Black Friday....Good Night

This past Friday I participated in my first Black Friday....I know shocking...I am not a big shopper and have to get up at the crack of dawn is not appealing to me. Angela needed to hit Toys-r-us and needed someone to help her to divide and conquer. So Kylee and I said we would go with her. At 4:30 am she woke me up and I asked her if I really needed to go and she said yes. For the Love. We get to Toys-r-us and the line is all the way past RC Willey in Orem and it is raining. Good thing I am from Washington and rain does not bother me. We were on the search for a kitchen set and eyeclops (it is a magnifying glass that you hook of to the TV and you can check out everything and anything. it looks pretty cool). Ang immediately finds the kitchen set and I am still looking for Eyeclops..took me 20 min and a few salesman who had no idea what it was and thought I was nuts..to find it..there were only two left. Mission accomplished!! She stayed in line while I ran for her looking for other stuff, I even told the lady in front of her I would go get her stuff too, such a helper I am...I didn't see any fights..a little disappointed. Kylee didn't quite make it to Toys-r-us!! Then off to target for some games, movies, and clothes for Angela. Kylee finally met up with us. Target was a little crazy, but the lines were not as long as the previous store. Walmart last and final stop, we got there around 7:30-8:00. I was starting to hit my wall..I was so tired and hungry..by the time we left I lasted about 4 1/2 hours. Pretty good for me. I usually complain when shopping with my sisters. I was impressed...I made it about 4 hours before the complaining started. Will I do another black Friday......who knows..the deal has to be worth it.

I wish I would have taken a picture of us...I looked horrid...so did everyone else!! Ha Ha

I'm very proud of you. Can you believe the things that you will do for the love of the little ones in your life? I've yet to do Black Friday...but I would if it meant the Christmas morning happiness of neices/nephews. What a good aunt you are!

That sounds like a blast. I too participated in the black friday mania this year. I was at KB Toys at midnight. Then went back to sleep until 4. Got Ryan and the kids up at 4:30 to go to WalMart. And then shopped at Toys R Us, Kohls, and the Mall until 1pm. CRAZYness! Happy Holidays Kimm-E!!! Since my Christmas with you I always think about your fam around this time. You guys seriously know how to do Christmas up! I still have my first and only grippy socks your Mom gave me! I love them!!! Love YOU!
