Today, I was an early bird...

... and I definitely got the worm!

My sister and I hit the Samko & Miko Toy Warehouse Sale in Ottawa this morning.  It's opening day, and we got there around 7:30am (which meant I had to drag my butt outta bed at 5:00am!!).  There were already a few others waiting.  We got out, waited in line for a bit and entered the big doors!  It was awesome!  Rows & rows of toys, books, games, art & crafts... and all at discount prices!  I was in heaven.

We each grabbed a couple of big red plastic bags that are provided, and started down the aisles.  In less than a hour we had our hands (and car!) full of goodies for the kids.  Best of all, we were in & out within an hour.  I had been warned by others who have gone in previous years that I could spend hours in line waiting to pay - yikes!  I'm happy we decided to go as early as we did on opening day, it was an enjoyable shopping experience, and I'm proud to say that I've completed at least 75% of my holiday shopping.  Not an easy feat to do in an hour!

The kids are going to loooooove what Santa is bringing this year! 

I still have a few stocking stuffers to pick up, and maybe 1 more 'big' present for each kid... but I still have some time to get that done!  ;)
