SMELLS LIKE CHRISTMAS

"Not now Arctic Puffin!" - Buddy the Elf

"If I woke up tomorrow with my head sewn to the carpet, I wouldn't be more surprised than I am now." - Clark Griswold

Aaron and I watched Elf and National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation last weekend. I think I could spend a whole day with my vocabulary consisting solely of lines from those movies. That would be one hilarious day!

I also watched an old Christmas movie from 1947 called It Happened on 5th Avenue. It was pretty great. One of the main characters is the actor Charles Ruggles. He played the grandfather in the original Parent Trap. It made me think of this scene.

Grandfather: My dear, what are you doing?
Susan: Making a memory.
Grandfather: Making a memory?
Susan: All my life, when I'm quite grown-up I will always remember my grandfather and how he smelled of tobacco and peppermint.
Grandfather: Smelled of tobacco and peppermint. [starts chuckling] Well, I'll tell you what. I take the peppermint for my indigestion and as for the tobacco [looks around] that's to make your grandmother mad.
{Grandfather knew from the moment he saw her that Susan wasn't Sharon.}
{Grandads always know.}


In other news...

I enjoyed lunch yesterday with two Lovelies at Magnolia and I had blueberry pancakes... You like sugar, huh? Is there sugar in syrup? Yes. Then YES!

We've been decorating the house... Lotta sap in here! Mmmm... Looks great! Little full, lotta sap.

Enjoying non-stop Christmas music... The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.

A few Christmas parties...It's just like Santa's workshop! Except it smells like mushrooms.

Some Christmas shopping...And make sure you get yourself something real nice.

Some cooking... Save the neck for me, Clark.... Oh it's just a little dry, it's fine...Here's the heart. oh oh and and I have to eat! So I can take my back pill.

Hope you're enjoying the Holidays!
