Love it or Hate it?

Black Friday you love it or hate it?
Do you get all excited and plan out your route? Do you go alone or with a friend or you mom?

OR would you rather have a root canal? Do you roll your eyes at the ludicrous people who get up and wait in the lines?

I had actually never participated in Black Friday until a few years ago. The first year I went alone. I got back about the time my family was getting up. The next year I went with my best friend. We mapped it all out and hit each place we wanted to. We ran thru the doors at Target and screamed with the best of them. It was so fun! Last year I was a week post-pardum, so I didn't go.

This year...I'm still up in the air. We are going to be at my in-laws, in a small town. To get to where the big sales are, we will have to leave even earlier. I've seen some of the ads. A cricut at Walmart for $188. Razor scooters for $20 at Target. Tons of others.

So, I'm wondering if you are going. Or if you read this after the fact, what you did. What deals are going for or did you get? Share!!

Millie Grace is 1

I can't believe its been a year! What a wonderful year it has been to have the joy of Millie Grace added to our family. Here are some facts about her:

She LOVES her siblings. She calls all 3 of them "bubba" which Hattie doesn't love.

She sleeps wonderfully. Naps like the text books say she should.

She eats more than any of the other kids. I'm sure that will taper, but for now, she's bottomless.

She has an obsession with clearing things, like the coffee table, bookshelves, etc.

She makes funny noises, like, "ooh?" and "muh?" all the time.

She is a sheer delight!

We are so thankful to have her in our family.

She really enjoyed her cake!
