Merry Holidays

“First we'll make snow angels for two hours, then we'll go ice skating, then we'll eat a whole roll of Tollhouse Cookie-dough as fast as we can, and then we'll snuggle.” – Buddy The Elf

I’m prepared and ready to face the big day!  My presents are wrapped, my turkey is defrosting and my tree lights are glistening against a backdrop of a winter wonderland. I would start the official “Here Comes Santa Countdown” but I wouldn’t want to warn the naysayers to his arrival down south – I mean, who wouldn’t want to try to catch Santa on Christmas Eve….

I can’t wait until later this evening when I can curl up on the couch with Hughie and our cups of steaming peppermint hot chocolate to watch Scrooge (1951) and our yearly tradition ELF. We may just have to add in Garfield’s Christmas; as we both seem to miss it this year when it aired on YTV.  This is my favorite time of the year, not because of the gifts and all the commercialism but because of the family time that Hughie and I share together.  We are hoping that next Christmas we will be able to share that time together with our extended & immediate families back home, however until then we will just enjoy our time together with our two little fur kids.

May all my readers have a SAFE and Happy Holiday Season. 

It's just like Santa's workshop! Except it smells like mushrooms... and everyone looks like they wanna hurt me...”  - Buddy The Elf

SANTA!!! SANTA!!! I know him!

Elf is a tradition in our house, too! It's my all time favourite Christmas movie. Will's is National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. So we watch them both. Merry Christmas and I hope you enjoy your quiet evening. We're looking forward to ours :)

I love Elf too. Maybe I should make this a tradition with O when he gets old enough. Merry Christmas!
