    Watching National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. Cousin Eddie is my spirit animal.

    I have to watch it every single year. This is what I like in movies and entertainment - humor. Even if it's a little cheesy or grotesque. If it doesn't make me laugh, smile, or get me out of my own head it's not good!

    The day I quit laughing boisterously at this movie is the day someone needs to check my pulse! Some years I watch it twice before Christmas!

    The local movie theater is showing Christmas movies on Saturday at 1pm for $5. We went to see "Elf" on November 30th. That was fun. Last Saturday was "Gremlins" and this Saturday is "Polar Express". No, sorry... not interested.

    On December 21st, they're playing "Christmas Vacation". Yep! Count us in... we'll be there!

    Christmas Vacation is definitely one of the best Christmas movies ever. Love it! Watch every year along with Christmas Story. 🌲

    Post Re: What Are You Doing Right Now

    Yesterday I spent the entire day decorating the tree and helping my parents prepare for having the whole family here (grandkids included) for Christmas. It was exhausting, although I was happy to help. They've become too old to do it themselves.

    Today, we have quite a project. We are going to take a big family photo while the whole gang is here, including my sister's new husband - a big family portrait. The photographer has suggested we all wear the same color. The only problem is we don't all own the same shade of forest green, which is what we decided the color should be (I'm thinking this makes thing difficult - why not an easy color like navy - but anyway).

    So the bright idea is that I should go shopping and find shirts for everyone today. Mom and Dad are coming with me.

    I have a feeling this is going to be a huge nightmare. My parents cannot stay on their feet too long without tiring out and being in pain, yet they insist on coming, and while I have a concept of what I want in terms of shirts (I'm thinking of henleys for everyone ), can we really find nice forest green henleys in everything from XXL to youth large for the guys, and for three ladies that wear petite sizes and one who is tall and skinny like a model? And one woman insisting she wears a medium but if I buy her a medium it is not going to fit her because no, she does not really wear a medium anymore? NIGHTMARE!

    Henleys are extra special if purchased from Duluth Trading Company.

    I think you should try for matching pajamas. LOL!

    Oh, no! (Shudders at the thought). I sure hope that everything went as well as it could, or better yet, opted to simply all wear solid color shirts....or order on the internet and get next day delivery. I am the one who gets stuck with those kinds of projects in my family ("single people have so much free time", don't you know), so I can relate.
    I hope the rest of your holiday is stress-free!

    So sorry for all the stress, Soda. Hope it turns out okay so that in the future whenever you look at the family portrait, it will give you good thoughts instead of a nightmare. I'm sure the photographer is well-intended, but, this isn't a wedding that takes months to plan. If this suggestion had been made months ago, that would be one thing - but, as you said, what are the chances of being able to match the wardrobe for a large family of all shapes and sizes in a moments notice at this time of the year? Yeah - thanks a lot photographer!
