I survived "Midnight Madness"!

As we all know, the day after Thanksgiving is Black Friday. Last year the outlets and some other stores in Lancaster decided to open at midnight to begin the shopping early. My mom and my Aunt took part last year and had a blast! Not wanting to miss out on the fun, I decided to give it try this year. I was a little apprenhensive at first because I am usually a pretty early to bed type girl. About half way through I decided.......THIS IS FANTASTIC!!!!

Yes, it was cold and yes there were tons of people but it was so much fun hanging out with my mom and my aunt! It was definitely girl bonding time for the three of us. I am happy to say that we did come away with some pretty awesome deals and I was able to put a dent in my Christmas shopping.

By the time we arrived back at my parent's house about 12:30 the next day, I have to admit that I was pretty beat! But that will not stop me from going out again next year! We have invited my brother's girlfriend to join us and we are looking forward to another great time together!

Our Little Cowgirl

Emma has been learning about cowboys in preschool and it culminated with a day to dress like a cowboy or a cowgirl. Emma was so excited to dress up and go to school. So, with a hat and horse borrowed from her brother she headed to school!
She is was just too cute and I couldn't help but share her picture! She really loves going to school and Mrs. Stauffer says that she is really starting to make friends and to open up with the high school kids. Our baby is growing up!

Trick or Treat!

This year was I think the first time that trick or treating with the kids was actually enjoyable! They are both older now and they actually enjoy the event instead of it just being mom and dad dragging them out!

We went back to our old neighborhood to trick or treat because the houses are close together and they have sidewalks. Plus we know that our old neighbors give out good candy! It was nice to see people again and the kids really had a good time!

These are the moments that I want to hold onto because I can see already that they are going to go by way to quickly!!
