Dobble Dobble Dobble!
Reilly marched around in Mima's shoes while dancing to the parade! And we cooked, and watched, and danced, and had coffee. This is the reason Thanksgiving is my favorite. The whole sunny, cooking, relaxing, dancing, almost-Christmasy morningtime.
The next morning, we decided the best way to combat exhaustion was to get up and go shopping at the outlets at 4:00 in the morning. I mean, it totally seems logical to me. It was our first trip venturing into Black Friday, and we had SO much fun. We avoided discount stores and giant stores, who shall not be named, but where people tend to get shot and stampeded. We went to this beautiful outlet center that had a massive lit up tree, with an ice skating rink around it! The sales were great, and the people at the stores were in surprising high spirits for having worked all night. We had yummy coffee, and me being preggo had doughnuts as well. It was so relaxing and enjoyable, and we had ridiculous amounts of laughter as well - what could be better?
We had such a great time, and Reilly now says "Dobble-dobble-dobble!" We love being thankful. :)
