Random thoughts

Well it has been 2 months since my last post. I don't even have pictures today, maybe Sunday. We had a great Thanksgiving with family and a fabulous Black Friday. It started at 4 am at Target this year!! My sisters and I got the free bag, then were part of some madness grabbing items. I think people were polite--just excited to get their stuff. We were successful at Target. While we were at Target, Nick braved Walmart--he was also successful. I can't yet reveal what, but we were all impressed that he got almost everything he was planning to get (just missed one item); plus a few more things not on the plan.

Christmas is coming upon us quickly!! What is your favorite way to shop? Mine--anyway that gets a good deal. I love Black Friday. I love on-line deals; I love combining sales with coupons! Do you have your Credit card number memorized? Well I do now; I think that means that I have done a lot of ordering on-line!!! But they were all excellent deals!!

What do you get your Dad? Mostly my family reads this blog, but I'll ask anyway. Is dad always the hardest person to shop for?

One more thing: Swagbucks. Have you heard of this? I just joined in late October. I have already earned $10 from Amazon, and on to another $5 from Amazon. I just search the internet using their Search Engine, and I earn Swagbucks. Try it out (please let me refer you :). So if interested send me an email, I'll send an invite).

Yes-there's no question YOUR dad is the most diffcult person in the world when it comes to finding a Christmas present he might like.

yes, finding something for Paul's dad is hard b/c it seems like he has EVERYTHING already! Glad you had a good Thanksgiving and I was thinking about you the next morning. I did not put on my velour suit and venture out ;) I want to see Halloween pics! We have been wondering what the theme was this year...

Too bad we didn't take photos of our annual Black Friday standing-in-the-freezing-cold tradition. Yep, dad is always the hardest to shop for. Where oh where can I get "world peace"?? You can always try the wrap up an old library book trick. :)
