Black Friday

You know that time of year when all the crazies come out and stand in a big ol long line at 3am waiting and hoping that they get that ONE special gift. Ya well, those crazies would be me and Jodi this year. :D It's been a tradition for us for at least the last 6 years or so. Yup, we were in line for Target at 4:30 am. We were about 50 people back in line. The store didn't open up until 6. It was 30 degrees outside, windy, with snow flurries. The line reached all the way out to the interstate they said. I could only see to the end of the building. I'd estimate that it was a good 500 people at least. The doors opened right on time at 6am ...... then the pushing began. I could have literally stood in one spot and I would have been pushed all the way into the store without moving a muscle. It was crazy! I was able (I mean Santa was able) to snag all the presents for girls. A wagon for Phoenix and video rocker chairs for both Jazmin and Jacey. A couple of dvd stocking stuffers and christmas is offically done! We checked out fairly quickly. There were STILL people coming in from that big ol long line outside. After target we hit Sears and Jodi picked up some tools and some clothes. Excellent prices on them all! Then it was onto Joanns. We had to make a quick pitstop at Starbucks to warm up first though. Joanns was having excellent deals. I got .99 cent a yard flannel to make the girls and daddy some pajama pants. Next on the list was Michaels. Didn't find a whole lot there. Just some wreaths to make a big ol Mickey head. I'll have pics of that real soon. :) And last but not least.....Hobby Lobby. Once again I was able to snag some ultra cheap fabric and an adorable ornament. Pics of that to come too. :) The van was quite a site. Filled from top to bottom!! I could barely see out the back! Those big ol boxes that Santa got sure took up a LOT of room. :) It was almost 1pm before I got home. A good 8 hours of shopping. Pure bliss! I'm off to bed now. I'm pooped!!!
