Last year we were busy moving, having a baby, adjusting to life. So when we woke up mid October to chilly weather that didn't go away for a month, I was unprepared. The kids had no pants or shirts that fit them from the previous year. This year I shopped for pants all summer long and got some great deals. Each of the kids has a tub of winter clothes under their beds. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy just thinking about it!
