thanksgiving & black friday festivities

The last few days have been absolutely insane around here. We spent our thanksgiving driving around from house to house as usual. We had lunch at my grandmothers, visited my mom that afternoon, and then drove an hour and a half to have dinner with James' family. It was busy and hectic but we would not have it any other way. Spending my holidays jumping around from house to house is all I have ever known and to me it is the holidays. It took James a little while to get used to it, since he grew up with  only one family event but over the years it has become the normal to him too. We never want to miss out on seeing family for a holiday so we always try to make sure we get to see everyone. A plus to it is all the yummy food we get to eat!!! Thanksgiving has a whole new meaning when you eat three of them in one day!!! So we spent the day visiting, eating and enjoying every minute of it!!! James and I have so much to be thankful for. We are blessed beyond belief for all of the amazing things that have come our way this year and Thanksgiving day is just a reminder to me to be grateful for what I have. I know God has a plan and all of the bad that has been happening lately has happened for a reason and we will be stronger and better people in the end. I am so lucky to have James here through it all. I have the most amazing husband a girl could ever ask for. He is the best and I am most thankful for him.

Then came the craziness... Black Friday shopping!!! We left Zachary around 7:00pm to get home around 8:30. We headed straight to my friend Lacey's house. They had already been to Walmart to get a certain toy and were dropping them off at home and heading out again. We spent the rest of the night shopping all over town. We ended up going to Target, Kohl's, Macy's, Old Navy, Walmart, Victoria Secret, JC Penney, and Big Lot's. We got home at 8:00 am!!! We went in with an open agenda and that was the key to having fun!! The only thing I wanted we ended up ordering Thursday morning from and didn't have to wait in a long line so the night was just fun!!! I sadly forgot to take any pictures to document our first Black Friday experience!! We were just too busy shopping our little booties off!!!

Today Christmas starts for us! James is helping his dad right now, then we are going visit my friend Lauren and her precious new baby girl and after that we are off to get our Christmas tree!!! We are both so excited. Christmas time is our favorite time of the year and James and I go all out!! This is going to be our first Christmas in our own house and we can't wait to deck it out. And to top our amazing holiday weekend off we still have one Thanksgiving to celebrate!! On Sunday my grandfather is having the whole family over and cooking another Thanksgiving feast for us!!
