Good Monday morning gang...hope all of you had a great weekend..I sure did..we had the baby for the weekend and Angie and the boys came down on Sunday and spent the day so I had all my grandkids and my great granddaughter and my daughter with was such fun..The boys have grown since I saw them last and the baby grows and gets prettier everytime I see her.

I got so tickled at Josh this weekend I have to share this..Now I know we all remember when we were young parents and especially with our first, there were times when we got scared and frustrated and just didn't know what to with a crying screaming baby that wouldn't hush!

Kaylen had a cold this weekend and didn't feel good..seemed like every time we put her down she cried..especially when it was time for a diaper change..except she was really BAD with her dad. I watched him struggle with those one piece outfits, you know the ones with all the snaps, and her SCREAMING her head off..he would finally get it on her and pick her up and she still screamed..he walked with her and talked to her and she's till screaming..finally he would say take her Nana..and when I did she immediately got quiet..and start smiling at me..Josh got so upset and I explained to him that babies are so smart they sense when the one holding them is scared or nervous and they get that way too..and they cry.

I wasn't sure he believed me until Angie shared a similar story with him about when Gage was a baby...and then he seemed to see the light..oh new parents gotta love em..

Now for some BIG NEWS..Thursday is Thanksgiving as you all know..and do you know what the Friday after is?  Black Friday and do you know what Black Friday is?   Well briefly Black Friday is  a day you have to LOVE shopping and MASSIVE CROWDS and PUSHING AND SHOVING and go shopping that day! For some families shopping on this day is as much a tradition as Thanksgiving Dinner.

Although Black Friday, as the first shopping day after Thanksgiving, has served as the unofficial beginning of the Christmas season at least since the start of the modern Macys Thanksgiving Parade  in 1924, the term "Black Friday" has been traced back only to the 1960s.

The term "Black Friday" originated in Philadelphia in reference to the heavy traffic on that day."Black Friday" is the name which the Philadelphia Police Department has given to the Friday following Thanksgiving Day. It is not a term of endearment to them. "Black Friday" officially opens the Christmas shopping season in center city, and it usually brings massive traffic jams and over-crowded sidewalks as the downtown stores are mobbed from opening to closing.

This year some of the designers at DSO are having Black Friday SALES the entire day after Thanksgiving.  EVERYTHING in MY store will be on sale for 40% off. Its a one day only sale that ends Midnight Friday November 28th. You get all the benefits of a Black Friday Sale with none of the hassle. So mark your calendar and get ready for some great savings and lots of fun..

For your freebie today I have the frame from the layout I did
