Another new was added to the list....I grew up doing Black Friday. However, the Roberts well they have NeVeR participated in Black Friday EVER!! Can you imagine? I was in pure shock. I mean come on surely they had gone out at least once, nope. Therefore I had to do a little BF teaching. First things first explain the procedure, checking the ads. Thankfully Chris and Timmy braved the weather Thursday morning to get a nice fresh paper so I could have all a "hard copy" of the ads.

Of course since it was not their first BF they needed a little reassurance. I don't think his family really understood what it was going to be like. That was until his mom and sister were BRAVE enough to take me to Toys R Us at 9. Okay so I personally wasn't going for a huge item but one I did need. So we didn't want to be there too early...I thought 9 would be okay for a 10 o'clock opening. Plus let's be honest I didn't really want to be out in below zero temps that long. Well our 915 arrival got us about 1/2 way in line. The line wrapped around Toys R Us and back past another major department store. We only had to wait about 30 minutes in line but still it was FREEZING. Poor Teri and Riley had NO IDEA. Then once we entered I told Riley to hold on to me...zoomed straight to the item that was needed. Thankfully I had Teri because she found the perfect check out location. We were in and out in less than an HOUR! Record time thanks to my family.
