The Yard Sale

My parents are out visiting for a week and a half, so I expect that I won't blog much, but I had to put this in here.
Saturday, close to noon, we all decided we'd like to go garage saling. We started with one down our block where I found kids hangers for 50 cents. Then we walked to one a couple blocks over where we found a weed eater for Colin and a Mexican train set to go with dominoes, boy is that fun! Ian loves that it has a button you push and then it sounds like a train. Then we went to a couple more yard sales. At the last yard sale we found some books, binoculars for Ian, some kitchen stuff, toys for Ian and a nutcracker. I paid 13 dollars for all of it. I came home and looked up the nutcracker on the internet. It's worth around 200 dollars. There had been another one, too. So Colin went back and bought the other one. We still haven't found the second nutcracker online yet, but both of them were made in West Germany.
You never know what you'll find at a yard sale!
