insta black friday

Shopping today is the last, last thing on my list.
I have never been a black friday kind of girl.
And this year is no exception.
My son wished otherwise.
He wishes that I would have camped out at Best Buy last night.
But oh, the torture.  It's so not worth it to me.
Today we're watching Elf and will probably get some
Christmas decorations out.
I'm still struggling with some chest issues from a lingering
something that just won't go away.
And it's making my energy really low.
So a low key day we'll have.

But first it's insta friday.
I'll work backwards because I want to start with Thanksgiving.
I wasn't so great at taking a lot of pictures, but I got a few.

Happy Day after Thanksgiving everyone!

a quick chalkboard decoration.
I was very last minute this year with decorations for
both halloween and thanksgiving.  
It has been a full season.
They are so eager to help.
Set the table and were ready to go
long before the food was.
Every year my dad dawns his famous Turkey shirt
for Turkey day.  And he resumes his role as
the master carver.
It was a mellow Thanksgiving for us.
And I liked it that way.
The next series cracks me up.
It's her before pie.
During pie...a little too big.
And after, cracking herself up.
And before it got dark, this day requires a good
walk around the neighborhood.
With very full tummies and hearts.
I used no filter on these next two..they were just too
vibrant all by themselves.
A frequent part of our routine has
become stopping at the dog park.
The girls used to beg me to go even before we
had our own dog again.
But now, we have plenty reason to let Piper play.
I don't know who enjoys it more.
The girls or the dog.
Another huge event they were counting down
towards, was finally using the trial 
horseback riding lessons I got at a fundraiser
last spring.  They were literally in heaven.
I have pictures with the good camera which will
be on here one day soon.  
But we're having computer issues with uploading 
at the soon.
It was a beautiful day and I was really proud at how much they did and learned.
We've had a couple of doctor and dentist visits.
They've become waiting room pro's.
And finally, I'm loving the fall leaves.
The light, the air.
It's different this time of year.
And it's my favorite.
Happy Friday!

I've never been a huge Black Friday shopper, for what's it worth... I just can't justify spending all that time to save just a little money!

Hope you feel better!
