A bit more catch up from our holiday weekend.
I know some would say I'm crazy! Some would say, "why bother when you have on-line", but Black Friday shopping with my older kids has become such a fun tradition.
Caleb had to head back down to Portland Thanksgiving night for work the next day, and Matt also had to work so this year it was just Hannah and Dan and me.
The second store we went to had what I needed on my list, but not what Hannah and Dan needed. While our friends and I shopped, Hannah and Dan smelled all the colognes and fragrances - all the while vlogging about it!
They crack me up. If you want a laugh, check out Hannah's vlog here.
Also - how convenient to have Starbucks inside the stores! Hannah bought coffees for herself and JoAnna. When asked for the names for the order, Hannah replied with "Batman and Robin". The Dynamic Duo of Black Friday. 😁💪
While all these shenanigans are happening, at home, littles ones with Eric and taking things slow and easy...until we got home.
This year we had plans to get our tree later that day.
It wasn't raining! We found one that was just right.
but got caught.
Because of rain, we usually have to let the tree sit in the garage a day or so - so that it drip dries, but this time we didn't have to. 😊 Caleb returned for the weekend, and we spent such a nice Friday night as a family - eating Chex mix, and decorating the tree, and listening to our new Christmas music.
Which I am actually totally loving!
What about you? Do you have your tree up yet? Do you have a favorite Christmas tradition?
