Now, Izzy is a GREAT eater. She eats almost anything you give her, and she eats a lot of it! She will eat more than my niece and nephew, who are both 4, combined! So, he reccommended Pediasure supplement. Fine, great! I want her to gain a little mass as well!
Well, I get home and start figuring out how much this stuff is and where to get it cheapest to find that this stuff costs an arm and a leg. Rougly $2 per little bottle. Obviously buying in bulk is cheapest but not by much, and not knowing if she'll like it, well, I don't want to have cases of this stuff just sitting around.
Does anyone know where to pick this stuff up cheap (good store brands??). Does anyone know if boost or ensure is ok for toddlers?
Or, does anyone have any nice high calorie recipies for smoothies or something? Any help you can be would be appreciated! Thanks!

I'm really enjoying my new car. I've only driven it a few times, and it will take some getting used to. I love not having to bend over to put Izzy in her carseat. I love that I can offer to be a carpooler for other passengers too!!! We'll be taking it on our first road trip Monday when we go down to Mishawaka, IN to help my sister set up her first classroom! Should be fun!
Hope your day Glorifies our Lord today!

Amidst all of this chaos, I had forgotten about the auction today. The car we were going to be bidding on, was missed by our agent friend, so we were pretty sad, but knew we had a backup. Well, come to find out later, we were able to purchase the one we wanted from the guy who had won it in the auction, so a couple hours, some paperwork, a check, and a lot of headache later, I am now the proud manager (God's the Owner!!) of a 2007 Chrysler Pacifica. Like this:
Yeah for getting wheels and my freedom back. Needless to say, I'm exhausted and ready for the day to be over, but so excited at the same time. I'd like to go take a joy ride, but the kitchen sink is calling my name from under the pile of rubble I call dirty dishes.

I wish I could just go run errands when I need to.
Oh how I miss going garage saling!
When, oh when, will we find a car??????
Talk about a lesson in contentment and patience- I think I'm getting it God!!!!
Really, it hasn't been too bad. Its given me a good excuse to stay home and clean and play. No random shopping trips. Its been good. But its been three weeks, and well, I'm really getting sick of having to carpool to the grocery store. I hope we find a car soon.
