Black Friday 2012

One of my favorite days of the year happens to be Black Friday. For the past several years Bob's sisters, mom, grandma, aunts, cousins and I go out shopping. Sometimes we go during the day, and sometimes we even start out Thanksgiving night around midnight. Two years ago when I was seven months pregnant with Isabelle we went shopping from 10:00 PM to 7 AM. My feet were killing me, but it was all worth it because we had a grand old time. Typically, our tradition is to find out how much each person plans to spend on us and then we go pick out things that we like and we come back together and handoff those items to somebody else to pay for it. It works out perfectly because people aren't wasting their money and we get things that we like! Pretty awesome!
Well this year our Black Friday shopping was--what we like to call--lame. Some of us were still up at Houghton Lake, some of us were in Lansing, some went out at midnight to shop for a few hours, and some of us have little kids so we had to wait until daytime. Not only that, but two of us had vehicles that were broken down that we had to take into the shop. So, I ended up taking the babies to the mall for about two hours, and that was the extent of our shopping. Lame! The one great thing about it though was that I did get to go with Beck and Rae. Hopefully next year will be better!
On our way home, there was a Santa outside so we pulled up next to him and he came to the car window to say hello to Isabelle.
