We are so blessed....

Yesterday was such a good day. Mark and I usually head home from his parent's a little past Wyatt's bedtime smiling that it was a successful holiday. Thanksgiving just seems to be one of the holiday's that runs so smooth for us. We spend the night Wednesday night at my parent's and get up to breakfast with my mom's side. So fun...same food every year: homemade biscuits and gravy. After breakfast and some relaxing we head back home. Thanksgiving has been at my parent's the past few years since my g-pa passed away. Everyone still brings their normal dishes and we eat lunch about noon. There is more relaxing and more people loving on Wyatt. ;) About 1:30 Mark and I load up and head to St.Louis. It's usually a quick drive...we have lots to chat about. Ha! I snapped this photo of Mark and Wyatt's hands yesterday during prayer at my parents.


We got to Mark's parent's a little after 3pm and there was already a houseful. Mark's mom hosts Thanksgiving for both sides of his family together. It's a lot of people and lots of food but it's always a great time! After eating we all talk about our Black Friday shopping plans. Most of the women in Mark's family have shopped Black Friday since FOREVER. LOL! Since I have been around I have joined in the fun. Fun doesn't describe's CRAZY! Since the stores were opening at midnight I went home and slept for a bit before being picked up at 11:30. This year I joined then at Target for a few hours but then had to head back home. Prego just wasn't feeling it...Mark has clinic today so it's just Wyatt and I hanging out. I didn't want to be to tired or crabby with him today. We plan to set Christmas up sometime this weekend. It's been a tradition to set it up today but I don't see it happening. Mark and I talked about it last night and it's something I don't want to rush. I don't want to get stressed about it or while setting it up. I will so it slowly and calmly. LOL! Happy Black Friday everyone!
