Happy Thanksgiving

We had a pretty low-key, but Happy Thanksgiving. I went to CVS in the morning (they started their deals at 7:00 on Thanksgiving, it was a moral dilema for me to go shopping on the actual Holiday, but the deals were irresistable) I got almost $100 worth of products for $1.71 out of pocket. I also started with about $68 in ECBs (my CVS $$) and ended up with $83!! Then we went to watch Ken play in our ward's Turkey bowl. Abe had a blast walking around with all the other kids there. The Boyers came over for our meal. We prepared the turkey, gravy, stuffing, sweet potatoes, and Ken's famous Pumpkin Cheesecake. Tami brought mashed potatoes, biscuits, layered Jello salad, and an apple pie. It was all so delicious. I could resist several snitches of the turkey before it was even cut! The Boyers stayed the night so we could head out bright and early on Black Friday. Unfortunately, we were pretty dissatistified with the deals and Jared is the only one who went out early. Tami and I hit up JoAnn's around 9 for $1.49 a yard flannel. We had a nice relaxing Holiday. I'm so grateful to have a wonderful family and wonderful friends. I'm grateful for our health and for our membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Wish we could have been there. I was equally unimpressed with the Black Friday options. The CVS stuff sounds awesome!!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I have never gotten up early for black Friday deals, and I have only once went in a store on black Friday (at like noon). I worked retail on those days and don't care to get the black eyes that come with black Friday shopping.

Happy Thanksgiving

What in the world did you get for $1.71?! You are one serious bargain shopper Queen of America! Jordan was throwing up at 1:00am Black Friday morning and I couldn't take it any longer, so I headed out for the first time ever to see if I could land any hot deals! The mall opened at midnight, so I spent most of my time there, but definitely did NOT score the same kind of deals you did! I'm glad you had a nice Thanksgiving!!

Hurray for CVS, the only one who didn't let us down. Thanks for having us even though we kept you up all night. Thanks also for helping out with Dallin. You saved my life!

we were THIS close to going to cvs. There was one about 20 minutes from us, but we didn't have any cvs bucks stored (actually didn't have account yet). Oh well, could have made out like bandits.

This black friday was the craps
