Charlie opening his new fish aquarium. This has got to be one of my favorite presents that he got! It is magnetic and it has these little fake fish that "swim" around because of magnets that move them around in the water. Awesome! It's like pets without any of the annoying maintenance!
Eventually everyone found a place to konk out for the night - even Blake.
The the kids (minus Blake - he doesn't like the cold!) headed outside to de-construct the snow igloo.
Oma, Opa, and YaYa all came over for apple pancakes. Charlie made YaYa a little "nest" in his room because her neck was hurting. It was very sweet. He even brought the table over for her so she could color with him.

Here's what's up right now at the Fletcher house. Shawn and Charlie are sequestered away in Charlie's room with the wrapping paper, doing something very "top-secret". It's got me very curious, but I'm not allowed to peek. :)

The view from INSIDE the garage: All I can say is, WOW! I've never seen so much snow in my life!
~ Reporting live from the Miller home in Gresham, Oregon. ~
We may be here a while!!!

As promised, following are some pics from our first-ever Black Friday experience. We are definitely NOT your typical "consumer-minded" folks. More than anything, we just went along for the fun of watching all the crazies come out before the sun's up just to fight over electronics and socks. But we managed to score a few cool things, while we were at it, too.
Thursday night, we set our alarm for 4:30 am, planning to meet up with our "crew" outside the Miller house at 4:45 am. Well, Shawn had to get up to go potty (I know, too much information) at 2:15 am and decided we should just get up and hit Best Buy - because maybe we'd get a shot at one of their laptop deals. Ha ha.
Next, it was off to Kohl's. We got there a little before 5:00 am. Here's part of our group waiting in the line that wrapped around the entire interior of the store:
We scored a set of Crayola markers for 2.99 at Kohl's. Big spenders, I know.
Next it was on to Fred Meyer for free coffee and donuts:
