my daughters baptism

My daughter was baptized on November 22, It was a very emotional to watch.

I cant believe I have not posted for two weeks. My Thanksgiving was simple, we celebrated early then on the real Thanksgiving we went to my friends from church. There parents are both on hospice and pretty much just waiting for Jesus to come take them. It was quiet and simple, we just visited and ate. On Monday my friends dad died and the doctor says any day now for the mom. They were married 63 years. isn't that amazing.
I hit the sales on black Friday. I left my house at 3am to get to Kohls. They had a barbie jet priced regularly for 80 bucks and I got it for 30. Then I rushed off to Walmart to get the rockband for 50 bucks. I'm ashamed to say that I had to push and grab to get the last one on the bottom of the stack. Then Saturday my daughter and I left to toys r us at 5:30 am to stand in mine to get a zhu zhu pet. The store opened at 7am but I thought there would be a mob trying to get these dumb little hamsters but by the time the store opened there were only 15 of us in line. We could only get one per household. People are selling these 10 dollar toys online for up to 80 dollars. Crazy..... It is 21 degrees this morning and the weather people are calling for snow next week. Tomorrow is my towns Christmas parade and my daughters girlscout troop will be riding in a float. Ave will also be signing three songs in my church Christmas drama. Im excited about that. My honey wont be back til x-mas eve, he will bring his brother back with him to spend Christmas with us. Im done with all my shopping and my tree has been up since Sunday. yay, I love this month!!!!

Wonderful pictures, so glad that Ave was baptized. Glad you enjoyed your Black Friday Sales - malls and shopping in general is something I tend to avoid. Hope your holidays are terrific,
