Thanksgiving Weekend and Black Friday Shopping

Hi!  I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.  I know we did.  We had two family celebrations full of turkey, ham, and so many wonderful side items that I have been completely stuffed for several days now.  We still have so much ham leftover that I am going to have to freeze some of it.  Love that!  I have more than enough pictures of kiddos with mouths stuffed full of food.

E at the kids' table at my MIL's house - mouth full of food - lovely!

My nephew M at my aunt' house - mouth stuffed full of food - lovely. 

I think I caught most everyone with their mouth's full of food.  That means the food was good, right?

So, did y'all go shopping on Black Friday?  I did.  Wanna see what I got? 

Red Wii for $199 plus a $50 gift card to Wal-Mart.  Our Wii was broken and would've cost $100 to fix, so this was a better deal.  WOO HOO!

I got a few odds and ends for the kids.  My other great buy was for me.

I've been desperate for tall boots.  These were originally $100, but were on sale for $24.99 at J.C. Penney's.  Pretty good, right?  I got black and brown.  Woo Hoo!  It was definitely worth only getting three hours of sleep.

After five days the kids are going back to school today.  They were not happy this morning.  I was thrilled, relieved ready to get back into our routine.  I should have plenty of time to get my last few orders done this week.  Pretty excited about that.  I hate being behind. 

Also, my beloved Razobacks kicked LSU's behind this weekend!  WOO HOO!  I hear we might go to the sugar bowl!  The Hogs moved up in the rankings to #8.  Woooooo Pig Sooie!

So, did everyone else have a great holiday? 



  1. Great Boots! I recently got a brown pair of tall boots and loooove them. Have a great day!

  2. Shut Up!!! You got those boots for $29??? I'm so jealous! They are so cute!!

    Love the mouth full of food shots - great blackmail when they get older :)

  3. Tanya,

    So glad you had a great Thanksgiving week! yay! What adorable kiddos...your nephew has such a great twinkle in his eyes...I'll bet he's a little fun character. :D

    Sounds like you found some of the things you were looking for on Black Friday. Good job! We found a couple of things we were looking for while out for a few hours later in the day on Black Friday. It was good to get Will out of the house for a little bit. He is finally starting to feel better. Yay! and Whew!

    Well...Enjoy getting back into your routine! I have a new one...I am posting 4-5 days a week as a trial run for the month of December...started this past week. Keep me in your prayers! And I would love it if you stopped by when you have a chance to let me know what you think of all the new stuff! :D

    Blessings to you and your beautiful family!

  4. Cute boots, and that's a really good deal! No Black Friday shopping for me, unless you count half-off at the thrift store. Didn't really get anything much, though.

  5. I like E's outfit! So cute. Did you make that yourself?

  6. Glad your holidays were great and that you survived Black Friday!


  7. E looks adorable! I love your new boots. I still haven't found the ones I want. :s

  8. I'm jealous of those boots!!! I didn't go shopping on Black Friday. Well, not technically. We spent the day looking for refrigerators because ours has decided to go terminal on us.


  9. WHAT!?!?! I wish I'd known about that boot deal! I would have gotten a pair in black and in brown as well. I got some good stuff, but boots would've been nice too.

  10. Wow, you did well!!! I 'm jealous of both the boots and the Wii!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier!
