My Filofax Week #51

This week I tried to really enjoy my family time. Sometimes doing these things makes me feel like I'm going on a mini vacation. On Wednesday, we went to watch "Disney on Ice - Rockin' Ever After" at the Honda Center, in Anaheim, CA. My oldest daughter has a very long winter break, since last Thanksgiving November 22 until Jan. 13, 2014. So, it can be very difficult at times to keep her entertained. The last time I saw Disney on Ice was ages ago, probably when I was around her age. It was nice to see it again, but this time as a parent. It was also very gracious for my mother -in-law to purchase the tickets so that we could all go as a family. We also had been given tickets to the Disneyland Theme Park. It was a great day to go. Skies were clear due to the rainfall from the day before. Weather was nice, a bit chilly, but still sunny and bright. I love Disneyland in the Winter time, when all the holiday decorations are up. Everything looks like it's covered in snow. Even the castle and certain attractions are a special holiday theme.  We didn't get to stay long enough for the firework spectacular but we managed to experience the magic of snow! Yes, it snows in Disneyland! Something you definitely have to experience if you ever get the chance to visit during the wintertime. Although going to a theme park with kids can get pretty stressful, with meltdowns, and impatiently waiting in long lines. Seeing the joys on their faces when they get to meet their favorite characters, going on rides together, and experiencing the snow, just makes it feel worthwhile. That feeling of accomplishment as a parent, making your children feel happy and loved. I am very thankful to those who have helped us make it possible to give our children good childhood experiences despite our financial situation at the moment. 
I ended the week with shopping at one of my favorite stores - Target. Get 10% off your entire in-store purchase on Dec. 21 and Dec. 22 at Target stores due to the unauthorized access to payment card data in U.S. Stores. You can read more about this here: Important message from CEO
Combine this with Manufacturer's coupons, Target coupons, Target Cartwheel app, and 5% off using your Target RED card and you've got major savings! I managed to get a pack of 24 rolls of Angel Soft Toilet paper for $4 and some change versus $9+. Let's just say, I think we should have enough toilet paper to last us for a while.
