BLACK FRIDAY was a BLAST!! A good friend, Lindsey, and I headed to the stores at 5am. (This being the first year for me to really commit to shopping, I was all set for 5am...only to find half the stores opening even earlier at 4am. I was prepared for 5, so we left at 5!) First stop...Walmart. GREAT SALES! Second, Toys R Us and Mervyn's(they are next to each other). Next, we were on to Target...pretty picked over by that point. Had time to kill before restaurants opened for lunch, so we headed to Kohl's...good sales, but line was too long...left our stuff there and headed to Joann's. Again, didn't want to wait in line for fabric to be cut then again in line to BUY it!! Ate lunch. Finally, we stopped by Walgreens and ended the day being pampered with a pedicure!! I personally recommend this for ending ANY shopping extravaganza!! It was a blast and we were home by 2pm!! That night we took Keat to BOUNCE U...a fun place filled with inflatable bounce equipment. He and Seth got all their wiggles out after being cooped up inside all day playing video games with Mike and Amy(Lindsey's family).
Saturday...I can't even remember what we did...OH YES...we went to a friends to watch the HOLY WAR...BYU vs. Utah State!! GO COUGARS!! Utah kept it interesting, but BYU pulled through victorious!
Sunday was the Francois family Thanksgiving...err...cook out dinner!! Instead of overdoing the whole turkey thing...we had steaks and potatoes!! It was delicious!! We took some family pictures that turned out pretty good and Keat and Carsten played around most of the day! It was a great time had by all!!
I can hardly believe we fit so much into four days...but it was so much fun and I'm DONE with my Christmas shopping!! YEAH ME!!
We are so thankful for so much!! We have been blessed beyond measure and continue to be given things we are so grateful for!! We love you all and hope that this season of Thanks was wonderful for you and yours!!
Here are some pics of the weekend!!
