Richelle Turns 4

Richelle turns 4 last Wednesday, March 3,2010. We don't really have plans for her birthday so we consulted it to the celebrant on what she wants. And what she said is she wants to go to the mountain and to play on the snow. My husbands Aunt's and Uncle were here at the time so at least we have company not just us. We had so much fun and for a change and i could say it is a great idea. We just bought cake for her and some foods, i didn't prepare anything which is great :). Well one thing is my visitor watched what they were eating and they don't eat much and my husband and i don't want to end up eating what is left. Well we had so much fun sledding and having a party picnic at Prescott for a whole day and have a nice outdoor visit cause we stopped at Yarnell on the way home, there is a nice park that we liked over there. The next day the celebration is not over yet, we went to the Red Lobster for Richelle's birthday dinner. She is very friendly to the waitress, i think they get along pretty good. I a m so proud of her.. Her Aunt bought her a 2 brain quest booklet and she is doing great on it. Her Aunt says that she passed with flaying colors and that is for 4-5 toddlers.She said that Richelle is ready for 1st grade(her Aunt is a retired Elementary Teacher). I know i didn't teach her some of it. She learned it from the PBS kids on her computer and on TV.I could say that i recommend it to all the kids and it's a pretty good baby sitter hehe. She's gonna start pre-school next year well see, i know she's going to love it.

Mark Your Calendars: What's on Sale When

This is for all the shopaholic out there including me. For us to get a better price and discount this is helpful on when to buy a certain item in a lesser price. Have you notice whenever there is a season coming most stores packed with items fit for that season and when it is over their almost giving away on what is left for a cheaper price? And have you notice a lot of people are waiting for that time to buy for it even the season is already over? They'll buy it for the next year. So check this out and be sure to take a note ;).

Some other tips that don't fit neatly into the calendar:

Airline tickets tend to be least expensive to buy on Tuesday afternoon through Thursday. Worst days to fare shop are Saturday and Sunday.
CDs and DVDs generally come out on Tuesdays and might be on sale for the first one to three weeks.
Jewelry sales are common, except around Valentine's Day and the December holidays. So plan to buy early or hope that your beloved will settle for an IOU.
