No Black Friday Here!

I do not shop the day after Thanksgiving. I also do not put up Christmas decorations on that day. (Although Sweetheart and Zach are putting lights up outside)
I spend the day after Thanksgiving the same way every year. Doing whatever I want!! This usually means sewing, or reading or watching movies...most of the time it is a combination of the three.
Our thanksgiving was wonderful as always. I did not get many pictures. I was too busy enjoying the day. I forgot to bring my camera out until the day was almost over.
Sorry for the blurry pics. I really need a new camera. My 8 year old niece, Casey, made turkey headbands for everyone. She had a STACK of them. Bud and Rachel look cute in theirs.
The little kids got Kyle to color with them for a while.Kyle is a great big brother, but an even better Uncle!!!Emerson adores him, as does TJ. Emerson loved her new dolly.
But she loved her Pumpkin Pie even more!!!!!! That's my girl!!!

Enjoy your day! I never did Black Friday sales when I lived in the US, and I'm sure not doing them now - the waits at the border crossings on this day are hours - yes, that is plural - hours long. Even at 4:00 in the morning. Then there's the wait coming back into Canada - again, hours long. There's no deal good enough for that! LOL

Same here- I decided I did not want to go anywhere today, not even to the grocery store (and I need groceries) tomorrow will do just fine. I took a walk with my sweetheart and a nice afternoon nap. Trying to convince myself to mop the floors next...

PS Rachel looks darling with dark hair!

No shopping for me either, those people are nuts waiting all night to buy something, I'd rather pay full price. Your Thanksgiving gathering looks so wonderful...I miss my family boo hoo LOL.

I don't shop on Black Friday either. I try to finish my Christmas shopping much earlier since I shop all year. I had the gifts wrapped for son and family to take back to Texas with them. They shopped for us while they were here and wrapped those so no one has to mail packages this year. Saved a bunch of money that way.
I know how much cooking you did for your family so having Friday to do what you please is a good thing.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Bren~ No Black Friday shopping for me either. Friday is my regular grocery shopping day and I postponed it until Saturday just to avoid the people trying to buy some kind of discounted garbage!! Only 19 more days till Mattie comes home and I am ready right now!!!!
Glad you had a nice Thanksgiving, ours was wonderful as well...
Blessings,Joann
