I'm getting pretty bad in keeping up here and with other's blogs and I am so very sorry about that. It seems like something is always going on and I can't get to the computer. Anyways, I will try to get caught up this week, when the girls go back to school.
My thanksgiving was nice. Just a small family dinner with Dan's mom attending. None of his brother's wanted to come. But we had a big dinner. I fixed a 20lb turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, baked yams, green beans, cranberry sauce, coleslaw, and we had pumpkin pie with cool whip afterwards. I was so tired after dinner, I put the kids to bed and layed down myself at 8pm. I woke up at 2am and stayed up til 6:30am. Emma and I were going to go shopping at 4am, but she looked so peaceful sleeping, I didn't wake her. Instead we went shopping at noon at Target. My gosh was is crowded. Emma and I sat and had lunch first. We hadn't eatten and I was pretty hungry. So for 5.49 each we got a combo of 20oz drink, personnel pan pizza and 3 breadsticks with dipping sauce from the pizza hut there. I must say it was excellent too. So afterwards we start shopping. I bought Rebecca a Barbie VTech Laptop, scooter, giant horse and a huge doll that goes with it. She still wants barbies and socks. I read her letter to santa, lol. She asked for socks, lol. I'll get her all kinds of colors in them. So, I'm shopping away, and all of a sudden I hear a bunch of yelling and people are running. Then I hear my daughter Emma yelling......Mom. So I turn towards her and she is yelling stay there mom, don't move, and she comes over to me. She said there was a fight in the stuffed toy isle. Two women were beating each other up with their purses and throwing each other down, one of the women was bleeding. What were they fighting about? ELMO!!!!!!!!!!! One of the women wouldn't move so the other could get the doll and someone grabbed it. Needless to say no one got to keep their shopping carts of purchases they wanted to make, because both women were escorted out of the store. Emma and I finished our shopping and left.
Well, dinner is just about ready, but the coffee is done now, so in I go to get me a cup before Emma says it's ready. Take care, enjoy your week.
