Happy Thanksgiving and BLACK Friday

We had a good Thanksgiving!! Chad and his brothers always start Thanksgiving Day with the Turkey bowl, they get a big group of guys together and play football. Then the rest of the day they try to pretend like they arent sore! :) We had Thanksgiving lunch at Chad's moms house. The kids always have so much fun over there! That night we had Thanksgiving Dinner at our house and then we played card games with everyone, it was a lot of fun! Then at midnight my sister and I decided to go to Fashion Place Mall on the spur of a moment and it was so crazy!!! I cannot believe how many people were there. We waited to get into the mall for about 20 min. and then we made it into ONE store! After that there was a line to get into each store it was ridiculous! Good News is, I got my kids new coats for buy one get one free!! When we were at Chad's moms earlier Rich had said if I go out shopping to get him a computer from Circuit City, so we drove by just to see how busy it was, and there were people in actual tents "camped out" complete with sleeping bags and fire pits!! So I am sorry Rich, I would have got you that computer but I didnt think to bring my camping gear! We hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving too!!!

Hilarious! Isn't BLACK FRIDAY great? We had our own version of the great holiday. We woke up at 3am to get to Kohl's opening at 4am. We had to wait outside too and it was freezing! So we started at 4am and didn't finish until 8pm! It was a blast!

That sounds like fun to me! I dont mind the crowds, as long as I dont have kids with me, otherwise I am paranoid that something is going to happen to them the whole time. Anyway, next year we should plan something out, I noticed a lot of people had strategies and game plans complete with cell phones and walkie talkies...let's do it!! Did you get a lot of stuff? good prices?? I would LOVE to know!

You know, we didn't buy anything. But we helped my mom complete her entire Christmas list for all the kids. She got great prices on everything. And yes, you have to have game plans to really make it worth it. My family goes every year, so we have learned the tricks. We had 6 people, 6 cell phones and 2 cars... we got everything we went for. :)
