I just can't help it

What can I say? I love getting good deals. I've come across some pretty sweet deals around town lately, but honestly haven't had any extra time to document them. I know you all love seeing them. Humor me, okay? :)

To put it mildly, our boys LOVE tractors. Anything that is not a car or truck, is a tractor. Our boys have a lot of toy tractors that they play with all the time. They even make tractor noises! Here are some photos of the boys checking out a tractor their Dad borrowed to cut some tall grass on our property.

2 years ago Today...

The Kesler Crew came home!
The photo above is the VERY first time that we saw our boys all together, side by side. This photo was taken February 4, 2008 at my parents house. It was the day that we brought our boys home and it was when I officially moved back home after being away for over 3 months.

Here are some photos of what our boys look like 2 years later! Such big guys!!! In the photo above the got in the chair by themselves to watch their favorite show - Yo Gabba Gabba. I rounded the corner and this it what I saw, so I quickly grabbed my camera to get this photo.
Here are the boys sitting at our table playing with some of their favorite toys - puzzles!
Time is flying by, but we are loving every minute of it. I can't imagine what life would be like with a single child - I think we might be a little bored! There is never a dull moment around our house and I don't think there ever will be. Our little miracles...oh, the stories we will be able to share!

We love being outside!

Grocery Savings

Above is a photo of my grocery receipt from last week. Can you believe the savings? I spent $67.44 and saved $72.50. That's a 54% total savings!

Our local grocery store ran a pretty incredible sale last week and I was able to "stack" almost all of my purchases with coupons. By "stack" I mean that I was able to use a coupon for almost every item that was already on sale! Some of my great finds were:

Oscar Mayer hotdogs
normally priced at $3.29/pack
purchased 3 for $.99 each

Pampers baby wipes
normally priced at $2.69
purchased 3 for $.99 each

Finish dishwasher tabs
normally priced at $5.69
purchased 1 for $.49

Yogurt (4 pack)
normally priced at $2.29/pack
purchased 3 for $.88 each

Goldfish snacks
normally priced at $2.00
purchased 2 for $.49 each

My local grocery store is running another great sale this week, so I am anxious to see what other great savings I can get. I'll try to get a picture of my items this time!

Real photos!

Here are some "REAL" photos of our boys that were taken back in November by our dear friend and photographer, Chris Jenkins. He and his son met up with us one afternoon while we were home during Thanksgiving and Chris got these wonderful photos of our boys. Chris is a dear friend of ours and we have a TON of his photography work around our house. Please be sure to check out his blog page when you have a chance to see some of his other work.

Chris, we can't thank you enough for these great photos! You were a champ to put up with us on this day. I had been up since 3am shopping and our sweet boys were WAY past their normal lunch time. It's hard enough to get picture of our triplets on a "normal" day, but Chris went above and beyond our expectations when he was able to capture these!

This is Chris' son, assistant, and our friend!





This one is my favorite! The boys are standing in front of a glass door and Chris was on the outside taking this photo. P's face is smooshed against the glass - just adorable!
