Happy Thanksgiving!

This year for Thanksgiving we did our traditional Thanksgiving Breakfast at Gia's parents house and we actually didn't have to leave the state to spend Thanksgiving with Tims family! Our very first Thanksgiving we drove all the way to Oklahoma and last year we drove to Idaho to his Grandparents along with his parents. This year Tim's mom prepared a gorgeous and delicious meal! Although, We were still pretty stuffed after Breakfast though! It was nice to have some of Tim's other siblings up for the weekend! We were Thankful to be together as a family! Each year at Gia's parents all the kids (6 out of the 8) bring a newspaper and we begin our lists and make out a blueprint plan for Black Friday! This is our 2ND year doing Black Friday and we really enjoy the all nighters, trills and excitement that comes with it, along with all the catty people! (Gia is just as sassy and can take anyone down with just a look, LOL) This year we really, really wanted to get a new T.V.. As we are both blind and trying to read subtitles on our little 27" wasn't working for us anymore, instead we would end up not knowing what the heck was said and then to be lost the rest of the shows/movies! I had been secretly been hoarding money every payday for the last 3 months and wanted to surprise Tim so badly with a new TV for Christmas, however knowing that the particular TV probably would not only weigh a 100 LBS but also take up some valuable floor space~So I decided to tell him on Thanksgiving day so he would be able to throw some punches on Black Friday to get it!! So Thanksgiving night, we stayed up all night and headed for Walmart at 1:00 AM! We scoured the store and found the 50" Plasma 1050P that we wanted! We parked our butts on the palette and hung out until the sale began at 5:00 am! At 4:00 am my sister Tahna had called frantic (from SLC) hoping there was an extra TV that I could grab for her. We had 2 right behind us and so I told her to cruz her butt here and get it! Long story short, at 4:35 am there she was and at 4:55 we heard screaming and ripped our TV off the pallet and into the cart! Tim received a battle wound to the finger, but it was well worth it!!! We helped Tahna load her's and made a dash to the checkout to meet Re and Buzz (and of course baby Hurley) and Gia's mom! What a great deal we all got! We were exhausted and went home to sleep it off! We were too excited to really sleep not to mention the sun was shinning at 7AM!! LOL! We called Gia's parents over to help us with the wall mount since Tim and I are not even near "Handy"! We love our new TV and have now become couch potatoes! (Don't know if that is such a good thing!) It was a very fun busy Thanksgiving and Black Friday! Lots of fun memories, full tummies and sleep deprivation! I am so thankful we got to spend the whole weekend with family, and I am so happy and thankful to enjoy another Thanksgiving with my Daddy. We hope to have many more with him... we will keep our fingers crossed and just count ourselves lucky to have another holiday with him! Love you Daddy Nack!:)
