Our Long Thanksgiving Weekend!

We had a great 4 day weekend. We had Abby's Papa Bear and Brianna's Grandma Deana over and had a traditional turkey dinner. We watched the parade in the morning and Grandma Deana spent the night.

On Friday morning Michele and I got up at 4:45 in the morning because we decided that it was a good idea to go to Wal-Mart on Black Friday to try and get a Leapster for Abby's Christmas that was discounted by $20.00. Grandma Deana watched the girls. It was an insane asylum with angry, tired looking people. I could totally see how people get angry and fight over toys in these situations, because there are body to body people, lines through the store and people are tired. I was so irritated by the situation that I could easily have been provoked into an argument with a total stranger. By the time we made it to the toys, the Leapsters were already gone. After that we spent most of the day shopping. We hit Target, Kohls, Gap, Gymboree, Children's Place, Borders and of course Wal-Mart. I got ALL of my Christmas gifts but one, and I have already wrapped all but 4.

On Saturday we cleaned up the house and put up the Christmas tree and other decorations. Due to the snow we still have not done the outdoor lights, but we will get to them soon. Then we ordered Pizza and watched the movie Elf with the girls.

Sunday we just had a relaxed do nothing kind of day at home. We enjoyed the pretty snow and cold weather by the fire and had warm toasty chicken corn chowder and hot rolls for dinner. A perfect end to a perfect holiday weekend. Busy, productive and lots of time with family. Life could hardly get any better. I am so blessed!
