I had a great Thanksgiving this year. My family and I went over to some friends' house for a day of glutton and oh what fun it was! My hubby was so excited to get to fry a turkey. I must say, it was one of the juiciest birds I've ever had the privilege of devouring! We had all the fixin's as well. I'm still full from that day, but oh was it worth it.
Last Friday, I did what I had never dared to do before - I was at the stores before they opened to grab the good deals on Black Friday. I was up before 4am and was at Kohl's by 4:30 to stand in the freezing cold so I could get in early and buy up every Dora toy they had at half price. I got some good deals, people. I stood in line to check out there after about 15 minutes of power shopping then headed on over to Target where, after standing in line for more than 30 minutes and freezing even more, I got even more good deals. I was very pleased with my accomplishments on this fun early morning. After my shopping escapades, I'm 97% finished with my Christmas shopping. WOOHOO!!!
Tis the season to dress up my child in cutie patootie Christmas clothes and bows! I'm so excited!
Isn't she the cutest?! Her shirt shows a Christmas package with a tag that says "From Grandpa with love". Do you think if she wears that to see "GeePaw" this weekend that he'll give her a dollar? I think so!
We took a photo opportunity yesterday morning before church. It took a while to get Rachel to cooperate with Daddy and the camera, but I think we finally got something.....
Oh and the lovely little scrape on her mouth is where she decided it'd be great fun to whack her face into the stair case. Yeah, not so much fun after all. I thought that was such great timing here right before Christmas picture season and all. Oh well. It will be something we can always remember.
