Mission Impossible---NOPE--Mission Accomplished!!!!

We got up at 3:30 a.m., it was more of a nap for me as I did not go to bed til midnight!!!!!Headed for Target!!!!! Had to get a special electronic item for someone!!!!!!The line wrapped around the building, but we still got in and Got what we went for!!!!!!
After going home and sleeping for a few more hours it was OFF to the Mall!!!!! I was almost done with my shopping until my Darling husband said this year for his employees it's not dinner and movie gift certificates, it's gifts for all of them and then we will play a gift exchange game with all the gifts at our Christmas party in a few weeks. So that meant about 30 or more gifts to buy!!!!! I had made a list and checked it twice and I was on a Mission to get this stuff bought!!!!!Here is a picture you will probably not see for along time, I can only think of ONE other time my husband shopping with me on Black Friday!!!! I think because Camdyn came along, he was game on!!!!!

Camdyn recognizes Build a Bear from just seeing it in the mall or even at Costco if she sees the Gift Certificates for it, so walking by at least once was virtually impossible!!!!No tears this time, we told her instead, let's go ride the train!!!!!
Some of my favorite decorations!!!!!I love the natural beauty of these decorations!!!!
Time for that train ride---choo-choo!!!!!
This is what happens everytime she has to get off, except it is getting more dramatic, it started with just a few tears, then it was crying with her hands over her face, now it is a full bend over, to get the full dramatic effect!!!! Our little actress!!!!!! We have to tell her the train is going night-night and she happily gets off!!!!!
My back seat filled with $5.00 diapers from Babies-R-Us, we need them still for Camdyn and future babies!!!!!!
My trunk!!!!!Camping stove, dart board, Knife, flashlight, sunglasses, watch, wallet, beer mugs, margarita glasses, shot glasses, booze---oh the list goes on and on!!!!!
Oh there just might be something in there for me!!!!!!!
Now to wrap it all.........hmmmmm......any Santa Elves out there??????

Thanks for coming along for our yearly early shopping trip! It was fun as always and great to have dad come along! Such a trooper and a big help too!:)

Gracie said...

Oh my Jamie ...were do you get the energy to get up so early? It sure looked like a blast though!
Whenever Bylla cries out for her daily "show" I cant help but do a little smile before I indulge her... and pick her up and plant kisses all over her cheeks in comfort:)
PS: I love your Christmas header pictures and your Christmas background...very festive!
Blessings to you and Merry Christmas
Love Tracy

What a fun exhausting day....and weekend....But I love it!
Love ya

I am sure we could have had some funny stories had we been shopping together that morning......OH MY! Jennifer bent over to pick up a box and I hit her in the rear with the cart and knocked her over in front of 2000 people in line...they all got a laugh...I told them the next show would cost them....only one free entertainment! She wanted to kill me...but I was asleep and didn't see her!

You have a lot of energy! I just can't bring myself to shop that early or in that kind of crowd! Since my grands live so far away, I'm ordering their Christmas and having it shipped straight to them! Not that I've bought any gifts so far!

Hello Jamie,
Sounds like such fun!
Love the pics. I hope to drag my hubby to a BLACK Friday one year so he can see it for himself. It's a hoot.

My Daughter-in-law, daughter and myself got up around 4:30 and went to Wal-Mart and K-Mart. I have never seen so many shoppers before in my life in one store!
Had such fun.

Took a nap and then went to the Mall that evening with all 4 Grandkids.

Would I do it again? YES!!!!! I would.

Take care,

Debra said...

Girl my hat is off to you! I'm not a Black Friday person at all, but I sure wish I had all my shopping done. I've not even started yet!

Lovely pics of the little one!

My son, Thomas, and I went out about 6 and got some great deals too and then the rest of the family met up with us for lunch. We gotta keep the economy going , right? By the way I took NO offense to your eating out reference. More keeping the economy going. I do know how we all want our families together on holidays and I know you are thankful your kids have jobs and ones they enjoy. We weren't a complete family for Thanksgiving either (because of the economy)We're used to it being a 'military family' but it's never easy. By the way our 20 month old grandson recently started with the crying fits too, what's that all about? My poor daughter gets so embarrassed LOL Kathy

So much fun for all of you! That is too cute with Camdyn and the train. I hope your back starts feeling better soon. I am sorry to hear that it has kept you away from training for this long. Prayers your way!! I hope you and your family had a very blessed Thanksgiving!

Rettabug said...

I am soooo amazed that your hubby went shopping with you on Black Friday!! That would NEVER happen around here.
Your DD & Camdyn are just beautiful & I love your new header.
Thanks for stopping by & leaving such nice comments on my mirror move.


Oh, & DH had one grand that was a real drama queen. He used to call her "Sarah Heartburn" LOL
