Went to bed at 3:30 AM last night. I don't know why, but I just couldn't get myself to go to bed. Then I woke up at 8:15 and dragged myself out of bed to go to Walgreens. I wanted to get a newspaper and get some of their awesome deals today. They had most of their toys 1/2 price.
When I got home around 10:15 I checked my receipts and found 2 errors. So I knew I would need to go back. I wanted to double check when the luncheon was at church. I couldn't find my bulletin so I decided to check the church website. Greg had just left to go on a walk. I had remembered 1:00 in my head but when I got online it said 11:30. It was 11:15! I told the kids to hurry and get dressed. We rushed out of the house at 11:30 just knowing we were going to be late. Anyway, when we were almost there I found the bulletin and it did say 1:00! The website was wrong and we got there an hour early.
It was still nice. I didn't get any pictures. Being rushed like that no one was dressed for pictures. There was about 30 of us there and it was really nice! Then we went to Dana's house for dessert!
When we got there I taught Dana some couponing tricks. We left and went to Walgreen's and The men and the kids stayed home to play. I found some really nice knock-off Lego sets for only $10!!! And I was able to get something I had already bought for cheaper there. So I'll be doing a little returning this week.
Then we came home and I went out again at 9:30 for the 12:01 Walmart sale. I loved how laid back it was there. We were able to get the stuff in our carts way before midnight and just wait around until the sale started. There was a high priced item that I really really wanted to get and I wasn't sure if it was on sale. I asked 3 people who said it "probably" was on sale. When I got up to the check out it was not on sale. But the manager gave it to me anyway!!!!! I got it for 1/2 price! YES!
So when I got home I heard little pitter patter feet running up the steps. I could not believe at nearly 1:00 my children would be awake. Greg was asleep and Aussie met me at the door. That little stinker. Then he started asking all kinds of questions, "Did you get what you wanted to get? How much did you save?, etc."
Well I wanted to go to CVS tomorrow to get some of their great deals, but I have no more money left. So I think I'll go to bed and sleep in!
I think I'm done with all of my Christmas shopping. I just need to get one more thing for sure and I think I'll get that closer to Christmas.
Good night! And Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Black Friday!

I started to make doughnuts, but it was actually harder than I thought it would be and I decided I really didn't need to do that.
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. I am excited that our church for the first time will host a Thanksgiving lunch. Then we will go to Dana's house for dessert. I made a YUMMY peppermint dessert and Mason made cupcakes.
Sometimes she can be such an angel.
Happy Birthday to me! I get to get my picture taken with me kids, with no complaints.
She very quickly got annoyed. Can you tell? LOL!
Well here it is as a reminder:

Dear God, Please bless each and every person that receives these bags. May it be a great meal that they wouldn't normally have. Please let this food physically nourish them but may it also spiritually nourish them. Please let them know they are loved!
In Jesus name, Amen.
