It was a great Thanksgiving weekend.  We were surrounded by family and it was fun.

Thanksgiving Day brought us to my inlaws house.  The entire family gets together to hang out and have some yummy food.  This was the first time M got to eat Thanksgiving food.  Last year she was too young.

The following day, instead of getting sucked into the Black Friday shopping, we decided to do something different.  We went to Balboa Park and hit up the science museum there.  It’s a great experience.  There were tons of hands on exhibits.  Little M had so much fun playing with all the things there.  We also walked around to some of the gardens, chased pigeons, spent some quality family time.  Just me, Hubby, and M.

That night my parents and brother came so we went out for dinner.

Saturday, we went out for lunch and wanted to go walking around.  The initial thought was to the mall, but we decided on something else for a change. 

I’ve lived in San Diego for just about two years now and I take for granted all the touristy things that one can do in this city that is just practically in my backyard! 

So we took the family to La Jolla Cove.  That was a very fun time.  Little M did NOT like the sand at all.  Hopefully by next summer, she’ll be over it so we can have some fun at the beach. 

Sunday we finally did some shopping.  I didn’t make the slightest dent into my Christmas List, but I still have some time..

How was your thanksgiving weeked?

Black Friday is coming up…

That means Christmas shopping will be starting up soon.

I’ve got my list, and I’m pretty sure we can find gifts for everyone on the list.. I just have one that I’m unsure of..

Little M.

This is her second Christmas.  She’s fully aware of how to open gifts, play with toys, play with boxes, play with paper.. etc. 

But what am I going to give her? 

My parents are most likely going to get here that Rockstar Elmo that plays the drums and sings songs.  M loves watching Elmo sing whenever we find ourselves in the toy aisle.

I was going to get her the first and second season of The Fresh Beat Band and both CDs of their music.

But, I can always let her watch episodes off of Netflix.. so why spend the money on the DVDs?!?

She’s also very much into Dora the Explorer.. so I can probably find something for her Dora-related..

I just don’t know what to get her..

I think I’m going to have to take her to Toys R Us and let her roam the aisles so I can see what sort of toys she is drawn to.  Then I can make my selection from there..

How did you decide what to give your toddlers for Christmas?

So.. I’m not the traditional “black Friday” person that camps out in front of a Wal-Mart.. or ventures out to stores at 2am.. nope.. I love my warm bed and adore my sleep.

That being said.. I was still able to participate in some Black Friday festivities.. at MICHAEL’S CRAFT STORE!!!

They are having some awesome sale items.. and Cricut cartridges are about 60% off!  It’s amazingly cheap.. and I love that!  I bought two cartridges.. a ton of paper.. and all these doo-dads.. and odds and ends.. and crafty markers and stuff..

Hubby seemed overwhelmed.. hahah..

I didn’t want to do any other Black Friday shopping.. other than Michaels..

Great thing is that they had all these coupons I could print out.. one for every day of this weekend.. today there was a 25% off entire purchase coupon if used from opening til noon.. then.. there was a coupon for 50% off a single item to be used from noon til closing..

We did the obvious thing and hit up the store TWICE.. gotta love my patient, understanding hubby that totally went along with it all..

I think we tackled our first Black Friday together with much success..

Hope everyone else had a successful day today..
