do YOU have? We only have one....well...kinda...we do get together for an hour or so with the hubster's family on Christmas day....but for the most part, we just have our own Christmas. I live 1,000 miles in any direction from any extended family, but am blessed enough to have my kiddos right here...so we have pretty much just one Christmas.
Tonight Jake, the hubs and I went to see Four Christmases. Very funny! We just love Vince Vaughn...he's so funny in all of his films! The guys like the baby puking parts the best...or should I say Vince Vaughn's character's RESPONSE to the baby puking. It was classic. Comical!
Also comical was the trip to the ladies room AFTER the movie! It was like watching Mission Impossible 5----Femme Maneuvers. Okay--I'll set the stage...the restroom was actually CLEAN...it's a nice theater....yet several of the women must not have had the use of their opposable thumbs or something. Opened the stall door with the elbow....flush with the foot (I'll give them that)....turn on the faucet with the elbow...pump the soap with their wrist.....prompt the disposable towels out...again with the elbow......after drying the hands...hold the towel...open the door with the towel...hold the door ajar with their foot....take on a weird Twister style pose and try to lob the used paper towel in to the waste basket while holding the door open with said foot....God forbid our HANDS should touch anything!! I decided to be BRAVE and I pumped the soap with my hand....dried my hands....and *GASP!* opened the door WITH * MY * HAND! So far...I'm still alive....I'll have to check my vitals later though and make sure some weird strange germ didn't infiltrate my immune system. I'll let you know if my trip to the ladies room causes any strange symptoms. LOL
The movie capped off a busy day! Jake, Emmitt and I had some quality time together...running errands...had a nice lunch of Godzilla rolls, California rolls and sushi (Emmitt napped in the car)....strolled thru Hobby Lobby (again, Emmitt napped)...they had quilt batting on sale for 30% off, so I picked up some of the Hobbs fusible to try. I have --ahem---a few quilt tops I could probably quilt myself and save some money.....so yeah...I'll try the fusible because I detest pin basting! Has anyone tried the fusible yet? Wondering if there's any special tricks? I also picked up a lovely pair of scissors..Klasse....had a 40% off coupon to use. Done at Hobby Lobby. Ventured on to the mall...picked up a gift for DD at Bath & Body Works...she loves that store! Then I had another coupon that HAD to be used this weekend at Yankee Candle...yay! New scents! Wandered in to Zumiez so Jake could check out the shoes and sweatshirts....strolled around a bit....then called it a day.
I've laid out some Jo Morton fabrics....tomorrow I may work on my Jo's Little Women Club quilt.....it's been a great weekend! I am going to TRY and not dwell on the fact that it's almost over.....*SIGH* If only every day/week could be like this 4 day weekend...with a little ENJOYABLE work thrown in........soon it will be that way! I just know it!
How did YOU spend your day? and how many Christmases do YOU have to endure and/or enjoy? :o)
