Shannon,Your boys are so darned cute!!! I love their big smiles.Thanks for the update on the no-buying. I think you have some valuable lessons and I am glad you wrote about them. It encourages me, as well. I like the wait 24hrs. and to PLAN AHEAD!! I am trying to re-do my mantle and armoire without buying anything. Well. except when I went to goodwill and found a fabulous silver candlestick. But goodwill is a good thing, right?!Lynnp.s. good luck on your peas!!
