Give Thanks

  Yesterday was Thanksgiving - one of my favorite holidays. My parents are both one of 8 children, so I have a huge family, and everyone on my dad's side always comes to my parent's house to celebrate together. It's a great tradition and I love enjoying an insanely delicious meal with my whole family. Sadly, this year we had a smaller crowd (about 25 people) but it was still just as fun! It was also my little mommy's birthday (I call her my little mommy because I am much taller than her) so it was really great to have all of the family there to give thanks McGough style and celebrate my wonderful mother :)
    I'm so glad to finally be back, I had to take a bit of a break from my fun things to get some business done, but I am back! And I took a 3 day trip to Cincinnati to visit Javier's family, where I took a multitude of pictures that will be posted in small bits over the next few days :) I would've posted earlier but I worked all day today for Black Friday! Scary! People scared me and made me think it would be AWFUL, but it really was not too bad after all the crazy middle of the night shoppers left. It was just busy!
Did anyone have any good Black Friday experiences? Bad ones? Any deals? :)

My parents, who just celebrated their 28th anniversary a few days before :)
