A little bit of catch up...

So, Black Friday was a huge success. It all started with the alarm going off at 3:45 am and I picked Trisha, my sister, up at 4:20. We were off to WalMart where we arrived at 4:40 and met our sister-in-law, Tanya, who had already been to Kohl's by 4:00. From WalMart, we headed to Target and arrived there just after 6:00. After Target, we grabbed a little breakfast from McDonalds and took it to Starbucks for a coffee break. After coffee, we hit the mall again. We were able to get everything on our list and we shopped until we dropped! I was home by 1:30 pm.

We spent the Friday evening doing some more decorating and tried to finish today but the cold and rain stopped us from getting the garland up on the front porch. Hopefully, we will be able to get that up tomorrow after church and then we can put all of these bins and boxes away. I'm ready for the clutter to be gone!

This afternoon, we went to the Silves Photo Studio for a family photo shoot. Tanya does such a great job with pictures. She has become quite the photographer. It almost felt like we were in the Sears Photo Studio. I have attached just a few photos. Of course, I'm not attaching the photo for our Christmas card. I will wait to do that until after the Christmas cards have been mailed out.

Makes me tired! I wish I had Christmas shopping to do - I really don't. I think we're giving the kids money and taking them down to the outlet mall the week after Christmas!
