Black Friday to us has never really meant more than an extra day off of work or a day to spend lounging around decking the halls. In the past we've done plenty of Internet shopping on Black Friday, but we certainly don't join the crazies trying to grab the deals!
We had a casual morning and got to work quickly putting away all the Fall decorations and making room for Christmas. We got a lot done but then put everything on pause & headed to my in-laws house for Thanksgiving #2. Hubby spent the afternoon with his dad supervising the kiddos while I worked in the kitchen with my MIL & SIL. We had a wonderful Mexican feast since we were all a little ham & turkeyed out.
Elyse had a fabulous afternoon playing with her cousins...she loves those boys!
|Crawling on Jackson...|
|A Hunter Sandwich with Jackson & Mamaw as the bread! ha!|
|All the kiddos playing with Mamaw & Lucy|
|"Hi Santa, nice to meet you..."|
|"I've been a really good girl this year, can I have a hug?"|
|"Whoa Santa, that's a BIG hug...can we slow down a bit?"|
|"Oh wait, you mean it's time to cuddle for naptime? I'd love to take a nap with you Santa!"|
We ended up having lunch with my parents and Elyse even got a little crazy on her piano after Papa stuck a tutu on her head!
|Seriously, I get the best pictures of these two together! My loves!|
|Checking out the beads...|
|& the lights...|
|Are you sure the garland has to go on the tree?|
|Finally the finished product, after Hubby took Elyse from the room and I was able to actually hang the garland on the tree.|
