We are all piled in the car, the trunk bursting with luggage and our tummies full of Chic-fila. It is about a three hour drive to my parents house. The holiday traffic isn't too bad right now. Going towards the city is a different story. They are already stop and go on the East bound side on the Interstate.
Brief pause for a flat tire. Matt changed it in 10 minutes flat! Yeah… I have a badass husband. On the side of the highway in the dark while rummaging around a full trunk to find the spare and the jack. Just as he was tightening the lug nuts the Road Rangers showed up. We told them we were cool and they drove off with a honk and a wave! Happy Thanksgiving to them for driving our roads and helping to ensure everyone arrives at their destinations in a timely manner.
Arrived safely and got settled in. McKenzie lost a tooth! We didn't even know it was loose but apparently it has been "wiggly ALL week!" Bit of a scramble for the Tooth Fairy. Silly me for emptying my wallet of cash before leaving. Too bad kids can't take plastic. Ha.
Now it is Thanksgiving day. I brought chocolate covered oreos and made deviled eggs and stuffing this morning. This is my Turkey Day MO. My mom seems to like my stuffing and eggs. McKenzie made place cards for the table. Too cute! We even took some family photos. It was a nice day.
Now it is Black Friday. We know one present we are getting. New tires for the Mustang. Damn my tires are expensive. Over $500 for the whole shebang. And that is with the tires themselves being 50% off! *sigh* Cars are expensive. We started the shopping frenzy off right by getting the very last Wii Fit at Sam's Club. The guy behind us told us we suck but we all laughed about it and had a nice breakfast provided by the store. Then off to the tire store. Next was Staples, Walmart, Bealls and Kohls. Not a whole lot out there that we wanted/needed. But we did get some great deals.
Ok this coffee time has spanned three days. Enough. Happy holidays!
