Thanksgiving and Black Friday

Thanksgiving is becoming my favorite Holiday because my whole family is here. Alan my older brother comes up every year and spends time with all of us. We go to Mi Ranchitos every year and reserve the big room. It is so much fun, then we take pictures and stand in a line from oldest to youngest. It's a tradition I always want to have. Black friday is a tradition we always have to do too! Oh my gosh, we had so much fun watching people argue, fight, scratch each other over things, men crying in line because they probably did not get what they wanted, the crazy long lists people tried to read in the dark standing in line and listening to them talk about their plan when they get in the store. Turn right when you walk(people did not walk in they ran) then turn left, then right ect...., counting all the people who we think did not shower, watching people run down isles, crowds of people at walmart standing around an item(which they only had 22 of that item) ready to grab when it turned 5 am sharp and watching them push and shove, going out to breakfast, shopping more and seeing the line even longer at stores which wrap around the whole store, glad we are not in the line, pretending to be very dramatic at Kohls standing in line outside, then when we got in the store, we started running to our item, with Angie pulling me by purse handles. I've never laughed so hard! Black friday is the best! We go to laugh and cry from laughing so much, to watch crazy people and pretend to be crazy ourselves. It was the best morning ever, even tho we got up at 3:15 am.


Standing in line at Kohls at 3:30am in the morning with my Mom and sisters and sister in laws. Shelley, Kristen and Shari you have to do this with us next year! We have so much fun when we all get together and my Mom is there every time. She is like one of us, crazy as ever and we laugh and laugh and laugh. Crazy!
Dinner with my brother Alan(second in line by me) who is from Arizona and comes up every Thanksgiving and we go to Mi Ranchitos and sit in the big room. We are standing oldest to youngest. SO much fun!

I LOVE Mi Ranchitos.

I do NOT LOVE Black Friday.

But I love that you approach it with such good humor! At least you weren't at any of the stores where there were gun fights or employees smashed & killed by doors the crowd pushed in on them.

that palm desert toys r us that that the shooting is where I bought most of Carly's baby stuff. That's where we lived!!!!!!! crazy huh? my mother in law was freaking out because she shops there for the kids Christmas stuff.

I agree, it sounds like you have fun with your sisters just being silly. I do not like the lines. I went to kmart and the line was wrapping around the whole store so I left. I went a couple years ago and got in and out quickly but not this year.

Jamie, you should come with us next year. We are pros and we laugh and laugh and laugh. It is kinda scary tho with all the things that went on tho. People are crazy and act like they are going to die if they don't get what they want. Not us, we just go to have fun and be together.

I'm so glad I went to Black Friday! I have never laughed so hard and had so much fun. It was so hard getting up at 3:15; I kept waking up every 20 min. afraid I wouldn't wake up and the gang would leave without me! I want to do it every year! I'm so happy my girls want me to go with them!! I love you all soooo much!
