Aren't they cute? The also were given matching pajamas.
It was a fun night. When we got home we continued one of our silly family traditions by watching...."Christmas Vacation." Oh, how I heart that movie. We will try to watch Elf together this weekend and finish the Hallmark movie, "A Christmas Card."
Mom and I have a tradition of shopping the day after Thanksgiving. We don't start at 4 but we are usually at the stores by 9. It's kind of our retail therapy ministry of sorts. We have such a blast together that everyone seems to notice us as we shop. Because they are...well... a bit grumpy around this time. The checkout people are always glad to see us. We try to encourage them to hang in there and they look at us like we are a warm drink of chocolatey goodness on a cold winter morning.
But, this year Mom has to work! Bah humbug! Yes, we are thankful for her job, but selfishly I am missing her today. I will be home writing yet another research paper, which is really where I need to be, but it isn't fun...it stinks! Yes, I know I am clearly 3 years old right now!
If you go shopping, let me know what great deals you find so I will feel like I was still a part of the frenzy of shopping the day after Thanksgiving. I will still be here in my robe and pajamas, sipping hot cider and trying to avoid writing my paper.
