Shop til you drop!!

Last Friday I took two of my favorite girls shopping. Lucy and Rachel are our babysitters. Our boys love them more than us! When they come over we can never tell who has a better time, the girls or the boys!

We are completely blessed to have them in our lives. I don't know what we would do sometimes without them! They are so responsible and well-behaved for their age. I have to give their parents credit for that! I was having a conversation with Trad about going shopping with them. I told him that I didn't think that I would ever volunteer to take two 13-year-olds shopping. They are the exception though. We would adopt them if their parents would let us!

Back to the trip...

I had mentioned to them that the new shopping center was open in Murfreesboro. They said that they would like to go and I told them that I would take them. It turned out to be Friday after they got out of school. They wanted to buy some Christmas presents and look around. I think we had the most fun in the Children's Place. We all love that store. We went to the cookie store where they both got a cookie. Then we went on to the chocolate factory, where I got a raspberry truffle. :) We ran into some friends of theirs at Barnes and Noble. They had a great time showing Abby off. I didn't have to hold her the entire night. From there we went on to Old Navy, the mall, and finally Target. We all found some gifts, so I guess we were successful.

I had a really good time. I was really sick with a sinus infection. I actually still have it. I didn't want to disappoint them by postponing the trip though. It was good for me to get out. It took my mind off my pain for a while. Hopefully we will be able to go shopping again soon!
