    Wow, and I thought my posts were short. 😉

    Elf is one of our favorite Christmas movies…of recent years anyway. 🙂

    Way to summarize the week! I can tell you had one of those weeks, which is pretty much a norm during this time of year. But I can also tell that everything you are involved with is all good.

      Sandy – yes, it’s busy, and some stressful stuff going on made it hard to write.

    Looks like a great week! Mine wasn’t bad…and I’m eager to begin a new week.

    It seems like Elf is on the tube constantly now, my husband’s fav. I think we’ve seen it too many times. Luckily we saw Life of Pi last night — like the book – it’s quite interesting.

      Susan – the whole family loves Elf! I’m curious to read your thoughts on the Life of Pi movie. I wasn’t a huge fan of the book, unlike just about everyone else.

    🙂 Sounds like you’re keeping yourself busy, anyway.

    OOH how is the Book Thief on audio?

      Sheila – it is AMAZING on audio – the guy who is reading it reminds me a bit of Neil Gaiman.

    Love, love, love ELF! There are SO many great one-liners in that movie; they just never get old.

    I’m on a Nutcracker Suite kick lately. I can’t get enough of listening to it. ‘Tis the season though, right?

    Have a great week!

      Michelle – we LOVE the one-liners in Elf! We went to a Santa social on Friday night, and when the fake Santa walked in, my 11-year-old Josiah leaned over to me and said, “He sits on a throne of lies!” 🙂

      • Michelle says:

        That’s perfect. We tend to mention the four food groups whenever we make pancakes or even mention the word syrup. And when someone is grumpy, they just became a South Pole elf. I really need to watch that movie again this year (I already saw it once).
