The Making of a Black Friday Shopper!

 Does this scene look familiar to anyone?  This is a family tradition on Thanksgiving eve.  After the dishes are cleared, we haul out the paper and pens and start making shopping lists.

 This is the first year that Maddison has shown any interest in participating in the ritual.  She got to go to the local discount store for "Event 1".  Scott took her with him, and he reported that she was amazed at the number of people and activity going on there.
 She is very serious about making a list for her Mom's Christmas gifts.  She has said very little about what she wants for Christmas, but she has a list all ready to give her Dad for what her mom wants.  I love this unselfishness!
Mason is still into picking out what he wants. . . which is mostly Superhero and electronic gaming items.  It is hard to tell in this picture, be he was a little under the weather this Thanksgiving.  He skipped the meal and watched Shrek.  He did manage to eventually eat a little so he could later have some dessert.
I sat out of the Black Friday shopping this year.  I just wasn't feeling the shopping and crowds.   I had fun hearing all the stories and seeing the bargains.  Hope if you participated this year, you "brought it home"!!
