went to a massive community garage sale in the area this morning and scored my toddler's big christmas gift:

it's the Savannah dollhouse by Kidcraft - full price it goes for $150 at most retailers and i snagged it for only $45!!!   comes complete with furnishings so all i need to buy are the dolls :)

i also managed to get a bike trailer to tow my little Peanut around behind my bike in for $5 (it's super dirty and needs a little TLC but otherwise works just fine); i got a Safety First bed rail for a friend for $2; and i got several dress up things for Peanut (Alice in Wonderland, Cinderella, Fancy Nancy, a cheer outfit and a bright pink feather boa) as well as a few puzzles and a board game, all for around $25.

my mom came along (she'd never been) and wound up getting two solid wood rocking chairs that she's planning to refinish and paint white for her front porch and an exersaucer and oodles of baby clothes for my niece.

all in all, it was a VERY productive morning out!  the dollhouse alone made getting up early on a saturday morning worth it.

but now i need a nap...
