- Mom bought black cherry kool aid instead of black cherry jello for her cranbery jello salad.
- When mom got back from her 11pm run to the grocery store, Larry secretly switched the jello in the grocery bag with another flavor they had in the house. For about 3 minutes we thought mom was losing her mind and had bought the wrong stuff -again.
- Mom cut herself 3 times with her new Cutco knives.
- Mom almost burnt the house down when she turned the oven on and forgot she had been keeping the roasting pan complete with the plastic wrap and label in the oven - burning plastic is not a pleasant smell.
Then Andy's favorite day of the year came... Black Friday!!! Nana decided she couldn't let her little grandbaby be woken up at 4:30, so she stayed home with Emily, who was still asleep when we got back. Since mom lives in a tiny town, there were no mile long lines to deal with. (We steered clear of Walmart!) We bought plenty of fun little things, however I must admit Black Friday is pretty much a boys' holiday, I couldn't find many girly things.
Then we headed down to my dad's house, where my sister was visiting. All the girls had a fun time together.
And I love that my birthday is always around Thanksgiving, because I get to celebrate with all my family. I wasn't going to reveal how old I turned, but the picture gives it away. I am doing OK with this milestone, however please don't point out my gray hairs, that might send me over the edge!
