Merry Christmas!

January 2, 2010

We tried to send out Christmas card this year.  We designed them.  Printed various versions.  And were planning on putting together our mailing list, when suddenly we had no time left.  And now it’s January.  Oops!

So I’m going to post our Christmas cards here for the world to see.

Here’s the front:

And here’s the inside:

Onward to a delightful 2010!

Who doesn’t love watching Christmas specials on TV at Christmas time!?  You?  You don’t? You can go sit over in the corner.  The rest of us are going to watch some nostalgia.

Make some steaming hot chocolate, grab a plate of warm Christmas cookies, gather the whole family around the laptop, and enjoy:

Good night and good Christmas!

P.S. I can’t find Rudolph the Red–Nosed Reindeer, How The Grinch Stole Christmas, or The Year Without Christmas.  If anybody knows where they’re hiding, please let me know.  Thanks!  We *could* buy them I suppose.  The old-fashioned way – on DVD!

My momma sent me this pic today of their backyard.   It’s a very different scene than MY backyard.

Winter in Ontario

But Ryan and I built a mountain out of fake snow and a tunnel and then we ran a train through it. Oh! And the whole thing surrounds our happy little three-foot fake Christmas tree. So it’s our little winter wonderland in Hollywoodland. Here’s a pic…


And another…

It’s time to enjoy this (at least) two year old video that has almost become a yearly tradition for me.  Two years ago, I stumbled across it and it made me laugh and smile and giggle with glee for about 15 minutes.  Then I bought the CD.  Please enjoy responsibly.

I’ve been a good girl this year. Ask Ryan! I learned how to make lattes and cappuccinos and I learned all about the business side of the film industry! I wrote a screenplay and did some voicework! I also 1st AD’ed several short film projects!!

Because I’ve been a good girl and a good wife, I’d like to suggest the following toys for your giving pleasure:

  1. digital SLR camera (canon or nikon, I’m not picky)
  2. new mummy bag for camping (20’F or below)
  3. terrycloth bathrobe
  4. Barnes & Noble gift card
  5. REI gift card
  6. Best Buy gift card
  7. long tank tops
  8. stopwatch for running (small and simple)

I’ll add new gift ideas as I think of them.

Thanks Santa! And Merry Christmas!!

Youthfully yours,

I made two pumpkin pies for a soirée. Then I carved the pumpkin. Here’s a picture! Note the Cool-Whip(r) and the bowl of yet-to-be-roasted pumpkin seeds…pa210040.jpg

I must note that I learned you should roast the seeds pretty soon after rinsing them, because they tend to stick together.  Also, the pies were gobbled up!
