Monday 11/19 – What a great morning spent at Lilly’s school for the first grade feast! All 101 first graders ate in the hallway at one big table and they were either Pilgrims or Indians. I was supposed to bring cookies or cupcakes but Lilly and I made donut acorns! In the afternoon her class was watching a movie so I put together the Paper bag Turkey full of popcorn for an afternoon treat for the class.
Wednesday night I spent the night doing laundry so Lilly could stay the weekend and Grandma and Papa’s. When did Wednesday before Thanksgiving become laundry night? I really wish some times I could go back to the college fun days because I loved Wednesday before Thanksgiving coming home and going out and seeing everyone home from college – always the best night! I think i need to better plan my calendar next year so we can do something fun!
Did you black Friday shop? Or Thanksgiving shop? What are they going to call Thanksgiving shopping at 8pm or 9pm ? I wasn’t going to go out on Thanksgiving because honestly, I felt bad for the retail employees who had to leave their families to head out to work! Well, they suckered us in with the deals!! On our way back (did I tell you with out kids!!!) we stopped at a target and were 70 in line!! Yippee, I could see the Target sign from my spot in line and we were the 3rd group into the store. We went for the holiday bundle on the XBOX and we were in and out of the store in 15 min!! Ended up with the holiday bargains of the XBOX bundle, new pots and pans (for us from Santa 😉 ) and the Brave movie and we saved a whole 163.17 for waiting in line not a bad deal! Another plus was it was 61 degrees on Thanksgiving here in Ohio so it made standing in line really nice this year! No weather elements to battle this year for those Black Friday!
