David & Aiden ready to see the special Thanksgiving Eve surprise dinner
We all made little Mayflower ships out of walnuts and wrote out 4 things we were thankful for. One in particular had to be something that we were thankful for despite it being hard sometimes. Aiden's was "obey." I was able to text with Jim on Skype while we were working on this project so we were able to make him one too. :)
SURPRISE! "Turkey" for dinner. Made out of pancakes, bacon, chocolate chips, and fruit! Great idea Melissa!

After some much needed preparation and talking ourselves into it, Melissa & I decided to do some extreme Black Friday shopping. We didn't "plan" on making it extreme, but we definitely got some amazing deals and couldn't resist taking pictures of her van while were STILL not finished shopping. :) We started Thursday evening in Goldsboro, stopped in Kinston and New Bern that night/next morning, stopped back home for a quick 3 hour nap and headed back out until 2:30PM Friday afternoon!!! Thankfully Gary took the kids home from Melissa's parents so they all were able to sleep and play while we literally shopped until we dropped, or should I say POPPED! (the van that is)
We got some great deals and can't wait to do it again next year, right Melissa?? ;)
Hope you all had a very BLESSED Thanksgiving!
