White Christmas!

This year Helaman and I celebrated our first white Christmas together. We stayed with the Ericksons in Sandy, Utah and took advantage of the close proximity to the ski slopes. I'd never been before! It was fun.
At least I didn't spend too much time sitting on the snow like that person on the left...

We weren't the only ones out in the snow. I couldn't resist this snow suit on sale at Kohl's. Charlotte was nervous about the snow at first, but came to love it and still asks where the snow is now that we're back in Texas.This feels weird!

Deal Alert/Tip. Gap/Old Navy/Banana Republic has a price adjustment policy within 14 days. I bought Helaman a great wool coat for our trip to Utah (and the fact that all he has are ghetto coats). I knew the price would go down after Christmas though, so I saved my receipt and brought it back to Gap on the 14th day and got a $17 credit even though the store didn't have any more of the coat. This even worked for a Halloween costume I bought for Charlotte this year (for next year). I brought back the receipt and asked for a price adjustment after Halloween and sure enough got one, though the clerk gave me a hard time. You can't argue with policy, though. :)

Anyone else get any good deals for Christmas? We were snowed in the day after Christmas, so we couldn't snatch up as many post-Christmas sales on decorations and such as I would have liked, but at least I have enough wrapping paper for next year...

Being cold sounds SO very nice. I must say I have been enjoying the sales this last week on gymboree and jjill.com - pretty good ones.
