We made it back to LA from Texas! What a great Thanksgiving week with the family. Lots of food, love, and laughter made it so unforgettable! I can’t believe how time flies when you are having fun. I am already looking forward to the next year! Photos coming soon. 🙂
Now, it’s time to get ready for the holidays! My absolute favorite time of the year, besides Thanksgiving, is Christmas. Even though we won’t be here, it doesn’t stop us from doing the usual holiday decorating, gift giving, and baking holiday desserts. We also watch National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation and drink eggnog with Brandy……
Clark: “Where do you think you’re going? Nobody’s leaving. Nobody’s walking out on this fun, old-fashioned family Christmas. No, no. We’re all in this together. This is a full-blown, four-alarm holiday emergency here. We’re gonna press on, and we’re gonna have the hap, hap, happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny fucking Kaye. And when Santa squeezes his fat white ass down that chimney tonight, he’s gonna find the jolliest bunch of assholes this side of the nuthouse.”
HAHAHA!! This is one of my favorite quotes!
