Success - Sort of

I spent 3 hours - THREE HOURS - shopping online. This takes a lot of time....when Internet Explorer went down...and I lost the shopping bag. Grrrrr....

THEN I went back and put it all back a second time. Goes much quicker the second time. I've ordered coats for all but Nolan and ski pants for all but Jared and I. I'm not sure where else to try for those last things.

I'm not sure I got the right size...but I measured everyone and went with their size charts...not at all the sizes I would have bought. LOL

Were the sizes bigger or smaller than what you expected?? I hope you went with the bigger choice since the kids are bound to grow in the 6+ mos to winter.... always better a little big then too small.... although even if pants a little short, they'll be fine as long as they can tuck in booots

Try Coles Army Surplus on N Chadbourne. They have a great array of snow gear some reasonable priced

Amazing Mama - {do I know you? I must, you live here. A mystery to figure out. LOL}

I didn't even know we had an army surplus here and I've been on Chadbourne hundreds of times. Thanks for the tip. I'm going to go check them out this week. I'll cry if they have all the coats and such...I went to every store in town I knew of.....

Sis:

Looking forward to seeing foto's of all of you dressed up to go out in the winter. For sure it will be cold. BUT you all likes the cold in Alaska so you will probably do real well in Japan.

I only had a few minutes to be away from Dad and while I was buying some new med's for him I shopped around. Went to pay for the meds's and had just enough cash for that but not for all the stuff I had picked out. Oh Well! They help it until I went home and got money and returned. I didn't even have the debit card. :):):)
