Happy Thanksgiving!

I love love love Thanksgiving! Getting together with family, eating turkey, mashed potatoes and a ton of desserts, says the perfect holiday for me! This year was a little weird for us because our baby brother, well not really a baby anymore, is in Peru on his mission! Although he wasn't home to celebrate with us, he definitely was there in spirit! We took a picture to send to him for Christmas which was a lot of fun and I think it turned our really cute! Crystal brought her fiance Matt home to meet the whole family! I'm surprised that he didn't get scared off yet with all the craziness of all the niece and nephews! 

This morning 2 of my sisters and I went shopping for the Black Friday sales! Can I say MADNESS! Most stores opened at 4 am, but that was too early for us so we woke up at 4:15 ish to get to the stores around 5.  This was my first time shopping on Black Friday so I was anticipating standing in lines for hours. We actually got really lucky and got everything we needed and didn't need to stand for hours in lines! Yay! I cant wait for Christmas to come, it is my favorite time of year and the best holiday to decorate for! :) I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving!
