Today being Black Friday we started the day very early. We love Black Friday. We are part of those nusto people who go out shopping before dawn and return 5 or 6 stores later. We love when we can go together, but we were apart this year. Luckily Teri was with our mom. They were at Penneys at 4 am and Micki was in line at Target at 330 am with her 2 of her sister in laws and her friend. (whom we fondly refer to as our triplet). I know I know, crazy. And we were both so excited to go that we didn't really sleep. Micki got a whoppin one hour of sleep and Teri got about 4. Teri hit Penneys, Target, Roberts, Ikea, Radio Shack and a photo shop. Micki hit Target, Walmart, Old Navy, Best Buy, Walmart again for a return, and Khols. We plan with our sister in laws to divide and conquer stores. We always divide up parts of the stores and other stores and pick up stuff for eachother. Last year we were together with our Mom and it was one of the most fun times we have ever had in a long time Black Friday shopping. This year we had a great time because we got everything we went for which never happens. :)
For the rest of the crazy day, after a short nap Micki took her 2 kids and 7 neices and nephews to the park and they had a blast. That is until the youngest one was a party pooper....literally. Then she brought them all home and fed them macaroni and cheese and hot dogs and applesauce. Dinner for 9 kids is a lot more challenging than dinner for 2 kids, for sure. It was so much fun though. Micki was so tired she went to the park in her pajamas. Oops....ran into some people from the kids school. Teri hung out with her sisters in laws and planned Christmas activities. She then watched Biggest Loser: Where are they now. Then did a craftastrophies that will have to be finished at a later date. :(
Here are some pictures from the park. We wanted to take pics of shopping but we were on a mission to secure our items.
Bonus feature: craft day video. We finally got this video uploaded. However there is a warning attached.....it's unedited and uncensored. :) Side note, the belch at the end wasn't either one of us. I think we were a little goofy by then.
