The sun was out almost all day today! I saw the kids this morning, came home and had some lunch then I headed to the market. Oh how I wish I had taken the camera! Today was poultry day at the market, chickens, turkies, pheasant. You name it, they had it! All displayed on the sidewalks, cardboard boxes and tables of the vendors.....some had guts, some had feet still attached, some were stuffed for your convenience with carrots and guts! Very interesting indeed....
I found shoes for the kids, I hope they fit. The drawings we made of the kids feet were not that helpful, so I just guessed. The nice lady I bought them from tried to help me, I was able to tell her I needed them for a 2 year old boy and 3 year old girl. I think Sawyer's may be a little big, but we can stuff the toes or something and then maybe he will get a little more use out of them. Kenzie is going to be stylin', she got some tall lace up black ones! (don't worry Jon, they have a zipper on the side!) I also got him one pair of tights and her two, they are alot cheaper here than at home and they are nice and thick. I wasn't going to get him any because he won't be wearing them at home, but they are so used to being bundled up I'm afraid he will freeze! Which leads me to my next purchase..... some insulated pants for each of them. It ended up being about $50 dollars for everything, so not too bad.
