eve of the eve!


Yesterday: Snowed in
Today: Collin's off from work so I have big plans for us!
"First we'll make snow angels for two hours, then we'll go ice skating, then we'll eat an entire roll of Toll House cookie dough as fast as we can, and then to finish, we'll snuggle! "
name the movie

That all sounds absolutely wonderful. I need to do some last minute Christmas shopping. I need to send out some late Christmas cards (I already sent cards to family and close friends... but need to oblige the distant friends now.) And, I need to get the house cleaned up, so that tomorrow I will have nothing to do but snuggle with my kids, watch Christmas movies all day, and drive around town looking at the Christmas lights. How lucky that Collin has today off. My husband has worked through the whole season, and I've barely seen him. I jokingly call him my roommate. Luckily my mom has been here to help me with the kids and Christmas shopping. He doesn't even have tomorrow off. How's that for Christmas cheer (on the part of his company)?

ELF!! My most favorite Christmas movie of all! :) I just like to smile - smiling's my favorite!!!! :)

OK, if you like Elf quotes, then you must GO HERE. http://ellielash.com/ctblog/?p=184

I designed some Elf-inspired wordart for digi scrappers. But, you could always print it off at home and use it as a hybrid kind of thing. ENJOY! And Merry Christmas to you and your family :)

Scrappy Girl said...

That is Elf...one of my top 5 Christmas movies. I just posted about it the other day. My fave part is when he drinks the 2 liter of soda and burps really loud and long and looks at his lil bro and says, "Did you hear that?" LOL! It cracks me up every time.

Your picture is so pretty (as usual). I am loving winter!

You are cute as a button in all that snow. You sure you don't live in Canada :)

Brooke said...

Elf. I just saw this movie for the first time a couple weeks ago. I don't care for Will Farrell so I never wanted to watch the movie, but he did a fab job in this movie. Great photo. Lucky you, it's going to be a White Christmas there. We are going to be having a icy Christmas, or at a minimum a rainy one.

Corinna said...

Elf of course. I love Will Ferrell. I probably wouldn't have known the quote, but just watched it 2 nights ago on TV! Seems like everyone has lately! LOL

Love your cute little coat!

your snow photo is beautiful...okay, we have to ask, do you just get a wild hair and go take a self portrait of all these great shots of you, or does your husband snap away?

Hey, I'm just catching up and thought I'd comment, even though this is so long ago...

A few years ago, my family started calling this day Christmas Adam... because Adam came a day before Eve! :)
