We left for our trip on Saturday night, returned on Tuesday afternoon. Wednesday, Stacy worked. Wednesday was a long rough day. Thankfully it was broken up a little bit when Ms. Cindy came to visit. The problem was while we were waiting on Ms. Cindy, Micah decided that he needed to trim my gardenia bush :(
On Thanksgiving day Micah was excited to leave early with Stacy and help do some work in the country before lunch. Patton and I stayed home and did some cooking, some cleaning, and some playing. We rode to the country with Nut and Jerms and got there right as they were getting ready to eat.
I was VERY surprised to see that Lacey's boyfriend and Stacy were Thanksgiving day twins! It was so crazy! I caught myself talking to Joel like he Stacy several times. Thank goodness I didn't do anything other than talk! How funny are they!?!?
Not very many people came to the lunch this year, but Micah was excited that Paige came so that he could have someone to play with.
After lunch Paw-Paw wanted to go on a Gator ride. I decided not to go, Thank goodness, they were gone FOREVER. Plus, I was really scared to ride with Paw-Paw driving! They found several beaver dams in the creek and searched and searched for clover.
We spent the majority of the afternoon enjoy our company and the beautiful day before heading home for a restful night in preparation for Black Friday.
Because Mama had just watched our boys for several days I didn't plan to ask her to watch them while we shopped on Black Friday. We just played it by ear. And they ended up going shopping with us.... But way later than normal. Stacy ended up going out early searching for a cheap laptop, he was successful. The rest of us slept and headed out around 6 Friday morning. Patton was fine, Micah did not enjoy going to Kohl's but was looking forward to Waffle House. AS long as Stacy and I have BF shopped together, it's been our breakfast stop. I'm pretty sure, Micah had only been once before Friday. He chose a waffle and LOVED it, but was still not in the happiest of moods, can you tell?
After breakfast, we headed to the mall. Micah was more excited about the mall than Kohl's. After watching the Thanksgiving parade, he thought he should write a note to the Macy's employees thanking them for doing the parade. Micah has such a sweet heart.... He really does. He wanted to deliver his not to Macy's real bad. I let him.
We waited in line for over 5 minutes. When we finally got to the register the young girl wouldn't even read the note. She kept asking if it was a letter to Santa. Finally I asked MIcah to read the note to her (still not sure she could even read herself) He did. She simply said thank you, and we left. I am SURE that if we had gone to a sweet old lady, it would have made her day, instead that's what we ended up with. Oh well.....
We finished shopping for everyone other than 3 people. I will be completely finished this week, with the exception of homemade gifts.
We came home early in the afternoon, decorated the tree, and relaxed. What a fun filled, busy, busy week.
