It was SO nice to stay home for Thanksgiving this year. We have always traveled to our families (3 hours away). Thank you family for not being offended we didn't make it this year. I got to watch the Thanksgiving day parade on TV and Dan watched football .... we stayed in our sweats all day and relaxed - the way a holiday should be spent :0)
Today we ventured out to the Black Friday madness .... CRAZY! Dan got to Home Depot at 6 this morning - got what he wanted and was back home by 6:30. Caden and I ventured out about 7:30, went to a few stores ... hit Starbucks for an Egg Nog Latte (in a RED cup) for me and apple juice and lemon loaf for the little man ... went to a few more stores and we were back home by noon. The stores weren't that crowded ... however I think we got the new checker at each store we went to. The lines were SLOW! We spent the rest of the day pulling out the Christmas decorations. I have a *helper* this year, although my *helper* is a bit of a challenge :0)
