Wrap Up & Decluttering...Day 357

So, I left off with saying goodbye to Sparkles Christmas morning. After breakfast, we began preparing lunch for my side of the family. They came up from Southwest Arkansas for a few hours :o) The kids LOVE having family over to our house!

Baby boy was so worn out from all of the Christmas excitement that he didn't get to open very many of his presents Christmas night...but he made up for it the next day :o)

After breakfast and Baby Boy's presents, we decided to drive to a nearby town and check out the after Christmas sales...

I was excited to find some great Christmas decorations on clearance!

Today, I spent the entire day doing one of my very favorite things...decluttering and getting rid of stuff!

Five bags of clothes to donate...hopefully that will be more after hubby signs off on some stuff of his tomorrow :o)

Five bags of trash which equates to clean closets, clean drawers, clean cabinets, clean toy boxes and clean shelves. I am one happy mama!

Are those North Face jackets? They make great jackets and backpacks... I have one of each. Also, I was wondering where you got your girls' bows. I LOVE big bows and the only place I can find them is at Dillard's.
