Black Friday Shopping

It's been a tradition in my family for several years to go Black Friday shopping, not just for the deals but for the fun of being out in the crowds and well somehow the excitement of shopping that morning is like the excitement others get at auctions and such. Normally I go with my mom, when she is here, or by myself and talk to her and my sister on the phone in Montana, so we are always doing this together. Aside from enjoying the Montana contingent of Black Friday shopping today, having Mark along, and our friends and their daughter there was also this little cutie that tagged along...

...and did great! He was a little dismayed when we woke him up at 2:30am and made him wear both a jacket and a coat, it was 22 degrees, so that we could drive the hour into Columbia, have breakfast and still make it to Walmart a good half hour before the doors opened at 5am. He stayed awake all the way into town and then enjoyed the shopping and only really started petering out on us when we got into the fabric store. Charming as ever he rode around with the fabric, but when it was time to go home he was pooped and ready to go. After some significant nappage he's up and ready to go again, but this time I think we'll just hang out at home, eat some leftovers and play.

As you can tell he's no worse for the wear and still having a Happy Thanksgiving!
