Shopping Shenanigans

Okay, first of all it's officially the Christmas season!!!! So now I can listen to Christmas music (music that I have been listening to for about 6 weeks already) without feeling guilty that it's not close enough yet. Yea!!
So I went shopping today, on Black Friday, for the first time that I can remember. Not very fun. I LOVE getting good deals, but not at the expence of my sanity. Hence the reason I don't do Black Friday. But my mom and my and sister-in-law wanted to do a little shopping, so I thought sure why not? But they wanted to go to JoAnn Fabrics. The only place worse, I'm convinced, is Walmart (where it's possible to actually die shopping). Okay, the people were all actually very nice, but the line for getting your fabric cut was about and hour long. So not fun! And not worth it for me since I wasn't getting that much. My mom and Shellie on the other hand were like those crazy ladies that can't get enough! Their shopping cart had, and I'm not exaggerating, at least 60-70 bolts of fabric in it! It took the poor lady who was cutting the fabric over and hour just to cut theirs!!!!!! I left.... I wasn't about to stand around some more. ;) So I went to the mall for more torture.
The mall was busy and crazy and hectic, but it was at least a better use of my precious shopping time, i.e. my time sans kids.
Never again JoAnn's! Never again will I waste that much time STANDING in line!

Why I love autumn...

There's bumpy hayrides,

field trips to apple orchards,

and carving scary jack-o-lanterns.

I love colorful leaves with happy babies,

and family time with big fat pumpkins!

We all love to dress up for Halloween,

and jump in huge, wet piles of leaves!
