update.......... family and black friday stuff.

I posted a while back after things getting messy with family members, my nieces's parents (DH's brother and his wife) that I was going to take a break for a bit.

this was for many reasons, I had a lot to do and was very behind, I needed a break for health reasons, lots of things. It was about 3 1/2 months before I saw the girls again. for me that's a record, and I missed them terribly. It wouldn't have been that long, but I ended up with Pnumonia as luck would have it.

anyway, I'm doing much better now and getting back in the swing of things. We went to their house for thanksgiving while my SIL's little sister and the sister's husband were visiting. her sis is a facebook pal of mine and I was happy to see her! SIL was busy visiting with her little sister so that meant I got to have time with my nieces without the usual hovering of my SIL. we played with dolls, I helped her make out her Holiday list, and we played Wii games.

After dinner we headed out into the world of black friday shopping! We scored all kinds of deals and it went  very well.

All in all, we had a blast!

I mentioned a while back that my niece was starting to behave pretty selfishly and other things. I had made the decision that I would cut back on the gifts I was giving her and give more to charity.  I think it was mainly a stage and she's acting much more like her old self. I think a lot of it is she's 8 and sharing her room with her 2  year old sister. They just made plans to remodel and that will give Niece #1  a  room of her own!

also, I'd heard about how un-sefish her behavior has been lately. so she has now unofficially earned back some more of the girls she wasn't getting.

all in all, things are going much better and I'm happy.

Given the fact that I am sleep deprived from all the holiday shopping, forgive bad spelling and all that...........

hope all is well with you! have a good one!

did anyone else venture in the black friday?

I had heard that Niece #1 was doing things like sharing her 'reward for being good at church' donut with her little sis when little sis didn't get one, and wanting to help a homeless man. I heard that she said when she grows up she wants to be a arcitect and design homeless shelters that will never be full.

my concern for her being too selfish has greatly reduced. :)

it was a wonderful time :)

THAT was a typo !!! sorry we were in line at 9 PM Thursday night and yes the line was insane, one guy pulled a gun on another and I huge fight broke out as the cops were breaking up the ones that were fighting the customers in line behind the fight got the tickets LOL  !! I got one and my husband got one.  If the fight didn't let out I wouldn't of gotten any ticket  I guess going to the ghetto area has it s bennfits bouncing
