Wal-Mart list...

So I have a shopping list (or should I say the one stop shopping place where you can go in and spend an entire paycheck...Wal-Mart list) that is always a work in progress. When you use the last of something, write it on the list; when you want something, write it on the list. If it's on the list and can make the monthly budget then it's purchased. Not on the list, not purchased. Well it's taken like 10 years to train my husband on this concept and only 6 to train my son. I guess I should be happy with small improvements!

I have to show you the list for a couple of reasons. One, because it's just so stinkin' cute that Lance is actually following my requests and putting items on the list. Two, because not only am I excited but Lance is beside himself that he can read and write. I'm amazed at the leaps and bounds he's made this year in Kindergarten!

Michael is the Cinnamon roll king in this house! When you smell those sweet, gooey rolls it's a true sign that Dad is home!! I DO NOT make them...AT ALL! It's a special thing that the kids and Michael share with one another. Well, Dad came home from sea and the first weekend he had at the house they made the cinnamon rolls. That same morning I noticed the list...
(I must also add that Celeste added the milk, colored paper and eggs!)
I think he's ready for Dad to be home for a little while...he's stocking up! Hey, the word is "somewhat"phonetically correct AND he did it all by himself! What else can I ask for!?! He was so proud of himself! Even more proud when the list payed off... Thank you Lance for bringing a smile to my grocery list! :)
