Christmas is right around the corner, isn’t it? Last night we attended a Christmas show at the church and because of last minute plans, The Teen was not able to join us so The Girl’s best friend attended with us. For those who are fairly new to the blog, The Girl is on the right.
There were Victorian carolers.
Funny faces made before the show.
The Hub was there too. He hates for his picture to be taken so getting one that is halfway decent is always a challenge.
The show was great but I did miss The Teen.
Speaking of The Teen, he just found out that he got the part of “Robert” in The Drowsy Chaperone. This is a super-fun show and quite a departure from what he’s used to. It’s a wild and crazy show that will have him singing, tap dancing and roller skating. He is over-the-top thrilled about it and there is a good chance the he will perform some piece of it at the Pantages in Hollywood.
As for this week, I am wrapping up work this Thursday and on Friday we will be at the Happiest Place on Earth, Disneyland. Oh, how I love Disneyland at Christmas! After Thursday I am off until January 13th.
What am I reading?
Not much. I am now at the very Β end of The Abominable and although it’s very good, the payout wasn’t what I was expecting. I’m a little disappointed with where it’s going. There are a lot of books I really need to read but I am not feeling them right now. I think the tone of the one I am reading sort of ruined me for others. Sometimes that happens and I hate when it does.
What am I cooking?
Nothing! Not in the mood today and since I have to head back to the mall (I swore I would not do it!) we will probably pick something up.
What am I watching?
I have been trying to weed through my DVR because it is overloaded with Christmas shows (Frosty, Rudolph, etc.) and I really need to make some space for some other shows. PLUS, I am way behind with my holiday movie watching. Some movies that are “must sees” for me this time of year:
- Christmas Vacation (saw it once but was cooking, need to see it again)
- White Christmas
- The Family Stone
- Christmas with the Kranks
- It’s a Wonderful Life (usually seen on Christmas night)
- Home for the Holidays (Holly Hunter version)
- Love Actually (seen over Thanksgiving)
- A Christmas Story
- Jingle All the Way
There are some others that I sometimes don’t feel like watching and other times love. Home Alone and Deck the Halls fall into that category. I love A Miracle on 34th Street but I tend to watch that on Thanksgiving day.
Well, I am off to see what I can get done. Wish me luck today as I have to hit the mall and bookstore and I MUST finish my shopping.
