Sibling Breakfast!

Yesterday, I experienced the madness of all of the after Thanksgiving sales first hand. I've hear of people who give up sleep for a bargain, but never thought I would be one to try it myself. But, excitement is infectious and new experiences with family are fun, so Friday morning at 4:45 I found myself at Walmart with with rest of Prattville and my very excited sister-in-law Michele as well as my somewhat sleepy sisters Lydia, Anna and Jubilee. We did find some bargains and it wasn't actually as crowded as I imagined when I first saw the full parking lot. I found a thumb drive, a gift for Zach, some gift bags, items for the AWANA store, a sweater and more. Actually it was a very successful shopping trip.

After about 3 1/2 hours, we were finished with all that Walmart, Goodie's, Belks, Michaels, and Target had to offer so we headed over to church to have a sibling breakfast! Luke and Michele have never been able to join us for one before so it was fun to have them with us too! I decided we should have it at church since Mrs. Alma who I live with had family of her own over for Thanksgiving. The girls were teasing me because I invited all of them over and then didn't end up cooking much. I started making the bacon and then Michele took it over and I started taking pictures and just watched from that point on! They didn't seem to mind and I told them that I had a very important part in buying the food and pulling it out of the refrigerator!

Shopping and the breakfast was a good start to another family-filled day of more games , food, walks, jumping on the trampoline (and a nap!).

I got up earlier than you did! My aunt picked me up at 3:30 (am!) and we went to Montgomery. We were at Kohl's at 4 o'clock. And yes, I am still feeling the consequences of getting up that early. :)

Hi Miriam,

Looks like you have been having a very good Thanksgiving break. Wish I could be there. I really enjoyed my time with your family last weekend.

Some of your photos are not showing up on my computer. Any idea why?

The breakfast group shot at the church is visible, but not the one above it in this post.

Also the Thanksgiving Day post photo is not visible either. I can see all the others

You went shopping as well, Miriam Rebekah? I thought we were the only crazies. =)

Miriam said...

Miriam, I hope you got some good deals at Kohl's - 3:30 is really early!

John, We have had a good Thanksgiving! I'm glad you've been able to spend time with yours too.

Mrs. Hart, I don't know why they're not showing up. I've added a link to my picasa site at the end of this post so you can see all the pictures there. Are you using internet explorer 7? I know it works in IE7 and firefox, but I don't know if it works in IE6.
