I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We sure did! We celebrated in Tennessee on the Friday before Thanksgiving, served dinner at church on Thanksgiving day in Ohio for people who didn't have somewhere to be, and then celebrated with our family in Ohio on Saturday after Thanksgiving. So needless to say, we are full!
The tradition was started this year to serve on Thanksgiving day. It was so rewarding and I do hope we continue this next year.
My sister-in-law and I went out on Black Friday, as we do every year. We left the house at 2:30 and got home around 5:30. We had our plans all laid out in order of importance/stores opening/must have. We started out at Kohls, then on to Home Depot, Staples, Toys R Us, Walmart, Macy's, Sears, Target, and then from there it is quite a blur!
So my goal was to be finished shopping on the day after black friday. Well, I have not reached my goal. I am super close. I thought we may be able to go to the Christmas Story House on Sunday so I could shop at the gift shop-but it looks like we will be going after Christmas instead. Thank you to Susan over at Between Naps On The Porch for showing homes from movies. The Christmas Story House is super close to my in-laws and my husband and brother in law are quite the fans!
As of now my entire house is decorated on the inside. The outside hasn't really been started (this is my husbands department). Hopefully soon-it has to be soon, there isn't much time left!
I would be able to completely finish my goal today of having all gifts wrapped and bought-but I am sick. Seriously sick. I feel terrible, and super tired. This is hard for me! So please pray that I get better quickly because time is of the essence!
Lay in bed!
I know I can get the second part of that list finished! We will see about the first part :)
