Thanksgiving/Black Friday/Weekend Recap

That's a long title for no more than I have to post about :o)

*Dave started Thanksgiving Day out by running in a Turkey Day 5K. 

*My parents joined us for Thanksgiving dinner.  Dave made a 19 pound turkey.  Yes, a 19 pound turkey for the four of us.

*I did some Black Friday shopping at Wal*Mart here in town.  Ugh, worst experience ever.  I did get the sheets I wanted but that was all.  There were too many people to even want to look for anything else.  I also went to Sioux Falls with my sister-in-law and niece to hit the midnight sales.  Craziness.  I bought very little but the people watching at the mall was great.

*I saw this chick while I was waiting in line at Bath&Body Works.  Her whole group was dressed in camo with the black under eye makeup.  I saw lots of groups dressed in themes at the mall but this one was the best.

*I put up the Christmas decorations on Friday.  I told my friend Nicolle that I feel like we have our Christmas decorations up in March or something.  It doesn't feel like Christmastime at all. 

*We had a Thanksgiving meal with Dave's family on Saturday. 

*We spent Sunday being lazy and recovering from all the food/shopping  ;o)

Have a good week!

We had our first snowfall of the season today.  It didn't amount to much; just enough to cover the grass and leave a light sprinkling on the rest of nature.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas :o)
