramel treats?

Please do keep my mother-in-law in your prayers. She's already questioning why she has to go to the doctor again in a month for a check-up.
