They had driven all night so they decided to try to take a nap while we got ready to go. We had Thanksgiving at Brett’s apartment clubhouse, which is very luxurious and had plenty of space for the 25+ people that were coming to sit. It is hard to find homes in the family that will seat that many people comfortably. Plus, since Brett works there, we were able to use an extra oven in a vacant apartment for all the cooking that needed to be done. We got to the clubhouse around and that is when the party got started. I didn’t get near as many pictures as I wanted to because of how busy the day was but oh well, Lord knows we make up for it on other days. J We ate dinner at and it was delicious. We headed out at about 7 and went home. Emersyn was pooped from not really having a good nap all day so we tried to put her to bed and watched “Fred Claus” with Brett’s family. Emers was so tired that she was fighting sleep so Brett and I didn’t really watch much of the movie but from what I saw, it looked cute. We just love Christmas movies.

Friday we slept in a little and then ventured out into the Black Friday madness. I was saddened by the frantic feeling in the air. We got flipped off in the parking lot of Macy’s for no apparent reason. I heard a news report of a man getting trampled to death at a Walmart due to frantic shoppers. Two father’s shot and killed each other at a Toys’R’Us in
Okay, that is my rant. Anyways, we did partake in the Black Friday madness and got a digital frame that is now on our mantle, flashing the cutest pictures of our baby girl, as well as some neat pictures of us and our families in general. We got a really good deal. We also are on the hunt for a toaster oven but haven’t found the right one for the right price yet. Friday night we had leftover turkey made into a casserole type thing with Brett’s family and then hung out and watched tv at our house so that Emersyn could go to bed in her crib.
Today I am relaxing after a busy couple of days. Brett and his dad are going to watch the Civil War tonight at our house and I am going to finish decorating our tree and house. Brett started his new job today downtown. I am so proud of him and so unbelievably thankful for this promotion. God is so good and He always provides for all our needs.
