Checking off my bucket list: Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade! and a Facebook Frenzy Freebie!

Friends, I wanted to take a moment and just say thank you for sticking by me over the last few weeks!  I've been so busy with school and the holidays, but I wanted to share with you a great experience I had with my daughter, "24" over Thanksgiving break.
My brother in law was able to score tickets to the Macy's Day Parade on Thanksgiving Day.  You really don't need tickets, but we were able to stand in a designated section, and we weren't 5 deep on the sidewalk.  That made the experience a little nicer because we weren't in this crazy crowd.
Here are a few of my favorite pics... sorry a few are a little blurry!
We took this one for my son who chose not to stand outside with no bathrooms in the freezing cold. LOL
Who can't love these minions!  The crowd went wild when they rounded the corner!
We were also pretty excited that the Robertson clan from Duck Dynasty was on a float.  This is such a funny show for me to watch with my kids.  
And finally, the family shot.  We got on a train at 5:45 in the morning to cross this off of our bucket well worth the cold!
BTW.. that my brother in law {MESSARE CLIPS AND DESIGN} that has been making the awesome clipart! Had to give him a shout out! <hee hee>
Welcome Santa!!  This was a great experience!  It got us really pumped up to start our Black Friday shopping the following day.  

I HAD to have one the Duck Dynasty Si cups after seeing them in the parade, we didn't buy the mask, but how funny is my son in this!  I found these items at Kohl's by the way, if you have a Duck Dynasty fan in your household, and you need to make a fun purchase!
Are you finished shopping?  I have barely begun this chaotic part of December!  I need to get my act in gear!  Let me know if you have found any awesome bargains! 
ALSO!!  There are a few more hours for you to go and grab these fabulous products in a blog scavenger hunt that my friend Erin from I'm Lovin Lit has put together.  Go {HERE} to get started.
I'm also participating in a December Facebook Frenzy for grades 6-12.  There are a ton of awesome products that people are giving away during the frenzy.  Like my Facebook page at the top to get started.  I donated my Algebra Properties Match-ups Cards.  You can check out the product {HERE} but if you like my fb page, or you are already a follower, you can get them for FREE until December 9th!
